The raucous and joyful playoff viewing parties outside Fiserv Forum have been a pride-inducing sight to see over the past few weeks – and now, with the Bucks on the ultimate stage, the arena itself is getting in on the action. 

For Games 1 and 2 played on the road in Phoenix, Fiserv Forum will host indoor watch parties to cheer on the Bucks at their home court. The game itself will be broadcast on the court's giant jumbotron scoreboard, and concessions stands will be open to feed fans while the Bucks hopefully sate their hunger and thirst for victory out in Arizona.

Tickets – which guarantee you a seat in the lower bowl – for the indoor watch party are on sale now and cost $10, with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation. Gates open an hour before tipoff.  (So, in the case of Games 1 and 2, doors should crack open around 7 p.m.) For more information and to claim your seat, visit the Bucks' website

Of course, Deer District will once again host outdoor viewing parties all around the plaza outside Fiserv Forum too. RSVPs are recommended, and gates to the plaza open two hours before tipoff – so get in there and get cheering so loud that they can hear you all the way in the Mountain time zone. 

For information on other Deer District bars almost certainly showing the game, check out this guide. And for more sports bars across the area to cheer on history, click here. But most important of all: Let's go Bucks!

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
