Pittsburgh is normally my town for odd amusements, but Milwaukee has delivered some fun over these couple of days.
This morning, around 11 or so, I heard what sounded like somebody practicing guitar in the next room over at the hotel. It wasn’t too loud or anything, so it wasn’t a big deal. Then, a few minutes later, I realized that it was actually a band warming up — and they ended up playing apparently right outside my window. Fortunately, they were excellent. So if you’re in Milwaukee and you get the chance to go hear Reilly, I’d definitely recommend you do so. Raucous Irish rock. The kind of thing you want to hear as you’re downing half-and-half pints in an Irish pub.
But really, the highlight of the day came just a few moments ago, on the big video board in center field at Miller Park. The following text message was displayed:
"CONGRATS ON ADOPTING A PIG CALEB"
Congratulations indeed. Be good to that pig. Can he swing from a web? No, he can’t. He’s a pig.
