Edgewater politics at Lambeau


According to Kevin Bargnes, managing editor of the Badger Herald, even non-Packers fans might be interested in certain events taking place at Lambeau Field today. It had nothing to do with the 26-0 rout of the Lions. In fact, the absolutely worthless spectacle probably made the activity in the Lambeau luxury boxes much more profitable for Hammes Co, the company that plans to invest over $100 million to renovate the Edgewater Hotel.

On Sunday, Hammes will take a group of Greek leaders up to their luxury box at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

The bus leaves the Edgewater at 7:30 a.m. for the noon game between the Packers and the Detroit Lions. The presentation? Why, an overview of the redevelopment of the Edgewater Hotel, of course!

“Refreshments” will be served “throughout the game,” so Hammes can get some frat boys good and drunk before sliding the city’s largest project in 15 years down their throats.

Genius. Without making any of the character assumptions that usually accompany analysis of frat boys, it is clear that they would be a good group for a business to target. First off, frats are generally a more business-friendly constituency. Politically they tend to be more conservative and they typically have a high concentration of business majors.

What’s most amusing about the post is the two very long, hostile comments in response – clearly written by someone on the defensive.

Good job Kevin. It’s nice to see self-criticism in the Greek community.
