And the there is the Milwaukee Brewers...

I remember how desperate I was for Packers' success in the late 1980's and early 1990's. I am nearly as desperate today for Brewers' success. Only with the Brewers, there is no "glory days" to fall back on. And that's why this month is so painful and so damn depressing. It looks like they are going to collapse on themselves to again miss the playoffs. If they do, I'm not sure that it is entirely a bad thing because the way they are playing, a first round sweep is a strong possibility. Unlike the Packers, there is no Ron Wolf, no Mike Holmgren, and no Reggie White for the Brewers. They may yet surprise me this year, but I'm prepared to have a season's worth of hope crushed yet again.
