Ryan Braun on Free Ryan Braun

This Ryan Braun stuff is out of control and it is only getting worse. Please try to remember that nothing concrete has come out. The MLB has not publicly commented on this matter and they won't until a decision is made. You have to think they seriously regret that this has ever come out and wish that it never did. All we have to work with is the leaked info and it doesn't really tell us much. Ryan Braun tested for high levels of testosterone. And then he didn't. That's all we really know right now. Before we jump to conclusions we should think long and hard about this. We should consider it from all perspectives. Right now, Ryan Braun's perspective.

Hi, I'm Ryan Braun and that picture you see to your right is me. (Damn, I'm good looking.) I play professional baseball for the Milwaukee Brewers. I am a former first round draft pick who won the National League Rookie of the Year in 2007. I am also a four time Silver Slugger award winner, a four time All-Star and I won the 2011 MVP. Since joining the Brewers in 2007 we have made the playoffs twice, two more times than the Brewers did in the previous 25 years without me.

Outside of baseball, I have business interests in two restaurants in Wisconsin: Ryan Braun's Restaurant in Lake Geneva and Ryan Braun's Graffito in Milwaukee's Third Ward. I endorse a variety of products for Wisconsin businesses and also have a variety of nationwide of endorsements. Surely, you've heard of my Limelight Fusion Energy drinks or my personal line of Affliction shirts called Remetee. The odds are if you are watching TV right now, you will see me. I'm everywhere.

I have built my baseball career and my business career through hard work and protecting my personal brand. I work hard to keep myself out of controversial situations and I am a generally good person with integrity. Continue reading →

Ryan Braun’s Tavern and Grill does not have raspberry iced tea, proceed accordingly

Look, I like to drink beer. Lots of it. Beer is so, so tasty and I like what it does to me (mainly stop crying), but sometimes you can't drink beer. Sometimes you're in church. Sometimes you have to work later in the day. Sometimes your girlfriend tells you that if you have one more beer she will smash a bottle over your head. These things happen. At times like these I like to drink a little bit of raspberry tea. It's sweet and it has a nice flavor. Plus, it's fun to say. Go ahead and say it. Raspberry. Now say it like "rah-sperry". Funny right? I love raspberry tea.

Ryan Braun's restaurant in Lake Geneva does not have raspberry tea. The food is good, even if the menu is a bit weird. Seriously, can a brother just get some wings? Or how about an entree that I can pronounce? Are you trying to make me look stupid on my date or something? Carpaccio, amatriciana, gnocchi, honestly I feel like you are just making up words here. Like I do when I am losing at Scrabble.

I had a steak sandwich for lunch and it was probably one of my favorite steak sandwiches I've had in a long time. It was actually medium rare, thick pieces (not slices) of mozzarella, oven roasted tomatoes and a steak sauce that I really enjoyed. It was really good. I sat at the bar (because, seriously, where else would I sit?) and the girls were nice and knew their stuff. They were, of course, bored out of their mind because there was maybe four people in the whole room, but still. The beer selection and everything seemed decent.

Still, it's a classy joint. Continue reading →

The ultimate guide to Ryan Braun

We love the Milwaukee Brewers and despite popular belief we love Ryan Braun. No, really, we really do. We've gotten heat in the past because of the way we have portrayed Ryan Braun and for good reason. Whether it's his Lake Geneva restaurant, his Milwaukee restaurant, his t-shirt line, being single, sticking his tongue out, his comments about the pitching last season, LikeMe.Net or anything else, we've gotten a reputation for not liking Ryan Braun. You have to realize that this all just isn't true, I love Ryan Braun. I would sleep with Ryan Braun if I had to. He's my one of my favorite Brewers. It makes me excited that I get to see him play.

Looking at that history I realize that I've probably written about Ryan Braun more than any other Brewer and that I really know a lot about Ryan Braun. I know why he's great, I know why people like him and I know why people don't like him. I might be the world's foremost expert in Ryan Braun and if watching Spiderman has taught me anything it's that girls nipples look great when their t-shirt gets wet. Oh, and something about responsibility. I feel that I must share this knowledge with the world to better educate you in all things Ryan Braun because if I don't, who will? Continue reading →

Ryan Braun’s Tavern and Money Pit

moneypitI've heard so many rumors that Ryan Braun was opening a restaurant in Lake Geneva for so long that I just assumed that it was true. (Kind of like Rod Stewart having his stomach pumped.) I've know about this for awhile, but didn't want to post about it just in case it wasn't true. One day the sign out in front of the restaurant was changed to say "COMING SOON BRETT FAVRE'S STEAKHOUSE" which was funny, but also made me think that there was no way it was Braun's place because no way he'd think of something that funny. Well, it all turned out be true and yesterday news started to trickle out about it, topped off by the great Adam McCalvy doing a full write up. In the write up McCalvy says:

A group of investors led by Madison lawyer Patrick Sweeney finalized a licensing deal with Braun and Major League Baseball this month. The group is spending more than $1 million on upgrades to a former Mexican restaurant at 430 Broad St. in Lake Geneva, a resort community about 50 miles southwest of Milwaukee's Miller Park, and the idea is to open for business within 6-8 weeks.

And then:

He got a first-hand look at the progress of the restaurant on Sept. 6, the same day Braun and his teammates executed their now-famous celebration of Prince Fielder's 12th-inning home run that beat the San Francisco Giants.

Now I've worked in and around restaurants for most of my life and if there is one thing that has been said at each and every establishment that I have been fired for drinking from it's this: "The most expensive seat in a restaurant is an empty seat." With the idea being that you can have the best service, best food, stiffest drinks, the sluttiest waitresses and everything else in the world, but if there is nobody there to eat it the restaurant will fail. By their own doing this restaurant has had it's door closed since September and all summer long before that. Why? To spend over $1 million on upgrades to a place that wasn't that messed up to begin with. Of course. Continue reading →
