Friday Junior: an Origin Story

I’ve long contemplated where the meaning of one of my favorite days of the week comes from. What is the origin of “Friday Junior,” a.k.a. Thursday to most of you? Through long and rigorous research, pouring over volumes, nay, troves of archival documents, reference materials, videos and old tablets and scrolls, the truth was revealed […]

I miss Brachos!

Now that we’re a handful of games into the Milwaukee Brewers season, and I’ve spent time watching (a little) and listening (a lot), I find myself missing one thing in particular.  I miss the beautiful, gorgeous, succulent, delicious, sinful, helmet full of BRACHOS! Sure, I miss watching a game in person. Miss getting a chance […]

To play or not to play? That is the question.

So, the Big Ten and Pac-12 have canceled their college football seasons So did the Mountain West, as well as numerous other small schools and smaller conferences for obvious reasons. But, not everybody is on board just yet. The whole situation surrounding college football, the economics that drive it and how its employees are treated […]

Giannis vs Luka: the NBA’s next great rivalry

Saturday night in the NBA’s bubble, we were witnessed to one of the great budding rivalries in recent NBA history: Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. Luka Doncic — two of the brightest, most talented stars in the game. The Mavs got the best of the Bucks in overtime on Saturday, 136-132, but the take away was greater […]

1982: Brewers advance to their 1st World Series.

It was Game 5 of the ALCS. Pete Ladd was on the mound for the Brewers, and Rod Carew at the plate for the California Angels. Ladd, on a 1-2 count, went high in the zone. Carew hit a short flare to Brewers All-Star shortstop Robin Yount, who threw Carew out at first, and the […]

True Grit: the 2020 Bubble Bucks

Ah yes, the 2020 NBA bubble. Quite a sight: virtual fans, shots of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s son on Zoom in the “crowd,” and, of course, high-level basketball. Thursday on WKTY the Bucks overcame a 17-point first half deficit to the Miami Heat, and ended up winning 130-116. That, my friends, is a 14-point victory, and a […]

Will college football players really hold out of the 2020 season?

The Pac-12 is taking an unprecedented step towards player equality, social justice and a desire for compensation. Wednesday, it was announced the Big Ten and its football players would look for some of what the Pac-12 players are asking for. The NCAA has had a big problem brewing for quite some time. It’s been getting […]

MLB’s saving grace: Radio

I don’t know about you but watching MLB on TV is f****** depressing. No fans, no energy, and a stark reminder that this country cannot handle its pandemic problem. On the radio however, I get to listen to Bob Uecker and suspend disbelief for two hours! Well make that more like 4-5 hours, if I […]

The biggest steal in NBA history?

In the NBA, a draft-day steal is rare. It’s not like football, where you find a sixth-round Tom Brady. In the NBA, you get it right generally within the Top 10 picks. That’s what makes the Milwaukee bucks drafting of Giannis Antetokounmpo one of the greatest steals in NBA history. The now 25-year-old was a […]

Wisconsin Dells the happiest place on Earth regardless of pandemic

Over the weekend, I had a chance to take the family, for the first time officially, to the Wisconsin Dells for a couple of nights. I have taken my son Jon and his friends a couple of times before, but we never stayed overnight. My wife also has never been to the Dells, and really […]
