Once Again It Happens

From the state that is All Brett Favre 24/7, the real sports story in Wisconsin got pushed to the side last night.

Prince Fielder and Manny Parra apparently had a "discussion" after Manny was pulled for a pinch hitter (Russell Branyan) in the top of the 7th and the Brewers down 6-2. Parra threw his jacket down onto the bench, and Fielder then attempted to throw Parra onto the bench. Nearly half the team had to restrain Prince from beating the living crap out of their starting pitcher.

Meanwhile, no one notices because everyone's trying to tune in for Mike McCarthy's press conference after apparently "talking" to Brett about what he expects of him for training camp.

I am officially convinced that the Milwaukee Brewers cease to matter in the minds of the Wisconsin sports faithful as soon as Green Bay's training camp opens.
