Big Unit = Big Fun

I have a new favorite blog to check out. It's the "Big Unit" blog by Bill Michaels from AM 620.

I've privately railed against the Big Unit to Brad on numerous occasions - he's the top sports radio host/personality for the flagship radio station in Wisconsin (and the flagship for the Brewers, Packers and Bucks), and he's basically clueless about the Brewers and Bucks (he does seem to know some stuff about the Packers, at least more than I do).

Well the first post I checked out from the Big Unit blog did not disappoint - it was a rambling stream of consciousness narrative about the Brewers off-season. My favorite part? This sentence:

You can’t blame Sabathia for testing the large body of free agent waters that’s overflowing with dollar bills washing up on his shore and vying for his services.

Holy forced metaphor Batman!

He goes on with some more ridiculousness.

By the way, make no mistake about it, the Brewers ARE expected to get to the post-season yet again this year. The bar’s been set and what once was a pipe dream for over 20 years, is now considered a right by many of the 3 million fans who strolled through the turnstiles last season.

This is an asinine statement. Any Brewers fan who considers it a right to be in the playoffs after sneaking in on the last day of the 2008 season is either (a) a frontrunner who wasn't around for any of the previous 25 seasons or (b) an idiot.

I'm going to be checking out this blog from time to time. There seemed to be some good incoherent rants about the Packers too, for those of you who are in to that sort of thing.

Making the playoffs is now considered a "right?"

How can a guy state this after watching ALL the Brewers had to go through to make the playoffs by 1 freaking game!?

Another example of the standard lack of baseball common sense these days. Pity.

The "Big Unit" has always been a douchebag. If you've ever listened to his show (and I haven't for about 3 years), he'll state an opinion then change it every 2 minutes depending on what the current caller believes (he always agrees with him).
