The View From Wisconsin
Just a random set of rants from a Sports Fan from Wisconsin.

Just a heads up for anyone and everyone: if you don't see me online a lot in the next few months, it's because of the whole fiasco surrounding Gov. Walker's budget proposal.
Onto other things:
Onto other things:
- Yes, I got my Super Bowl Champions hat and t-shirt. The shirt is for Sarah, the cap is mine. I think I'm too much of a fan, sometimes.
- I have to warn those of us in the Predators Nation that Mike Fisher is not the be-all and end-all for our problems - namely, the "inability to get past the first round" syndrome. I personally think that the move was pretty much inevitable; Ottawa probably wanted to trade him, and he only wanted to go one place (the city where his wife does most of her work). I personally think it's a good fit, but to think that we need to start planning the SC victory parade is way too premature.
- On a similar note - I think that if you honestly talked to most of us Cheeseheads and asked us if we really believed we were going to win the Super Bowl, especially after how up-and-down we were at the end of the season, I think the answer would have been a resounding no. I thing the Packers really didn't show championship potential until the Falcons game. Yes, the Eagles game was nice for the "get past 4th and 26" thing, but it was at the Georgia Dome that the Packers showed they had what it takes to win a title.
- I've taken a look at the seating chart and such for the six "temporary seating" sections that caused all the headaches at the Super Bowl. It'd be somewhat akin to the Brewers putting up temporary bleachers by the visitor's bullpen in RCF and in the RF corner plazas on the field and loge levels. My only question is this: why didn't they just build the temporary seats immediately after opening the stadium, then put them back up for the game? And why didn't they put them up for the Cotton Bowl?
