World Series champs celebrate Jackie Robinson Day with popcorn and sodas at a private showing of '42' at Wauwatosa's neighborhood cinema.
The World Series Champion San Francisco Giants were looking for a little inspiration coming in to a series with the Milwaukee Brewers. So, on Monday night, Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball, but with no game to play, they decided to go to the movies. Most of the Giants' roster and a couple of coaches rolled up in a bus Monday night to the Rosebud Cinema, 6823 W. North Ave. in Wauwatosa, to watch "42," the story of how Robinson broke the color line in baseball. "It was last minute," said Rosebud general manager David Gigl. "I talked to their travel agent, and their bus pulled up. "We had to coordinate some cones and move some cars. They walked in less than 25 feet from the front door." There was actually a little more planning …

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 Cardinal 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. How do you think the Brewers will do this …

Brewers all-star purchased four Pamela Anderson paintings last year to decorate his California digs, and stopped by to say hello Saturday while she worked at the Pfister.
A Wauwatosa artist whose work has been gaining attention for a couple of years now has one really big-league admirer – Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun. Last year, Braun bought four large-format paintings from Anderson to decorate his California home.

She also paints at the Plaid Tuba art studio in Milwaukee's Third Ward. Anderson …

Updated Tuesday: Today's TMJ4 says between tickets and the silent auction, 8-twelve's fundraiser raised more than $60,000 for the families of the who died in the Azana spa shooting. ______________________ A packed house at 8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill in Brookfield Monday night raised $20,000 just in tickets — plus more from rare finds in a silent auction, such as Aaron Rodgers game-worn playoff cleats. And it was all primarily for eight people, namely the children of three mothers slain in the Oct. 21 tragedy at Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield. Photos of the three women who worked at the spa reminded the 200 who paid $100 a piece to get in just why they were supporting the cause. Candles flickered near the photos and remembrances of Zina …
