Tough Weekend for Wisconsin Sports

First the Badgers lose to Michigan after giving up a big lead, then the Brewers lose the second game of the series to the Cubs, and then on Sunday the Packers lose to Tampa Bay (and sustain more injuries). This could have been topped off by another loss to the Cubs today. However, the Brewers were able to pull through and beat the Cubs 3 – 1 to win the series and, thanks to the Marlins beating the Mets, secure a spot in the playoffs for the first time in 26 years! Sabathia, Braun and the rest of the Brewers helped clinch the National League wild card. World Series here we come!

Improv Everywhere: Best Game Ever

Improv Everywhere has done a bunch of cool stuff. In their recent mission, entitled Best Game Ever, they send a NBC major league filming crew/stage, the Goodyear Blimp, and a bunch of staged fans to a little league game in Hermosa Beach, California. This is what one mother wrote to Improv Everywhere:

I believe you guys are behind the “Hermosa Beach Little League” taping that took place Saturday, March 10th, 2007. The parents will be talking about this for a long time… the kids even longer. My son was a pitcher on the Lugnuts. We had a long/tough season last year. Saturday made up for everything. I want to sincerely thank you for making Saturday so unbelievable. It was like a birthday, Christmas, and New Years Eve captured in a few amazing hours. Thanks a million for a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The kids looked really excited. What an experience for them!
