Goodbye Bradley Center, Thanks for Everything
Bradley Center is no longer a thing. On Sunday morning, the building’s roof was blown up and construction will begin clearing out the former space that use to hold the Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Admirals and the Marquette Golden Eagles. There are a variety of rumors on what will take its place. There is a ton of real estate there being seven acres. The collapse of the Bradley Center does leave all of us feeling a little reminiscent on Monday morning thinking back to all of the games, concerts and events attended there throughout the year. I never had season tickets, but it’s a place where we all visited in the winter time.

Being a Bucks and Marquette fan, the Bradley Center holds a little more nostalgia than others. My greatest moments there involve both Marquette and Milwaukee Bucks basketball. I’ve seen a playoff game there when Milwaukee beat Chicago as the young and upcoming team ready to challenge the Eastern Conference. Countless Marquette games through the years, but one that stood out to me was actually a lost because I came down from Eau Claire, sick as all shit, and stood in the student section. It was an awesome game, and the fact Jeremiah Rivers beat Marquette that day is unfortunate. Also, the Bradley Center had memories for me like concerts such as Bruce Springsteen or your dad surprising you to go watch WWE wrestling when you were a kid.
Thanks for everything, BC.
