Brew Crew Bracketology 2015

As the NCAA Basketball Tournament gets underway, we’re all feeling a little bit of that March Madness.

And, although UW-Madison is competing again this year, the particular “March Madness” I’m referring to in this case is baseball related.

We’re now less than three weeks from Brewers Baseball returning to Milwaukee and the madness has hit full tilt. We’re ready for the Boys of Summer to return from Arizona and bring back some more of that warmer weather that we got a taste of earlier this week. We’re ready for America’s Pastime done the Wisconsin way, with tailgating, Sausage Races and Bernie’s slides.

How will we cope the next few weeks? Well, we’ve got a few more Spring Training games that we can watch and listen to and in addition to that, there’s that other March Madness that I alluded to, an entertaining diversion that makes that time until Opening Day go by quicker.

Like most of America, we’re sure you found time to fill out a bracket. That’s why we asked some of the Crew to do the same.

A few of the participants, like Brewers reliever Rob Wooten, who is a diehard fan of the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and a former Tar Heel himself, really get into it.

Wooten lives just south of Chapel Hill, N.C., and attends as many as 10 Tar Heels home basketball games per season before heading to Spring Training.

Wooten holds up his bracket for last year’s tournament. He lives just south of Chapel Hill, N.C., and attends as Tar Heels home basketball games per season as he can before heading to Spring Training.

You can tell that both Rob and Corey Knebel, who played for the University of Texas, picked with their hearts while Matt Clark, a former LSU Tiger, picked with his head.

Others, like Brewers pitchers Kyle Lohse, really don’t follow basketball all that closely, but find it is still fun to participate in the bracket challenge.

But that’s the thing with March Madness– the tourney can be so unpredictable that a basketball fanatic has just as much of a chance as a coin-flipper.

Follow along with Brew Crew Bracketology below and see how their picks “net” out.

Will Smith Poses as “Bill Schmidt,” Goes Undercover at Brewers on Deck

Somehow, in the midst of all the fun and excitement at Brewers On Deck, Brewers reliever Will Smith (not the actor) was able to go undercover, posing as a reporter for fake news channel WILL-13 (we picked Lancaster, Wisconsin because we wanted a town that started with an “L”).

We outfitted him with a jacket, credentials and a microphone and sent him out into the crowd with a videographer to interview some unsuspecting fans.

And it was awesome:

There was so much great material it was hard to pair it all down. There were also a lot of outtakes, including some interviews with his teammates, which we felt merited their own separate video:

“I had a really good time doing it,” Will told me. “It was a fun experience playing around with the fans.”

Did Will trick you? Let us know in the comments below!

Brewers On Deck Wrap-Up

Thank you to the nearly 12,000 fans who streamed through the doors of the Wisconsin Center on Sunday for Brewers On Deck!

From autographs, photographs and interviews to game shows, merchandise and kids activities there was something for everyone and so much going on it was almost dizzying at times.

For me personally, it was a ton of fun working over at the Social Media Stage. I asked you to stop by, check it out and say hello and you did! We had some great crowds and I enjoyed meeting a lot of my Twitter buddies in person.

We’ve put some highlights from that stage up on brewers.com/ondeck.

There, you’ll find:

Photobombs from Carlos Gomez and Gerardo Parra:

Clips from “Heads Up” with Mike Fiers and Jimmy Nelson*:

*Sorry, guys, we had trouble with the video files from Rob Wooten & Tyler Thornburg‘s games.

The @TwitterlessSchafer Instagram Q&A with Logan Schafer:

Here is @twitterlessschafer's Instagram Q&A from #BrewersOnDeck! "Why no Twitter?"-@JulesK3

#MattChat60 with Matt Clark:

and Jim Henderson’s interview of new Brewers pitcher Corey Knebel:

In addition to those activities, we also had pitchers Jeremy Jeffress and Michael Blazek stop by for some social fun and games. There was Twitter Trivia, :15 of Favorites and Selfies in Seconds:

The Social Media Stage sure kept us busy, but we did find time to cover the rest of the event.

Here are some highlights that we posted on social media during the day:

Fun and Games in Store at the Social Media Stage at #BrewersOnDeck

If you’re like me, you’re getting super pumped up for Brewers On Deck on Sunday. For one day, we can all pretend it is 70 degrees and sunny when the boys of summer return to town.

The schedule for this year’s event in jam-packed with autograph & photo sessions, game shows, interviews, kids clinics and so much more.

I’m really excited to tell you about one new addition in particular. This year,  we’ve added some programming to the Social Media Stage. On the half hour (10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm and 4:30pm), there will be all sorts of fun and games taking place. We’re talking selfies, photobombs, trivia, player visits and more. I don’t want to disclose too much, but I do need your help with two things:

1) We’ll be hosting an Instagram Q&A with  Brewers outfielder Logan Schafer!

Logan’s teammates jokingly tweeted about him using the hashtag #TwitterlessSchafer last season when it seemed he was one of the only guys on the team not to be on that social network. But that’s okay, not everyone has to be on every social site, right?

Something you might not know about Logan…he really enjoys photography! So instead of Twitter, Logan  joined Instagram last season… choosing the ironic handle of @TwitterlessSchafer.

At the event, live on stage, Logan will be answering questions that fans submit in advance via Instagram. We’ll be videotaping his responses and posting them when he’s through.

To submit your question to Logan, click here:

2) We’ll also be hosting a Twitter Q&A with Brewers  infielder Matt Clark!

Matt is active on both Twitter and Instagram, so make sure you’re following him on Twitter @MattClark60 and on Instagram at @MattTC60.

Submit your questions via Twitter using the hashtag#MattChat60.

At the event,on stage, Matt will be answering questions that fans had submitted in advance via Twitter and we’ll be posting his responses live from @Brewers.

Please get your questions in for both of these guys by 5pm on Saturday. That’s when we’ll be choosing our favorites to ask during Brewers On Deck.

I’ll be manning the Social Media Stage on Sunday (and probably running around all over the place, too), so please stop by to say hello and stick around for the fun and games!

ALSO! Don’t forget to Tweet and/or Instagram your photos from the event using #BrewersOnDeck for your chance to win great prizes!

See you Sunday!
