Just got done watching Hawks-Bucks Game 5. Bucks win and are up 3-2 … Eastern Conference finals. Can’t talk about the Bucks without talking about the city of Milwaukee, an American treasure of a city.
I was lucky enough to get to ‘The Mil’ once a year for about a dozen years and I always had an unbelievable time. In my mind, it’s always been underrated. Great people, compact downtown, action aplenty.
I thought I had a great feel for that city, and then I went recently — only this time, in the summer. Every time I’d been to Milwaukee had been in winter. It was always cold. Always. But that was cool. The rest of everything more than made up for it.
Summer was a different level entirely. The Milwaukee I just saw in June was incredible, a barrel of fun, a three-ring circus. As I like to say, “There was action.”
