No words can more accurately describe how I felt after last night's Brewers game than this 8 second video. This team makes me want to drink, drink fast, and drink lots. On a sidenote this has to be the greatest video in the history of youtube. Nothing overtly long, just 8 seconds of awesomeness that leaves you both amused and impressed. Like this guy's friend's reaction is the best. If you ever wanted to know what genuine admiration looks like THAT was it. That guy reacts at the end of that video the way I react when I say complete sentences to women. And don't think for a second that these guys didn't get both of the girls commenting on this video. Just a total trump card, you can have all the pick up lines you want, I'll take this guy as my wingman every day of the week.
In any case I was going to post this on my blog yesterday after I got done blah blah blahing about soccer:
"In a related/totally unrelated story as predicted here on Strange Brew, the Brewers have their comeback in full effect. Ho-Hum. No big deal. Just on the cutting edge of team turnarounds. Next up the Astros and I legitimately believe the Brewers can win 7 games in this series. I mean Carlos Lee is there prime offensive weapon and I thought he retired after he played for us in 1997."
But I decided to wait on it, because in the back of my head a little voice said "just wait until after the series is over to talk trash about the homestand....also stomach says to lay off the beef jerky and dippin dots for dinner." Stupid voice. Always bossin me. So thankfully I held off in my posturing as I watched the Brewers give away a FOUR RUN LEAD to the worst team in baseball at home! Now don't get me wrong, they could still have a 'good' 6-3 or 7-2 homestand, but at this point of the year when you're still 8 games under .500 'good' is not going to cut it anymore. They need great homestands of 8-1 or 9-0. Not to mention they are making it hard to justify writing a blog about them once or twice a week when they keep hovering around mediocrity and lose games to turrible teams. I'm like a defense attorney trying to get a guy off after his 9th OWI. Bonus word: frustrated.
PS; Is this Ghana's fault somehow? It's got to be right? I joked about that guy from yesterday being Papa Shango but now I'm starting to wonder if that's true and he has cursed not only me but my favorite team? Where's the Ultimate Warrior when you need him!
