Brewers Going to the Playoffs

Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

I've got the gamecast on now - how did Hardy not find a way home from third with no out? I'm not complaining, but still...


Counsell nailed one right to an infielder. One out. Kendall hit into a force at the place. Two out. Next batter hit into another infield out.

I have never seen a team as absolutely unable to get a run home from third with nobody out as the Brewers of the past few seasons, and I hope I never do again. A blind squirrel with a matchstick would have more chance of knocking in that run.

Next time you want to give away $100, please let me know first. I could use the cash (new baby).

Man that was hard to watch. I knew I should have just stuck to being a Padres fan. At least I knew they had no shot this season, and thus I took comfort in the fact that they didn't play above their potential and give me false hope.

Most of my teams/stars are in the shitter lately:

Brewers: Blowing it
Padres: Wow they're bad
ManU: Couldn't find the goal with GPS and a guide.
Kimi: Forgot how to drive in the rain?
Tiger: Out.
Liddel: Goes down easier than a crack whore.
Badger football: Just waiting to break my heart.
Packers: 2 and 0, get them Cowboys.
Badger Hockey: Not holding my breath, but they should be pretty good.


LA Kings: No comment.

Oh sure, you go out on the right night, in the right part of town, you can get great discounts on pretty much anything.

I bought a 50 inch Samsung plasma for $25 - the dude really needed a jumbo (rock that is).

I'm sensing that this is about to turn into the Big Lebowski one-liner thread. I better rein myself in.

That would be better than talking about the abomination that is the 2008 Brewers pennant drive.

The 100 bucks was a joke. After a weekend insulated from the Brewers in Toronto (saw the scores that's it) I return on Sunday to see that they won and today the Mets lose so its one game back with six to go. Pretty excited, and to top it off, I won the lottery for Brewer NLDS tickets. I hope they at least take 2 from the Pirates and then sweep the Cubs.

Btw, after what I saw in Toronto (Burnett heading for free agency and Marcum on the DL for all of 2009), I don't think they'll go for Prince until they lock up some more SPs.

I may actually go to a playoff baseball game for the first time in 4 years. Very psyched!
