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: Frank “The Blog Father” Madden’s Birthday!
In honor of Frank’s birthday, we’re not using coasters, and we’re feeding the pugs at the table. It’s been over a year since our founding father has stepped away from the site, and he is still greatly missed. Tonight, we want to highlight and share our favorite Frank Madden memories. Share your favorite article he’s written, your favorite podcast moment, your favorite tweet of his, etc. Also, feel free to celebrate the recent birth of his sweet baby girl, Matilda. Cheers, Frank!
(Yes, we really included this three year old tweet. You’re welcome.)
Tonight’s (off)topic: Battle of the Bagels
I make a visit to East Pointe Marketplace at least once a week for some delicious grub. My favorite spot to grab a bite is Einstein Bagels (which now has Caribou Coffee). Just down the street, a bagel rival: Panera Bread. Which bagels are softer and taste more fresh? Are the customer service experiences different between the store stores? In the battle of the best tasting bagels, who comes out on top for you?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
