About: BrewTownBoozer

I am crazy about the Brewers, so I started this blog as a way to get some of my thoughts on the record. I hope people enjoy the effort I take in sharing my opinions, that sometimes even come with facts. I hope to be the good luck charm that drives the Brew Crew to a division title in 2011.
