First of all, imagine living to be 97-years-old. Then imagine being a Brewers fan all those years. The team didn’t even become the Brewers until 1970 when the Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin. In other words, being that old and having only watched your team in one World Series sucks. There have only been four playoff appearances. Two in the 20th Century & then 2008, 2011. Now imagine thinking someone stole your remote. Time to call 9-1-1!

Via WestAllisNOW.com:

A 97-year-old man who wanted to watch a Milwaukee Brewers game called 911 to report someone had stolen his remote control.

According to the Greenfield police report:

The man called 911 to report someone had stolen his remote control from his residence in the 9300 block of West Howard Avenue prior to 8 p.m. Sept. 26.

The remote control was found after police responded, so the man was able to watch the Brewers game.

There are days when this job puts a smile on our faces. Imagine the cop walking in, asking what the problem is and old Harry explaining he can’t switch it from I Love Lucy to the Brew Crew game.

Officer Lipkovitz starts nosing through cushions with his police-issue flashlight.

“Damn, Harry, you haven’t cleaned this couch in a few years. Haven’t seen this Pabst logo in 20 years, Harry,” Lipkovitz says.

Few more minutes of digging through Journal Sentinel’s shoved into the couch and the officer finds the eight-button remote to the RCA. All is well and Harry gets to see his boys play in the NLDS.

(Kinda rooting for Harry here. Would really suck if God takes him in the 5th inning of Game 7 of the World Series.)
