I think the last remaining member of the "Trevor Hoffman is just having a slow start" bandwagon fell off yesterday and now we can all finally accept that Trevor Hoffman is done as a closer. He doesn't have it. He throws right down the middle and he doesn't fool anyone. Is this a person in the world that was honestly surprised that Glaus hit that homerun? I didn't think so. Yesterday should be Trevor Hoffman's last chance to be the Brewers closer and he shouldn't get a chance to hit 600, at least with the Brewers. Sorry guy, it's been a nice career but it's over. How do I know? Because at this point, even the animal kingdom hates him and animals are stupid. If they hate you, you must really suck.
Hey, it's time for one of those year end clip shows that you love so much. You know like that time on Full House when we saw how much we truly loved and appreciated Uncle Jesse after seeing those old clips. There was no need for him to move out of the house with his family, he could just live in the attic!
Miller Park Drunk has only been open a year, but we've published over 300 posts in that time period. Call this the best of 2009, call it The Beginner's Guide to Miller Park Drunk, call it whatever you'd like, here it is.
BEST OF THE BEST
Don't You Forget About the Brewers: John Hughes, director of such classics as The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink, died this year and the Brewers paid him a tribute.
The Happy Youngster is a douchebag who makes us all look bad: This post really put us on the map with links from Deadspin and other major blogs. It also inspired this idiot to call us "a blogger who gives drunks a bad name", sold a few t-shirts and was semi-popular on tumblr. Not my favorite, but definitely worth mentioning.
Brewers Flow Charts: I have no idea where this idea came from, but it's definitely one of my favorite of all time.
Witrado's Quest: One of the weirder endeavors we have ever done did a fine job of getting the Witrado hatred out of our system. Not that we like him now just that it doesn't bother us as much anymore.
THE RUNNING SERIES: I loved this if only because Brew Crew Ball to write:
"If you have a vague interest in Brewer baseball, but wish there was less analysis and more profanity on this site, then Miller Park Drunk's RUNNING series might be just the ticket for you." Continue reading
Hey just because the Brewers aren't playing anymore doesn't mean that we can't caption a bunch of pictures of baseball players with LOLCats-esque quotes. Here's a few of our favorite moments from the first week of the playoffs.
Well the All Star Game has came and gone. Fielder only got a single at-bat but did get an RBI double, Hoffman pitched well in his appearance, Braun didn't embarrass himself in right field and the National League lost yet again. Oh yeah, and Prince won some sort of batting practice contest. Let's relive the past two days with the magic of LOLBREWERS. Continue reading
