The energy is always a little bit different when the Milwaukee Brewers come to town.
When the Brewers come to town, there’s suddenly an increase of people who claim that Spotted Cow is beer’s gift to God and wear ‘Party Like It’s 1982’ T-shirts. There are comments made about the lack of tailgating facilities and how the concourses are not spacious enough and, ugh, what is that, sky? Isn’t there some way to blot out that unsightly glowing orb?
The standings never really seem to matter. One team could be on top of their division, like the Twins, and another, like the Brewers for example, could be so far out of the race that the Cubs are thinking about dropping them as their minor league affiliate. It doesn’t matter. For the Twins-Brewers series happens in a six-game microcosm. Winner of the series retains bragging rights until football season.
It is the place to be in the summer. And, for the first time in several years, this series falls on a weekend. Need more convincing to get down to Target Field this weekend? Check out these on-field moments from when the Brewers came to town.
