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: Minor League Uniforms
FIRST LOOK: 76ers G League team, @Sevens, wearing Spongebob uniforms for Nickelodeon Night tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/Vs1xeipkvb— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) January 2, 2018
These rule so much. I love when affiliate and minor league teams get unabashedly absurd with using the uniform as a marketing gimmick. Personally, I think the Spongebob uni is in the upper echelon when it comes to gimmick jerseys. Minor baseball is littered with affiliate teams that pull out all the stops for marketing ploys.
There are these Back to the Future jerseys:
These Jimmy Buffett ones are amazing and I should have got my Parrot-head dad one for Christmas:
And of course, so. Many. Star Wars.
Minor league baseball team, the Brooklyn Cyclones, have gone so far as to have annual Seinfeld nights that serve as pop-up Seinfeld conventions.
Any gimmick jerseys or themed-nights that you particularly remember or are even sick of?
Today’s (off)topic: Dream House Hunting
Revisit some of the most stunning homes we featured in the past year. https://t.co/x7NpQKdibT— Journal Sentinel (@journalsentinel) January 2, 2018
One of my favorite things is to go on realtor.com and find my dream houses in different cities throughout the United States. Half the time it ends up me just trying to find a house or apartment I could actually afford if I wanted to just pick up and move. I am an absolute sucker for cabin-style homes and have scoured central and northern Wisconsin for the absolute perfect cabin. Anyone else go on fantasy house hunting trips?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
