At the Protest Dog Café...



... you can talk about anything you want. Including the Brewers game, which is what we're talking about here at Meadhouse.

UPDATE: Sadness at Meadhouse. It was not to be.

That dog looks like it is thinking, "not another liberal loon"

Unfortunately, for Brewers fans, it looks more like a Cardinals game than a Brewers game.

Nice pup.

Probably smarter than a lot of the people around him.

JorgXMcKie said...

Well, as a Cardinals fan, my heart is racing. Still, I'm probably feeling better than Brewers fans.

This may end up a 20-18 you pick'em game.

Meade said...

I don't want to talk about it.

Chef Mojo said...

Clinch it, CARDS!

Lifetime Redbird guy, and I'm all over the board on this game. Jeez. Home run derby?

A. Shmendrik said...

Jeez. If the roof is closed open it. If it is open, close it!

I have a bad feeling about this. Last time the Brewers made it to the World Series, I was somewhere near Elroy on a cold and rainy afternoon, listening to the game on the car radio and it was traumatic. Not again! Not the mother-loving Cards again! Oy!

Obama, American Narcissus? Nah.

At the MLK Memorial Dedication.

The group walked along the memorial's long inscription wall and stopped at a large silver box — a time capsule to be buried at the memorial. Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia, each dropped a scroll inside. A White House aide confirmed that they were signed copies of the president's inaugural speech and his address to the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Thankfully, MLK was a "King," not just a Queen.

In a private ceremony with Queen Elizabeth, Her Royal Highness bequeathed to the Obamas one of the earliest known copies of William Shakespeare’s Henry V. She also presented him with the framed orginal sheet music of John Newton’s “Amazing Grace.” To the Obama daughters, the Queen gave a dollhouse-sized replica of Windsor Castle with a functioning train station in the year of the compound. They also received a prize Shetland pony. Mrs. Obama was given a ruby ring commissioned and worn by Queen Victoria.

The Obamas, unfortunately, did not seem prepared for the occasion despite the row set off by the exchange of gifts between Prime Minister Brown and the U.S. President barely a month ago. Mr. Obama rather unceremoniously handed the Queen a shopping bag from the Duty Free shop at Heathrow airport. It contained a signed paperback copy of Dreams of My Father, purchased at the WH Smith shop at the airport, a bottle of Johnny Walker Scotch (black label), a CD of the Swedish band ABBA’s greatest hits (still in shrink wrap with a 2-for-1 sticker on it) and ten bags of M&Ms with the presidential seal on them.

The Queen responded in a rather flat: “How delightful.”

Shit, the Rangers might score >20 runs against either of these pitching staffs.

Only one thing's gone right this season, and that's NY getting bounced ignominiously in the first round.

EDH said...

The Queen part was a Jonah Goldberg parody, I hope.

Kit said...

Looks like the last game of the year for the Brewers. It's been a fun year, but going out is hard.

caplight said...

Being a Phillies fan all of my life I bleed with the Brewers fans. I am here in Milwaukee watching the game with my son-in-law, a life-time Brewers fan. It ain't pretty.

Ann Althouse said...

I'm impressed by the Cardinals. If I were an outsider, just watching the post season games, I'd be won over by the Cardinals.

It's been a struggle watching the Brewers in this series. It's hard to watch!

Toshtu said...

Is the dog's name "Karl"?

Go Rangers!

"A White House aide confirmed that they were signed copies of the president's inaugural speech and his address to the 2008 Democratic National Convention."

Why am I not surprised.

Maguro said...

Hard to watch is an understatement, the. Brewers look like a clown college out there.

Palladian said...

"A White House aide confirmed that they were signed copies of the president's inaugural speech and his address to the 2008 Democratic National Convention."

Ah, nothing like slipping a couple of gilded turds into a box for posterity.

Palladian said...

Why were Wisconsin beer makers playing a game with a bunch of Roman Catholic church officials and/or a flock of Cardinalis cardinalis? And why were there park rangers involved? And why are you people talking about it so emotionally?

I never understand humans.

How about the Packers?

MadisonMan said...

How many errors tonight, Brewers?

Focus!

MadisonMan said...

I was hoping for two unbeaten teams meeting in Week 12. Oh well.

And then there was one.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Did anybody look at the scrolls? I'm betting they were his Kenya birth certificate and his college transcripts.

Cute dog. If it's 'Love me; love my dog,' you're in. The logic isn't exactly there, but as Megan McArdle has cited, 'Man is a rationalizing animal.'

Palladian said...

"How about the Packers?"

Meat packers, beer makers, Roman Catholic ecclesiastical officials, crimson-colored Aves, park rangers... shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

@Palladian

You're just lucky the Dodgers weren't in it.

traditionalguy said...

It's not over until Nyger attacks the fat lady.

Chip S. said...

shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

And all of them ball-players.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

I don't know how to square this with being a red-blooded American, but I was watching The Walking Dead instead of baseball.

Chef Mojo said...

@Tyrone:

You were actually watching the game, with the Walking Dead Brew Crew shambling around the diamond...

Ann Althouse said...

Ugh. The pain.

Chip S. said...

To the barricades, cheeseheads! Occupy Miller Park to protest the unequal distribution of runs in this baseball game!

Chip S. said...

Wow, George Kottars followed by Mark Kotsay.

It was like watching the 2009 Red Sox. Didn't end any better then.

Chef Mojo said...

RALLY SQUIRREL!!!

Clyde said...

I was rooting for the Tigers and Brewers this weekend (mainly since I had a couple of guys from those teams on my fantasy baseball team), and neither of them won. I'm not sure who I'll be for in the Series. The Rangers have never won one, but the Cardinals are the ultimate Cinderella underdog, and America loves an underdog, even if they have already won the World Series ten times. A good story line either way.

Clyde said...

And by the way, my scrappy fantasy baseball team (the Oconomowoc Mocs -- the little green snake is our logo) won our wild card series today in Game 6 when Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth. For our trouble, we get to face the league's best team in the next round of the playoffs. Go Mocs!

Tyrone Slothrop said...

My late father, who was born in St. Louis, could never root for the Cardinals. He was a Browns fan.

Chip S. said...

@Tyrone, Your memory reminded me of the odd coincidence that both pro teams called "Browns" wound up moving to Baltimore.

AllenS said...

The Brewers are out. The Badgers and Packers are still going strong. You know what they say, two out of three ain't bad.

Mom said...

Finally! An attractive protestor!

Patrick said...

Ahh, Nuts.
