Fear the Deer
They play hard and defend. Bogut's progression as a big man has been impressive, the Salmons trade has worked out better than I imagined, and although Jennings' scoring is down he's running the offense quite efficiently for a rookie. As a group, they've bought into Skiles system, and its paying dividends right now. It goes without saying that I'm really enjoying the season.
Then this evening, my inbox received a reminder email on some reduced ticket prices for some of the upcoming games. With it came the slightly modified Bucks logo graphic above, along with the slogan 'Fear the Deer'. While I can take or leave the slogan, the blood-red eyes are a nice touch. They're menacing and kinda bad-ass, without having to add a bull-snort to make the deer seem serious. I really hope the Bucks keep this look. Maybe flashing the eyes red up on the scoreboard during critical stretches of the game would get the fans fired up and feeling serious about their Bucks. Or maybe not, given some of the clowns that have been observed at the BC of late (see 'Fun Times at the Bradley Center'). Its better than some cartoon-style font that says 'Get Loud' or 'Make Noise' anyways. Point is - I like it.
