No Crying In Baseball

I have been fielding a lot of hate lately. Guess that’s par for the course. Some people criticizing me for not being a fan of the Brewers/baseball for years and years – since I was a little girl.  Well, I guess I’ll address that & also tell you how I feel now – crazy as it may be.  Some people are hateful and judgmental, but I’m an open book anyway. I hate the hate, but when I share my feelings, I guess I invite it. Oh well…so be it…here goes.

My Mom and Dad got divorced when I was two years old….

One of my faves :)

Brauny "flying around the bases. 9/25/08Ok I have to preface this with a smidge of an explanation.  I wrote this back in 2008.  I had a 20 game season seat package back then & I had purchased this single seat about a month before because I wanted to sit in the front row .   I did not own Seat 5, Row 1, Section 117  then.  I did not dream I would EVER own this seat back then.  But there I sat.  And part of the reason I decided to purchase the seat I…

Congratulations T-Rats!

Congratulations Timber Rattlers!  You were already my Champions and now the label is OFFICIAL!  You did it!!  I knew you would .   It is bittersweet though, isn’t it?  I’m sure you feel a bit more than a little twinge of sadness that this special season is now over, while at the same time feeling immeasurable elation that you won it all.  I’m right there with you.  Chris Mehring’s call of that last pitch brought happy and sad tears all at once on my drive home from Miller Park.  I, through you, had won a trophy and lost a Kwan-filled team all…

To My T-Rats

Me-TRats-300x187To My T-Rats:

Tonight it begins. The MWL Championship Series!  Oh heck, let’s just call it the World Series shall we? The fact that it’s Single-A ball doesn’t make it any less important, any less exciting, any less meaningful than a World Series would be to Major Leaguers and to their fans. For you, the players, and for me, the wildly enthusiastic and supportive fan, this IS the World Series.

I am so proud of you guys!  You know, it’s very easy and common in Single-A ball for players to focus on their own statistical accomplishments. To want to do the best they can,…

Adam Greenberg

adam_greenberg_autograph2So as some of you know, I’ve adopted a cause. Adam Greenberg. He’s a cub, yes. But that shouldn’t matter. Take off your Brewers hats and put on your baseball caps.  He’s a baseball player!!  Adam Greenberg was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat with the Chicago Cubs. All these guys dream about their whole lives is to get to the Bigs. Here’s this guy who finally gets his chance and BAM! It’s over.  Probably the worst thing that could happen…happened.  He was hit by a pitch in the HEAD in his…
