Good to get the win last night. It’s also good to be back home and enjoy some of my favorite things in Milwaukee. I spent two years working for the Brewers and made some great friendships here. Although I’m only here a few days, I’m eating more meals than I should… just to see everyone and hit all the great food spots (which Milwaukee has many of). If you ever want any suggestions about Milwaukee, just ask. I’d be happy to offer my suggestions. The Reds visit Milwaukee twice more this year, so maybe I’ll post some spots to hit while in the Cream City later this year. It’s not a bad drive, about six and a half hours. I’d recommend it for a road trip this summer, there’s really more to do here than you think. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures from Miller Park.
Here are the Reds stretching before last night’s game. I know it looks like they are spelling out O-H-I-O, but trust me, they are just stretching.
While in Milwaukee, I am lucky enough to do “stats” for FS Ohio. That’s my seat on the left. Next to me is Thom Brennaman and Chris Welsh. When doing stats, I am responsible for providing the broadcast team with any useful information about the game, statistics, pitch counts and while in Milwaukee, sausage race standings. You can thank me for last night’s spring training grand slam stat (the Reds led all spring training clubs with 5 grand slams).
Seen here on the far right is the seat of Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Bob Uecker. He was sitting there earlier, but he had to “Get up, get up, get outta here, gone!”
