CEDARBURG - Guido, the Brewers' Italian racing sausage, was returned Wednesday night after reportedly being taken on Feb. 16. But it looks like that isn't the end of the story.

Ted Berg, a USA Today reporter, was sent a letter Thursday morning from the suspected kidnappers.

"Sorry I'm such a sauced weenie," said the letter. "You probably think I'm the wurst. I started feeling the heat as the police began to ketchup by connecting the links. I know it was a greasy move so here I am. Donate the mustard and drink the beer. Take me back to the Land of the Brew… Much Love, ur Cedarburg Crew."

Berg also received a video of Guido (doing the Harlem Shake).

You can watch Guido talk about his ordeal on Live at Daybreak Friday morning.
