As it happens, the guy who writes our newsletters is originally from Illinois. And boy, is he steamed about how good Wisconsin sports have gotten in the recent decades!

The Pack is Back: How often does a team enjoy nearly 30 years of back-to-back Hall of Fame-caliber quarterbacks? This year, the Packers surprised a lot of doubters with a stellar 13-3 regular season record and an exciting playoff victory.

Bucky Rules: Sure, the Rose Bowl was a let-down, but Badger football has been strong ever since the Alvarez era. Throw in a few Final Four basketball appearances – and an NCAA runner-up finish for women’s volleyball this year – and you’ve really got something!

Bango Rising: Not since Kareem left the city by the lake to play for a team named for lakes has Milwaukee enjoyed such pro basketball success. With the best record in the league, it’s “championship or bust” in 2020 for Giannis and the Bucks.

Major League Success: Don’t forget the Brew Crew, who last year earned their second-straight playoff appearance. With Whitefish Bay’s finest at the helm and the 2019 MVP leading the way, the future looks bright.

The World Comes to Kohler: For the golfers in the crowd, the Ryder Cup visits the shores of Lake Michigan in September – with the U.S. team led by Wisconsin’s very own Steve Stricker (who happens to be a University of Illinois grad, just sayin’).

What a time to be a fan of Wisconsin sports – even if you’re from Illinois!
