Andrew Bogut Elite Squad 6, Milwaukee Bucks Fans

Do you have what it takes to become a member of Andrew Bogut’s elite squad 6? There’s only one way to find out. Next Tuesday, from 6pm-9pm, the Bucks will be holding fan auditions at The Bradley Center in Milwaukee. The loudest, most spirited fans will earn a chance to sit in Andrew Bogut’s seats. He has set aside 100 lower level seats for the rowdiest fans Milwaukee has ever seen. The first set will be given out for the Buck’s home opener against Detroit on Halloween! Bogut says the way to keep these tickets is to stay rowdy! Be loud! Paint your face! Make up a cheer! Wear red and green! During games, people will be watching these special fans to determine their level of cheer. The more boisterous they are, the more tickets these fans can acquire.
Why would Bogut do such a thing, you might ask. Well, the hope is that the members of Squad 6 can intimidate players from opposing teams, thus creating a home court advantage for the Bucks. In addition, members of Squad 6 can inspire other fans to unleash their inner fan.
This is something I can get behind. What a great way to build a bigger, better, stronger, FAN BASE for the Milwaukee Bucks. Fans are what this team needs. As Milwaukeeans, we need to get behind our team no matter who they are! Besides, who doesn’t love being a raucous basketball fan clad in red and green face paint and sporting a foam hand? I don’t know about you, but I plan to attend fan auditions and win some seats.

It’s Only up from Here: Bucks Lose in Preseason Opener

The Bucks lost their preseason opener against the Minnesota Timberwolves, 117-103. I guess it could’ve been a lot worse. Coach Skiles didn’t really have anything positive to say about the game which was saturated with fouls and bad defense. Skiles praised Warrick for his performance in the game, but that was about it. The Bucks trailed at the half 56-44 and never really picked it up in the second half.

I’m not worried, though, it’s only the very first game of the season. The Bucks have the rest of the month to work out their issues and find their footing. Its good for them to get these kinds of games out of their system so that when the regular season rolls around they will be good to go. At least the rookie got a taste of his first real NBA game!

Tickets for preseason games at the Bradley are on sale now and with the new NBA rule that prohibits players from standing while on the bench, you might actually get to see the game from your seats! The Packers have their bye week this week so why not go to Green Bay to see the Bucks play the Bulls at the Resch Center? Otherwise you can enjoy the Bucks in the comfort of the Bradley Center when they play the Timberwolves October 17th and the Pistons on the 23rd.
