Last night, I was watching the Brewers game and FS Wisconsin's Brian Anderson asked viewers what position Prince Fielder would play if he was a football player. I'm not sure what spot won the poll, but fullback seemed to me like the best answer. Prince always struck me as having a William Henderson-esque physique.
This morning, I was talking to my colleague, Drew Olson, who does a little work with Brewers TV, and he told me that he'll fill in for Telly Hughes for Sunday's game. I told him it was low pressure, since most Wisconsin sports fans will be watching the Packers instead of a now meaningless Brewers game.
Then, I ran across an ad on Brewers.com for a new crop of team hats. When I saw the green and gold Brewers "crossover cleanup hat," I had a silly idea. We've all seen people wearing Packers jerseys to Brewers games (I hate that), but let's say your loyalty truly is divided some Sunday afternoon in the fall.
Why not wear this Packers' themed Brewers hat and a Packers jersey that reads Fielder #28 on it? At the very least, it would get some chuckles. At its best, it would blow some peoples' minds (like my first impression of that hat).
Funny idea? Maybe. Been tried before? I haven't seen it. Am I gonna do it? Nope.
But if you do, let me know how it works out.
You don't even have to give me credit for the idea.
This borders on the line of silly! this hat is like the guy who wears a favre jersey to a brewer game! why do it. I will give you points for being creative but if people start wearing that hat it will be a disgrace to the brewers! do we have to "packer" everything?

Yesterday, I walked around Packard Avenue in Cudahy for the first time in a long time. I mean, I drive through or around Cudahy all the time, but yesterday was different. I stopped to smell the roses. Every real Milwaukeeans should pay a visit to downtown Cudahy every now and then. It's like a window into our past, and it's still alive and kicking today.

We all had a good laugh when the word spilled that Scott Walker substituted "Molotov" for "Mazel Tov" in his Hanukkah letter to Frank Gimbel. But you know that Gov. Walker didn't write that letter, right? He didn't even sign it.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday were good fun, but Giving Tuesday is all about giving back to our community. It's a relatively new concept, but several Milwaukee nonprofits participate, including Discovery World, UPAF and Pathfinders. One local organization, Penfield Children's Center, is making Giving Tuesday work through crowdsourcing.

I'm going to beat the Milwaukee winter. I will not be cold again. I will laugh in the face of Snowmageddon. I will be toasty warm when the temperatures drop well below zero. Here's how.

Take it for what its worth, but Playboy Magazine has Blue's Egg as one of its 101 best breakfasts in America (don't worry, the link is reasonably safe for work). The restaurant at 317 N. 76th St. came in 21st place out of 23 Midwest selections, just behind Mickie's Dairy Bar in Madison.

Can you imagine how social media would've melted down exactly 101 years ago? Nov. 11, 2013 was the end of the "Big Blow," the "Freshwater Fury" or the "White Hurricane," a hurricane-force blizzard that killed more than 250 people and and destroyed 19 ships.

I really didn't have any hope left after 25 days. As we entered the fourth week without our sweet, kind, missing cat, Jabie, I was beginning to come to peace with the reality that I'd never see her again. Then, yesterday, less than four blocks from home, a woman called my wife and said she had cajoled a black cat into her basement. My wife bolted home from work and immediately recognized Jabie coming up the stairs. Just to be sure, she took her to the closest vet to scan her microchip. And it came back as a match from Elmbrook Humane Society.

Apple's new killer app, Apple Pay, may indeed someday change global commerce for good. That day isn't here yet, however. Three days after launch, my experiences with the NFC-based payment / tap to pay system show that Apple Pay is still very, very beta. At this point, you may find yourself using it barely at all.
