Going to Milwaukee....

Posted at 10:30 AM on May 19, 2006 by David Zingler (3 Comments)

Tomorrow my brother, Brian, and I will make a road trip to Milwaukee to see our hapless Twins attempt to upend what looks like a superior Brewers team. Since I likely will not run into anyone I know in Beer Town, I will be there in full rube fan mode – Corky Miller game worn jersey and all.

Visiting Miller Park always gives me a chance to get back at the Cheese Heads, who no matter what the team’s records are or what the scoreboard says, always sarcastically throw “How many rings do the Vikings have?” in my face during Vikings/Packers games. As much as it burns me, there’s not much I can say back.

Now it’s time for a little revenge: Hey Wisconsin, How many rings do the Brewers have?

That makes all the hours in the car worthwhile.

The worst part about going to Miller Park is seeing all of the Packer jerseys. These so-called baseball fans are more worried about Aaron Rodgers completion percentage during mini camp then they are about the Brew Crew. Sorry Packer fans.....but the Brewers will actually be contending for the playoffs this year. Then again the Brewers don't have a washed up arrogant leader that is holding the franchise back.

Just because you don’t have as loyal fans Minnesota……don’t take it out on us. If you are a true Packer fan YOU MUST represent the green and gold everywhere you go. It doesn’t matter if your shirt or jersey is faded, stained, or outdated………. it still represents the only team that is owned by the FANS. There is never an off season in Cheese Head Land. Yes, the Brew Crew is good, but they will never come close to the Pack. Brett Farve will play longer than Y.A. Title, and A.J. Hawk will make you forget about that linebacker from Chicago. Enjoy Milwaukee………..but never come to Green Bay. GO PACK GO!!
