My niece Stephanie graduated from Oak Creek High School on June 14th. Can you believe it? Me either! The day before graduation she got her first job and in the fall she starts college! Craziness!!
Steph’s class was about 480 students and the ceremony was held at Miller Park. I can’t even remember the last time I was at a graduation ceremony. Maybe when my brother graduated about 17 years ago? I don’t even know. It was interesting to see, even if it was loooong! And I wasn’t thinking, but the roof of Miller Park was open, which meant sunburns for everyone!
After the ceremony we met up with Steph outside the stadium for family photos. There were a ton of people, friends and family, and a very festive atmosphere. And even the racing sausages were there!
After photos, we went downtown to Joey Buona’s for a huge Italian feast.
Congratulations to Stephanie and the entire class of 2014!!

Yesterday my brother came down for a visit and went to his first Brewers away game at Wrigley Field. We started out at Sports Corner and got a table on the rooftop. The weather was really perfect and the views of Wrigleyville were awesome. The actual game was pretty boring. No runs until the 9th inning when the Brewers made 5 runs at the top and the Cubs scored noting in the bottom. So, my brother was spared having to suffer through the “Go, Cubs, Go!” song.

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!
