Another Sunday, another split decision by the Observers. While Frank followed his "baseball rules" rule to attend the Brewers' home finale, Artie hunkered down in his version of NFL Central, sticking pins in his Brett Favre voodoo bobblehead. Later his phone rang...

Ethnic mascots add another element to ballpark fun

Since their first live appearance at a Milwaukee Brewers home game 15 years ago, the Klement’s Racing Sausages have been a lot of things to Milwaukee Brewers fans. At their core, the towering wieners are simply mascots representing Milwaukee’s own Klement's Sausage Co., but they’ve also become a happy distraction from a long game, a reason to place a friendly wager and a rallying point for Brewers baseball fans...

The Fairly Detached Observers

A century ago there was a hit song called “I Love My Wife But Oh You Kid.” That sentiment applies to Wisconsin’s pro sports fans as football season nears: “I love my Brewers or Bucks, but oh you Packers.” With the Green and Gold’s training camp underway and the Brewers rocked by...

I'm used to hearing all kinds of weird music at Miller Park´┐Żorgan novelties, original rap songs about Prince Fielder, reggaeton´┐Żbut I think this was the weirdest one yet: Last night the stadium played a fairly lengthy excerpt of "Lemon Yellow Black," a deep cut from Jets to Brazil, the almost great but mostly forgotten late-'90s, post-Jawbreaker emo band of Blake Schwarzenbach. The stadium had sto...

The Fairly Detached Observers

More divided duty for the Observers last week, with Frank back in New York and Artie manning the home office. They confabbed by phone on a day when baseball held a celebration under a cloud. Frank: Hall of Fame induction day should have focused completely on Rickey Henderson...

The Milwaukee Brewers hit the all-star break stumbling, if not staggering. A listless 3-7 stretch against Chicago, St. Louis and Los Angeles left the Brew Crew two-and-a-half games behind the Cardinals in their division and four behind San Francisco in the wild-card playoff race...

The Fairly Detached Observers

Milwaukee may be losing two of its sports fixtures. The Wave, the city’s indoor soccer franchise for 25 years, learned last week that its league has shut down, and the team needs to find new ownership quickly to stay alive in a different league. And the Milwaukee Mile, a home for auto racing since...

The Fairly Detached Observers

Astute sports commentary can get tiring, and the Observers felt the need to recharge. So this week Artie is up in the Northwoods and Frank is back East for a family wedding and other fun. But they stockpiled some dialogue so readers wouldn’t have to go blather-less. Frank: The Packers are...

The Fairly Detached Observers

The Observers played zone coverage again last week. Frank was on another New York visit, including a stop at the new Yankee Stadium, and Artie was at the home office monitoring the Bucks’ fortunes in the NBA draft lottery. Artie: So you’ve been to the new Cathedral of the Almighty...
