The Brewers are going to the playoffs for the first time since 1982!! I still remember skipping school as a freshman in high school in Milwaukee to go see Brewers opening day in 1983 (an excused absence with ticket stub, of course). Twenty-six years of watching the Brewers not make the playoffs... finally ends with a vicious swing of Ryan Braun's bat and a dominating, courageous, obstinate, complete game four-hit no earned run pitching performance on three days rest by the incredible C.C. Sabathia. After a turbulent season of torrid winning streaks, horrific losing streaks, the coach being fired with 12 games to go... wow. Sure, they're going to get crushed in the playoffs without Sheets and with an exhausted Sabathia, but right now... Woohoo!
Back to real stuff eventually, I promise. But now I'm just going to celebrate.
