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: WESC Progress
It’s crazy to think that we are inside 12 months from the new arena opening. The first steel pillar went up on November 7th, 2016 and the exo-skeleton has come along nicely since. It is very encouraging that the exterior work will be darn near complete by Thanksgiving. Kudos to the union trade workers and all the office staff that have been busting their humps to get this arena project to where it is today.
The video board on the parking garage started illuminating the corner of McKinley and 6th Street a few days ago and has primarily shown ticket and game advertisements.

I really cannot wait for this project to be complete. Other than construction traffic clearing up, it is going to be such a great addition to downtown and really expand the entertainment development footprint.
Today’s (off)topic: Superstitions
I am not the most superstitious guy. Playing baseball through high school I had some teammates that always had to do things within a structured routine. In day-to-day life I will walk under ladders with glee and pick up pennies regardless if the heads side is up showing or not.
As a sports fan I will silently note to myself how my favorite team is doing when I wear a certain article of team branded clothing. The Bucks are currently 0-2 when I go to a game wearing either of the two t-shirts I bought together in one specific Fanatics order. Those shirts will be shelved for the time being.
Any sporting, or day-to-day life, superstitions that you follow?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
