MILWAUKEE -- Twenty-three very lucky Milwaukee Bucks fans won't have to worry about getting tickets to Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Fiserv Forum. That's because on Monday, May 20, Bango was riding The Hop -- and a few lucky riders received free tickets to that game!
When Bucks playoff tickets are on the line, you show up early. It was a line of thought shared by all the people who were riding the Milwaukee streetcar on Monday morning.
Inside the streetcar, word spread quickly that tickets for a playoff game were going to be handed out. Near the back was a father and his two children.
"Just to check out The Hop, how they decorated it, maybe grab a free T-shirt," said Charles Armstrong, Bucks fan and father of two. "And possibly a free ticket. We'll see. I don't know!"
"Oh, this is awesome! I'm going to go to the game. The kids got to see Bango. This is just an incredible day!" Armstrong said.
Everyone was happy for that dad -- even if they did not get tickets themselves.
"It's alright. I got a sticker on the forehead. I got a shirt. I'm OK. We're going to win in five -- and it's going to be fine," said one Bucks fan.
Game 5 is Thursday, May 23 in Milwaukee. Game 4 is Tuesday, May 21 in Toronto. Go Bucks!
