Restaurant Ends Ties with Suspended Slugger 9/6/13
MILWAUKEE - A restaurant group is ending its ties with suspended Brewers slugger Ryan Braun, who is barred for the rest of the season for use of performance enhancing drugs. The owners of the 8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield are changing its name. "Eight" is Braun's jersey number, while "twelve" refers to the number worn by quarterback Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay Packers.
Major League Baseball suspended Braun for the rest of the season in July for doping. Braun and Rodgers were friends and business associates. But Rodgers said during training camp he felt duped by Braun's previously strong denial of doping accusations.
