Ryan Braun's Groupies Aren't Afraid To Share Their Phone Numbers

In news I wish I'd seen and passed on to Weekend Editor Chris Watkins so that he would've been able to get up when it was still timely, the Astros got crushed by the Brewers on Friday night. Also getting crushed: the cell phone voicemail of a certain Milwaukee resident who wound up on TV with her phone number besides a marriage proposal for Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun.

Nothing could possibly go wrong with putting a personal phone number on a sign, right? I mean, at most a few of us lonely guys at the game might write it down and give her a call. Right?

Or, Fox Sports Wisconsin runs out of material from Braun's press conference and his highlights from earlier in the game and decides to air some crowd shots during the latter stages of the blowout affair, showing the lady, her sign, and contact information to all of Greater Milwaukee (and now the Internet).

She got attention all right.

The rest of the half-inning was pure raw comedy, with Braun's would-be lady wondering why her phone was ringing off the hook with calls and texts and why field reporter Telly Hughes would possibly want to interview her.

Eesh. Braun later actually tried to call her, only to get a full mail box. I guess there are some things you shouldn't put on a poster after all. At least when the team you pull for is selling lots of tickets and has a chance to win the division this year.

So yes, someone could definitely get away with this at an Astros game.
