If I had a guess to what these guys were talking about my guess would be. "Hey Pietrus, Charlie Bell really plays in the NBA?" No clue if that was really said, but I could see it. Everyone knows that the Bucks are a joke right now. They just can't get things going what so ever.
The Bucks did their, lets-play-good-the-first-half, but-tank-in-the-second against the Magic Wednesday. Milwaukee held an 8 point lead at halftime. Only to get out scored by 13 in the third quarter. I really felt that the Magic might hang 150 points on the Bucks, and they could have if they would have played better in the first half.
Tonight is going to be a quick recap
* Charlie Bell, sorry for making fun of you, but 8 minutes 0-5 shooting 1 turnover and 2 fouls. WE PAY YOU TO DO THAT SHIT?!?
* Jennings led all Bucks with 20 points. He also had 4 assists and 4 three pointers. Lets give him the Bucks POTG. Just keep doing what your doing kid this team will get better once we get some cap room. Which by then, we will probably just have to give it all to Jennings.
* Bogut got a double double after being benched the second half of Monday nights game. He finished with 15 and 10 not a huge game, but he did what he could for a dubs/dubs piece.
* Bucks 7-9 from the free throw line. Magic 21-26 from the line. Need I say more.
* Jason Williams, wow, the guy is real old but still getting the job done. He finished the game with 16 pts, 7 asts, 5 threes and a +/- of +37. That will earn him the Hunter of the Night.
* Mr. Howard and Mr. Carter had a good nights for Orlando. They finished with a combined 42 pts, 13 rebs. That would be nice to get from a few Bucks maybe once a month if we could.
* Bucks did have 18 offensive rebounds Wednesday night. I have to say, that might be the highlight of the night.
Not a great way for the Bucks to end 2009, but maybe they will turn it around in 2010. Milwaukee starts off the new year with a home game against Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday the 2nd day of 2010. I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Be safe and please for the sake of my life DON'T drink and drive.

If I had a guess to what these guys were talking about my guess would be. "Hey Pietrus, Charlie Bell really plays in the NBA?" No clue if that was really said, but I could see it. Everyone knows that the Bucks are a joke right now. They just can't get things going what so ever.
One of my favorite nights of the year is the annual playing of the Pro Bowl, even though it's a game that seemingly no one besides me likes to watch. There's just something I love about watching my favorite stars half-ass rush the quarterback and seeing guys generally just not try in a football game while wearing hideous jerseys, I don't know why. Usually I love to see at least three or four Packers in the Pro Bowl, but this year, I hope to see none.
This is Gweeds (left) and I during one of our more successful nights when we spent about $40 on a stuffed animal machine. These are the kind of people I choose to associate with in my real life, and for that I have no regrets. Let's all wish Gweeds a happy birthday today, and thank him for his hard work as he suffers through Bucks games to provide us all with recaps. Thanks buddy, and happy birthday.
We have all had enough with how the Bucks are playing right now. I'm sure Scott Skiles must feel the same way, because he put his foot down to people who don't play hard. At halftime Monday night the Bucks were down 56-34. To start the third quarter Skiles went with Brandon Jennings, Ersan Ilyasova, Kurt Thomas, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, and last but not least Jodie Meeks. For those who are saying whats wrong with that, well that leaves Bogut, Redd, and Delfino on the bench. And the bench is where they stayed.
In the third quarter the Bucks did make a little run to cut the lead to 10 at one point. They could have cut it to 7, but Jennings missed a three point shot. After the miss the Bobcats ran down the court to get a 3 point play of their own. That would bring an end to the Bucks run, but it was nice to see the guys that cared try hard to come back from being down 22 at half.
Skiles kept the Delfino, Bogut and Redd on the bench for the whole second half. One person who usually plays a lot of minutes finally got put in with 1:50 left in the game, only so Jennings could grab some rest. Who is this person you ask? Well, it's the one and only Charlie Bell. I am not sure if this means he is in the doghouse with Skiles, but when your only time in the second half is in the final 1:50 of the second half, that's like a kick to the nuts.
Lets check out a few highlights from the 94-84 defeat.
* Brandon Jennings only had 9 points in the first half, but really turned it around in the second. Jennings finished the game with 24 points and 7 assists. He really played hard in the first half, and you could see he wasn't happy about how the Bucks were playing. In the second half he really attacked the hoop, but just never got a call. Lets give him the Bucks POTG for his hard work for all four quarters.
* Luc Richard Mbah a Moute played hard all four quarters too. He really worked hard on both ends. Luc is not a stud of a player, but he will always work hard every play. If only a few of the other guys had the heart that he has.
* The Bucks were not hitting shots from downtown, but for some reason they kept taking them in the second quarter. They finished the game a dreadful 6-25 from beyond the arc. The Bucks could not just find their stroke, again.
* Gerald Wallace was huge again for the Bobcats like he usually is. Wallace finished the game with 21 points and 14 rebounds. This guy is just an animal for this team. He earned himself the Hunter of the Night.
* Flip Murray, a former Buck, had a nice night off the bench. He scored 16 points and had 6 rebounds, but his biggest stat was his +/- which was +22.
* The Bucks are just not playing as a team right now. It seems that people are looking to shoot first and pass second. The games are not going to get any easier from here as they travel to face Orlando Wednesday night at 6:00 central. The other thing the Bucks need to stop right now is only scoring 10-14 points in a quarter. If this do this against Orlando, then the Magic will just destroy the Bucks.

It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep...
There a few things we won't change our mind about here at The Bucky Channel: Favre is a douche, Cutler sucks, A Christmas Story is a terrible movie, and Northwestern is a joke. The first three things I mentioned I will take to my grave, but the last one is slowly unraveling in front of my face. Somehow, someway, Northwestern is turning into a reputable athletic institution.
1. Domination - Now that is the team that I expected to see after what we had grown accustomed to in the preseason. Just as some of us here in Cheese Country were starting to worry about the Packers playoff chances (read: me), Green Bay came out and dominated the Seahawks 48-10. Sure, it helped that Seattle played worse than any team I've seen play this season, but it was a good statement for a Packers team that needed to rebound after a tough loss to Pittsburgh last weekend.
I've been kind of getting into some serious Bucks fever lately, even after the honeymoon of the arrival of Bucks Jesus Brandon Jennings has worn off a bit. One of the presents I received for Christmas was a 2009-2010 Bucks Media Guide, and because I spend a lot of time in the bathroom I guess you can say that I've been doing a lot of reading. Looking at all of the statistics and all of the history has got me a bit more excited for a possible playoff run this season. However, that's a feeling that usually dwindles a little bit once I, you know, actually watch a game.
This is already shaping up to be the best Christmas ever I must say, mainly because it's three o'clock and I just woke up. But the time spent with the family has been great as well, and I had a few minutes here to just wish all of the The Bucky Channel readers a Merry Christmas. Hopefully you're having as good of a holiday season as I am, but I'm not sure how many of you got a gift as awesome as a UFL Florida Tuskers t-shirt!
Earlier this year, after a dreadful Packers loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I wrote an article about how there was no way that Green Bay would find themselves in the playoffs this season. Then, just two days later, I changed my mind and said that the Packers could screw up and still finish 10-6. Well, now, two days ago I said that the Steelers loss wasn't that big of a deal, but now I'm starting to worry out loud about the Packers actually making this thing.
Good thing T.J. Ford still can't shoot well. With the game on the line, the former Bucks guard missed two chances to tie the game with under 15 seconds on Monday night, paving the way for a 84-81 Milwaukee victory over the Pacers. The Bucks tried all they could to piss away this game on their own, but they got the win. But it wasn't easy.
Michael Redd had a chance to extend the lead late in the game, but he missed and the Pacers got a few good looks at some threes. Indiana would miss both shots and Bogut got the rebound. The Aussie got fouled, and had two free throws to put the game away. Now, the Bucks haven't been shooting well from the line lately, so the pressure was on Andrew to come up clutch. His first shot just caught the front of the rim, but you had to figure that he would cowboy up to make the second. He had a nice stroke but predictably, it rattled out.
The Pacers then had a one last chance to tie it as Ford released it, and had that shot gone in I may have not watched another Bucks game this year. Ford hit back iron to give the Bucks the 84-81 victory.
Even though he couldn't hit the clutch shots, Andrew Bogut was a one man show Monday night. He seemed to be the only one that had his stroke all night. He carried Milwaukee in the first half as they only put up 36 points in the first two quarters. The biggest thing this team does is hit shots from downtown, but they shot 0-8 in the first half. That will hurt this team any game if they can't hit shots from deep, because it's unlikely Bogut will be putting up 31 every night.
It was the Andrew Bogut show not only because he was dominant, but like I said it was also because the rest of the Bucks were not. Things stayed close throughout the third quarter, which ended up being the turning point of the game. Only five Bucks scored in the quarter, but those five were still able to get 29 points in the quarter. Bogut, Bell, Jennings, Mbah a Moute, and Redd helped the Bucks gain a two point lead heading into the final frame. I am going to guess that only five guys scoring in a quarter is not going to be a good thing, but Monday night it worked for the Bucks.
As the fourth quarter started all I was doing was wishing for the Bucks to make a run and build a lead. When that didn't happen, all I could think about was the Bucks recent string of getting beat late. When neither team really caught fire in the fourth, it appeared as if that stage was being set again.
I felt a little better when Jennings made a jumper with 28 seconds left to give the Bucks the 84-79 lead. When he made that, I figured there was no way they can blow this one. Well they tried, as my boy Tyler Hansbrough got an offensive rebound and a dunk to make it 84-81 with 20 seconds left. You already know what happens after this from above, so if you forgot go back and read it. We missed four free throws and Ford missed two three pointers, and the Bucks won the game. Thank God.
Lets look at the some highlights from the Bucks win.
* Congrats to Andrew for his career high of 31 points. He played an awesome game as the Bucks finally went through Bogut to score, which I hope they start to do more soon. Bogut finished the game with 31 points, 18 rebounds, and 3 blocks. Huge game for Bogut as he will earn the Bucks POTG.
* Brandon Jennings started rough but had a nice second half. He finished with 16 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds. Still didn't really have a hot shooting night as he was 7-19, but he looked to make the extra pass a few more times than he has been.
* Free throws, Free throws, FREE THROWS. Why do we have such a hard time making these things? The Bucks finished the game 9-20 from the free throw line. This just can't happen if you want to be a good team. I still don't understand how shooting free throws is so hard. Bogut, you used to hit three pointers in college like crazy, you should have a good shot. Redd you make threes in the NBA, Come on Man! Charlie Bell, you can make crazy baseline jump shots, but you can't make a shot when no one is defending you? Okay, I hope you get the point.
* The Pacers suck, but since I have to pick a Hunter of the Night, I guess I will go with Roy Hibbert, because he had 16 points and 7 rebounds. That's all the love the Pacers will get.
* Not so fun stat of the night this is that this was the Bucks first road win since Nov. 21st. That's one full month ago.
Overall a win is a win, so the Bucks will take it. This will improve their record to 12-14 on the season. Next up for the Bucks are the Wizards on Wednesday. Go figure, the last time these two teams met the Bucks lost a tight one 104-102. Lets hope the Bucks can change things Wednesday and get back to back wins.

If you're not down with that I got two words for ya....
1. Wow - It's what Ben Roethlisberger said after "The Claymaker's" (kudos to TBC reader Michael on the nickname) sack and fumble recovery on him was reversed, and it's the perfect word to describe what was a wild 37-36 Steelers victory over Green Bay. Coming into this game, the Packers had won five straight while the Steelers have lost five straight, something not typical of a depending Super Bowl championship. That fact alone would make anyone nervous about this game, and because of how much the Steelers had to prove you knew this was going to be a good litmus test for how good this Packers team is. And if we didn't know it already, this is a very good team. It's just that not every game is meant to be won, and that fact wasn't more true than it was on Sunday.
Another game, another last second loss for the Bucks. Between the two Bucks games this weekend and the Packers loss to the Steelers on Sunday, losing at the last second has been something we've grown accustomed to. In this particular case, it was a Tyreke Evans layup at the buzzer that sealed the deal to give Sacramento the 96-95 victory. Despite the loss and their 11-14 record, the Bucks still have the sixth seed in the east, for whatever that's worth. Anyway, lets give the POTG to Bogut and here's the box score. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to write a depressing Bucky Five.
They played with our hearts, they made us believe, and got us lost in the game. Alright enough with the Britney Spears act Milwaukee either get killed in games or smoke other team. I've had enough of these last minute meltdowns and failed comebacks. The Bucks played the first half of the game like a playoff team. Only to come out in the second half and play like a lottery team. Its clear that Milwaukee needs to find out what kind of team they really are.
The Bucks came out on fire again Friday night as they set the pace of the game early. Jennings had 6 assists half way through the first quarter and things were looking good. Buck were up 18-9 when the Cavs called timeout to get re-organized. They must have figured out something because they finished the quarter down 26-24.
The second quarter was much of the same. Milwaukee started the quarter off with an 8-0 run, in which Bell and Redd made three's. The Cavs again found their defense, which creates a lot for this team, to take the lead 35-34. The Bucks kept fighting for the rest of the quarter and finished the half with a 49-47 lead.
The third quarter is when the game fell apart for the Bucks. Milwaukee put up a monster 12 point quarter, and were down 71-61 at the end of three. Not much to talk about when your team puts up 12 points in a quarter.
The Fourth quarter was down, up, down for the Bucks. However, the Cavs decided to go ice cold and let the Bucks back in it. The Cavs played a little like the Bucks and decided not to score the final 4:35 of the game. The Bucks on the other hand were not shooting lights out, but kept trimming the lead. The Cavs had the ball up three, with 29 seconds to go all I could think of was James hitting a basket that would put the game out of reach. Well James started to drive with about 11 seconds left, only to lose the ball for a turnover. THE BUCKS STILL HAD HOPE.
Lets take a look at a few highlights from the game Friday night.
* Andrew Bogut, who we really needed to play well Friday, spent most the his night on the bench. He couldn't keep from hitting Shaq on some dumb fouls and he didn't move his feet. He finished the game with 4 points and 8 rebounds. He needs to show up for big games likes this against other dominating centers in the league.
* Brandon Jennings, as I said above, got off to a nice start finding open people. As the game went on he kind of got away from that and started looking for his shot. Usually he seems to have a feeling when he knows he is on. Tonight was not one of those nights and he should have been looking to pass more. He did however finish the game with 18 points and 8 assists.
* Ersan Ilyasova scored 9 of his points in the fourth quarter. This is why he should have been taking the shot to send the game in to overtime. Also what I like about him taking the shot is he is a bigger guy that even with a person in his face he can still get a good shot off. Either way he finished the game with 18 points and 7 rebounds. For his fourth quarter scoring we will give him Bucks POTG.
* Lebron James, why did you have to be the only to show up for your team? Without him Friday this team would have been hurting. He finished 2 assists short of a triple-double. He ended up with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists. That will earn him the Hunter of the Night award.
* For a look at the leader board lets go to Mo, Mo. Mo Williams, the former Buck, finished the game with 17 points and hit 2 three pointers. Not a huge game for Mo, but just another solid 17 point game.
* Last thing, Milwaukee was 7-26 from downtown. This teams lives and dies by the three. We will die a lot if they only shot 26.9% from deep.
Overall another close game for the Bucks, but in the end another L was put on the board. They fall to two games below .500 with a 11-13 record. They will look to bounce back Saturday night as they take on the Sacramento Kings at home. This will be a huge match up for young Jennings. The other front runner for rookie of the year Tyreke Evans will be in the Bradley Center. Lets hope Jennings can get the best of him. For the rest of the box score click the link below.
The unofficial end of the decade is just a few short weeks away, and with that comes the usual string of best/worst of the decade articles, and this column is no exception. If you look at things from an outsider prospective, it's been a pretty rough decade. The economy, 9/11, Favre - things have been tough. But there is one thing that clinches this as the worst decade of all time, and it's revealed in the latest edition of Winks Thinks.
Just wanted to give you all a heads up that Winks Thinks is being delayed until Friday this week. Half because I have a prior engagement, but the other half because I'm still not sure what I'm writing about. See you then!
Lots of exciting things going on in the world of NFL Coverage Maps this week. With the Packers game getting bumped up to 3:15 this weekend, that means that more than 90% of the country will be tuned in to Da Pack as they go for their sixth straight victory. Also, we have a split state market for the Fox Early Game, something that excites me way more than it should. Of course, this maps are all irrelevant if you have DirecTV and the NFL RedZone channel, but whatever. They're colorful.

From Sunday, December 13th, in an article I wrote entitled "The Bucky Five: That Makes Five in a Row": "Bear"ly Enough - I thought about going with that catchy little phrase as the title for this post, but I figured that most of the news outlets would have already swooped it up. Plus, I'm pretty sure my hometown paper, the Fond du Lac Reporter, will use that headline for like the 30th straight year.
The chatter has been growing louder all season, and it got even more recognizable after Sunday's Packers win in Chicago. With the Bears driving, one of the Packers best defenders made a key interception to help the Packers get the go ahead touchdown. Was it Brandon Chillar? No, that dude hardly ever plays. Actually it was Nick Collins, the Packers superb safety who is still looking for a contract extension.
It may not be the haul that the Red Sox are likely to bring in with John Lackey and possibly Mike Cameron, and it's certainly not as newsworthy as the trade that's looking to go down involving Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay, but it's still something, as the Brewers continue to make a couple of moves in this still very young offseason.
1. "Bear"ly Enough - I thought about going with that catchy little phrase as the title for this post, but I figured that most of the news outlets would have already swooped it up. Plus, I'm pretty sure my hometown paper, the Fond du Lac Reporter, will use that headline for like the 30th straight year. Admittedly, things did get a little dicey for the Packers as their struggles in the red zone allowed the Bears to stay in this game longer than they should have. Chicago did actually grab the lead and hang on to it throughout the fourth quarter, but a late Ryan Grant touchdown gave the Packers the lead and the victory. The Bears did have a chance to come back and tie it up towards the end of the game, but Jay Cutler is their quarterback so there was absolutely no chance of that happening. He sucks.
Back and forth action, last second shots, and multiple overtimes. To put how amazing this Bucks game was into words would be a difficult, and in this case it's one neither Gweeds or I will be attempting. Both of us had our respective work holiday parties this weekend, and unfortunately on this night watching the Bucks wasn't on the top of our priorities (whereas being drunk enough to socialize with our coworkers was). So no recap on this one, but will we give the POTG to Luke Ridnour for carrying the Bucks in overtime. In lieu of a full recap, here's a link to the box score and some video highlights. Thanks for reading.
Before they would meet on the floor of the Kohl Center for their yearly showdown, the Wisconsin Badgers and the Marquette Golden Eagles had a couple of in-state tune-ups. Marquette took on UW-Milwaukee, and easily won the game. Wisconsin took on UW-Green Bay, and, well actually they lost. So, yeah.
Okay, we all know that I'm not very good with photoshop, but this wasn't too bad of an effort, was it? Yeah, alright, it's pretty poor. But you get the point, as the conference with eleven members is looking to expand to twelve, all while keeping the Big Ten moniker in tact of course.
Hopefully by now you've all realized just how sorry I am for last week's Winks Thinks, the one where I tried to talk about Christmas movie remakes. I was rushed, had a lack of ideas, and when I finally did think of something worthwhile I executed it poorly. But, each passing week brings another shot at redemption, and hopefully I succeed this week. Lots to talk about this week, specifically regarding the BCS mess, as it's so often referred to. Not only do I complain about the bowl matchups, but I complain about complaining about them, so that should be fun to read. Also, thoughts on the Badgers horrible loss to UW-Green Bay, WWE PPV predictions, and a reference to a 1987 movie that only Bear will enjoy. Is the suspense killing you yet? Well, no need to wait, go check out this week's edition of Winks Thinks.
One of the first running jokes we had on this site was our appreciation for Morry Gash, the Associated Press photographer who we soon realized was the go-to guy for Wisconsin sports. Whenever we were looking for pictures for recaps be it the Bucks, Brewers, Badgers, or Packers, it seemed as if Morry Gash was always there, and we appreciated his work. Sometimes though, we'd go for a week or two without a Morry Gash sighting, and we'd start to wonder where he was. There are other good photographers in Wisconsin, but few as good as Morry Gash.
This Sunday is going to feel a little different this weekend, as the Packers are back on the weekend shift after playing their last two on Thanksgiving and then Monday Night. Should be a good weekend though for football watching, as most of us will be getting the Packers/Bears showdown as well as a couple of strong interconference matchups. Here's what we're getting in the state that is always thinking "Forward", and thanks as always to The506.

I don't know what about this video makes me laugh so much. Maybe it's the insaneness of Madison college students, maybe it's the random Lord of the Rings references, maybe it's the fact that the video just contains a hell of a lot of snowmen. Either way, enjoy what can only be the first of many rounds between these snowmen and the good snowplow crew of Madison, Wisconsin.
It's easy to realize that the biggest difference between the Brewers of 2008 and the Brewers of 2009 was their pitching staff, and it looks like that may true for the 2010 Brewers as well. Only this time, in a good way. The Brewers made two major additions to their pitching staff on Wednesday, one to their starting rotation and one to their bullpen.
In honor of the wonderful conditions outside this morning, here's some Blizzard Man for you all to enjoy. Happy snowing.
There's a reason why Gweeds writes the majority of the Bucks recaps around here. Simply put, he's just more of a basketball guy than I am. But even I, or anyone else for that matter, can see that the Bucks are struggling right now, and struggling bad. In their latest disaster, Milwaukee did show enough to stay competitive with Boston, but ultimately fell to the Celtics 98-89. It was their 7th straight loss in their last eight games. Not good.
1. Penalties, and What Do Mean Your In-Laws? - The score was 27-14 in favor of the Packers, but the numbers that will be most looked at after their game with the Baltimore Ravens is the 310 total yards in penalties. Every week I feel I mention at least something about how bad the Packers were committing fouls, and they were again Monday night committing 11 penalties for 175 yards, with two of those being massive pass interference flags on Tramon Williams. The Ravens though were equal to the task, racking up twelve flags for 135 yards. All in all, a sloppy and likely unenjoyable game if you were anyone but a Packers fan. But for us Cheeseheads, it was a pretty enjoyable night as the Packers won their fourth straight game to improve to 8-4. I admit I thought we were done after the loss in Tampa, but we are finally looking like the team I thought we could be. Stay the course Pack, stay the course.
The Winter Meetings got underway on Monday, and there's a lot of rumors about some major moves that may or may not go down this offseason. First off, thank God the Cubs didn't somehow get Curtis Granderson. Second, who's ready for some Randy Wolf love? The lefty looks primed to come to Milwaukee, as it appears we're set to throw three years and roughly $26 million at him. Fine with me. Randy Wolf isn't the cream of the free agent crop, but he doesn't suck, and that's all I'm really looking for out of a Brewers pitcher. Plus, it gives me the chance to play this:
With the World Cup groups now finally being set, many of the experts are coming out with their predictions and analysis about which teams will advance and move on to the later rounds. And since I consider myself an expert because I've watched a handful of CONCACAF games and nothing else, here are my initial predictions for who will advance out of their respective World Cup groups.
Even if the Packers do play tonight, today is still a Monday and Mondays are never fun. But as you are struggling to get back into your job after a fun-filled weekend, just remember: You have a job and Jason Kendall does not. I'm sure Kendall is a good guy and all, but I hated him as a player and I hated him with the Brewers. I hated when he'd bat 9th, I hated how every at-bat was a chopper to third, and I hated how Minute Maid Park was the only ballpark where Kendall could even physically hit a home run. Good bye shithead, and welcome Gregg Zaun!
In the early moments of the Bucks game against the visiting Cavaliers, things were looking too good to be true. The Bucks started the game hot with high intensity as they got to an early 11-0 lead, and forced Cleveland to call an early timeout. Again, things were looking like this might be a good game. But then the Cavs decided to play some ball too, and things were definitely too good to be true.
Late in the first quarter and early in the second quarter is when this game got out of hand. The Bucks decided to miss every shot and Cleveland went on an unprecedented 29-0 run. During this run Milwaukee took some awful shots and just looked lost. What went from a game that was suppose to be Jennings vs James actually turned into the Bucks announcers vs James.
