BREWERS, PACKER 2011.
The defending NFL champion Green Bay Packers are returning to the gridiron for another shot as Super Bowl Champions. The Sporting News, a vintage sports paper, names the Packers the No.1 team and the Minnesota Vikings as the last team for this coming season. we still have to play the Vikes twice and their new QB has always been a scoring machine against our Pack. The outlook for the green and gold looks promising but not perfect. The offense will be the same with Rodgers passing to his elite receivers and the defensive backs seeking interceptions. Both defense and offense lines are tentative but up to the task. Look for an improved running game. Division game wins are the priority. my prediction is a record of 11 wins 5 losses, barring key injuries.
The Milwaukee Brewers are a vastly improved baseball team. A manager who really gets involved and a pitching coach more interested in his pitchers than his own hairdo. The injury to Rickie Weeks hurts but there are enough decent players to fill the gap. It's been a long long time since we did a suicide squezze or even a good bunt. Base running is a bit risky but will continue to be the type of aggressive game we play. Having 5 reliable starting pitchers is every teams' dream. Having 2 relief closers is unheard of and having a supporting cast of good arms is great. However, there is plenty of time left until October and do not count anyone out of the race yet.
A comment about the Milwaukee Bucks. as a sports fan it is apparant that pro basketball have lost interest everywere. going to games is a hard sell even with a free ticket. it is like a wrestling match keeping you in suspense until the chosen team wins.
