2017 Brewers Opening Day

Every April, there’s one day that I look forward to- a day of new beginnings, a day of food, friends and perhaps the best thing- Baseball.  This year that day fell on Monday, April 3rd.  This day marked the beginning of the Brewers 2017 regular season.

For me, I hold this day sacred.  On this day, I use a vacation day from my job.  I wake up at 5am.  I know I’ll be eating and drinking grilled food and Coronas, and I know it may be cold, or possibly warm, maybe raining or even snowing.  I accept this 100%

The best part of this day however, is the people.  The friends- the fans- the players- the employees- all of these people are intricate parts in the building of cherished memories.

This is the group of people that arrived at 7:30am to participate in the festivities.  We have people from all walks of life, all ages, some traveled hours, some even flew in from other states- all for the singular purpose of coming together in celebration.

Thank you everyone for your commitment to this great day!  Especially Lori with getting everyone to sign up to bring food and supplies, and Josh and Val for not just keeping most of our supplies year round in their garage, but also for your beautiful creativity in coming up with new additions like Opening Day Bitch Bingo!

In the end, it all came together- people all showed up when they should’ve (Paul was even the first one there this year) and we all drove in and staked our claim.

Next year, we hope to see even more of our friends show up as they slowly come to the realization that the one constant throughout the years is baseball… and this day every year is when it begins.  Make it a priority to be there, and I can guarantee you some great memories you’ll treasure forever.  Go Brewers!

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!
