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: Giannis Antetokounmpo: Time Magazine Next Generation Leader
"Gonna make sure we put Milwaukee on the map..." #OwnTheFuture https://t.co/M3ZUFaVqHf— Dustin Godsey (@dgodz) October 13, 2017
It shouldn’t really come as a surprise that Giannis would be considered a leader for future generations. His families’ immigration into Greece was less than kosher and Giannis has capitalized on his incredible talents to pave the way for his family to live more comfortably than they would if he and his brothers were still swindling tourists.
Antetokounmpo’s commitment to helping those that find themselves in a situation that he is all to familiar with makes it incredibly easy to root for him as a human. With Greece being a hot spot for African refugees and the global political climate being what it is, this feels like the first of what will be more spotlights shone on Milwaukee’s favorite Greek son.
Today’s (off)topic: Halloween Decorations
One of the higher-ups at work was telling us that he purchased a 12 foot inflatable killer clown to put up in his front yard and scare his neighborhood kids. I’ve seen the pictures and it is scarier looking than your average front yard inflatable.
I loved when houses would build their own “Haunted Houses” in their driveways (basically just a tailgating pop-up tent with black sheets on the sides) and have strobe lights going inside and unsettling music to accompany.
My parents’ decorative limits were met with gourds and crudely painted not so funny plywood cutout folk art. Any houses spring to your memory as being especially well done, decoration wise, or is that you?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
