I'm In The Brewers' "Happy" Video--I Think
...at least, I think my right hand is.
It was Opening Day, and my job obligations were over at Miller Park. I called in a report as the gates opened for the first time this season, then headed to my usual pre-game perch: the bar behind home plate on the Club Level. I was savoring the first freshly tapped beer of the 2014 campaign when a camera crew showed up and rolled video on one of the bartenders who flashed a few brief, impromptu dance steps as he was egged on by patrons and cohorts.
That bartender plus most of the Brewers organization and a good chunk of the current roster are in the "Happy" video the team released Wednesday. And, if you get to the 2:36 mark where my friend is busting his moves, you might see me on the left edge of the screen.
Or, what might be my right hand. I think. That's where I was sitting, anyway, chatting with a fan and her dad. Then again, I'm not good at this stuff. I originally thought it I saw Greg Matzek, too, when it turns out being Joe Block. Cut me some slack--I was watching on my cell phone screen.
See who you recognize--it's really well done--and try to spot my hand at the appointed moment. Then again, it might not be mine.
It's not holding a beer.
