Brew Hoop Graveyard Shift: October 11th, 2017

New, comments

[Ouija board moves on its own]

Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.

Today’s (on)topic: Bad Jerseys

Look at these monstrosities. Really soak it in that a team will wear these in public on purpose.

SB Nation took a dive into the uh, unique, jerseys of the 1990s NBA. Of course the alternate Buck jerseys with the full deer head and antlers make an appearance in that list, but those are nice! I’m also a huge fan of the Vancouver Grizzlies jerseys.

Which jersey makes you go, “oh god that’s so bad,” but not in the way that the jersey is so bad that it is actually good? I’ll submit the green alternate Dallas Mavericks jersey for consideration.

Today’s (off)topic: The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror

My favorite ToH episode is where Homer sells his soul to the devil (portrayed as Ned Flanders) for a doughnut. Homer ends up on trial and part of the “jury from hell” is the 1976 Philadelphia Flyers starting lineup. The inclusion of the Broad Street Bullies is so funny to me even though it has no reason to be. The parody of The Shining is also up there, or as Groundskeeper Willie puts it, the shinning (“Do you want to get sued?”). Which Treehouse of Horror moment has stuck with you throughout Simpsons history?


As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
