My name is Steve. I’m a senior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I created this blog as an assignment for a Publications Production class, so this is all new to me. I’m a die-hard Milwaukee Brewers fan, so the only thing I could think to blog about was the Crew. After debating tirelessly for about 45 minutes, I decided to name my blog after everyone’s favorite Brewers jingle. The name’s a little long, but it seemed appropriate. I’ll try to keep this up and running for the semester, and we’ll see what happens from there. In the mean time, bear with me. I’m learning as I go. Thanks for stopping by!
This was the original description of this blog when it was formed in January of 2007. At the time, its lone URL was stevealtstadt.wordpress.com and it received 64 hits for the entire month. It turns out I enjoyed doing it, so here we are.
Since then, we’ve experienced a few small “breakthroughs.” Due to my unemployment last year, my semi-detailed MLB 2007 draft coverage just about tripled our total hits. Dan got us mentioned on the radio in Madison. This recent Ryan Braun take was called the dumbest thing a SportsBubbler blogger has ever read, which, ironically, sent us a nice amount of new readers. Finally, the CC Sabathia trade set our single-day record for hits.
Not too exciting, but considering I started this to try to get an A in Publications Production a couple years ago, I’ll take it. It looks like I’ve “made it through the semester,” so I’ll be keeping this bad boy going. If you like this site, tell your friends. Finally, feel free to send us emails or leave comments. We always welcome a good discussion. Thanks for reading.
