For the first time in many a moon, it is kind of cool to be a Milwaukee Brewers fan. They have the best record in baseball, they're 6 1/2 games up in the National League Central (and they won again today) and they're even tossing in an occasional beanbrawl, just for good measure. And because they're big-hearted, optimistic Midwesterners, rather than assume this is setting them up for some wretched heartbreak, they're embracing their frontrunner status.
Witness Pee Your Pants For The Brewers, a fan site that implores Brewers boosters to pledge their underpants to the cause. So far, 113 Brewers fans have vowed to urinate on themselves when the Brewers make the playoffs. Of course, one never knows what percentage of that 113 would be doing that anyway.
By the way, the Brewers are clearly getting too big for their britches: They're gonna be on "The Young And The Restless."
You can't quite tell from that photo, because it's so small, but that guy's wearing a Brewers hat. The photo was taken in Madison, and is larger after the jump.)
