A very dedicated Brewers fan wore a life-size Hank the Ballpark Pup hat to make us all jealous

You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't love Hank the Ballpark Pup, the dog who became the unofficial mascot of the Brewers after he wandered into the team's Spring Training facility back in 2014. After all, the internet went mad earlier this year when people just thought he'd been replaced by a different dog. He inspires strong feelings in people.

Very strong feelings.


Before you start, conspiracy theorists, that's obviously not the real Hank. But a Brewers fan in the stands at Great American Ball Park on Friday night wore a life-size Hank hat that is likely as close as you can get to wearing the actual dog on your head. Hank fans everywhere -- and they are everywhere -- are definitely super jealous right now.


Alas, the Brewers dropped the game, 5-4, to the Reds. If only the real Hank had been there to take an at-bat.
