And so I awoke in the wee hours of the morning yesterday to watch stars fall from the sky. A 4:30 a.m. alarm clock somehow proved powerful enough to pull me from my warm, blanket-riddled bed and before I knew, it a faithful companion and I were wandering down Langdon Street in search of falling meteors.??
I walked into a local State Street sports bar this past Sunday and was pretty amazed at what I saw. Blaring on the tavern's largest screen was a WWE wrestling match. On two other TVs, race cars flew by and on some obscure television set in the corner, some sort of baseball game was going on.
My little sister came to town this weekend'all the way from Tucson, Ariz. With her she brought her usual complaints about the cold and an article she had copied from her school's student newspaper. It was an account of 17 Wildcat fans coming to Madison for the very first time. It talked about how these diehard University of Arizona fans came wanting to prove to us \cheeseheads"" that their school was no longer ""just a basketball school."" Though a 21-point defeat (which some may remember as our fifth straight victory of the year) caused them to quickly rescind the statement, they nonetheless left with nothing but good things to say about the Madtown.
I still have vivid childhood memories of the great excitement garnered in Milwaukee by Paul Molitor's famous 39-game hitting streak. My family did not receive the morning paper at the time'and my dad did not believe in cable TV'and so in almost storybook fashion, I would awake each morning in eager anticipation of the note he would leave before work each day detailing how Molitor had done the night before. On certain nights I would actually stay up and watch the news with him, or overhear it from my parent's closed door as I pretended to sleep, but in most cases it was from this note I received my daily information.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate State Attorney General Jim Doyle may have won last Tuesday's Democratic primary, but he still has yet to win the support of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO.
Perhaps more than anything, in the sporting sense that is, the events of this past Sept. 11 taught us that the games we pay professional men and women so much money to play are really nothing more than that'games.
My good friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, managed to sprain his ankle this past weekend. He had one too many drinks Saturday night, stumbled on a curb and woke up the next morning with more than just a pounding headache. After several days of hobbling around, he was persuaded to see a doctor and the news he received was crushing.
Call me what you want, threaten me as you will, but truth be told, I am not a fan of Miller Park'the Milwaukee Brewers' now 1-year-old stadium. The food's too expensive, I feel bad throwing peanut shells under its shiny new seats and the revamp all but ruined Bernie Brewer. So without a Badger baseball team to rant and rave about during this time of year when our national pasttime still seems interesting (and still not sold on women's softball), here are the three top reasons why I miss County Stadium.
I met Bud this past week while cruising along Highway 191 in Jackson, Wyoming.
The official team photo of the U.S. Men's Curling Team looks as if it could have been stolen off the wall of Waunakee's All-Star Lanes. Its members are more apt to be participants in the popular Men's Tuesday Night League than to be Olympic athletes competing on the world's stage. And who's to say they weren't?
The UW-Madison sporting world lost one of its brightest and most energetic members this past week'and it is likely that few even noticed.
Well, it appears to be that time of year again.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.'With hopes of playing the role of the Homecoming spoiler for a second week in a row, the Badgers' chances fell just short Saturday, losing a heartbreaker to the Fighting Illini 42-35.
When the Hoosiers of Indiana come to Camp Randall this Saturday to do battle with our faithful Gridders, one thing's for sure: It will be a lonely day for one Buckingham U. Badger.
'Chess is not like life, it is the same as life.'
The popular sports magazine Sports Illustrated produced a pretty interesting piece the other week.
