Tempers flare at Miller Park as Brewers top Marlins
The benches cleared after an odd two-batter sequence when Milwaukee Brewers starter Mike Fiers hit Miami Marlins MVP-candidate Giancarlo Stanton in the face and pinch hitter Reed Johnson on back-to-back pitches -- which resulted in an inning-ending strikeout. Carlos Gomez was later hit, and the Brewers won two in a row for the first time since the end of August.

Autographs provide a trip down memory lane
I was (OK, still am) a sports nut. I love the games. I have an appreciation for the players and respect what they do. But when I was a kid, the athletes (and some coaches) were superheroes. I only saw them on TV, or maybe a couple times a year at a ballpark. One way for a younger me to connect was to write letters and ask for autographs. I came across those old mementos recently, and it was a flashback to a simpler time.

Shift switch: Golf course superintendent
A golf course is a living thing, with insects, grasses and trees all affecting how it plays on a given day. All of those things, and a host of others, must be managed daily by that course's superintendent to make it playable for the golfer. It's a long day, with a lot of duties. I traded places with Brown Deer Golf Course superintendent Tim Wegner to get a better feel for what exactly he does, and I found out how hard it really is.
