This weeks Daybreak Doppler Dames theme is ‘The Wonderful World of Oz – Women from Australia’.

An Emily Scott (from Canberra, Australia) sort of morning.

The first game of the Brewers West Coast swing ended with a shutout, and not the the good kind as the Padres hung 9 on the ‘Crew.  Brew Crew Ball has your dismal recap this morning .

The Bucky Channel sums the game up nicely with the first couple sentences of this piece, ” Doug Davis pitched four innings, and Jeff Suppan pitched four innings. How do you think the Brewers did?

On to, I hope, happy thoughts and Bucks game tonight. Brew Hoops touches on how the Bradley Center will be a factor for the game tonight, beyond the normal home court advantage.

Aaron over at CHTV is, to put it mildly, not in favor of the Packers taking a look at, much less bringing in Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones.

In some rare Badger’s hoops news, UW recruit Devon Hodges has decommited to the program.  I don’t take this news as an indictment of Bo Ryan’s program as much as I do the fact that recruiting and then getting verbal commitments from High School sophomores and juniors is just asking for this sort of thing to happen.

Optimism Taking a Beating – I’ve said this before, but in most things in life I have a rather cynical outlook.  I figure if you prepare for the worst and it doesn’t happen, well then you’re not set up for disappointment. This is also lends itself well to my other philisophy of sarcasm as a way of life, not just a rhetorical device.  There is one area where that philosophy doesn’t apply (the cynical one, sarcasm belongs everywhere) and that is when it comes to the teams I root for.  When it comes to that I am the eternal optimist.  Down by 2 TDs with 2 minutes to go in the 4th quarter?  We can do it. Behind 4 runs in the bottom of the 9th?  One swing of the bat can fix that.  However, the Brewers are making it awful tough for me right now to maintain any level of optimism when it comes to them.  I hope the old argument of it being early and things can turn around comes true for the ‘Crew, otherwise it could be a very long Summer.  Thank God for the Bucks though right now, keeping my sports optimism alive at least for one more day.

Everyone enjoy the Bucks game tonight, have a great weekend (warm for once!) and we’ll see you back here on Monday.

    I certainly hope you will check out the latest Packers Therapy podcast, but I warn you: Pack a lunch. When NFL Draft Avatar Chad Reutuer is with us, the discussion gets expansive. I think Packers fans will find the discussion interesting, however.
