Plusses and Minuses

PLUS: To fantasy football for making Monday night's game that much more enjoyable.  Especially because of the comeback I mounted on the backs of Romo and Barber.
MINUS: The Brewers lost again, are now second in the wild card.  One of my bosses said Ryan Braun "Looks like a little kid out there right now."  I just think the Cubs are better.
PLUS: I have to give credit to Sveum for shaking some things up.   I can't really complain about any of it.  I hope Weeks/Hall to the bench is permanent.
MINUS: I fucking hate Cubs fans.
PLUS: And this might be the biggest one in recent days.  UW-Michigan is scheduled for 2:30 on September 27th.  For those that don't know, that Saturday is Oktoberfest in La Crosse, WI.  Watching the Badgers on Oktoberfest Saturday at Brother's is always a highlight.  I believe that 2:30 is the perfect kickoff time because it allows for everyone to properly ramp themselves up into drunkenness, and to shake off whatever illness may exist from the night before.  11 a.m. puts too much pressure on you to get over everything and get drunk quickly.  Historically, at 11 a.m. kickoffs, I am blacked out by 12:30 because I end up doing something stupid like doing a fishbowl in order to get super drunk, super fast.  2:30 allows one to ingest about 16 screwdrivers before the game, along with about 4 or 5 Jaggerbombs.

UW v Michigan at 2:30 on 9/27 is a HUGE plus. When you say Wisconsin, you said it all!

I wish I could get down there to revel in the drunkenness that is Oktoberfest, I've only been to the one in La Crosse once myself, alas I will be stuck in Eagan, Mn until 3ish and by time I got to La Crosse it would probably be 6 or 7 and you kids would be well on your way to pissing on cops horses drunk by then.
