Mr. Been Cobra'd brought up the following question to the Hackers earlier today: Where will you be watching the playoff games?
Mr. BC said, "After careful deliberation I have concluded although fun to share the excitement of Brewer playoffs with 100+ strangers in a bar there are too many variables that can go wrong. I need a controllable atmosphere."
I completely agree with this. You know that there will be a lot of people out at bars looking to watch these games as another excuse to get drunk and they will have minimum baseball knowledge. These are the same people who think every fly ball is going to be a home run. These games are just too important for me to have to deal with outside distractions. I just want to watch the game with a few buddies and have some beers.
When I lived in Kansas City, I had to hit up the bars to watch most Badger and Packers games. The number of morons you have to put up with while doing this is unbelievable. Usually its people yelling out such exciting things as "Tackle him!" Throw it!" and "Run!". The best was the one lady who told me she was a huge Badger Fan and then proceeded to ask me if it was a conference game while we were playing UNLV. Yah, not good times.
So, outside of Game 4 which I will be watching with 43,000 other people, I plan on watching the games in a nice quiet location. What are your plans?
