Racing In Wisconsin, A Family Tradition

Posted in Bill's Blog
They work regular jobs, 40, 50, 60 hours a week.  Their friends and family all come out like it’s a religious pilgrimage.  Some work, some just watch and cheer on those who participate.  They pour their hearts, blood, sweat and souls into their “hobby”. For what?  $50, $100, $1000….a free entrance into next week’s race? I was at Slinger Speedway over the weekend and it always amazes me at the pride and spirit of competition all of the race teams garner.  Joe from Joe Cool racing was so
proud of his son Ryan for winning the championship last year, “I brought a tear to the old man’s eye”, he told me.… Read the rest

Tuesday’s Are Lucroysdays

Posted in Bill's Blog
For those that thought I was crazy for telling Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy that he gets good mojo when we talk to him on Tuesdays, here’s the proof: ON TUESDAYS, Lucroy is:
Batting .431 (22 – 51)
9 runs scored
10 RBI
4 Doubles
4 Homeruns  (2 multi homer games)
10 walks
And only 6 strikeouts. The ONE TIME we didn’t talk to Lucroy on Tuesday, he went 0-3 with 2 strikeouts! Nuff said! Does this make the Brewers “X Factor” in the 2nd half of the season…. THE BILL MICHAELS SHOW? I know, I know…go ahead and rip me Wickett!… Read the rest

This Is Getting Old

Posted in Bill's Blog
Packers President Mark Murphy said that they have extended the olive branch and would love to retire Brett Favre’s #4.  One issue; Brett, or people around him, feel that it’s too soon and there might be a louder chorus of boos than the old Gunslinger would like. Favre, goes on the radio and say’s that not true. Do you really think that Mark Murphy would just pull that reason out of the air and express it to the public?  Is it such a wild story that once invented it’s got to be true?  Is Murphy that diabolical?  Come on, what do you think happened here?… Read the rest

HR Derby, YAWN

Posted in Bill's Blog
I’m on vacation.  Relaxing and refreshing before….dare I say it….Packers training camp begins.  So I’m sitting down, watching baseball’s Home Run Derby.  You know, the ESPN hype driven event that has seemed to screw up more hitters swings than a Clayton Kershaw slider. So I’m sitting here watching and I find myself shaking my head over and over again.  Between Chris Berman’s overused cliché’s and constant references to towns in Minnesota and his mic being left open, on more than one occasion, where he just sounds like a crotchety old man to the disappointing lack of true home run hitters. I wasn’t entertained, I was embarrassed for Major League Baseball.… Read the rest
