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: WESC Update
The thing that jumps out the most from the latest picture updates of the new arena? All that natural light. My goodness you could a get a tan from all that concentrated sunlight.
One of the most striking upgrades from the Bradley Center is the ability to still somewhat be able to follow the action on the court, or at the very least be aware of what is happening. The arena concourse is the epitome of an open concept.
The arena is about four months away and as we all want to hit the fast forward button on this season because it feels like we already know the conclusion, the arena makes that button pushing finger all the bit more itchy.
Tonight’s (off) topic: First Job
My first job was doing landscaping with my dad over the summers in high school. He was a teacher so to make extra money over the summer he had a little landscaping business going. I would mainly take care of the lawn mowing since I moved faster than him, while he did a lot of edging, planting, etc.
The two things that a majority of people agree are terrible about landscaping is weeding and mulching. Fortunately, I loved both of those things. There was something satisfying about making a garden or flower bed weed free, and then spreading that mulch. I got paid $10 an hour which basically shook out to $10 per lawn.
What were your first jobs and what kind of moolah were you making?
