When I see a Kohl’s Department Store, I’ll think of you
MILWAUKEE — At the spry young age of 76, Senator Herb Kohl announced his intent to retire from elected office today.
"I’ve always believed it is better to leave a job  a little too early than a little too late," Kohl said at a news  conference at his Milwaukee office.
"The interest and energy I had for this job will find a new home," he said.
Let’s hope that a retired Kohl, owner of the Milwaukee Bucks franchise since 1985, can harness that energy (or should I say, ‘Energee!’?) and focus it on getting the Bucks back to the playoffs next season.

An Open Letter to Atlanta
Dear Atlanta,
Did you really just cancel tonight’s basketball game vs. the Milwaukee Bucks?
Who are you, Philadelphia?!
BUCK UP, you fucking pansies.
Is it even snowing in Atlanta? Is it even supposed to snow in Atlanta?!

One concern was having enough staff at Philips Arena  to work the game. Ice and snow hit north Georgia on Sunday and made  travel difficult around Atlanta. Portions of some roads were closed.

So let me get this straight: You canceled the game because you’re afraid that nobody would come to work at the arena tonight? Because there’s a little leftover ice around town?
Get real.
Well, you’re definitely afraid of something, Atlanta.
Are you afraid that your little nips were going to get chafed out there in that extreme weather (33°F, 7 mph wind)?*

The Hawks were scheduled to leave after the game  to travel to Toronto for Wednesday’s game against the Raptors. The  de-icing truck for the Hawks’ private plane was stuck on an interstate  for a time Tuesday.

Oh for the love of God.
You see, Atlanta, it’s actually snowing in Toronto. That’s part of what those of us living above the Mason-Dixon line call ‘winter.’ Look it up; it happens every year. 
So wipe off your vaginas, warm up your nipples, and get your shit together, Atlanta. Because this is America, and sometimes it snows. Get used to it.
Love,
Wisconsin
P.S. If this is how you react to ice, I can’t wait to see how your Falcons react to Clay Matthews, B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, and the rest of the Green Bay Packers’ defense this Sunday in the playoffs.
*I was being sarcastic. 33°F is back-to-school weather for Wisconsin you fucking pussies.

Brett [had] great years here in Green Bay, and any time a great competitor like that leaves, no one wants to see that, but they’ve done a great job of regrouping with Aaron Rodgers and I believe that Cleveland will do the same.

Milwaukee, Wis. — Dwyane Wade is back in his old college stomping grounds again this week putting in some face time for area youths.
Wade is in town this week giving back to the city that saw him   through his college basketball career at Marquette University. The   wildly successful Miami Heat player sat in today on an awards ceremony   celebrating five special students at the Boys & Girls Club of America’s Youth of the Year event honoring these hardworking students who will enter Marquette   University as freshmen in the fall and, for their four years of college,   will never, ever pay a cent of tuition.
Yes, you read that correctly. In part with The Boys & Girls Club,   Marquette University, and Dwyane’s own cleverly-named Wade’s World Foundation, these five incoming   freshmen will never even have to look at a tuition bill.


Pretty sweet, hey?
And while it goes without saying that I am undoubtedly thrilled for  the wealth of opportunities this will provide these bright young  students, I’m equally impressed that D-Wade showed up in Milwaukee for these kids today. That, in itself, is fucking amazing.
What a tremendous example he’s setting for these kids, right off the bat. I mean, let’s be honest - nobody shows  up for anything anymore! In a society where it’s become undeniably  easier to use text message instead of the telephone, where a cure-all  for even the mildest of setback is to blindly throw money at the problem until it’s out of sight, or  where, in the case of some celebrities today, sending a spokesperson to a low-profile (and therefore  an arguably unimportant) event in  lieu of showing up in person has become quite the norm, the fact that  Wade made the effort to personally attend this event really bespeaks of  his loyalty to Milwaukee and the value he places on education.
Dwyane Wade cared enough about the college education and future of  the kids he sponsors to show up for them today - and with an example like that,  hopefully these kids will follow in his footsteps by showing up, every day, for the rest of their lives.
