Ladies and Gentelmen, Captain Obvious.

Ryan Braun is on the cover of this year's Brewers' media guide. The photo is a shot of him rounding first after his 8th inning homer in game 162. It was a special moment in Braun's life, obviously.

“Obviously, that’s a great memory,” said Braun. “It’s kind of great to have it immortalized like that. That was a great day and a lot of fun.

Ryan Braun, straight from the Geoff Jenkins school of catch words.

In other news, all-everything prospect Mat Gamel showed up to camp with another injury. This time it's tightness in his shoulder. This after having an elbow issue when he received his September call-up last season and some other injury issue in the AFL. Gamel is shaping up to be the Ben Sheets of position players. I know it's too early in his career to make statements like that, but not the beginning one would hope for. We need more soul owners like Braun.

I am a staunch supporter of Big 10 basketball, but 38-33 is insane. I didn't see the game, so I can't offer too much insight, but that had to be just an awful game to watch.

Corey Hart is douche canoe.

Hello, Mr. MGD Mike, where are you?

Rubie Q said...

38-33? When do the men's teams play?

Seriously -- anyone who insists that the Big 11 is a better conference than the Big East should be forced to watch this game on an endless cycle, ala "A Clockwork Orange."

Even the "turds" of the Big East can manage 50 points in a game...

Big Ten teams in the final four the last 10 years:
0,1,0,2,0,0,1,1,2,2
Big East teams in the final four the last 10 years:
1,1,0,1,1,2,1,1,0,1

Add 'em up....seems pretty equal to me.

I love Brauns comments about roids:

"It's never something that I sought," Braun said before showing a flash of his sense of humor and his well-documented self-confidence. "I would never do it because if I took steroids, I would hit 60 or 70 home runs."

Nice.

Mr. Other Nut and all other big least conference supporters,

I would like to apologize for my insane remarks yesterday! After watching that game last night
(probably the worst game I have ever seen! ) I was wrong! My daughters 6th grade Basketball team scores more points than that! Therefor I say to you.....you sir were right and I was wrong! (Brad you were right also,but don't let it go to your head!)

MGD,

I'd say you forcing yourself to watch that abortion of a game is probably punishment enough...

brad said...

MGD - I'll accept your apology by letting you mix my first 2 jumbo Jim Beams this weekend. Your welcome.

brad said...

Lofty - you could also go Teams in the sweet 16 the last 3 years:

Big East: 3, 2, 4

Big-11: 2, 1, 0

Big East: 32

Big Ten: 11
