Wisconsinites don’t seem to need many reasons to sit outside and tailgate in barely above-freezing temperatures. And when you give them reasons like the Brewers home opener, people get kind of crazy.
I’ve never been to opening day for any baseball team. I’ve only heard stories about the crazy fans in the parking lot before the game and the drunkenness of the fans who manage to stumble their way into Miller Park.
For those familiar with the Mifflin Street Block Party in Madison, it’s like a small version of that with older people and baseball. And maybe more brats.
The game itself was only interesting for 2 innings. I was only responsible for fan portraits and other miscellaneous feature photos, so luckily I didn’t have to pay too close attention to the action.
