Last night, I was watching the Brewers game and FS Wisconsin's Brian Anderson asked viewers what position Prince Fielder would play if he was a football player. I'm not sure what spot won the poll, but fullback seemed to me like the best answer. Prince always struck me as having a William Henderson-esque physique.
This morning, I was talking to my colleague, Drew Olson, who does a little work with Brewers TV, and he told me that he'll fill in for Telly Hughes for Sunday's game. I told him it was low pressure, since most Wisconsin sports fans will be watching the Packers instead of a now meaningless Brewers game.
Then, I ran across an ad on Brewers.com for a new crop of team hats. When I saw the green and gold Brewers "crossover cleanup hat," I had a silly idea. We've all seen people wearing Packers jerseys to Brewers games (I hate that), but let's say your loyalty truly is divided some Sunday afternoon in the fall.
Why not wear this Packers' themed Brewers hat and a Packers jersey that reads Fielder #28 on it? At the very least, it would get some chuckles. At its best, it would blow some peoples' minds (like my first impression of that hat).
Funny idea? Maybe. Been tried before? I haven't seen it. Am I gonna do it? Nope.
But if you do, let me know how it works out.
You don't even have to give me credit for the idea.
This borders on the line of silly! this hat is like the guy who wears a favre jersey to a brewer game! why do it. I will give you points for being creative but if people start wearing that hat it will be a disgrace to the brewers! do we have to "packer" everything?

I didn't even see the first "Making a Murderer" piece our columnist Jessica McBride submitted to us over the holidays last month. I only took notice when our site traffic jumped through the roof the Monday after New Year' Eve. It was time to publish our first OnMilwaukee book. "Rush To Judgment" came together in what I assume is a record time.

Just kidding. Do read this. But we're not kidding about Unplugged Week. Sometimes you need to turn off that the phone, computer, tablet or TV for a little while. It's OK, and it's healthy.

Back in October, in the middle of the night, I bought a Jawbone UP2 activity tracker for about $80. That fitness tracker purchase turned out to be a really wise Ambient buy: among other things I learned, it led me down the path to learning I suffer from moderate sleep apnea.

I had to wait until the final day of 2015 to write this recap, because I had a feeling that the movie I saw yesterday ("Star Wars") would be on this list. Sure enough, it was. So here goes another highly subjective look back into the year that was.

I went to Vegas with a plan, and that plan was to have no plan. I came here to get away from work, not to do more of it, like I usually do on "vacation." But that wasn't in the cards, for three reasons.

Not everything sucked when we were kids. I know this because my daughter plays with a bunch of the toys my parents saved from my childhood. As the new "Star Wars" opens this weekend, I'm reminded that we grew up in the golden age of action figures. Before video games and technology turned them into something else.

If the RNC finds itself in a position supporting the certifiably insane Donald Trump, it may spell the end of the Grand Old Party as we know it. The decisions it makes over the next six months will have ramifications to the conservative cause for years to come.

Any time we see "Ryan Braun" trending on Twitter, we need to take a second look. Today, it's because he's in Milwaukee to take donations for the Hunger Task Force, but there are some new unsubstantiated trade rumors swirling around social media, too.
