Keep Your Head Held High or How I Learned to Get Yesterday's Game Off My Mind and Love the 2008 Brewers)

To be honest, I was a bit down yesterday after the game (the Packers and the Badgers didn't help much either).  But this morning, I woke up, took a shower, and put on my favorite Brewers shirt with a smile.  Why? 

  1. Because of Ryan Braun's home run in St. Louis followed by Torres icing the sweep.
  2. Because I finally kept a New Years Resolution, to make it to five Brewers games, and they won all five.
  3. Because One of those was C.C.'s first in Milwaukee.
  4. Because it's now only been one day since the Brewers have been in the playoffs, and for the Cubs it's been two.
  5. Because of J.J.'s defense in the Cubs series when everything else was cover your eyes awful.
  6. Because I'm pretty sure my sister was crying when she told me Ryan Braun hit a three run homer on the last day of the season.
  7. Because I sat watching Gameday in suspence and anticipation for a Mets-Marlins game.
  8. Because Prince Fielder flat out mashed the last home run of the season.
  9. Because we got to see Dave Bush come up huge in game three after being jerked around by Ned Yost.
  10. Because I had a reason to call Craig Counsell C.C. Jr.
  11. Because of the thought of Craig Counsell trying on Prince Fielder's uniform.
  12. Because out of nowhere, Russell Branyan carried this team.
  13. Because of the number 3 million.
  14. Because of the number 90 million.
  15. Because at the end of the day, if all signs point to a job well done, I will untuck my shirt.

Thanks for 2008, now make 2009 even better.
