Brew Crew

On Friday night we attended our first Brewers game of the season. Because they are doing pretty well this year, it's a little bit harder to get tickets and the last 19 games have been sell outs! Go Brewers!

You have to admit that this is a pimp stadium....retractable roof and all.

Look who I found: Bernie Brewer.

What a perfect night for a baseball game, complete with a cold beer and good company.

Our bleacher seats were pretty awesome except for all of the random drunkards falling over and screaming obscenities during the game. Eh, I guess that is to be expected.
The best part of the whole night: the sausage races! For those of you non-Milwaukeeans, we have an Italian sausage, Hot Dog, Chorizo, Bratwurst, and Polish sausage. I totally wanted the Italian to win and Nate voted for the hot dog.
Freaking Chorizo blew the rest of the sausages out of the water!

We sat right under Bernie Brewer's slide and he poked his head out at us a few times. Isn't he a doll?
The Brewers won and we had lots of fun. My only complaint was I was tired from running 18 miles that morning so the game seemed to last forever. I had to entertain myself a little bit and came up with my new favorite question: If you were a professional baseball player, which song would you choose for the 'at bat' song?

Some of the Brewers chose hard core rap songs and some chose country tunes. I think I would start out with Nelly's 'Batter Up' because I'm tough like that. Nate couldn't commit for his choice but I decided that he'd use Nelly's 'Pimp Juice' for a starter.

Which song would you choose? I know it's a hard decision but just try:)


  1. Ahh..the infamous "at bat" song...this has been a major source of discussion in the Weiss household each and every kickball season. I insist that each of us have a song..Jim doesn't think anyone else would be game. I disagree..what's better than a pimp song to get you going?

    I can't remember any of the songs I wanted. But if I had to pick one now I'd go with "Pump it Up" by Joe Buddens!

  2. In laymens..."batter up" is a great choice but what about "breathe in, breathe out"...that would definitely motivate you. I always liked Scott Rolens pick of "rollin". It's a good play on words.

  3. Ohhh....I've ALWAYS thought my song would be Nelly's Batter Up! Seriously! I tell people that at Cardinal games and they look at me like I'm crazy. I think they're just jealous. And they are :)

  4. Looks like a grand old time. We sadly haven't made it to a Twins game yet. :(

    My at bat song would have to be AC/DC You shook me all night long.

  5. My hubby Scott is going to the Cardinals vs. Brewers game tonight in STL!!! GO CARDS!

    And I would totally have to bat to something old school and girly... like Pat Benatar's Hit Me with Your Best Shot!!

  6. Ewwwww - a Brewers game??? Julia - please tell me you haven't convereted already!?!?!?!

    Oh, and I'd pick the Bananas song :)

  7. SO jealous of the retractable roof at your stadium! I can't wait for our new stadium, but I'm just not sure that completely roofless was the best idea for Minnesota.

    My at bat song would have to be The Way You Move by Outkast.

  8. Sausage races=best.idea.ever. LOVE IT!

    My at bat song would be Hypnotize by Notorious B.I.G.

  9. Those sausage races are probably more exciting than the actual game! I'll have to get back to you on that song thing...

  10. I've heard of those sausage races before! Can't you volunteer to be one of the racers?

    My song would be Eminem "Guess Who's Back".

  11. not a huge baseball fan here - looks like the game was a blast though. I'd be completely dragging after running 18 that morning too! you are a rockstar!
    I would go with 'bring em out' by TI. or something by michael jackson, my favorite, his old music still rocks.

  12. Very nice choices, ladies. And yes---I could say I'm a Brewers fan now. I mean the stadium alone is pimp [much love to Busch, but still] and then the sausages put it over the top. Not to mention that the fans are somehow drunker than Cards fans:)

  13. Bernie Brewer needs a tan........
    Anyway, what fun, a ball game! Can you believe I lived for 23 years in Illinois an hour away from Chicago and never went to a Cubs game? Sacrilegious, I know.
    At bat song would have to be Sweet Caroline.

  14. Oh dear. A brewers fan?!! And here I thought you were still a home-town STL girl!!!

    Um, I was JUST playing the same "at bat" song this past Friday night at the Cards game. However, I could not settle on anything. Good choice with the ol' Nelly.

  15. I went to a Majors game in London last night and was inspired by their songs to choose one- Michael Jackson- Billie Jean
    A song that gets you dancing and pumped up to hit a home run!
