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 really even know I was interested in driving a motorcycle until the House of Harley invited me to take a Riding Academy New Rider course. In three days, I checked something off my bucket list that I didn't know was on it. I took it seriously, and it was hard. But also really satisfying.

Go ahead; get those laughs out of the way. I'm trying to write a serious review of Anthony Ray's Big Gig show. You, of course, know him as Sir Mix-a-Lot, and unless you listened to his tapes in the early '90s, you probably recognize just one of his songs.
