Another good GB article November 22, 2007 | 10:18 AM I'm sorry to keep posting whole articles, but I really want people to read them. This is a really good look at a story that's already been told many ways. Yes, Brett Favre is older than the rest of the team. Yes, we have a lot of rookies that were literally children when Brett was a rookie. But the team makes it work and this article dissects t...

Today @ the Summerfest Grounds

Last call for knoedel! If you’re still got a craving for kuchen, sauerbraten, rollbraten, bienenstich and strudel, then get to German Fest, which completes its weekend-long run at the Summerfest grounds today, and get your fill while you can. There will, of course, also be music, dancing, fireworks and beer, beer, beer.

Since I had the honor of winning las...

Today @ the Summerfest Grounds

German Fest continues its run at the Summerfest grounds today with plenty of schnitzel, lederhosen, yodeling and beer—all the good stuff. Special today is the 3 p.m. dachshund races, your chance to see adorable but seemingly un-athletic wiener dogs flutter their stumpy little legs in an extreme contest for . . .
