The Weeks of the Storm

milwaukee brewers September 6th, 2011


I just read this. So I wrote this awesome awful average? come on give me average poem.

It's my site, I do what I want.

It is coming and it is loud.
It is strong and it is proud.
It is coming, it has vowed.
It is not a call that can be dropped.
More like a train that will not be stopped.
Or a bubble that just won't pop.

Like a tornado, throwing things around.
Like an earthquake, tearing up the ground.
He is both and he is none.
He's like a hurricane that makes you run.
He is your hopes and your dreams.
Your tears and your screams.
You love him, but he don't love you too.
It doesn't matter because he'll make your dreams come true.

He'll be back soon in a limited role,
but the whole he will fill,
Could fill my soul.
Rickie's on his way so you better get ready.
Weeks is coming back, it's time to rock steady?

"Steady rockin' all night long"?
That is a song by the Whispers,
But Rickie Weeks won't be quiet.
His return is much more likely to cause a riot.

In my pants.

FIRST PLACE!

“He’s going to be out awhile” is Roenicke speak for the season is over

milwaukee brewers July 28th, 2011

We don't know much right now. We don't know exactly what's wrong. We don't know how long he'll be gone. We don't know who will replace him. All that we know is that Rickie Weeks got hurt tonight and the sky started falling.

Maybe it's just a sprain. Maybe he won't be out for long. Maybe his 15-day DL stint is just that and the Brewers won't skip a beat. I want to think these things. I want to believe these things. Yet I can't shake the image I saw tonight. Rickie Weeks, the man who takes fastballs to the face and laughs it off, the man who stands in the middle of the plate like Happy Gilmore at the batting cages just for kicks, the toughest of all the Brewers; laying on the ground unable to get up and stand on his own feet. His season flashed before my eyes and with his season went the Brewers season. There will be no playoffs for this team. The Brewers' season is over.

(Hang on a second. How am I doing? Does it sound like I'm really shaken up? Do you think I'm giving up on the season because Weeks got hurt? Are you buying this?) Read the rest of this entry »

The Best and Worst of the Milwaukee Brewers first half

milwaukee brewers July 13th, 2011

We've reached the halfway point of the season (not really, but MLB likes to pretend that the All-Star Game is the midway point of the season so we're going to go with it) and the good news is the Milwaukee Brewers are currently tied for first place. The bad news is everything else. After years of hoping for success the Brewers are finally experiencing some and we've found there are a lot more problems at the top. It's just like the plot of every movie ever.

It's been a very strange first half of the season. There are so many things to be happy about (Prince, Braun, Weeks) and so many things to make you angry (Greinke, Yuni, McGehee, Greinke again, Yuni again, Greinke) that you end up looking at the day's boxscore and the result tells you how you feel about them. Outside of being busy (and lazy) (and drunk), the unpredictable nature of this season has limited my writing the most. I didn't know what to write.

There has been ups and downs, but the Brewers are in a good spot. They're in first place. (Hey, have I mentioned they're in first place!?) Let's take a look at how things stands at the end of the first half. You know, cover all the bases (see what I did there?) and just for fun we're going to do it "Best and Worst" style (without permission) like Brandon Stroud does at With Leather every Tuesday for WWE Raw.

Childish Gambino lyrics on Rickie Weeks (adult language)

milwaukee brewers June 23rd, 2011

When we wrote that post about how we wanted to say things to the Brewers while they were still in first place we had this to say to Rickie Weeks:

You play chicken with a mack truck

This, if you didn't know, was a reference to the Kanye West and Jay-Z song "H. A. M." When I think of HAM I think of Rickie Weeks. He is synonymous with it. He is the baddest player on the Brewers and probably the baddest in all of MLB. Rickie Weeks is H. A. M.

So then I thought I should just post a bunch of pictures of Rickie Weeks with the lyrics to that song on them (like the picture above), but then I realized I didn't really like that song that much and that every single lyrics seems to have the n-word in it. Then I thought since I'm basically stealing the idea from the awesome Hipster Childish Gambino that I might as well just do Childish Gambino lyrics since they are so much better and there are so many awesome ones to choose from. So there you have it, Childish Gambino lyrics on Rickie Weeks pictures. Let's do this. Read the rest of this entry »

Your 2011 Awesomely Bad Milwaukee Brewers jokes

milwaukee brewers March 25th, 2011

Who doesn't like a good pun? More importantly, who doesn't love a bad pun?

Baseball can be kind of a boring game in between all the really exciting things that happen. There is a lot of time for conversation and with conversation comes jokes. Good jokes, dirty jokes and most of all bad jokes will be strewn across Miller Park this year more than Miller Lites. You will hear a lot of jokes at the park this year, but almost none of them will be good. You have to learn to expect them so that you aren't caught off guard by them. You need to be prepared for the polite laugh you are sure to give the co-worker you don't really like that much or the lonely uncle who offered to buy your ticket. Luckily for you, we have the inside track on the hottest bad jokes for 2011. We can see them coming before the bad joke teller can and we're going to share them with you right here. Preparation is the key to success. Or something. Read the rest of this entry »
