The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping, but the Brewers and the Packers couldn't be hotter right now.

The Brew Crew has clinched its first division title since mustaches weren't considered ironic (and before most hipsters sporting beards were even born). And the Super Bowl champion Packers are 3-0 and on a roll.

On the other hand, politics keeps getting uglier, and there's no end in sight for the NBA lockout. Does anyone even care, though? And a little north of Brew City, the ongoing drama with Sheboygan Mayor Bob Ryan continues.

Sorry, we're speechless on that one.

As we enter October, here's our light-hearted look at what's hot – and what's not this month in Milwaukee.
