Bumpy road for the Brew Crew

Milwaukee Brewers fans know how Damocles must have felt with the razor-sharp sword hanging by a thread over his head as he sat in the king's throne. The Brewers' hold on first place at the All-Star Break was similarly tenuous. >More
 Mallards mania remains strong in Madison

After a disappointing first half, in which the Madison Mallards finished third in the Northwoods League South division, the team has shown early signs during the second half of regaining the form that carried it to last year's league championship. >More
 Do Jabari Parker and Jason Kidd offer hope for the hapless Milwaukee Bucks?

It's not necessarily a good sign that the Milwaukee Bucks have been a far more engrossing franchise in the past few weeks than they were during the previous regular season. >More
 Vote for Jonathan Lucroy to go to the 2014 All-Star Game!

It's beginning to look like all my recent apprehension about the Milwaukee Brewers was just stuff to fill column space. They began the week with the best record in the National League, and although they still have half the season left to spit the bit (pause here to summon your own worst memory from 45 mostly futile years), the Brewers are now an odds-on favorite to make the playoffs. >More

 Golf, the sport for the 1%

The U.S. Open golf tournament begins this morning in North Carolina, and Tiger Woods " the One, the greatest of his generation, the alpha and omega " remains sidelined while recovering from back surgery. He also missed the Masters, the first major tournament of the year, prompting The Atlantic to ponder golf's future sans Tiger and pronounce it "bleak." >More
 The 2014 NBA Finals, finally

It might seem hard to believe, given that the Wisconsin Badgers played themselves into and out of the NCAA Final Four a full two months ago, but basketball season has pressed on. And on. And on. >More
 Where to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Madison

For fans of international soccer who live in the United States, watching broadcasts of the World Cup is usually not a simple proposition. Set aside the quadrennial discussion over whether the sport is set to break out in this country -- it's that the last four editions have been held on the other side of the world that has made dedicated fandom a serious commitment. The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, though, is making supporting your side much easier. >More
 Can the Madison Mallards win again in 2014?

With spring semesters ending at universities across the country, a mostly new crop of Madison Mallards have filtered into town to begin their summer internships " defending the team's 2013 championship from the rest of the Northwoods League at the Duck Pond in Warner Park. >More
