Who Is This Guy? Why Does It Matter?
Phelps could have garnered even more heavy metal, but in last nights (Australian time) qualifying heats the Americans were disqualified during the men's 4x100m medley relay.
A Place to Talk Wisconsin Sports and anything else we feel like talking about. No we won't put the Cubs game on the TV
While scouring the world wide web last night looking for logo's for the teams in the final four I came across this gem:
This was the logo prior to the PC police running rampant on Marquette's campus. The logo that the head honcho has on the site is o.k. but it's the later logo that was used as a compromise to stave off those PC eedjits of that time. This is the logo that Marquette used in the early days when they were becoming a nationally recognized collegiate basketball power.
I say put it to a vote. Which logo would the patrons of this bar rather see on the side bar?
New School VS. Old School
The web site I found these on is here. One other thing, I found this oldie but goodie on the site as well:
Apparently, judging by this version, us Wisconsinites fish, hunt, ski and snowshoe. Close but where is the beer bottle?
NOTE: The old Warrior logo is kind of grainy so maybe one of you photoshop experts could spend an afternoon away from the bar and clean it up a bit.
That is about as far away from Arlington as you can get right and still be in MLB. Who am I talking about Shrek of course Mench is bitching about the platoon again Hat tip to Battlekow over at BCB
Flicking through the hundreds of cable stations available to a couch potato in this modern world I found a Major Indoor Soccer League game on the VS network.
Thesis: The Brewers are the class of the Central Division. Their starting rotation is the deepest, they have young stars at short, second and first, steady veterans on the bench, outfielders who will hit for power and average, quality behind the plate and two all-star closers in the bullpen. How can they lose? They'll win 95 games, beat the Phillies in the first round, the Dodgers in the final round and the Yankees in the Series. Retribution for 1958 will be ours and we will spit on your pin-striped graves. Lots o' people will get drunk.
Wow that is the longest title to anything since Pink Floyd titled a song "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict."Side two, track 6 of Ummagumma. Why do I picture the younger members of our merry band scratching their heads going what the hell does he mean by "Side Two" You used to flip the album over kids trust me on that one.
Superman vs. The Mad Scientist Pre World War 2
UCLA has the revenge thing going for them. Florida has the "better then three NBA teams" thing going for them. I watched three of Florida's losses late in the year, Vandy, LSU and Bruce Pearls Tennessee as well as their early season loss to Kansas (which is why my disastrous bracket had Kansas to win it all). The one common denominator in all three losses was Florida couldn't hit threes. Common wisdom holds that you build inside out, establishing your inside game and that opens up your threes. Not Billy Donovan. He starts outside and then gets his big men off. They flipped that script last week vs Oregon and have done so the last two games. That was Donovan's surprise to the world.
Ben Howland is a terrific coach and he learned from last years loss to Donovan, so any surprises won't work this year. Darren Collison is a much better point guard then Jordan Farmar was last year. Josh Shipp will make Corey Brewer an afterthought. Arron Afflalo needs to outscore Lee Humphrey by 20 for UCLA to have a chance. Florida will rotate to take Afflalo out of his game. If Afflalo panics and starts throwing up junk Florida will build a double digit lead that UCLA won't be able to overcome. Afflalo has to keep UCLA close the entire way, he may get help from Collison, which is why Collison is better then Farmar, he can score. None of that will matter. Horford and Noah will be the difference this year. UCLA has improved over last year at three positions. Unfortunately for UCLA they have the same two players down low. Mata and Mbah a Moute are the same players they were last year. Horford gets off and Noah plays well which leads Florida to a V. No surprise here, since I picked Florida to eliminate Bucky. I predict Florida-84 UCLA-78.
For the first time ever I took time out of my busy life to actually listen to one of My Cunts "Monologues". It's a terrible risk. I know going in that I shall never get that time back but worse I may lose brain cells that I possess so precious few of.
1. Brewers 91-71
One thing they do at Miller Park which I love is on both the Club level and in the hall way to the suites on the Field level, they have these large framed photos of old and current MLB parks. I am told we have Wendy Selig to thank for this.
Fear not if you are getting tired of these photo montages I am almost out of pictures ;)

Sometime this weekend please do a post with your picks for the NL Central and how many games the Crew will win this season.
I know it is only the WNIT but the Badger Woman have the honor of being the last Wisconsin Basketball team to be playing this season. They will play tomorrow at 2pm against Wyoming out in Laramie. Our Madison readers can actually watch this on something called My Madison TV. Must be a local access station in the Dane County area.
Are a bunch of...well, read for yourself.
On to the two "party suites" that are found on the club level down the right field line. Each is about the size of two normal suites I swear one of these suites includes the area that Jeffery Hammonds suite was lol. As you can see from the photos one of the suites is done up in a 57 Milwaukee Braves theme and the other celebrates the 1982 team. I believe these suites were created last year so this will be there second season. Once again I would love to see a game from one of these.

Now the Umpires digs which are actually pretty nice. Mike pointed out to me something that we both found very funny. Take a look at what is at the bottom of the sign that says Umpire room under the numbers......
Next on our tour of Miller Park is the Home Locker room and the players dining area.
