Tim, C.C., and Me

Spacebee, her sister, assorted friends, and I all went to Summerfest on Thursday.  I got her Tim McGraw tickets for her birthday back in February and she was ready to cash in.  All in al it was a good Summerfest trip– we stayed at the Hilton in downtown in Milwaukee and I got mistaken for Jason Aldean when we pulled up in front.  The concert itself was pretty fun (really drunk) and then we walked back to the Hilton from the Summerfest grounds afterwards.

Saturday morning we played disc golf out at Elver Park.  I’d like to do it again, so anytime anyone wants to toss some discs hit me up.  I also played golf on Tuesday at University Ridge with Scubby and down in Racine yesterday with my brother and JOEY~!  Yo wwhazz, my bro said he was going to have a poker tourney at his new house for his birthday this year– reserve August 23rd or 24th.

Finally: C.C. Sabathia.  I’m of mixed thoughts about it.  On one hand I hate to see them deal LaPorta; I would have rather them dealt Prince now and brought LaPorta up.  But I see why they did what they did– in a push for the division they’d rather have a known arm AND a known bat rather than take a chance on bringing up LaPorta in the heat of a pennant race.  However- I’m seriously concerned about next year at this point.  Sheets will be gone, CC will be gone, our top prospect is gone, Cameron is gone.  At a cookout the other day when someone broached the idea of dealing Prince I was shocked at first, but the idea makes a lot of sense.  He hasn’t really shown consistency, and his leadership seems (from afar) more like bullying.  If someone else wants a guy who hits 50 homers one season and 25 the next, and wants to deal us an arm for him I say go for it.  More and more in retrospect I like the Braun deal.

So, overall I’m concerned that they’ve mortgaged the future to make one final push in the division.  I suppose that’s pretty much the only way a small-town team can do it these days.  But if the Cubs keep surging and the Brewers fizzle out– *shrug* there may not be much to look forward to next season.  I’ll stay optimistic for now, though.  This is the first time the Brewers have won a mid-season pickup sweepstakes in… well, ever?

  7. Cal, there was a time back in 2006 when all of whazzland implored you to let madd take you under your wing instead of law school. Or at least I did:

    Cal, the skeezer has two computer screens. On one, you will play cards and on the other he will regale you with videos of exploding toilets. He also has a lap top, so you can work on your own special cal projects. Sometimes he will drink vast quantities of Captain Morgan’s and you will fan him with a towel, maybe even take control of a runaway tournament he registered for and passed out. Day will become night and night will become mid afternoon. You will dance in St. Paul and when it is all said and done, you will bend the very laws of mathematics that created the MADD SCIENTIST…you just might bump into Arlo. AND THEN YOU WILL BE READY… to become KING of your very own small world.

    So you went the law school route. Happy? Regrets?

  8. yo cal, from a legal standpoint… why shouldn’t i vote for ron paul? why shouldn’t i vote for paul wall?

  9. Yo cal, from a lunch standpoint, why shouldn’t I have a Caesar Salad? Why shouldn’t I have a Ceasar Salad?

  10. Fuck it. I’ll meet you in the middle. Little Caesar’s. Dude’s out front holding a sign: $5.
