7:23 -The site is back up and running. and while we've been frantically trying to fix our problems, we've also taken in a little bit of FSN Wisconsin's Bucks Live pregame show. They're really selling the Chinese angle, which they should, but introducing segments with a cardboard sign that had Chinese writing on it (words like energy, home court) is a little cheesy. Oh, Scott Williams just held up a sign that said "Bucks Win". Great.
7:27 - Craig Coshun tells us it's the Year of the Rat. Craig was born in the Year of the Dragon, Scott in the Year of the Monkey.
7:29 - My prediction: Bucks lose by 3.
7:35 - Also a homecoming of sorts for two Houston Rockets. Carl Landry is from Milwaukee Vincent, Steve Novak returns from Marquette.
7:35 - 200 Million Expected to watch tonight. 90 Million expected to watch the Super Bowl tomorrow.
7:36 - Man, I've really bought into the hype.
7:38 - Oh yeah, I should mention Marquette won today.
7:39 - I thought about putting the newest updates at the top of the blog, instead of in chronological order, but I think this works better. Maybe not for Andy, who doesn't like to scroll.
7:40 - Also, Desmond Mason returns tonight. Redd is still out.
7:41 - Don't look for Steve Novak tonight. Someone put Mike James on the active roster twice, leaving him off. Welcome to the pros.
7:42 - Tip-off.
7:44 - Yi misses. Yao scores.
7:46 - Yi 4, Yao 2. Bucks 4, Rockets 2.
7:46 - If you want to leave comments, I'll post some on the live blog.
7:47 - Houston a little sloppy so far.
7:47 - Bogut playing soft.
7:53 - Commercial break. Bucks up 10-7
7:55 - I've already decided my next major purchase is a Yi Jianlian jersey.
7:55 - Landry with a deuce. He had 26 the other night. Too bad he didn't have a tryout with the Bucks first. Oh wait..... he did.
7:56 - When I said Bogut playing soft, I meant on D! He's got the Bucks last eight.
7:57 - DMase returns.
7:58 - Battier 3. He's an underrated player, both in real life and fantasy. Seriously, you should trade for him.
8:00 - TMac owns the Bucks. Deep 3 for him. Houston up 3.
8:02 - Nice block for Bogut. Why did I say he was soft again? Those goes my credibility.
8:03 - Chris says, "you should really put the most recent updates at the top, this way is foolish."
8:04 - Because of Chris's suggestion, I'll make a new thread for each quarter.
8:05 - Rockets 21, Bucks 20 after one. Bogut with 10 pts.
