Milwaukee Brewers Superfan Front Row Amy is Someone that Exists

Remember Front Row Amy, the Milwaukee Brewers superfan who was a huge internet sensation back in 2010, or 2011 or whenever it was? Well, the internet still seems to care a lot about her for some reason, and that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. She doesn’t really do anything news worthy at all.

Milwaukee Brewers t-shirts celebrate Ryan Braun “Innocence”

ryan-braun-innocent

“I’m not that innocent.” Those are the words of the noted Southern American philosopher Britney Spears. And the phrase applies to Milwaukee Brewers slugger and 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun.

But Ryan Braun is innocent when it comes to PEDs. Or at least he’s not guilty. And a t-shirt company appealing to Brewers fans has something to say about it- using the medium of cotton and polyester.

Too early to give up on the Milwaukee Brewers making the playoffs?

Just a mere seven months ago, the Milwaukee Brewers were the 2011 National League Central Champions and a serious contender for a trip to the World Series.

Now, twenty seven games into the 2012 regular season and the Brewers (12-15 record) couldn’t look any further from that team who broke numerous franchise records and captured the hearts of baseball fans all over Wisconsin.

Sorting out the Ryan Braun Fiasco; Who were the winners and the losers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unlike most of the sports media world, I thought I would sit back and soak up the details before discussing my opinion on the scandal/drug testing fiasco involving the reigning National League MVP and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun.

Thus far, we’ve heard the results of the appeal, some details involving the test, Braun’s comments and the MLB’s irate feelings on the entire situation.

In his speech following the acceptance of the 2011 MVP Award, Braun thankfully didn’t give the award back as ESPN’s Buster Olney suggested earlier in the day, but he did provide some insight on his status through these troubling times.
