Well, it finally happened, though it remains to be seen if the season can yet be salvaged. The Brewers are 3-11 so far this month, and the Cubs are still fucking throwing no-hitters and I’m about to punch a hole in the wall. Just kidding– after last year I’m trying to remain cool and calm in the face of an epic collapse. As much as last year sucked, and as much as it would (originally typed ‘will’ right there) suck to not make the playoffs this year I council Milwaukee Brewer Fans to hold out hope.
Because NEXT year is gonna fucking suck donkey nuts when we lose CC and Sheets, and Rickie Weeks will STILL strike out all the time, and we’ll STILL be saddled with a very expensive Bill ‘I-hit-30-homers-one-time,-remember?’ Hall. It’s gonna be terrific– I can’t wait.
Now, perhaps the Brewers can still make something out of this year. Anything goes once you make the playoffs, and the Brewers have the pure talent to make a run once they get into the postseason. The big BUT, however, is that they gotta get there first. After holding their dicks while the rest of the league caught them in the wild card race, now it will (AGAIN!) come down to the final series. Six of the last 12 games are against the Cubs– blech. I sure hope that someone, somewhere, is destroying the Brewers locker room right now in a rage to try to convince them THAT THIS REALLY MATTERS. Alas, I doubt it.
So, how ’bout them Packers?
