This was being called the biggest sports weekend in the history of Wisconsin, my former state. And in each contest, Wisconsin was victorious. The Milwaukee Brewers won two playoff games over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Wisconsin Badgers welcomed Nebraska to the Big Ten by demolishing the nationally-ranked Cornhuskers. The Packers pounded the Denver Broncos. And the Milwaukee Marathon was won by a guy from Marquette.
For a brief, shining moment, Wisconsin teachers and Congressmen, tea partiers and Occupy Wall Streeters will be united in a feeling of common sports euphoria.
