Who Won The Week For Wisconsin? Bye Weeks Take The Crown
Last week, we started a new segment called ‘Wisconsin Week One Winner’ or something like that. After reading the title a few times, I hated it and finally found how I would like to call it each week. For those that didn’t read this blog last week, each week, I’ll select a winner for the week. It will sometimes be people, places, things, events, anything else happening in the state that week. It’s supposed to be fun, not too serious, and something to enjoy on a Friday.
THE WINNER OF THE WEEK
Bye Weeks: Who would have thought that a bye week would suck so much in a pandemic? Holy shit, guys. There is nothing to talk about in local sports right now. It’s kind of wild if you think about it. We only have the National Football League. That’s it. Typically, we would have a few Badger football topics to roll through, but they’re not starting up until next week. Due to the shifting basketball schedules, there is no Bucks’ lead up to talk about and still five weeks away from Marquette and Wisconsin. Baseball will not have an offseason until November/December as usual. After freebasing sports like Lamar Odom with crack cocaine, the well has run dry locally temporarily. Congrats, Bye Weeks, you won.
Giannis Rumors: Start it up! Miami! Dallas! Ramona ‘I carry LeBron and Lakers’ water’ Shelbourne mentioned the Golden State Warriors a couple of days ago. It’s all bullshit. More than ever after I listened to Brian Windhorst on The Ryen Russillo Podcast. It’s a must-listen if you’re an NBA and what it might mean for Giannis. Here’s the TLDR… The league might be kinda fucked financially for a few years.
Marquette’s new jerseys – These got a lot of run this week. They’re not winners this week because the jerseys are just B to B- jerseys. I’ve gotten more onboard the more I’ve seen them, but they were so close to having something special with them. But that didn’t happen. The players like them which is all that matters honestly.
The ‘C’ Word: We had a Wisconsin assemblywomen candidate who used the words ‘Cunts’ in a tweet. That’s incredible. Didn’t think we had politicians dropping ‘c’ bombs. That feels like a New York thing or a Seattle thing. But more power to here. Honestly, when I saw the Journal Sentinel article, I thought it was a play on words.
