With the Blewski's on pace for a 67-95 season, sitting in last place in the NL Comedy Central as of this writing with a 29-41 record, tied with of all teams, the Cubs, 16 games out of first place, it's safe to say if you're looking to enjoy the summer months ahead, the place to be will be on rivers, lakes or streams in pursuit of your favorite fish, not at $8.50 Miller Park.

That can't be said for a trip to the old ball park these days in Milwaukee. Nope, head out to your nearest favorite fishing spot and reel 'em in to your hearts delight instead.
