In honor of my return to Wisconsin my mom got some SWANK~! tickets to the Brewers game versus the Astros today. Section 119 behind home plate, 8 rows up. So my parents, sister, and I attended the Dave Bush’s four hit shutout win 4-0 today. While we were shopping in the FanZone today, however, the Packer/Bear game got underway and things are not looking pretty.
I played the numbers today and picked the Italian Sausage in the Race. I was a bit dismayed when I found out it was a relay race and I’d be counting on a midget italian to finish it for my dough, but my fears were not realized as the Tiny Italian was the only sausage NOT to bungle the handoff and I got an easy $15 from my family. I was happy to get that so when the Attendance came up I blithely shouted out “THREE! THREE!” To my delight, it was THREE! and I won another $15. Oh happy day. And I finally got the shirt I’d been lusting after for years along with two new hats. I had to pick lightly coz I wasn’t sure what Spacebee had bought me last weekend.
Last night I went out in Racine with a cast of thousands anchored around my brother and sister. We were celebrating my brother’s fiance’s birthday and it turned out it was Luau Night at All-Sports Pub. Holy crap, $60 goes a loooooooooong way in Wisconsin bars. I’d forgotten how long. The answer is: looooooooooooong.
I’ll be kickin’ it in Racine for a few more days before the grand reveal of Spacebee to my family on Wednesday, then I’m heading up to Madison until the next Friday (though most of next week I’ll be participating in recruiting activities at the university).
HOLLLARIT whazzmaster, and go Packers.
