Among the best hitters in baseball this season, Jesus Aguilar should already be a National League All-Star. He’s not yet, which is why the Milwaukee Brewers launched their "We Believe In Jesus; Do you?" campaign to get Aguilar selected via the Camping World All-Star Final Vote.
It’s also why, all day on Tuesday, Who’s On Third, 1007 N. Old World 3rd St., is hosting a Jesus is an All-Star Vote Party. The sports bar will have beer and drink deals, opportunities (aka constant reminders and encouragement) to vote for Aguilar and food specials.
The Final Vote ends Wednesday at 3 p.m., but Brewers fans can help push Aguilar to the front of the polls by getting out the vote Tuesday at Who’s On Third.
According to the bar, there will be buy one, get one tap beers and $1 cherry bombs, happy hour specials with $3 taps, $3 rails and $5 buffalo dip, GMA dip and hummus.
And there will be the communal joy of electoral democracy, making a difference and getting Jesus Aguilar into the All-Star Game.
Born in Milwaukee but a product of Shorewood High School (go ‘Hounds!) and Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!), Jimmy never knew the schoolboy bliss of cheering for a winning football, basketball or baseball team. So he ditched being a fan in order to cover sports professionally - occasionally objectively, always passionately. He's lived in Chicago, New York and Dallas, but now resides again in his beloved Brew City and is an ardent attacker of the notorious Milwaukee Inferiority Complex.
After interning at print publications like Birds and Blooms (official motto: "America's #1 backyard birding and gardening magazine!"), Sports Illustrated (unofficial motto: "Subscribe and save up to 90% off the cover price!") and The Dallas Morning News (a newspaper!), Jimmy worked for web outlets like CBSSports.com, where he was a Packers beat reporter, and FOX Sports Wisconsin, where he managed digital content. He's a proponent and frequent user of em dashes, parenthetical asides, descriptive appositives and, really, anything that makes his sentences longer and more needlessly complex.
Jimmy appreciates references to late '90s Brewers and Bucks players and is the curator of the unofficial John Jaha Hall of Fame. He also enjoys running, biking and soccer, but isn't too annoying about them. He writes about sports - both mainstream and unconventional - and non-sports, including history, music, food, art and even golf (just kidding!), and welcomes reader suggestions for off-the-beaten-path story ideas.
