Count your fucking blessings and quit your whinning!!!
Before you attack me, please, PLEASE, PLEASE, FUCKING PLEASE! CONSIDER THIS: The Milwaukee Brewers haven’t been in the play-offs since 1982!
Jesus Fucking Khrist! I have 3 kids! The YOUNGEST turned 19 last June! None of my children have EVER seen their team in the Play-offs! Never! Never ever! Not once! Not really even fucking close!!!
To make it worse, every time we buy something here, we get the privilege of paying an added sales tax so those fucking rich jerks could have a quarter billion dollar stadium to lose their games in!
Add in the fact that we have to deal with the fucking asshole Selig family, and I think you’ll all agree, we here in Milwaukee have a LOT more to gripe about than anyone, in any other major league city does!
This is really more of a rant against the MIlwaukee Brewers than anyone on these boards. But recent threads helped inspire it!
Damn! I was all set to give you high fives…and then you went on and on about your team!
Personally, I’m not into sports, but I understand those who are. What I don’t understand is guys who act like they have ANYthing to do with a win. And, of course, totally second-guess the team when they lose…like THEY could do it.
We get the best of both worlds. The agony of being second-best, the crushing feeling of failure after fifty or so inept ownership moves in a row, etc. But you also get the improbable playoff run every once in a while. That keeps your hopes up, and also allows you to lord it over the fans of lame teams like, oh, say, the Brewers.
I can arrange to have a t-shirt sent to you, if you like.
Let’s see, Milwaukee may be one of the poster children for recent incompetence, but near as I can tell, Milwaukee has been to the World Series 3 times since the Cubs have. Since sports joy and bragging rights inevitably come down to championships, I’ll kindly ask you to pipe down.
And really, we all have to deal with the Selig family. I weep for the Brewer fans who have no hope of escaping their bungling ways, but at this point all of us bear a little of the burden of dealing with Bud.
The Brewers were in the W.S. once, 22 years ago in 1982, the last year they got into post season play. They had been in the playoffs in 1981, but only because a strike split the season.
When you say “Milwaukee” are you including the Braves? If so, they don’t count because there isn’t any Milwaukee Braves! That’s another bad thing that happened to us: Our ball team packed up and split!
When it comes to baseball, Milwaukee really gets the short end of the stick!
I wrote Milwaukee because I meant Milwaukee. As a city you have had 3 World Series appearances. The joys of those were all fully experienced by the city with no knowledge that a team might be leaving so you get credit for the appearances.
Heck, I could argue that the Brewers packed up and split based on how little they currently resemble a decent team.
