When you go to a baseball game at noon and then proceed to stay out til bar time, that's a long day. My thoughts of the game are this: Yovani is awesome and what the hell were the Pirates thinking having Snell throw 130 pitches (and why, oh why, did they try to steal with two outs and Braun at the plate while Snell is throwing his 129th, 130th and 131st pitches to Braun? Tired pitcher/best hitter. This isn't brain surgery.) I had fun making fun of the Pirates bullpen quite a bit and at one point told them "don't even wait for the call, just start throwing." Seriously, it's not like he was throwing a perfect game.
Anyways, Yo's awesome and that's all that matters.
Did anyone enjoy the live twittering of the game? It was a bit difficult and my friends were a little annoyed with me, but I thought it went off well. I get a lot of @replies, so that's cool. Let me know what you think and I might make it a regular thing when I go to games.
Also, today is the last today to Become a Fan of us on facebook and win two tickets to the 5/13 game against the Marlins. They are looking like they will be Field Outfield Reserve which have a face value of $38/ea. So we got that going for us. So, do it already. 125 people can't be wrong.
Alright, that just about wraps things up for this week. This weekend's series against the Astros should be good as Minute Maid Park is a good place to hit home runs and that's just about our biggest strength. I don't think I'm going out on a limb here when I say one of the three games will feature 10 runs scored by a single team. I need to take a couple days off to figure out what has happened in my life that led me to thinking that writing as if I was Alyssa Milano was not only a good idea, but would be a lot of fun. I'm no doctor, but something doesn't seem quite right there.
We launched this site in early February as a little something fun to do while putting off productivity. Since then we have had over 5,750 pass through the doors in just over two months and the readership continues to grow. This is obviously beyond our wildest expectations for whatever this site could be and we thank everyone for your support. As a way to give back to our readers we are going to be giving away two tickets to the Wednesday May 13 game against the Florida Marlins. These won't be Terrace Reserved tickets, they will be actual good seats. The drawing will be completely random and is open to the first 250 people who become a fan of Miller Park Drunk on facebook. Depending on the turnout we may add a second prize after 250, but for now we'll leave it at this. There is no catch here, just us giving back to our readership. The drawing will take place on May 1 where we will announce the winner in enough time to mail your tickets. Maybe the winner will even get to have a drink with us at the game.
(If this game is not good for you or you live outside of Wisconsin we can work something else out, but you have to win before we get to all that.)
UPDATE: Forgot to mention that we are now on Twitter. Do us a favor and promote this contest by tweeting "@MillerParkDrunk Just entered Miller Park Drunk's ticket giveaway http://tinyurl.com/dba27a for 2 free GOOD seats" and follow us.
Do you like baseball? More specifically do you like the Brewers? Do you like tailgating? (Bad question: everyone likes tailgating.) Have you ever missed two or more innings of a game in the parking lot? Do you know how to play bags? Do you consider yourself good? Have you ever made more than one trip to the port-o-potty in an hour? Would you consider living in the parking lot of Miller Park if money wasn't an option? Have you ever drunkenly said to someone "why can't they just play out here?" After a loss, have you stuck around after the game for a couple of hours anyway? Let's say you had a kid, if you were to name your child after where it was conceived would it have a name like Sausage Haus or Friday's Front Row bathroom?
