Why would a non-soccer fan get up early to watch Denmark lose to Holland? In my case, I'm doing it in an attempt to get on an earlier schedule all-together. What do you think is the ideal time to wake up if you don't work in the morning? There's something nice about the morning air in Madison that I could use.
The big event this weekend was the State Democratic Convention. I attended the second day and had a variety of post-worthy interactions, including a talk with Mark Pocan and a short interview with Sen. Herb Kohl. However, like most good crunk clubs, all the best action took place outside, in the parking lot, where Mark Neumann staged a protest press conference, and later GOP Executive Director Mark Jefferson made an appearance and called Neumann's charges against Walker "without merit."
Check in later for discussion of the convention. For now enjoy this burger from Red Robin, courtesy of Eating in Madison A to Z.
