The first woman to be interviewed in the Brewgalfan Spectacular, Front Row Amy. She gained fame being featured on Deadspin as a gal who the front row, in plain view when the CF camera is used. Thank you to the lovely Amy for agreeing to talk to me, over the internet of course, as I'm not welcome in any woman's house, often, not even my own.

Al--Welcome! So, tell us a little about yourself. Tell me, what draws you to baseball and the Brewers? How long have you been a fan of the Brewers?

FRAmy--Believe it or not, I used to not enjoy baseball at all. I was more of a football kind of girl. In fact, when the Brewers went to the World Series in '82, I was a freshman in high school. My algebra teacher, who was a huge Brewers fan, was extra happy one day. I asked him why. "The Brewers are going to the World Series!" he said. My response? "Who are the Brewers????" But things changed in May of 2007 when, I'm a little ashamed to admit, I saw a picture of JJ Hardy in the local paper. He was cute! And the Brewers were in first place at the time, so I thought, "Maybe I'll just watch a game and see what this is all about." I can't remember which game I watched, but I know we won in exciting fashion. After that, I was hooked. And it wasn't just the game that I fell in love with - it was the team. Their chemistry was palpable. They were having so much fun! I yearned to be a part of that. I went to my first game at Miller Park that year, and was in HEAVEN. The stadium, the atmosphere, being right there with the boys...I loved EVERYTHING about it! I went to a few more games that year, bought a 20 game season ticket package in 2008, and got two full season tickets in the 4th row behind home plate in 2009 and 2010. But I went to a lot of games by myself, so decided to move up to the one available seat in the front row this year. It's the best seat in the house!

Al--Do other women around your age think you're strange at all for being a fan, or do many of them also follow the team?

FRAmy--Other women my age think I'm crazy!! "You go to games by yourself?" they say. Why?? Because Miller Park is my escape! I go there and am completely engrossed in Brewers baseball. I can sit there and keep score and watch my boys. There's nothing I'd rather do. It's my Amy time.

Al--Normally, I'd ask you your favorite player is, but Ryan Braun is just about the choice for all. 2nd favorite?

FRAmy--My favorite player is NOT Ryan Braun - although I do love him for staying in Milwaukee. No, my favorite player is T-Plush!!! I call him the Brett Favre of baseball. His energy and fun-loving nature are infectious! I really think he plays a huge role in the team's success this year. Love him, love him, LOVE HIM!!! And Chris Narveson is my favorite pitcher. He came on the scene from virtual obscurity 2 years ago in a tough situation and pitched his you know what off! When he's on, he has great command, and this year, has a very sexy curve - my favorite pitch. And he's a cool cucumber. I like that.

Al--Finally, while I'm sure you're hoping for a Brewers' World Series title, what do you think will happen in the playoffs?

FRAmy--I don't know what will happen in the playoffs! What will be will be. If the Brewers are playing their best ball, they can beat anyone. So, I don't worry about who we'll play. I just take it one game at a time, and try to enjoy every moment of this magical season!!!

Al--That's almost exactly how I feel! Amy, thank you for your time, and enjoy the playoffs from the best seat in the house!

Don't forget to check out Amy on her Twitter account and her Facebook page. Tell her Al sent you, and please, don't embarrass me.

These are the good old days. Some folks are just too busy wishing the streets were paved with gold to enjoy the good times.

Whatever strikes me as interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park, you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic. If you are interested in sausage race results, walk up music, or professional wrestling, you may wish to click elsewhere.

I'm happy to pay taxes to help the helpless. I don't like paying taxes to help the clueless. Look at the Occupy movement...I'm forced to pay taxes to help those whose plight I delight in.--Dennis Miller

If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, and your life will be brief.--President Trump

Never have lives less lived been more chronicled.--Dennis Miller

I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.--Mad Dog Mattis

I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.--Thomas Sowell

Ramblings makes me want to poke my eyes out with a sharp stick.--Marxist sympathizer (one of Ramblings' proudest moments)
