One of the funniest things about the "Brewers blog scene" is the way everyone becomes completely obsessed with the little things that don't matter (John Axford's mustache, Ryan Braun's hair, Nyjer Morgan in general) and the way it really pisses some people off. I understand both points, although I admit I don't really understand them at times, but I do feel like I get them. Ryan Braun's hair is a thing that needs to be talked about (because seriously, what the heck?), but does it need to be talked about by the guys who I go to for my sabermetric analysis? Sometimes you just want the numbers, you know? Save the Nyjer talk for the bar.
This is why I have always tried to avoid labeling this site or being too numbers-y. When we write about mustaches we don't want it to make anyone mad. That's just not who I am or what I want my site to be. The goal of this site has always been to be a site that Brewers fans find entertaining. We write about the Brewers a lot, but we're not trying to be. We're trying to be a site for Brewers fans. We want to make you laugh, make you think (we're cool) and just be a fun site to read. Maybe sometimes we don't update for a month, but that's because we don't want to be un-entertaining. We like to cover what you're thinking about and when we're not doing that we just want to entertain.
My point is this: some sites talk about Nyjer Morgan/Ryan Braun's hair/John Axford's mustache/Corey Hart's tattoos and it doesn't fit, but at this site we don't have that problem. We can talk about those things and it fits because that's just what we do and have always done. So before the season gets started we wanted to take a week to celebrate that kind of talk before the actual playing of the baseball takes over our lives. We want to make fun of the way Ryan Braun dresses, talk about how you dress and take a closer look at some of the Brewers' wives. It's what we do. I think you'll like it. Have we ever let you down before?
Now let's meet the boys and girl who will be guiding you through this week of dresses, handbags, two button suits and Ryan Braun.
You know, me.
I like sweater vests, dress shoes, professional wrestling and the Milwaukee Brewers. My personal fashion icon is Joel McHale because holy shit can that dude wear some clothes. Although sometimes I copy the outfits of Joseph Gordon-Levitt because, you know, chicks and stuff. I may be the only person you know who saw that David Beckham H&M commercial during the Super Bowl and said "I have to get those."
What can I say? I got style.
When you think of fashion you probably think of a lot of people: Johny Depp, Gisele, Kate Moss, Calvin Klein or some other fashion icon. What you probably don't think of is Tyler Maas. I mean, I love the guy but he kind of looks like a homeless, graying Dave Grohl and that is on his good days. The truth is that you would be completely wrong to think this. Tyler Maas, despite his outward appearance, is a fashion icon. For one, he designs all those swank Forward Fabrics shirts you see everywhere nowadays. For another he has a personal style that is unmatched among anyone that I have ever met in my entire life. I've never met anyone in my entire life that dresses quite like Tyler and I've never met anyone else in my entire life who could dress like Tyler. He is the very definition of fashion.
See, girls do like me?
Steph is probably the fashionista-ist fashionista I have ever met in my life. I am constantly sending her pics of me in outfits seeking her approval. (She was not a fan of my birthday suit.) There is no one I would trust more with my personal style than this chick right here. I really don't know how she does it. Maybe it's because she is like 60 years old and goes to bed at like 9:30. She is a cool ass chick with a dirty ass mouth. Also, she loves the Brewers.
Together we will be guiding you through this week of fashion, fun and Milwaukee Brewers baseball. We did some good work here and I think you're going to really enjoy it. I know we enjoyed doing it. So without any further ado....
LET THE FASHION BEGIN!
