    Nice one Shaggy I like it!

    Good timing with the Bucks coming off an impressive win at Houston last night, despite FHOF Harden's 42 point performance! That guy just continues to be incredible, but the Bucks are rolling and with MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, they have not only surprised a few people, but are legit contenders for the NBA Title this year.

    You up for adding a new game thread for each game or is there not a lot of members willing to chat about the game during game time?

    I admit I'm one of those guys who checks the standings once a week or so just to see how they are doing and you can color me impressed. I'm not basketball fan at all and I can't name a single Bucks player ( I know they have that Giannis guy but I still can't name him) I paid a little more attention when Allen, Baker and Cassell were around and before that Buckner, Moncrief, Bridgeman and Johnson but I never really watched them.

    I'm happy for the real Bucks fans though. They have suffered through a lot and they've earned it. Best record in the NBA (percentage wise anyway) half way through the season and they have been near the top all season. I'm not going to be trading the pigskin for the roundball anytime soon but if they make the finals i just might have to start watching a bit more.

    It would make a nice filler for once between OTAs and training camp. Besides the annual Brewers fade.

    I will admit to not being a very big Brewer or Bucks fan over the last 10+ years. Like you, only keeping an occasional eye on them. I started getting back into both teams, when they started fielding winners. So yes, I am a fair weather fan.

    Have to say, both teams are enjoyable to watch, both have really likable Managers/coaches and the product they are putting out there is first class.

    Just watch the next Bucks game and once you see Giannis, you will understand why he nicknamed "The Greek Freak"....the kid is amazing and just turned 24!

    Interesting thing I just thought of, my desire to watch both teams has swung in the last 2 years, which have been down years for the Packers..... hmmmmmm

    They faded then made a run at the end to get back into it.

    They were just tweaking things midseason....to make their final run to the 7th game of the NL Championship Series. ;)

    Now I would say what the Cubs did at the end was totally fading. :)

    The Bucks superfans down in Milwaukee love to go after The Fan radio station and throw a tantrum about how the packers get too much coverage. They want no less than 2 hours of a 4 hour show dedicated to them. If they find out this section exists they will demand equal coverage here as well!!!

    Tonight's game proved how tough it is to be the top dog in the league and win on the road. All the teams and their fans are extra geared up and wanting to prove something by knocking you off. Red hot shooting by a not so good Wizards team, no Giannis and poor shooting for the Bucks=Loss.

    Remember Lew Alcindor? Bob Dandridge? John McLocklin? Lucious Allen? Oscar Robertson?

    Yeah...me neither. So damned long ago. Anyway...I was a BIG fan in the 70's, then, travelling was acceptable and encouraged.

    Nice Shaggy. I just realized you already have Bucks, Brewers and Badgers threads. Nicely done.
