Are you a sucker like me who missed out on Opening Day tickets and now find yourself forced to buy tickets off of the secondary market? Doesn't it suck? I mean, most of the people at the game aren't even going for their love of the Brewers. They're going to drink. Most of them won't even make it in for the first inning. Hell, I know some people are going just because they heard the Packers are going to be there. What the hell is that all about? In many ways Opening Day is a lot like New Year's Eve aka amateur night. People like us go to bars year round, but all the people who don't come out on New Year's Eve and act like idiots. WOOOO! The calendar year has changed by one! We are all one step closer to death! YAY! Who gives a crap? Act like an adult. (Says the guy who did a keg stand in his boxers.) Still, Opening Day holds a certain allure and I don't want to miss it. It's a fun time when the Brewers play their first game at home and I've been for the past few years. I want to go again.
So, the secondary market it is. For pretty much every game for the rest of the season I can end up going to the game for less than face value, but for this one I have to pay over market value for tickets. What to do? Read the rest of this entry »
Welcome to a new feature here at Miller Park Drunk, the Comment of the Week post. That's right, a long time favorite of lazy bloggers who don't feel like writing a full post is now featured right here on the #1 fringe Brewers blog on the internet. You see we love when people comment on our articles, it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and that's why we make it so easy to do. Did you know you don't even have to enter your name? It's true. Commenting is fun and easy. Who knows, if you play your cards right and start commenting next week we could be recognizing you in this very space!
This week's Comment of the Week comes from an older post, but is just too good not to recognize. The post "JASON KENDALLS EX-WIFE IS DATING ROD STEWARTS SON" was originally posted in March of this year so whoever found this post had to be searching something specific.
The original post was based on Jason Kendall's ongoing divorce from his wife Chantel and her new boyfriend, Sean Stewart, son of Rod Stewart. In the post we featured a quote where Chantel accused Jason of being addicted to Adderall. Later, after the post was published, Jason answered her claims by saying:
"I attribute those changes to the fact that I was married to an alcoholic and drug-addicted woman who abandoned our children, regularly punched me, and was unfaithful."
So yeah, other people's drama is fun.
Anyways, this week's Comment of the Week comes from Some Random Drunk with a Los Angeles, CA IP address (Sean Stewart? Another spurned lover? Diehard Kendall fan? Haha, just kidding like Kendall has a diehard fan.) who said:
She is a hooker. She has been paid for sex. She uses babies as a way to trap men and money. She is drug addict whore. Someone needs to tie her tubes. Waste of space trick ass bitch.
Good work crazy anonymous commenter, congratulations on being the winner of this week's Comment of the Week. Live it up.
Kind of a slow week huh? What do you want me to write about, Trevor Hoffman: middle reliever? Umm, no thanks.
We'll be back tomorrow with some nicer posts, but until then we are off to Miller Park to enjoy some daytime baseball and daytime beer and daytime brats, but mostly just daytime beer. Sweet, delicious daytime beer. Maybe I'll tweet during the game if I can get a signal in Miller Park. (Sidenote, screw you AT&T for not always working in Miller Park.) Otherwise enjoy today's musical guest, Metric. Go Milwaukee baseball team.
You may notice a slightly different look on the website as well as the Yardbarker bar at the top of the page. There will probably be a few minor cosmetic changes going on for the next week or so. I doubt anyone cares, but for the three people who do here's what's up.
What does it mean? Miller Park Drunk is now a part of the Yardbarker network. They asked, I said yes.
Why? To gain a bigger readership and possibly make a little money.
Will the content change? No.
Seriously, will the content change? Okay maybe there will be a few less f-words (not that there was tons as it is), but overall no.
And that's it. Nothing more to see here.
Now, let's beat those Twins. Let's do it for Johnny!
Apparently some of you didn't like the whole selling out thing and honestly, we're sorry to hear that. I thought he did some interesting stuff even if he was a douchebag. (By the way, did you catch my review of Wrigleyworld? It may have been lost amongst the idiocy, but I am rather proud of it.) However, you should all be happy to know that I have returned the Playboy with Sable on the cover along with the fifty bucks and we won't be seeing Chad around here for a long, long time.
Anyways, you're mad. I'm sorry. Let me make it up to you. Read the rest of this entry »
