The Ryan Braun 'Real Mensch' Club
mensch or mensh (mnsh)
n. pl. mensch·es or mensch·en (mnshn) Informal
A person having admirable characteristics, such as fortitude and firmness of purpose.
After Brauny's first Major League grand slam... a game winner at that... and with the definition of 'Mensch' at the front of your mind, I propose a new club to bring pride back to the small group of Brewers players who deserve our support and recognition: The Ryan Braun "Real Mensch" Club.
First member: Ryan Braun
1) 10th innning grand slam with 2 outs is the clutch performance his team needed to keep their post season hopes alive.
2) After signing a large contract, immediately praised the organization and subtly called out some of his less gracious teammates (Yes Prince, I think he meant you).
3) Has not shyed away from the role of team leader and has been fearless in the face of media-types.
4) .286 AVG/ 36 HR/ 104 RBI/ 14 SB
I open the floor to support of this new club and further nominations.
