Kid Rock docks in Milwaukee

Keep your eyes out for the phenomenon of floating rocks today – or, in particular, just a floating Kid Rock.

Yes, after being spotted yesterday floating around the shores of Mackinac Island on a significantly not-kid-sized 198-foot yacht – reportedly appraised at $100 million – Robert "Kid Rock" James Ritchie apparently docked in Milwaukee later Tuesday.

OnMilwaukee's own Carolynn Buser noticed the gigantic Rock flotation device on the Lakefront yesterday and posted a emoji-tear-filled Snapchat about it:

Discovery World's Twitter account later made Kid Rock's arrival official, tweeting out a photo of the yacht – ingeniously named The Rock.It (I suppose there are few rock-related pun options for boat names that don't imply sinking) – and, eventually, the rock star himself with an invite to tonight's Live @ the Lakefront concert event.

Unfortunately, Discovery World, Mr. Rock and his big boat – well, technically speaking, according to the Detroit Metro Times, it's Jimmy John's boat; yes, that Jimmy John – are not here simply for sightseeing or summer festival-ing or helping deliver sub sandwiches along the Lakefront freaky fast. No, Kid Rock has a gig tomorrow night at Country on the River in Prairie du Chien to which he's likely en route.

In the meantime, however, as of Wednesday morning, Kid Rock's still docked.

So if you hear someone out by the lake today sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking about tomorrow and singing "Sweet Home Alabama" all summer long, yes, it's probably actually Kid Rock.
