Wisconsin’s big weekend

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.

  • I didn’t think those Socialist/Union types in Wisconsin enjoyed REAL American sporting events…but just went to kid’s soccer games where no one is actually allowed to win.

    Go Badgers!

    Steve@1: Wisconsin is a red state now, in case you hadn’t noticed.

    It was a indeed a good weekend, though I’m not particularly a fan of the Brewers.

    Steve@1 perhaps you’re kidding, but your fact-free, crass stereotyping is as embarrassing here as it is on the Imonk site. Give it a rest, friend.
