Bally Sports Needs to Stop Trying to Make ‘On Base Jace’ Happen
Bally Sports Wisconsin is the new kid on the block. They have a pretty good Twitter account even if they don’t respond to your complaints. Reason being is they post a ton of highlights throughout the game. This makes it very easy to catch up on what happened if you missed the Brewers or Bucks. That said, they have a current thing that irks me and makes me cringe more than most things I see on Twitter. It’s their nickname for Jace Peterson of ‘On-base Jace.’ It stinks. It’s too early, and it’s not like this dude is some OBP machine. I also think they’re trying to copy a popular Brewers’ Twitter user who came up with his own version that is much better.
Chant it with us, @Brewers fans.
ON 👏 BASE 👏 JACE 👏

The real nickname or thing for Peterson on the interwebs is the ‘Summer of Jace’ coined by Curt Hogg. That is the one that we should all be using. The engagement numbers on that tweet are pretty good, so, maybe this is just a weird thing that I don’t like? That’s always the worst when you realize you might be the asshole here. That’s okay. I’ll stick to it and we’ll see who ends up right whenever this nickname ends.
