Brew Hoop Night Shift: August 17th, 2018

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:

The Milwaukee Bucks and Fox Sports Wisconsin made some changes to their broadcasting roster today. We found out Monday that former-sideline reporter, Telly Hughes, was let go from that role.

Now we know Hughes’ replacement will be former University of Louisville volleyball standout, Katie George. George had been at the Louisville Fox station affiliate, WDRB, for nearly two years before making the move from bourbon to beer country.

The last bit of broadcasting nugget is that Fox Sports national broadcaster, Gus Johnson, will no longer sub-in for Jim Paschke when the Bucks take on a premier opponent, or the New York Knicks. Jon McGlocklin will also no longer be filling in for Marques Johnson, as it looks like that role will now be filled by Steve Novak.

New arena, new coach, and now a new(ish) broadcasting team.

Tonight’s (off) topic: Bourbon

In honor of our new sideline reporter I thought we could talk bourbon. I have not purposefully had any bourbon since the night of February 28, 2014 and the morning of March 1, 2014 — Wild Turkey 101 always wins. Do we have any bourbon connoisseurs in the crowd tonight? I have heard that bourbon tastings at distilleries are a blast, but I just do not have the stomach for that like I do for brewery tastings.

Brew Hoop has partnered up with BreakingT to design and distribute licensed moment-driven shirts as they happen. Check out this link for the latest items!

As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
