Found June 22, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
The Milwaukee Brewers have fallen on hard times lately. Especially ever since slugger Ryan Braun hit the disabled list.The Brew Crew currently sit tied for last in the division with the lowly Chicago Cubs and the outlook for a winning future doesn't look so bright, either.So, this fan, who hasn't given up on team just yet, took it upon himself to try and help the franchise turn things around.

I'm sure this fan would like to think so at least.
