Brewers... Sigh

I would love to see what the increase in text messages throughout the state of Wisconsin today after Brett Favre finally did the unthinkable and signed Brett Favre on Tuesday. Most of those texts were probably extremely anti-Favre, although I'm sure there are still a few Favre homers out there, but why that is I will never know. The point is that if you weren't 100% percent committed to the football season after the Packers first preseason game on Saturday, the anticipation of the first Packers/Vikings surely did the trick.

But, even though we are 100% ready for some football, the Brewers still feel the need to keep playing for some reason. With a 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh Tuesday night, the Brewers are now 9.5 games back of the Cardinals in the NL Central, with their playoff hopes nearly non-existent. Their record is now 58-61, which is unfortunate considering the amount of anticipation we had for this season. Oh well, at least they might actually get something for Bill Hall.

So as the excitement for the NFL Season begins, we'll continue to keep our eye on Milwaukee, but forgive us if we're a little preoccupied with the Packers for the time being.

PS. Favre is a douche.

Player of the Game: Prince Fielder.

Kentucky woman, she shines with her own kind of light.

I agree. Training camp is over so it’s time for him to play in some games. I’d be PISSED if I am Rosenfels or Jackson.

I hope Favre steps it up this season and does well for his team.
