About the only thing the Brewers won in the 70s


I remember this was a really big story in Wisconsin in 1975. Sports were absolutely dismal in Wisconsin back then - the Packers were terrible, the Bucks had traded Kareem away, the Badgers were terrible in everything and the Brewers. . . well, the Brewers were trying to market a team with ace pitcher Pete Broberg. So when Dirty Kurt Bevacqua won the bubble gum blowing championship, we finally had something. Check out the high-tech calipers.

Not all things in Wisconsin were dismal ... Al McGuire and Marquette were nationally ranked. :)

That's true and an excellent point. MU was about it, though.

More bad sports in the 1970's: Xavier football. Lawrence basketball. St. Therese basketball. St. Mary's gradeschool football.
