Published Nov. 13, 2014

As a lifelong local baseball fan, some of my favorite pictures are of Milwaukee Braves' players riding in motorcycle sidecars at County Stadium in the 1960s. Of course, there's another classic motorcycle image from County Stadium in 1982 featuring Robin Yount, except he was on a Honda dirt bike instead of a Harley. These really cool vintage pictures show the long-time connection between motorcycles and sports in Wisconsin.

The Packers' roots run deep in Milwaukee

Published Oct. 2, 2014

Most remember that the Green Bay Packers used to play some of their home games in Milwaukee, but did you know that this tradition went on for over 60 years and was played at four different locations? In fact, the threat of moving the team to Milwaukee permanently was the impetus for the construction of Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Its one of the reasons why tonight's game against the Minnesota Vikings is a "gold game" for Milwaukee season ticket holders.

Published Sept. 17, 2014

It seems like a long time ago, but Khris Davis' ability to adjust his approach at the plate in mid-May (and carry it through the year) has helped the Milwaukee Brewers' left fielder remain a powerful factor in the lineup as the team looks to wrap up a postseason berth this month.

Defensive indifference

Is it time for another racing sausage?

Published Sept. 13, 2014
