Editor’s Note: Thanks for understanding the brief break in Night Shifts, but we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming from here on forward.
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: Marketing hi-jinx
LIVE from Bucks Marketing Day!!— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) September 11, 2018
Ah the day when Bucks players put on wacky outfits, superhero costumes and sing gracefully in front of a delightfully on-brand blue background. It’s marketing day folks, which means Milwaukee is gearing up to get their promotional schedule out to the masses.
I, for one, always savor seeing what themes may be in store, particularly when they’ll have an entire new arena to play with. I’m a particular fan of the photoshops their team puts together for each theme that night, they’re always just crude enough to tickle my fancy.
I’m also predicting a Harry Potter tie-in with the new Fantastic Beasts movie releasing in theaters during the season. What sort of theme nights are you hoping for this year?
Tonight’s (off) topic: Fantasy Football
Anyone else play fantasy football and feel like their season is already down the tubes? Turns out taking Le’Veon Bell has already blown up in my face, my starting tight end is on season-ending IR and my wide receiver #2 remains out until October. My best-performing team member in week 1 was the Denver Broncos’ defense.
Feel free to commiserate alongside me about any woeful scoring weeks in the comments below.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
