Guido, the Klement's Italian Racing Sausage costume and a Milwaukee Brewers mascot, had made an appearance in Cedarburg bars before the pair were caught.
Two Ozaukee County residents will face fines in connection with the theft of a sausage costume that is also a Brewers mascot. Kristin Moze, 32 of Cedarburg, and Timothy Forrer, 26 of Mequon — who are also brother and sister — were charged with disorderly conduct and were fined $429 for the theft of Guido, the Klement's Italian Racing Sausage costume, that took place in February, JSOnline.com reports. The two will also be responsible for paying for cleaning fees, repairs and a missing duffel bag. According to the website, Ozaukee County's News Graphic reported that Klement's had tracked down the suspects through a social media investigation. The sausage costume was seen barhopping in Cedarburg in mid-February, shortly after its theft, …

Opening Day for the Milwaukee Brewers is Monday, and fans are hoping they can return to the top of the National League Central Division — or at least beat the Chicago Cubs.
Milwaukee Brewers Opening Day is Monday, April 1 against the Colorado Rockies. The team was 83-79 last year, third in the NL Central Division. Fans’ expectations were recently raised after signing of free agent pitcher Kyle Lohse, a former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher who was 16-3 last year with a 2.86 ERA. Also key for Milwaukee’s hopes are the fortunes of Ryan Braun. The left fielder authored another incredible offensive season in 2012 (.319 batting average, 41 HR, 112 RBI, 30 SB) but is followed by a cloud of suspicion over the possible use of performance-enhancing drugs. USA Today reported that Braun is a top target of an investigation; Major League Baseball denied that report to Sports Illustrated in a separate article. How do you …

It's been a great run, but will a cleated shoe soon fall?
You can tell a Wisconsin sports fan by the change that's taken place over the last nine months. He smiles a lot. Refuses to change habits (or clothes). Hugs strangers. Reacts to fixing a leaky faucet by either a) giving himself a championship belt, or b) going into "Beast Mode." The last month has seen the bandwagon only pick up speed. The Brewers captured the division, the National League Division Series and Game 1 of the NL Championshp Series. The Packers won a Super Bowl in February, the sixth of an 11-game win streak that continued Sunday night. The Wisconsin Badgers football team is also unbeaten and a contender for the national title. And oh, yes, the Milwaukee Wave won their fifth league championship back in the spring and the …

Oak Creek editor Mark Schaaf was just a twinkle in his father's eye during the last Suds Series, but better late than never: He's attended every playoff game at Miller Park and sleeps next to a Gorman Thomas bobblehead. When Nyjer Morgan tweeted “I hope those crying birds injoy watching tha Crew in tha Playoffs!" on Sept. 7, few could have imagined just how wrong Morgan would turn out to be. Well, the spelling and grammatical errors were obvious. But more importantly, the Cardinals were an after-thought in the playoff race at that time. You know how it turned out: St. Louis would go on a tear, catch and pass the Atlanta Braves on the final day of the regular season, and upset perennial favorite Philadelphia in the National League Division …

Better Business Bureau warns that ticket scammers love the playoffs, too and provide advice to keep fans from getting burned.
Milwaukee Brewers fans beware! Scammers may be out selling fake playoff tickets. That the word from the Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin (BBB) President and CEO Randall Hoth, who warns that "sports fans can get burned by purchasing counterfeit tickets or paying in advance for tickets that never arrive." Reselling tickets has become a $10 billion a year business, including tickets bought and sold by professional brokers as well as those purchased and resold by speculators and season ticket holders. With the internet, the likelihood of being scammed rises dramatically as well. (Click here to see the Brewers playoff schedule.) The BBB offers the following advice for Milwaukee Brewers' fans seeking tickets:
