And you're telling me this franchise doesn't need a new GM who can get the fans excited again???? I might have to do some campaigning in Wisconsin soon. By the way, thanks to the folks at The Bucky Channel for pledging their support. I have now cornered the market on Bucks blogs. I'd also like to thank the Bucks CFO for sending the exact same automated response to every fan who e-mails the team asking the club to consider my candidacy. It's that personal touch that makes being a Bucks fan so special right now.
I sent him an email this morning asking him if he would be able to mention something about it PRIOR to it occurring in addition to writing up something after it actually occurs.
Looks like he was kind enough to oblige.
Bill Simmons FTW!
The assist goes to fam for getting Simmons and I in touch, something no one at ESPN seemed able to do
In other news, I was finally able to secure the appropriate permissions and facilities that I needed for prior to the game at Fitzgibbons so we will not after all need to use my pre-existing arrangements at VI Degrees.
Fitz has even increased his original incentive for a Bucks victory over the Celtics. He told me that if the Bucks win, he will be giving away free Guinness and free shots of Irish whiskey for the entire length of the WSSP Farmer's Insurance Basketball Post Game Show
Granted, the Bucks will probably get smoked. But on the off chance that the Bucks somehow pull out a victory, maybe out of some sense of pride on the night of our Grocery Bag Revolt, we will all be able to get absolutely smashed after the game for free.
Yet another reason why more people should join us for this.
So be at Fitzgibbons by 6:20pm Saturday
There will be a short meeting at 6:35pm to go over some of the final details that will not be revealed until then and then we will proceed over to the Bradley Center (hopefully on the free shuttle bus, which you can also take back to Fitzgibbons after the game from the BC) about 10-15 minutes later
I really don't want people drinking before/during the game because sobriety is going to be essential to do something like this appropriately without any foolishness that could sink the whole thing, but I told Fitz that I'd revise that slightly and I would suggest that people have ONE (and only one) drink while at Fitzgibbons before the game if they so choose.
Save the rest of the drinking for AFTER the game. Then you can get as hammered as you wish. That's certainly my plan
