BEER OF THE GAME:

This being the Championship of College Basketball in Wisconsin, is there really any other choice than the Champagne of Beers, Miller High Life? I think not.

What, you expected some high-falutin' microbrew, since I went to Marquette and I'm a snob? No ma'am (or sir). I'm all about breaking down stereotypes.

Enjoy the game, and bring me a home a winner -- or I have to make this my background for the next month.

Please, baby Jesus, bring me home a winner.
