Weill's Midwest Swing (Baseball, Football)


Started in Green Bay to see the famous...
Green Bay Bullfrogs. They won 4-1. They are in the Northwoods League (NCAA).

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then the Green Bay Packers. They romped the Seattle Seahawks 48-13.
Image
Image
Image
F16's in a preseason game? whatever I thought it was cool.
Image
Image
Lambeau leap...
Image
after Lambeau leap...
Image
after Lambeau leap...
Image
...resulted in this score.
Image

Then on to Milwaukee to see the Cards-Brewers for 2 games.
The Cards would win both.
Miller Park
Image
Image
Time to open the dome!
Image
Image
Sausages before the game.
Image
Mr. Pujols would launch a shot of the scoreboard in center later in this at bat.
Image
and here he is shaking 3rd base coach hand
Image
The Prince and 1/3rd of the Molinas
Image
Rolen went 4-4.
Image
Image

Game 2
Image
Image
Are the Milwaukee Brewers racist?
Image

Then, as if following the Cardinals, I went to Wrigley. The first game got rained out, and this one had a 1 hour and half rain delay. Cardinals won 6-4.

The Friendly Confines.
Image
Wrigley Field.
Image
The classic Wrigley scoreboard.
Image
Ted Lilly pitching.
Image
Didnt know Kerry Wood was back.
Image

Then headed down to the Southside of Chicago to take in a White Sox-Royals game. White Sox would take the Win, their 2nd in their last 10 games at the time. I felt like a Dodger fan, I only got there about 20 before gametime because I got tickets late, but I usually go to BP.

Jermaine Dye

Bobby Jenks, who got his record snapped the night before.

Nice pix. Enjoy your trip.

I spent a month in Greenbay one week in 1990, guest of the Greenbay Western Railroad.

The parent company of the railroad I worked for also owned the GBW and Fox River Valley RR. I was our computer and communications rep at the corporate get togethers.

Greenbay was closed at 6 PM every day...it was really boring.

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

Thanks ugf!

The shots that made Miller Park look empty were taken probably an hour before the game started, people seemed to come at the absolute last minute there, I got there 2 hours early and had the whole upper deck to myself til about 45 mins.
