Every evening at 8:00pm (which ever time zone Kyle is feeling), 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 Topic: Cultural Holidays
Today is St. Patrick’s Day, which would normally be the time everyone gets drunk off green beer and Jameson. With dat Rona causing the bars to shutdown, it’s a bit of a different celebration. In the past it would serve as a fun drinking day to prepare me for my birthday (tomorrow, just an FYI) but now it’s not that big of a deal for me. So what about the rest of you, is St. Patrick’s Day (and other cultural holidays) just an excuse to get drunk, or do you have a meaningful celebration behind it?
