One, two, three four, five, six, seven, eight. Schlemiel. Schlemazl. Hasenpfeffer Incorporated...
The air smells of excitement, competition and fried cheese here in Wisconsin tonight as the Marquette Golden Eagles prepare to do battle with the mighty Panthers of Pitt. And make no mistake about it, they do love their team here in Milwaukee.
We're here on press row, eye level. The court stretches out in front of us; the band is thumping like a jet plane in our ears from behind us. And an impressive crowd for a fan base that has to brave Wisconsin-in-February temps. It's a Gold-Out. It's a throw-down. It's a regular Brew-ha-ha. This is Marquette Basketball, and right now, before tip-off, the world is everyone's oyster.
Tonight we'll dive headlong into Marquette fandom and see what it's all about. We may even get some cheese on our shirts. But that's okay, because the cheese here is really, really good.

Welcome to Milee-Wa-Kay

At any point during site registration, did anyone wonder if perhaps this is just a big scheme by CBSSports(line) to collect email addresses? I mean, they stand to collect A LOT of email addre$$e$. We're all just pawns man, pawns.

Anyhoo, yeah, GREAT JOB so far you guys!
You go drink America's Milee-Wa-Kay-Shakes. With a loooooong straw.

PS- At every stop of the way you should get a picture of someone doing the John Wall dance.

Everytime I think of Milwaukee I'm reminded of the scene in Wayne's World 2, when they go to Milwaukee for the Alice Cooper concert. And Alice knows everything about the history of the city and says that he finds it "fascinating that Milwaukee is the only major American city to have ever elected 3 socialist mayors." I think that clip needs to be posted on KSR for this post on the Marquette game.

Brown Tweed Nation has got your back, C.M.  Give 'em hell in cheeseland, but don't give 'em the clap.  It's not polite.

Make sure you guy sample the entire world of Wisconsin cuisine.  That means try both cheese curds AND fried cheese curds.  You'll be able to spend a day of driving bewildered by the squeak.

This is such an awesome gig. You guys are off to a great start and will continue to do great - as long as drew can get back into the game.

Love all the pics guys great stuff. How different is this studnet section as opposed to Rupp and what is the best thing to eat at the game?
