This weeks Daybreak Doppler Dames theme is ‘The Wonderful World of Oz – Women from Australia’.

A Holly Valance (from Melbourne, Australia) sort of morning.

Watching the Bucks game last night I was cautiously optimistic.  Going into the half, I still felt that way.  Into the 4th quarter I was resigned to seeing one more game at the Bradley center and forcing a game 7, at the end I was ecstatic.  As Brew Hoop says in their recap here, the Bucks sure picked a hell of a time to get things together .

The Bucky Channel has more on the road victory which will insure a packed and loud crowd on Friday at the Bradley Center.

On the other side of the spectrum, the Brewers lost in extra-innings yesterday, extra-innings which should have never happened.  The Brewers had other opportunities to win (swinging on the first pitch Escobar????) but I stand by what I said to Mike, aka BigSnake Man & Chris yesterday – the game should have been over in the first place.  The Brewers Bar has your frustrating recap .

Meanwhile, TotalPackers.com thinks the Packers should take a look at bringing in Adalius Thomas  to help out at the outside linebacker spot, among other ideas.

So how many of you out there remember those small, green army men?

Back to the Bucks - Last night’s win really belongs to Scott Skiles.  How Skiles has been able to keep this team motivated and playing hard, especially after the loss of Bogut, is simply a thing of coaching beauty.  I know everyone will say the resurgence and return to relevancy for the Milwaukee Bucks lies with Brandon Jennings, and they would have a good argument for that as with maybe the exception of Phil Jackson, coaches don’t put butts in the seats. Without Skiles at the helm though, I don’t think you’d have seen a team come from behind and win on the road last night, Jennings or no Jennings.

    The Bucks have surpassed Marquette as the state’s most over-achieving basketball team. There are times I look at their lineup on the floor and I have to ask…”are you kidding me?” Skiles is the Coach of the year…hands down. Sign Ursan long term and soon.
