yep. that's why i go into every Brewer season with that same attitude. until baseball comes up with some kind of salary cap, i'll never get too wrapped up in a baseball season. it's fun to watch though and i love cheering on the BrewCrew!

I can't wait to host the Brewers at Target Field in May. I like Brewers fans much more than Packers fans.

Half of my clients are in Wisconsin, so it's fun to take some of them to a Twins game for some friendly rivalry (and lots of drinking).

I root for the Mariners as a current Seattlite, but will always also root for the Brewers as a native Wisconsonian.

Sausage races, Bernie Brewer, Roll Out the Barrel .... what's not to love?

I will forever remember Rollie Fingers because of the Brewers.

Great name. Greater moustache.

I'm sure that the Crew is more than grateful to not have to play in the Metrodome anymore! I remember my uncle's best friend (former Brewer catcher) mentioning how the ceilng, turf, overall dynamic of being indoors, etc. would always cause problems for everyone -- especially the outfielders. Of course, the Brewers then proceeded to get run over like a truck when they came to Minneapolis last year.

Can't wait for the season to start, just so we don't have to listen to Brandon anymore. He'll be too busy sitting on the bench.
