A Guide For Packers Fans Who Have Bucks Tickets Saturday Night
When the playoff schedule came out for the National Football League, it put fans of the Milwaukee Bucks and Green Bay Packers in the crosshairs. At the time, the Bucks had a game against Sacramento Kings at 7:00 pm which is the same time as the Packers game basically. Green Bay gets going at 7:15 pm. This left a lot of people who have tickets for the Saturday night game upset, frustrated, and annoyed with the NFL. The Bucks are home next weekend too but may run into a similar conflict on Sunday with Denver coming to town at 6:00 pm. So the question is how to you do both if you have Bucks tickets?
Before we even go there, you could sell the tickets. But honestly, it is pretty hard to obtain Bucks tickets these days, and if you got it at a reasonable price, it makes little sense to just say screw it and I’m watching the Packers. If you’re privileged to have both Packers and Bucks tickets for this night, I get it then completely. Or if there is a Packers party planned at your house or with your friends, that is probably not something you want to miss out on. But if all those factors are not happening, here’s what I would suggest.
1. Make sure you have an app like YouTubeTV available to you – I realize not everyone is a YouTubeTV subscriber, but you can do a free trial for five days I believe. The mobile app is amazing honestly. You get your full networks and are able to watch whatever you want on there. You could also use other apps if needed, but I cannot speak to their success.
2. Figure out where you’re going after the Bucks game – Here’s the thing, it will be crowded as all get out on Saturday night. The crowds will be massive. You need a plan. My personal recommendation would be Good City Brewing, Turner Hall’s bar, or Deer Camp (Formerly Brass Alley). Think all of those spots will not have as many Packers fans as some of the other spots.
3. Go Zero Dark 12 and don’t have any communication with the outside world – I think this is hard as hell. More so than it was a few years ago. You could blackout and have zero details of the Packers game. Flip on the DVR and start the game with knowing nothing when you get home. First of all, the beer garden will likely have the game on. The Bucks’ TVs will also have the game on too. It’s way too hard not to stay away. But if you try, I commend you.
Best of luck to my Bucks and Packers fans.
