The Fairly Detached Observers

While the Brewers were rolling past the Cardinals and taking aim at the Cubs, the Observers convened at the Ball Park—a South Side sports bar, not the place with the sliding roof. Frank: Breaking news, Artie! I’ve discovered that the stars are aligned for the Brewers...

Golf tournaments are undergoing more name changes than Elizabeth Taylor. The GMO, I mean the U.S. Bank Championship, has come and gone from Milwaukee. I understand golf tournaments are subject to the demands and orders from the PGA tour, but why is this town forced to compete for time against the British Open, I mean, The Open.
