    2018 MLB Season

    Yeah, I know it is probably tough for you. The Brewers haven't been terrible since they finally got back to the Post Season in '08 and won the division in '11. They've were on the cusp, but couldn't put it all together. So Attanasio kinda looked south and studied how the Cubs went into rebuild mode without creating a dumpster fire for a few years. Hired Stearns away from a World Series champion team in the Astros, and he quickly got to work. That process got here a lot more quickly than expected. To call the Brewers a crap organization, is an oversight. Brew Crew Nation isn't alive and well, and damn near selling out Miller park every night because they are a crap organization. I would actually say they are one of the classiest in MLB. And me and the entire Crew Nation around the world, some of the most down to earth, cool, calm, collected, and knowledgeable. #ThisIsMyCrew

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    A few markets I just thought of that could be extreme possibilities are St. Louis, Sand Diego, and the Bay Area, mostly Oakland, but could tap into Niner fans upset that they left the city limits for SC. That covers A midwestern and two West Coast franchises. Add them to the always mentioned San Antonio and Orlando. Ant that makes five viable locations, that are football hungry, the first three probably the hungriest jilted cities. The hardest thing with any start up league now is there is so much over saturation in certain areas, especially with football between the NFL and NCAA. Is Birmingham still a sought after city, when New Orleans and Atlanta dominate that area, plus the NFL's junior division the SEC. There just aren't that many untapped prime markets out there that they have to go into at least a few already established areas, and that costs them a little, or a lot, in that entertainment dollar source. If you live in the New York area, and the XFL came back, would you rather spend your live football dollars on attending ONE Giants or Jets game a year or every other year. Or, would you rather buy season tickets to Hitmen 2.0? In the same vein, I always think of the possibility of this happening in Milwaukee. On one hand it would be cool to go watch a "pro" team play in my city 8 games a year. But I already have the Packers and Badgers in my backyard, so I would rather spend my money on tickets for the rare games I can attend. I'm very intrigued to see where they end up setting up shop and start playing games.

    Brewers @ White Sox looks so great today. Both wearing '83 Unis.

    Hall of Very Good

    Donald won't get into the NFL HOF, unless maybe he is a part of a down year class and they need bodies. But, he will definitely be inducted into the Packers HOF and Ring of Honor. His number 80 though will not be retired by the team. I don't really see Green in Driver's class. I think he stands out due to being a really good player on some of our "bad" teams since 2000.

    Logos associated with failure.

    Yeah, that was a sad day when they announced that they were. Boston Store has been a downtown staple since before I was born. It's also going to be a very heavy blow to The Shops of Grand Avenue, which is pretty much a glorified food court with a TJ Maxx at the toher end from Boston Store.
  7. Hopefully Pepsi takes a page out of the Miller Lite playbook, and I am hoping that they are in stunting mode with this. After sales go through the roof, because I'm not much of a soda drinker either, but have been drinking Pepsi a little more at work because I actually feel like I am in these cans. They go back to this full time.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Shaddup lol. This looks right to me. He came back "home" and it is the uniform that SET the career home run record in. We have Hank Aaron State Trail here in Milwaukee, and a statue outside of Miller park, and his 44 rightfully hangs on the outfield wall underneath the roof there as well. If it wasn't for those two years here, that doesn't happen.
  9. Longtime baseball man and great humanitarian Davey Nelson died Monday at 73. He started his career with the Indians, and played for others, most noteably with the Rangers where he is one of only a few to steal all three bases in the same inning. For me he has been a member of the Brewers organization for almost 20 years, as a coach, a director of alumni relations, and broadcaster with FS Wisconsin. I got to meet him a few times when I worked at Miller park, and he always had a smile on his face and a nice thing to say. He will be missed. He wasn't the most polished broadcaster, but his enthusiasm for the game and the Brewers resounded and his zeal for life was amazing. http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/news/brewers-davey-nelson-dies-broadcaster-mlb-news-obit/8tp0rv53jmc619ogdyoud0mfx

    2018 NBA Post Season

    It looks like the Bradley Center still has some life left in it after a couple of fun games this past weekend. I'm feeling the #Bucksin6 movement for this series. The team is definitely gelling at the right time.

    New Carl's Jr./ Hardee's Logos

    There's one a few blocks from my house. This is awesome news, and can't wait to see the retro look applied to the restaurant.

    Diamondbacks bringing back bullpen cars

    I might be a little hazy on this, but I pretty much remember in the 90's the Brewers used to use a Harley with a side car for their version of the "bullpen cart." When MLB got rid of the concept, the pitcher would just walk out and the Harley would just go around the warning track stopping at the Brewers dugout so the bat boy or bat girl could grab the warm up jacket. At Miller Park I think some sort of Toyota goes around the track when relief pitchers come in.

    PyeongChang 2018

    Watched the ski jumping last night with my sis and bro in law. We gave it the MST3k treatment. We were trying to figure out what was going through their minds and came to the conclusion it's, be really skinny, or as I said the politically correct term is aerodynamic, go down the ramp really fast, and a combination of don't die/don't fall. Also that wind graphic was both cool and ridiculous. The end result, though was that those guys are pretty damn brave.

    PyeongChang 2018

    You should tell that to the IOC. Great tune. I wonder if any of the Atheletes of Russia thought the same thing? Morning session of Skiing and snowboarding qualifiers on NBCSN now.

    2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Hot Stove in Milwaukee is alive and well, dfwable hit it on the head. Thanks to this generation, which in many cases here is our generation of MLB General Managers aren't going to overpay talent. This is the anti Scott Boras class of GM. The same agent that has represented guys like one of my faves Prince Fielder, and others. The days of free wheeling, kiss stealing, woooooo, sorry wrong thread.... Is Over. The GM's today are the same that grew up like us who are looking for actual bang for their buck. The free agent to be can't break the bank or the future anymore. David Stearns has one more move up his sleeve, but is closely guarding it. Starting with Sabremetrics, the economics of the game started changing, and now it's caught up. Agents don't have the power anymore, the teams do.
