    DM Register's Directions for a Road Trip to Milwaukee

    The front page of the DM Register's Sports section featured an article about the Milwaukee Brewers. Towards the bottom of the article was a section about taking a road trip from Des Moines to see the Brewers. On their little map they had the following directions:

    "HEAD WEST ON I-80"

    That's going to turn out to be a LONG trip to Milwaukee.

    The inaccuracies in the DMR sports section are horrible. In Monday's paper, they ran the Sunday games and start times for the NBA playoffs. I think Gannett has cut their staffing to the marrow.

    " I think Gannett has cut their staffing to the marrow"

    I think it's a question of quality, not just quantity

    I think you are correct there. They probably have high school kid putting the sports section to bed.

    While I cannot stand the "Rag" and find it hilarious that their editor must be geographically-challenged, it is a good thing that the Brew Crew is finally getting some respect. I realize that they have not had too difficult of a schedule, but good ball clubs need to be able to win head-to-head series against same-division opponents. This is something they have done thus far. (And for those who want to dis me with the "It's still too freakin' early" argument - let me ask you: Would you rather be 22-10 OR 15-14 or 12-18 this early in the season? ... thought so!). GO BREWERS!!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    I like that the Brewers are in first...show people a "small market" team can win in baseball.

    Actually, 25 years!!!! Even in '92, an excellent 92-70 record wasn't able to earn them a playoff spot. Also, I'm fully prepared to "eat crow" if for some reason the Crew's season collapses. However, as long as the injury bug doesn't hit, I think this group has what it takes to get to the playoffs - and it starts with one of Bobby Cox's disciples : Mgr. Ned Yost!

    No way. If a high school kid was writing for the Red Star, it would be a whole lot better. Instead, they hire Urinalists. Nothing like functionally illiterate, social-climbing, left-wing idealogues who all want to be the next Goebbels to produce a real quality paper.
