Everybody can now relax, Guido the Italian racing sausage has been found. (He’s #3, above.)
The Klement’s Racing Italian Sausage went barhopping in Cedarburg recently, delighting patrons and posing for photos. The only problem: No one can say who was wearing the $3,000 costume, which had just been stolen from the city’s Winter Festival. The 7-foot-long weenie was lying unused in a backroom at the Milwaukee Curling Club’s new Cedarburg location during a fundraiser on Feb. 16 with beer-tasting and curling, and a witness saw the sausage walk out of the south door about 7:45 p.m., … “We thought it was funny at the time,” Detective Jeff Vahsholtz said. “Now we’re just hoping someone returns it.”
The Brewers fan-designed uniform (to be wore by the team on March 22 in Arizona and March 30 in Milwaukee) was created by a Twins fan.
It features the Brewers lesser-known mascot, “Beer Barrel Man”. He was used by the Brewers from 1970-1977. And he is AMAZING.
Important note: “The Beer Barrel Man is sometimes confused with Bernie Brewer. Bernie has always been a human figure, first a regular man in lederhosen and then a costumed human mascot suit.”- Wikipedia
Get it right, people. Get it right.

The Brewers are holding a contest in search of new uniform designs. Which, thank heavens, because the current Brewers uniforms have somehow managed to make a team named after beer boring.
Unfortunately, the contest winner will only see their uniform worn during a 2013 spring training game, but considering that a) spring training unis are one of the worst things one can see on the baseball field and b) if it’s a truly great uniform the team could soon adopt it, only good can come of this. Get full details on the contest here.
What’s there to be scared of anyway? After all, the last time a team held a fan design contest, we ended up with these:
Okay, so maybe a little concern is justified.

That is all.
