We May Not Like It But MLB Got It Right

Posted in Bill's Blog

Major League Baseball has spoken and some Brewers fans aren’t happy about it.  For throwing a punch and landing it squarely in the eye of your opponent, that will be a 5-game suspension for Martin Maldonado.  For shoving away an umpire and going after the guy that mouthed some “F-Bombs” to you, a 3-game suspension for Carlos Gomez. 

Players coming off of the bench, a respective 2 and 1 game suspension for the Pirates Snider and Martin.

What galls Milwaukee supporters is that the guy who mouthed off and started it all, not only did he cower on the mound while his teammates did the physical dirty work, he doesn’t even receive a suspension.… Read the rest

Do This Year’s Brewers Compare to 82′

Posted in Bill's Blog

Recently a Brewers fan stated that teams with characters, and a close club house, win games in the “Big Leagues”.  He was referring to Harvey’s Wallbangers of course.  

There was Robin Yount “The Kid”, “The Ignitor” Paul Molitor, “Gumby” Jimmy Gantner, “Stormin” Gorman Thomas, Rollie Fingers and his handlebar moustache, “Benji” Ben Ogilve, “Augie” Jerry Augustine…..there was Vuckvoich and Caldwell, Moose Haas and Don Sutton…..ya know, characters.

Can’t you say the same about this year’s version of the Milwaukee Brewers?

There’s Braun returning from a PED suspension and “Go Go” Carlos Gomez along with Luuuuuuuucroy behind the plate, Yo, Garza and Lohse on the hill with a guy named Scooter at second along with K-Rod closing things out…hell, there’s even a Wang in the pen. … Read the rest

Gomez Lost His Mind And Cole’s A Coward

Posted in Bill's Blog

We love Carlos Gomez’s zest for the game.  We enjoy his intensity and his amazing “all out style”.  That same zest and style can also be maddening to watch.  No matter what player it is, whenever you throw punches in a Major League Baseball game, unless it’s in retaliation to someone throwing a punch at you, it’s wrong.  You simply can’t do it.  In a close game, the Brewers center fielder cost his team a bench player in addition to the loss of Gomez’s own abilities that were no longer present on the field.

While I think that a skirmish over a bat flip and that brief second when Gomez admired his long shot were completely overblown, it’s still no reason for Carlos to break away from the home plate umpire in the attempt to start raining blows upon your opponent.… Read the rest

Kohl’s Legacy; Commitment

Posted in Bill's Blog

He’s been accused of being cheap, meddling, scarce and downright incompetent at times.  Senator Kohl has had his detractors over the years.  Some criticism is just but the majority of accusations are merely anger and frustration disguised as some type of knowledgeable breakdown when it comes to the Bucks organization.

What the Senator has done for Bucks fans is keep the franchise viable in the city that he loves so much.  He has spent large market dollars on a worthwhile head coach in George Karl and listened to the basketball operations when they wanted the likes of Anthony Mason and traded away a fan favorite in Ray Allen for “The Glove” Gary Payton.… Read the rest

When It Comes To The NFL…Just Say No To The Don

Posted in Bill's Blog

He was money and flash and prominence, he was also the worst thing the league needed.  I’m speaking of Donald Trump and his ownership of the now defunct New Jersey General of the USFL.

This was a league that consisted of NFL style of football, Ringling Brothers Circus and some WWE.  In the mid 80’s, it was a league that had a legitimate shot at co-existing with the nation’s biggest sport, the National Football League.

Donald TrumpWhile the rest of the league wanted to grow slow and steady, Trump wanted to move the season from the spring and summer to the fall and compete directly with the “Bog Boys” of the NFL. … Read the rest

We Tell Ourself, It’s Just One Loss

Posted in Bill's Blog

They step out of the dugout and have a swagger about them.  They stand tall and rarely smile.  It’s all business.  You look at them with great awe, at the way they work, the way they walk, the way they hustle, the way they stretch, they warm up for they are the St. Louis Cardinals.

Am I being a bit over the top here?  A little but there’s something about the team from St. Louis that has to command your respect. 

Since the 2011 NLCS the Brewers have lost 24 of 35 games against the Cardinals and have been outscored 190-119. … Read the rest

This Is A True Story, Not Just A Sales Pitch

Posted in Bill's Blog

It started out as a sales call and ended up and a “WOW, my life is better” moment.

7 months ago I met with the guys over at NuMale Medical Center about some advertising.  They explained to me their process and treatments for ED (Erectile Dysfunction).  When Dr. Chris Asandra asked me if I wanted a treatment to see for myself how the product worked, I told him thanks but I’m good in that area. 

As I found more about their center, we started to discuss Low T (Low Testosterone).  When he asked me some questions, as a man over 30, I began to realize that I had every symptom that he described. … Read the rest

We The Media Owe Kaepernick An Apology

Posted in Bill's Blog

This past week we witness the worst about “be first” reporting.  TMZ Sports came out with the Colin Kaepernick story basically accusing the 49ers quarterback of sexual assault.  In reality, it was a nothing story.  At worst, Kaepernick was in a room where pot was being smoked from a bong.  As to who was actually smoking the pot, we’re not even sure of that to this point.

The Miami police who were investigating an incident of some sort, at the request of the woman who was in the apartment, confirmed that there are no allegations of wrongdoing.

Those who don’t care for Kaepernick, for whatever reason, came out of the woodwork to stereotype him and cast harsh verbal stones. … Read the rest

Bikers, Military, Friends & Family – HELP US!

Posted in Bill's Blog

 DSC02453We’ve updated the info for the Steinhafel’s Big Unit’s Poker Run Presented by Road America Benefiting the Fisher House of Wisconsin.

When my son was young, I had to take him to live at a Ronald McDonald House in St. Louis.  The fact that we were able to stay there, for an extended period of time cost free, meant the world.  AND…having family around him made the experience a lot more tolerable for the entire family. 

Having loved ones around while you’re going through something traumatic has been proven to aid healing and rehabilitation.

I think that everyone knows someone who has either served in the military and/or been injured in service to our country.  … Read the rest
