Happy “Rick Monday” Monday!

Rick_Monday_American_Flag

I decided to wait until today to blog due to it being the 40 year anniversary of one of the greatest plays in MLB history – so to speak.  40 years ago, in 1976, two protesters were attempting to burn an American flag in left field of Dodger stadium- Rick Monday wasn’t about to have any of that, so he ran out there, snagged up the flag drenched in lighter fluid, and escorted the stars and stripes to safety.  Rick, who had also served in the Marine Corps Reserve, understood what the flag stands for.  He still has the flag, and has been offered over $1,000,000 dollars for it but said he won’t part with it.

On to other news!  I was able to attend a game last Thursday with Superfan Handy Jay, and we stopped by the season ticket holder area and found our names on the Wall of Fame!IMG_5113

That’s a pretty nice way to say Thank You and I am impressIMG_5111ed with how the Brewers went about it.  We were able to pick up our limited edition Ryan Braun All-Star bobbleheads and our media guides (Don’t forget #PlesacBobble2017) and were blessed with some sweet seats right behind home plate.  While I don’t remember the score due to my selective memory, I do remember it being a great day for baseball.  Overall, the Brewers are still not the worst team in MLB, even if it looks like it from the bottom of the NL Central.  It’s going to be a tough week with the Cubs series and all of those (yuck!) Cubs fans, but I have a feeling the crew will come through it all with at least 1, maybe 2 wins.

Either way, I can’t wait to be back at Miller Park!  Oh, a few highlights from Thursday’s day game I forgot to mention:  The Chorizo biffed it around home plate (haha!) and a pleasant surprise that it was dollar hotdog day!  Which you all know means Handy Jay was deep-throatin those wieners one after another!  Until next time folks, Go Brew Crew!

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!
