My buddy Dana is from the Midwest, Milwaukee to be specific, and a huge sports fan, loves his teams in The Mil, knows a lot about sports and we’re about the same age.

Dana was living a similar life in Wisconsin, though under much different circumstance when it comes to means and accessibility. Nevertheless the Bay brought us together about 20 years ago, and we often remember stuff from the 70s, though not always precisely.
