Brew Hoop Night Shift: February 16th, 2018

The celebrity game and off the beaten path music venues

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.

Tonight’s (on)topic: Celebrity Game

All-Star Weekend is finally here, and it kicked off tonight with the Celebrity All Star game tonight. I’ve long been a large proponent of this contest, and Milwaukee fans have had a rooting interest the last two years with Marc Lasry participating. There are correct answers to the two most important questions regarding this game.

  1. Who is the worst celebrity participant ever? Answer: Kevin Hart, the odious, diminutive funny guy who is a ball hog and attention whore that ruins every game he’s ever been in. He somehow got the MVP a couple years ago despite posting an inefficient game for the records books while Arne Duncan did his last name proud with a ruthless efficiency in the halfcourt.
  2. Who is the best participant ever? Answer: Chris Tucker, the wayward star mostly known for Rush Hour hasn’t been a player in this for a few years, but he was a staple for some time. Sporting the worst shot release I’ve ever seen, this dude had a hair trigger despite not being able to hit the broad side of the basket. It’s glorious.

Do you even care about this game or has its novelty worn off?

Tonight’s (off)topic: Music Venues

Lately I’ve been dabbling in the dredge of the Facebook event section looking for bizarre, obscure music shows across the city that I live in. Yesterday I found one with a local band playing at a batting cage that moonlights as a BYOB concert venue. It was awesome. Where’s the weirdest place you’ve ever seen a concert?

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