Oh My God, The Brewers Will Be on Sunday Night Baseball. Twice.

I've gotten used to seeing the Brewers play in the national spotlight of either an ESPN, TBS, or FOX nationally televised game. But I can't remember the last time I watched the Brewers play on Sunday Night Baseball. I'm not even sure it's ever happened before, quite honestly.

Even though the Brewers probably won't be expected to have the type of season they did last year, they are being rewarded for the 2008 season with five nationally televised games this season, and possibly more.

This includes two appearances on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. Now, a lot of people hate this program because of how bad the announcers are, but I don't care. Watching the Brewers on ESPN on a Sunday night is something I've been dying to do for years (I don't set very lofty goals, as you can see). First, they'll end their first home series with a game against the Cubs on April 12th. Then, on May 24th, their game at the Metrodome against the Minnesota Twins will be showcased.

The Brewers will also get the FOX billing three times this season for their Saturday games. The first will be a June 13th matchup hosting the Chicago White Sox, the second will be a June 20th game in Detroit, while the third will take place on September 5th when they host the Giants.

Also, they could also pick up some games on the TBS schedule, which hasn't been announced yet. And ESPN will likely have the Brewers on for a couple of mid-week games as well. So even if you're not close enough to Milwaukee to catch the FSN Wisconsin broadcasts, there will still be plenty of chances to watch Brewers baseball this season.

Call me crazy but I think the last time we played on Sunday Night baseball was against Hideo Nomo and his first start many years ago. For some reason I think I remember this.

The last Sunday night game I believe was against Hidecki Irabu and the Yankees at County Stadium. It was the first start for the much-hyped Irabu and I remember the Crew took it to him and won the game.
