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: Naming Rights
DON'T MISS: The Milwaukee Bucks arena naming rights will go to a local company with a national presence. https://t.co/pW8oEs6fhx— Journal Sentinel (@journalsentinel) April 23, 2018
We are less than six months away from the WESC opening its doors and about a few days away from no longer referring to the new arena as the WESC.
The fact that the article hinted at Northwestern Mutual makes me believe that the naming right will in fact go to Northwestern Mutual. Which is a shame because I would have loved for MillerCoors to be the highest bidder so we could call the new place the “Miller Madhouse.”
I’m still holding out hope that Pabst is the winner because I really want to dub the new digs as the “Pabst Palace.”
Any guesses as to which corporation will have its name in lights?
Tonight’s (off) topic:
I posted an underwhelming 37/50 which is good for just 74% and a C letter grade. I am sure that many of you can top that score, so what did y’all get?
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
