I Drink Your Honey Weiss!

One year ago, I was in Milwaukee where all was benign and friendly, a Mets fan on holiday casually taking in the Brewers and Pirates, more engaged by the bratwursts than the baseball. I even sampled the local beverage scene as a professional courtesy to the good folks of Wisconsin.

It’s a whole different Labor Day Weekend now, the Brewers much improved, the Mets in a divisional battle, our reward, should we prevail, likely another series at Miller Park, next time with C.C. Sabathia staring us in the face.

I’d say the next three days in Milwaukee will be pretty frothy. Wouldn’t you?

    I'm just looking forward to the Sausage Race, as always. Besides that, the Brewers can go to the devil. I hate them. Fear breeds contempt.

    I dig Milwaukee. It has everything you'd want in a city, but an inescapable small-town feel. Per a business associate from there, “I can decide at 5:00 to go to the ballet (?) or ballpark and be there at 5:30. There's never any traffic; everything is half an hour away.”
    Brewer fans are friendly and dedicated, and their team is named after people who do one of the most important jobs in the world. And between the frozen custard (don't call it ice cream, it's way better!), Leinie's, cheeses, and various brats and cured meats, it's an epicurean's delight.
    All that said, let's kick some ass!

    Jeez! Is there any team (other than the Mets) that you don't hate. You've recently posted your hatred for the Yankees (absolutely understandable), the Phillies, the Cubs, and now the Brewers. Why the Brewers? What the hell have they done since 1982 that that you would hate them so much? Because they try to beat our team. Lighten up!
