My friend Mike pointed out that she looks like the late Chris Farley in the SNL Gap Girls skit. Home Run Mike!
"Robin" is the young lady who brought a sign to Miller Park Friday night demanding, "Marry me, Ryan." It came complete with her real cell phone number, and caught the all-seeing eyes of FS Wisconsin crew members, who put Robin on the air during the Brewers' blowout win over the Astros. Hilarity ensued as fans from Waukesha to Wauwatosa entertained themselves by flooding her voicemail inbox.
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.
'It seemed like a good idea," she said in the ensuing interview.
Gutsy move, and it worked. Braun called after the game and got Robin's voice mail, which was unfortunately full.
"I guess it wasn't meant to be," Braun said with a smile.
