The Brewers will take the field on Friday against the Atlanta Braves, hopefully the first stop en route to a World Series. But even though we're a day away from postseason action, Milwaukee's already looking like a champion thanks to a new city-wide cheer campaign.
Wednesday night marked the first night of the city's literal glow-up, lighting up several Milwaukee landmarks with Brewers blue and yellow as well as donning multiple Downtown buildings with "Claws Up" banners – the team's now-official rallying cry, originated back in May when catcher Manny Pina bared his claws to celebrate a big play.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
