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?

The Brewers - currently the best team in baseball - are finding all sorts of new haters. Whether they're ripping on Carlos Gomez' swagger or presuming that Ryan Braun most obviously still juicing, the Crew is facing all sorts of new heat. And that's awesome.

Whether you support the e-cigarette industry or not, one thing is indisputable: it's a phenomenon that's growing rapidly. And while the companies that produce cigarette alternatives are based all over the world, one exists right in Milwaukee's own backyard. Hartland's Johnson Creek Enterprises, which makes Johnson Creek Smoke Juice, has quietly grown to an $8 million business and is expanding rapidly.

It's hard to believe that the classic baseball comedy, "Major League," is 25 years old. Filmed largely in Milwaukee, everyone here of a "certain age" seems to have a story to tell about the making of the movie.

I wanted to see the hubbub first-hand, so I joined the throngs of crowds checking out the brand new Mayfair Collection today. The parking lot was packed, but the two stores I visited weren't too chaotic. And once things settle down a bit, I'm sure I'll be back.

Opening Day has always been a special day for me. It was 16 years ago, on April 7, 1998 that I celebrated my first day of self employment (and the birth of OnMilwaukee.com) at County Stadium. I haven't missed many since then.

In an industry where positioning a brand as retro vintage is suddenly new and trendy, Milwaukee's Lucky Tiger doesn't even need to even try. Trademarked in Kansas City in 1935, the iconic men's brand actually stretches back to a barber shop from the 1920s, when it was a very large line of tonics and hair products.

And just like that, the trip is over. The one that I spend 360 days a year daydreaming about. The one that almost didn't happen. On one hand, it feels like we just got here. On the other hand, when I look at myself in the mirror right now, it feels like I've been here for a month.

When I last left off, it was Saturday night in the desert and we were starving. After a little pool time at the Camelback Inn, we headed to Old Town Scottsdale to see what awaited us.
