The Milwaukee Bucks. Good grief, what can you say about the Milwaukee Bucks? Monday night, the Bucks defeated the Detroit Pistons to complete a four-game series sweep and advance to the second round of the playoffs. And Giannis Antetokounmpo. Good grief, what can you say about Giannis Antetokounmpo?
The Milwaukee Brewers. Good grief, what can you say about the Milwaukee Brewers? Okay, the Brewers got clobbered Monday night by the St. Louis Cardinals, but whatever. The Brewers have been playing terrific ball and they’re a ton of fun to watch. And Christian Yelich. Good grief, what can you say about Christian Yelich? (Other than “I need a cold beer and a brat with relish / But I’m in my seat when I see Christian Yelich”?)
Well, maybe they can say something to each other. Drive west past Dream Lab at 327 W. National Ave. and you’ll see something beautiful:
Yes, the Bucks superstar has (almost) joined the Brewers superstar on the Walker’s Point mural. Well, the back of the Bucks superstar, anyway. Yelich appeared on the side of the Dream Lab building (shared with Tippecanoe Herbs & Apothecary) last fall; work began on Giannis this month.
The mural is the creation of Dream Lab owner and operator Shawn Dekay. “Something about Yelich, man. He’s just so exciting. He’s doing things that Milwaukee hasn’t seen in a long time,” Dekay told FOX 6 last fall. “I definitely think [Giannis] is up there with Yelich. Even if he doesn’t win, to our city he’s the MVP,” Dekay told Urban Milwaukee earlier this month.
Hell yeah. GO BUCKS/BREWERS. (And don’t forget that other Giannis mural.)
