We Survived Opening Day!!!

In typical Wisconsin fashion, the weather made it known that just because you have a few days of temps in the 70’s, and the snow is all gone, and the robins and geese are flying around everywhere, doesn’t mean that Old Man Winter isn’t going to try to waffle-stomp on your parade!  Yes, it snowed, yes it was windy, and yes, we had to break out our cold weather gear, but it was well worth it!

Some people question why we leave at 7:45AM to go “wait in line” in the parking lot- well, that’s where the party begins!  You turn off your trucks, grab some beers, and run up and down the line of vehicles “pre-drinking” before you actually get into the lot.  We time it right so we get the front row every year.  The big open area that you see us in our group pic is the handicap overflow, which never fills up totally so there’s room for fun and games (and group pics) at least for a few hours.

A huge shout-out to Rudi, the giant face in the crowd that couldn’t make it out to the park due to being diagnosed days before with cancer.  Alex took pretty damn good care of you Rudy, and I think you did more shots on the bullpen shotski than most of the folks here!

Please take a minute to read about Rudi’s ongoing battle on his GoFundMe page and give a few bucks to a firefighter who really could use a break.  #FuckCancer

One thing that was pretty damn cool this year, we had Scott “Handy Jay” Mack, Josh, Wild Bill, Pauly and myself out together again for the first time since who knows when.  Thanks to Josh for all he did to make Opening Day special- from bring the giant Jenga, grills, jugs of apple pie liquor and a tent to actually cooking all the food.  Really appreciate that level of Superfan dedication.

And on that note, the Brewers are 3-3 at the end of our “rebuilding” year’s first week.  We took 2 from Houston, and one from those pesky Giants.  Let’s see how we do this next week against the Cards and the Pirates on their roadtrip!

Author: Superfan Pete

I am a life-long superfan of the Milwaukee Brewers, but don't hold that against me! I love baseball, every team, every crack of the bat, every close play, and especially the rivalries. I am 30 years old living in Brown Deer, WI (about 10 minutes north of Milwaukee). Currently I work in retail but hopefully soon I will be working for MLB, preferably in the MLB Fan Cave in New York City. My purpose in starting this blog is to highlight the Milwaukee Superfans as well as their antics, ramblings, and achievements. If I've missed anything, please feel free to send me a email and ask away! Go Brewers!
