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: Clutch Crew Origin Story
How the Milwaukee @Bucks created the NBA's rowdiest fan section https://t.co/HZNg5REveq— For The Win (@ForTheWin) February 22, 2018
This is a great read on the loudest occupants of the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the Clutch Crew. Unaware of the actual origins of the fan section, I was surprised to find out that Andrew Bogut was the one who funded the ticket costs for the inaugural Crew, then known as Squad 6. Bogut wanted the BMO to have a little slice of what he experienced with how fans overseas treated the game like a two and a half hour party and experience.
I was always curious how many people make up the Clutch Crew and was equally surprised to learn that there are 600 members who rotate games. There are 100 seats available for each game and I think they should at least double that number to 200. The Clutch Crew is certainly heard, but they are a small enough group to get drowned out.
Hopefully the new arena creates more openings for some of the most rabid fans to attend games nightly. The new arena’s less-segmented section seating would make it easier for the team to increase the Crew’s allotment. As the Bucks continue to be top-ten in merchandise sales and continue to be a wholly likable unit, the Clutch Crews numbers will only increase.
Tonight’s (off)topic: Lucid Dreams
I had the most wild lucid dream last night. I had an apartment in New York City overlooking a body of water, thought to myself, this is very unrealistic, so I decided to jump off my balcony because I was convinced I could fly. I was horribly mistaken and kept thinking, wait this is a dream why can’t I fly like I know I should be able to? I landed in the water and sunk to the bottom despite me knowing I could and should be swimming. I felt weighed down for no reason.
Once I realized I was about to drown, I awoke in a panic, laying on my stomach, and feeling a weight on my back. Turns out my cat decided to sleep on my back and I am convinced his decision to do so weighed me down from flying in my dream. Any one have any really strong or lucid dreams?
