Around the Horn: Favorite Player...


Favorite player...oh, this is gonna be hard one cuz if I had to choose, my favorite player actually doesn't play for the Brewers anymore.


Corey Hart.  He's actually the one that got me into baseball & not because of his looks or his athletic ability - it was all because of his name & a certain song from the 80's:



I would always say:  "ah, Corey Hart...does he too wear his sunglasses at night?"  He was my man.  I had many of the t-shirts with his name on the back.  I voted non-stop for him during his run at the All-Star Game.  I was a fan!  Then...then, he left the Brewers & me for the Mariners & then off to the Pirates.  So, the good thing with the Pirates, the Brewers play them a lot so I'll see him again.  Awhoo hoo!

Now, if I had to choose my favorite player from my favorite team, I would probably go with Scooter Gennett & again, not because of his looks or ability but because of his name.


Okay, maybe he's a little cutie.  :)  

The Brewers' team has changed so much that it's hard to pick a favorite cuz they'll be traded off before you know it.  The only one that we can keep around is the lying druggie:


Ryan Braun sat behind this podium & broke my heart.  I stood behind him the first time there was steroids talk but then he did it again.  He lost me as a fan.  I'm not even kidding.  I took down his things I had hanging on the wall, I gave all my Braun shirts to Goodwill, he broke my heart & I don't know if it'll be a break that will ever be mended, he can try but I do know that I'll never buy another Braun item again.

Good Lord, get me talking about baseball & look at me go.  Again, Jessa & Kasey, I love this link-up!  :)

  1. OKAY Scooter, I would be his fan based on his name too. for sure. but bummer about Braun man. I hate when they can't just be adults about things. "sorry guys I made a mistake" it's not that hard.

  2. I feel your pain on both counts: my favorite player was traded away several years ago, and I went to the same school as Ryan Braun (AND we're both Jewish!) so that was a huge betrayal. I totally approve of Scooter, though! Great name + adorable = totally winner. :)

    1. You went to the same school as Braun, you've gone to a pretty popular school as I know that he isn't the only "famous person" to come from there.

      If you would like to cheer for Scooter with me, that would be great! Ha!

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.


When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
