Am I the latest Milwaukee Bucks bandwagoner? Nah. But honestly, this whole “Fear the Deer” campaign is beyond enjoyable.
Seriously, whattaya do when you’re playing NBA basketball in relative geographic obscurity? (Don’t attack me Wisconsin. I love your state! Love it! Best meal I have ever enjoyed was in Madison.) You get what I’m saying, right? It’s not like Milwaukee is boasting the glamor, glitz, fake boobs and fake lips of Los Angeles. Honestly, how many of you can name the Bucks starting five? I’m willing to bet that a week ago there were several Atlanta Hawks fans who couldn’t either, but thanks to Bango, and three little words, “Fear the Deer,” everyone is starting to take notice.
If you’re not familiar with the actual Milwaukee Bucks team, I hope you’ve at least heard of Bango, the Milwaukee Bucks mascot. This deer is insane. Like Bambi all grown up, and drinking Red Bull for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Forget his sad looking deer eyes, the man in the suit is a beast. I have to personally state that he’s one of the most athletic mascots of all time. Clearly a gymnast or stunt man, he’s got more great hits than Air Supply! If you didn’t catch the action earlier this week, here’s a little taste.
FEAR THE DEER!
The Atlanta Hawks will try and keep their season alive tonight vs. the rising Milwaukee Bucks. Bango will be there–will you be watching? Game 6 begins at 7:00 EDT/4:00PDT on ESPN.
