Miscellaneous notes on an off day

Gotta hand it to Brewers fans for "original" idea:

Given that they play in Miller Park and the beer is pretty free-flowing there, this concept doesn't seem too far-fetched. I have a feeling that a lot of Brewers fans aren't going to wait for their team to make the playoffs, they'll just go ahead and, well, show their support right now. I'm already feeling sorry for the Miller Park janitorial staff. "Break out the brooms"? Heck, break out the mops, it's gonna get messy. I wonder what the park will look like with hundreds of those little yellow "Caution: Slippery when wet" signs all over their concourses? This ought to give rise to a new joke in Milwaukee:

Brewers fan #1: "Hey dude, are you gonna pee your pants when the Brew Crew makes the playoffs?"

Brewers fan #2: "Depends."

(Maybe they can get Depend-manufacturer Kimberly-Clark to sponsor this endeavor and get Lisa Nowak as a spokesperson)

Matt Chico will probably never live down that wild pitch he threw into the stands against Florida back on April 21st, but I hope that he can put that behind him. It doesn't help that there are folks like Len Berman around, though, to remind us of such ignominy. This morning on NBC's Today show, Len Berman made one of his occasional appearances to do his "Spanning the world" segment where he takes a look at the lighter side of sports and he practically led off with Chico's wild pitch, and to add insult to injury, he had edited in the classic comedy clip of Bob Uecker's character, announcer Harry Doyle from the film "Major League", calling, "JUuuuuust, a bit outside!" Gee, thanks Len, thanks a lot. *Grumbles...*

I neglected to note that the winners of the last two Nats/Brewers Sausage races were Italian Sausage and Bratw├╝rst, in that order. Collect your bets, folks.

Don't forget that Friday night's game vs. the Marlins is Miller cooler night for the first 25,000 adults. As of this moment the weather might be a bit dodgy, but it should be warm. As always, I hope for the best. See you there!
