This tweet from Adam McCalvy got me scratching my head:

#Brewers to unveil plans this p.m. for “new fan experience” at Miller Park to honor club founder Bud Selig. #Brewers .com will have details.

What does a “fan experience” which honors Bud Selig look like? Is it a bar? A Bud Selig-themed bar? If so, what does that look like? I assume it’s like this:

  • You and three friends enter the bar and order beers, but the bartender claims no one has ever asked him for a beer before and suggests no one really wants beer. Frankly, he’s baffled by the request;
  • Three years later, the bartender brings you and one of your friends beers, but not the other two friends, because they didn’t ask twice;
  • Your friends without the beers complain, the bartender says, yes, there may be issues with the way the beers were served, and says he’ll look at the matter. Three more years pass with no answer;
  • Three years later, the bartender comes back to you and says, no, we’re pretty satisfied with how the beer thing was handled in general and assures you that this is the best possible solution to all of this;
  • The bartender is then given a host of awards and is begged by the bar owners, constantly, to never leave employment with this bar because holy crap, what would they do without him?

The Los Angeles Dodgers filed for bankruptcy protection on June 27, 2011, blaming Selig for rejecting a television deal with Fox Network to give the financially strapped baseball team a quick injection of cash. Today’s filing marks a dramatic attempt by Dodgers owner Frank McCourt to keep the league from seizing the storied team, which he has owned since 2004.
