Milwaukee: Where Grocery Bag Protests Happen

The Milwaukee Bucks' record sits at 23-43 on the season. The players lack any resemblance of desire to win. Management seems unable to fix the team's problems. Needless to say, some fans are less than thrilled with the product Bucks owner Sen. Herb Kohl has put on the floor.

Like many die-hards, they realize there was only one thing to do: a grocery bag protest.

Prior to the game, 50-100 people were lined up with bags covering their faces. Some carried a sign which sarcastically read, "Where Amazing Happens." Chants of "another 20 point beat down; your Milwaukee Bucks, where amazing happens" could be heard. Apparently, the TV cameras tried their hardest to keep the group off of the screen, even panning away from them on jumbotron shots.

The protest could be considered a success, if only for the picture it left us with. Here, Herb Kohl watches are bag-wearing protesters are led out of the arena. The senator looks peeved, especially in comparison with the bald guy in the green polo (upper center of picture).
Hopefully, the actions of these fans will change things in Milwaukee. For some crazy reason, I have my doubts.

Great story. Reminded me of the beer protest:

July, 2007 - Some Wisconsin brewers held their own version of the Boston Tea Party on Tuesday, spewing beer suds into the Milwaukee River to protest legislation they say hampers start-up breweries.

Both had something to gripe about.

Is that an authentic Ruben Patterson jersey? Good lord.

Bobby Simmons jerseys must have been out of stock.

About the Undrafted Free Agent

Ron Crimson was the only player on the high school roster to not get in a game. He couldn't argue with the decision, because he sucked. Needless to say, yet stated anyway, when he entered the NBA draft following his sophomore season in college, he went undrafted. Now, Ron Crimson is the Undrafted Free Agent.

Contact the Undrafted Free Agent

Interested in informing the Undrafted Free Agent of his mistakes, advertisement opportunities, or a scoop on the latest sports scandal? (You can guess which is more likely.) Well, email him at undraftedfreeagent [at] gmail.com.

Look at This!

There's nothing here; I just needed to fill some space. Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! I also needed to balance it out a bit.
