Bucks add tangible victory to series of moral victories

Published April 26, 2015

No, they didn't win the NBA championship or the Eastern Conference. They're still a long way off from winning their series, much less tying it up. But the Milwaukee Bucks won a playoff game on Saturday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, and it means more than a single game victory.

Published Feb. 3, 2015

Eferin Burns Sr., played many sports as a kid thanks to his mother's support, so he thinks it is only right that his two sons, ages 10 and 11, have the same opportunities.

Published Dec. 17, 2014

When I arrived to interview Harlem Globetrotter Sweet J Ekworomadu - the 12th female player in the team's 89-year history - in advance of their traditional New Year's Eve game at the BC, I was asked if I wanted to play a game of horse with Sweet J. Considering I hadn't shot a basketball since probably middle school, I couldn't turn down the opportunity fast enough. I was, however, able to ask some one-on-one questions with Ekworomadu.

Motorcycles and mainstream sports share a special bond in Wisconsin

Published Nov. 13, 2014

As a lifelong local baseball fan, some of my favorite pictures are of Milwaukee Braves' players riding in motorcycle sidecars at County Stadium in the 1960s. Of course, there's another classic motorcycle image from County Stadium in 1982 featuring Robin Yount, except he was on a Honda dirt bike instead of a Harley. These really cool vintage pictures show the long-time connection between motorcycles and sports in Wisconsin.
