The Brewers are moving to Orlando and I don't know about you guys, but I'm going with them. Think about it. Disney World! Universal Studios! Epcot Center! The Brewers! Throw in Wesley Snipes from Demolition Man a cute girl from my class and it's like my grade school wet dream. I am going to miss all of you, but I think myself and the team will be much happier there. Nice weather, good team, good location. How could this possibly go wrong?
I love Retro Friday at Miller Park. Some out there will rail against it saying that we need to leave the past in the past and that the team needs to forge it's own identity and blah blah blah, to which I say screw off. Saying we should get rid of the ball and glove logo is like saying we should get rid of the American flag. You know who wants to get rid of the American flag? Terrorists.
Luckily for us and the safety of our nation, the Brewers agree with me. In fact they are taking retro Fridays into the future for their 40th anniversary and turning them into four retro weekends. Let me tell you, they sound AWESOME. Continue reading
Jeez. You people are crazy for this place.
It's an extra 150 yards to save $7 I can use on beer.
@millerparkdrunk you sir are horribly misinformed. Giants lot is the best lot. Fast exit, pee hill, sax guy playing eye of the tiger

That lot is the best lot at MP.

I have to agree, the lot is not too bad of a place to park. Easy in and out and not really that much further that the back of Fingers or Money, which is preferred parking thus costing more. I think Yount got more of a shaft that Molly.
Vince, the other commenter is correct, they named the three big lots after the three biggest names…Molitor’s happens to be a ways away. As for who got a bad draw, did you see the Spahn lot? That might be Potawatami’s parking garage.

The Molitor, Yount, and Uecker lots are where I usually park for games. These consist of the average Brewer fan looking to enjoy the game for a reasonable price in general parking; its really not a far walk. I think Spahn got the shaft here. That lot is terrible: theres no tailgaters, full of miller park workers, and you walk next to a junkyard on the way in.
Okay, I get it. I do. People like that lot. Sorry for bashing it.
In my defense I come from the south and normally park in the Uecker or Yount lots. When I get to a preferred game late they will push you forward towards the Spahn and Molitor lots. In order to get to the Molitor lot from that side you have to drive on some crazy back road (which I assume is where the Spahn lot is located, next to the meth lab) and then under a creepy bridge. I had to pay a troll toll to get inside Molitor's hole. Once there? The party was great, but I wanted to get to the game and I had to walk quite awhile to get there. (Through a parking lot! Under an interstate! Through a traffic light! Through all of preferred!) That's all. Sorry for dissing your favorite lot weirdos.
Brew Beat has a great piece about some of the upgrades at Miller Park taking place this season. Lots of cool stuff like $1 Uecker parking, more shopping and an improved smoking area. (Even though I don't smoke I will always have a special place in my heart for the smoking area after I joined a friend out there and we saw see two girls making out. I'm pretty sure they lost that day, but I will always remember that game.) They also took the liberty of renaming the parking lots, thus ruining my perfect memorization of them, after the great Brewers legends of all time. Yount, Uecker, Cooper, Spahn, Fingers and Money are all covered here. One player, however, seems to have gotten the shaft from the team. Take a look. Continue reading
Contrary to the video above that is NOT the worst seat at Miller Park. Tonight the worst seat in Miller Park will be the one I am sitting in (or depending on your point of view, the one next to mine). Why? BECAUSE I AM FREAKIN' SICK!
Seriously, who gets sick in the middle of August? Can't I get sick during Packers season or when the Bucks are playing? I blame the fair. You think carnies have any health codes? Doubt it. That corndog I ate Sunday night was probably touched by more unwashed hands than Lindsay Lohan's breasts. So thanks to them tonight instead of a beer, I'll be drinking... I don't know, what else do they serve there?
Taking the day off to attempt a recovery in time for the game.
