Brewers Beards

October 16th, 2011 · 5 Comments

Neither by brother nor my dad have shaved since the Brewers got into the playoffs. I’m not sure why. Some kind of good luck charm? Yesterday they both sent me photos of their beard progress. Looks like my brother is winning in bushiness, but my dad is winning in whiteness! My dad gets bonus points for sending a photo of himself wearing a Brewers shirt, although the Badgers were playing yesterday and maybe that’s why my brother is wearing red. As a side note, yesterday the Badgers killed the Hoosiers, 59-7, and remain unbeaten.

On September 23, the Brewers clinched their first division title in 29 years. Then they won the National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. My brother and my dad went to the first game of that series. You can see in the photo below, they had just started to not shave.

Currently the Brewers are battling the St. Louis Cardinals for the National League Championship. The standings are 3-2 with Game 6 at Miller Park today. I do not normally cheer for the Brewers, but since the Cubs are way out of it, maybe I’ll cheer for the Brewers as a second team. The Packers play the St. Louis Rams today at Lambeau. I hope WI can win over both of the St. Louis teams! Add in the Badgers, what a great time to be a Wisconsin sports fan!

    I don’t are about sports but based on Mich’s STL love I’m gonna have to cheer against this particular brew crew.

      haha. I can relate to that. I’m very happy Dallas didn’t watch the Cowboys game (loss) at home today. I’m sure I missed a lot of yelling and cursing.

      Packers beat the Rams, Detroit lost to the 49ers. So the Packers are alone undefeated in the league. Woot! Badgers are undefeated as well.

      Let’s see what the Brewers do tonight. They just got 2 more runs to make the score 4-5. Exciting game.

    I was at the game tonight, a diappointing loss. I will be shaving in the morning…

      Yeh, that stinks. I was watching the game. This is the farthest they went in a long time, though! Amanda texted me in the first inning and said “Brewers Lost” then texted me again and said she meant to send it to you. That seems like some bad mojo!

      We’ve still got the Packers!
