A new Bucks season tips off tonight at Fiserv Forum – and in case seeing Giannis and Damian Lillard pick-and-roll together in Milwaukee jerseys wasn't exciting enough, the team as always has a number of fun theme nights and giveaways set on the schedule for the upcoming 2023-24 schedule. 

This year's lineup of off-court excitement includes not one but two giveaways based around our newest superstar – a Damian Lillard bobblehead and a Dame Time timepiece – three new player-designed hats courtesy of BMO, a Giannis puzzle and nesting doll, and nights planned around Halloween, Pride Night, Black History Month, Noche Latina and Fan Appreciation Night. There are also two nights dedicated both on and off the court to the brand-new In-Season Tournament – so we'll see how that goes.

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.
