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: Rally Towels & Shirts

Now that is a unique rally towel.
The San Jose Sharks gave these away to everyone in attendance for the third game of what would eventually be a Sharks series sweep against the Anaheim Ducks in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoff. At the time of Game 3 the Sharks were up 2-0 in the series, but once these incredible towels hit the chair backs there was no need to play any more games, the series had been won.
With the Bucks playoff home opener tomorrow night I am curious as to what they will go with for the chair back giveaway. Last year was the black shirt with the white, zoomed in deer snout, eyes, and ears to go along with the “Fear the Deer” playoff mantra.
Having attended AHL Playoff games before and getting my hands on rally towels I must say that I think I prefer the rally towel to the rally shirt. It’s more fun to wave that cloth than it is to throw a shirt over whatever I am already wearing to the game. However, I do love seeing the classic “courtside fan wearing a rally shirt over a button-up” look that dominates the NBA Playoffs.
Tonight’s (off) topic: Loofah Use
Do y’all use loofahs? I recently got a new, way-softer-than-I’m-use-to loofah and it is one hundred percent the greatest part of my shower. I originally had been going with those loofahs that were a little coarser, almost rubbery, but decided to switch it up and boy am I glad that I did.
