Arctic Tailgate

A baseball pines for spring
Why would you sit for days in the cold waiting for opening day tickets when you could just buy a 9 pack and get it for free? These people say they are die hard Brewers fans, but they won't spend $130 to get a 9 pack of games? Reading some of these stories you hear excuses like "I'm married and have kids, so I can't commit to that many games". Really? But you can commit to 4 days sleeping in a parking lot?  These people are in it for the party and that's it.  Not that I'm opposed to partying... Just own up to it.

There always seems to be a lot of Packers gear as well, which is my favorite thing ever! You're such a huge Brewers fan, yet you can't buy a $5.00 T-shirt, hat, sweater ANYTHING from a discount bin?  I recently saw a Weeks shirt for 2$... Actually, that's still too much.

With all the money you spent on junk food, wood/charcoal, clothing, Summers Eve douches etc., you could have called Ticket King and bought an opening day ticket for the same amount without getting frostbite. My friends and I have started a new tradition. We go to one persons house, crack a beer at 8am and order tickets online as they go on sale at the same fucking time.

Don't boo Braun, you bozos

I've heard a lot people say how they will be booing Braun opening day.  I'm hoping these are just idiots going for the party aspect and not real fans.  Is this really the kind of baseball town we are or have become?  I know everyone is sour (which I put myself in that camp), but what exactly do you plan on achieving by booing a player on a team that you supposedly support?  Braun's already going to take one in the ribs, if not higher, probably the first pitch. Baseball tends to regulate itself.

I really, really, dislike Dick Reeks, but I have never once booed him. (At home throwing shit at my TV doesn't count)  Do you want to win games or act like a giant douche? These same people will be the first ones to leap out of their seats when Braun crushes a HR.

I understand the hatred for Braun, but it's time to win some games!

I'm excited for this season, how about you?
