The last tine we saw a talking wiener, the Democrats lost a House seat they'd had since the Alamo fell.

The Brewers are getting their weenies whacked tonight.

Only Titus can speak to "racing meat."

Would MLB let the sausages run in the world series?

Ugh! Tonight's game. I don't wanna talk about it.

And so as dumb c%$#$%%i don't provide feedback so much as a lack of understanding I'll not make mine other than not quite unBuckley:

I love traditions like this. Pure fun - no adult level thinking is allowed.

Just went to my very first pro baseball game ever, just a couple weeks ago. There is so much hilarity all during the pregame runup - T-shirt slingshots, a live polka band, crazy recognitions, a dozen different people pitching "the first pitch," I think racing sausages would just be FAB! (But of course, it wouldn't work in the STL.)

Oh, and Ann? I didn't think this evening's result was so bad. On to Game Three!

I think the Budweiser Clydesdales are gonna give the Miller Brewers more than they can handle.

The first rule of Meat Racing is: you do not talk about Meat Racing.

The second rule of Meat Racing is: you DO NOT talk about Meat Racing!

Couldn't watch the game last night. Turned on the laptop and AAARRGGHHH!!!

But, I seem to remember back in '82, the Brewers blew the Cards out in game one, so maybe this is just going in reverse. Always figured the Brewers would need 7 to win.

By the way, does anyone turn on the TV to see what happened overnight anymore?

The sausages showed up (were hired) as surprise guests at my nephews wedding reception, last summer. It was quite the hit - they stayed and danced for over an hour with everyone mugging for pictures.

And yes, boy was that ugly, last night.

I don't see whay not. Plus Bud Selig, ex-Brewers owner is commissioner.

Of course if they don't figure out Pujols we may never know.

The Chicago Bulls used to have a scoreboard race...I forget the theme then, now it's sponsored by Dunkin' Donuts...and you could see the players watching it from their timeout huddle. Phil Jackson would be yakking away and Jordan and Pippen would be watching the "race". Knowing Jordan, he probably had a cople hundred grand riding on it.
