This past weekend I watched the Wisconsin game at Busby's in Brentwood, right by the UCLA campus. It's the official LA Badger Alumni bar in the Los Angeles. This was the second week in a row that I have gone there for the games. I won't comment on the fact that the past two weekends the Badgers have lost, I can only guarantee that no one at that bar was cheering louder than I.
On a much better note, while I was there I had the pleasure of running into a few other former Wisconsin players, one of which has written a book about his playing days early in Barry Alvarez's tenure as head coach. Chris Kennedy was a walk-on on the 1994 Rose Bowl team.
I picked up a copy of his book, "No Bed of Roses", and, while I have not read it cover to cover yet, thumbing through it it looks pretty good. I don't sell out too often and peddle wares on this blog, but I know that a lot of Badger fans read this thing, and if you want a real 'insider' look on what your favorite team is all about, this is probably as real as its going to get.
