I want to write about the Brewers as my team of favorite interest in baseball



To the Brewers and their fans a team I grew up with

During the last week or so since I started writing on sb nation I've learned a lot about my sports blogging and have a lot more to learn. I've explored my fandom of teams and discovered the difference between teams I like and teams I really am a fan of and want to write on. I've also discovered I have more to learn on a site like this if I want to be the good quality of sportswriter/blogger that I want to be. Anyways I've also figured out that I would like to write about the Milwaukee Brewers as my team of main interest in baseball. When I joined this blog they told me I should pick a team and a sport and specialize in it. I tried a number of different sites as you have seen and discovered that my fandom wasn't strong enough to be a "die hard " fan of some of those teams. But while I'm a passionate fan of a lot of those teams I realized the Brewers were my favorite team to write on for a number of reasons. I grew up in Milwaukee and went to several Brewers games at County Stadium for over 20 years. Since I moved away I've been back to Miller Park three times already and I wish it could be more. I even had a friend that worked in the Brewers front offices for a number of years as well so that gave me some insight also. Finally I have always loved the Brewers unconditionally even when I knew they didn't have much of a chance financially in a sport without a salary cap. But they did get Miller Park, stayed in Milwaukee and with good ownership and management they have stayed in Milwaukee, made the playoffs in 2008 after 26 years and are a playoff contender again this year despite their small market. So those are reasons I'd like to write on the Brewers and I hope you can help me to find my best place here.  Also I'd like to thank a few people who have made me feel more welcome on this site so far than most of the others and thats another reason I'm choosing the Brewers as my main site to write on even though I might occasionaly comment elsewhere. Thank you pagsbrewcrew for sticking up for me on the other sites when a lot of other people weren't and losincatmanlove I hope I can be that baseball friend for you there every day in the bottom of the ninth no matter what. I don't know if this is what I'm supposed to say or write on this site but I just wanted to share my thoughts with you and I hope to keep writing and improving here at sb nation. Thanks so much for your help
