    "Once in the past month" ??

    That doesn't sound right. With the weather warming, I'm think AT LEAST once in the past WEEK!!

    I'm sure UW Madison had a lot to do with it. Bring a spare liver if you're attending a party there.

    Yeah, out of the 4 people in my HS class that I knew that went to UW Madison, they all came back alcoholics. I'm not kidding.
    Living in MN, I already knew they'd rank at the top anyway [​IMG]

    Perhaps, Cheese-heads are trying to drown their repressed rage from going way out of their way to avoid cursing.[​IMG]
    Just a stereotypical observation of some of my Midwest friends. Sometimes, I feel like coaching them- "Just say it, you'll feel better. F-U-..."[​IMG]
    Interestingly, whenever I'm home in WV, I feel the urge to hit the bars. Here in FL, I have NO (none, nada) desire for a drink. Cold weather->drinking???

    Wait, I don't remember going to UW-Madison. I went to Ripon College. A little private school about a hour north-west of Milwaukee. Some organization did a study of drinking on the campus and the average person comsumed 18 beverages per Friday or Saturday. Take away the 100 or so that didn't drink, but add my fraternity, and we were a little disappointed. We knew that we drank more than that. So, what was our goal for the next year?...raise the average. They stopped doing that study since our mission was to top the previous number. But what did they think would happen? Did they think we would say, "Oh crap, we are drinking way too much...let's not enjoy these years of our life anymore."? Can't put a number like that in front of some college kids and think that they won't try to top it. I came out ok.

    Wisconsin is good at one more thing...sportsmanship. Did anybody see Shawn Green single-handedly slaughter the Brew Crew last night? Green came up to bat in the 9th with 2 outs and a 5-5 performance with 3 dingers, and the Brewers still pitched at him! When he hit that last home run, the crowd cheered like nuts...and the game was in Milwaukee!!! The crowd was probably really drunk, but still.

    Congrats on the new total base record, Shawn.
    From: a Brewer fan.
