Hey everybody! Extremely late once again on this post -_-, but it is NBA playoff time!! I was in attendance for game four of the Bucks vs Bulls series, which was INCREDIBLE!!!!! Amazing game throughout all 48 minutes and could not have ended in a better way with the buzzer beater.

Before the game started, I graphed as usual. It was a very successful night despite forgetting my floorboards at home. On a sheet of game notes from a Bucks and Bulls game earlier this season, I got three Chicago players. Tony Snell, Mike Dunleavy, and Doug McDermott. All of these Bulls players were extremely nice.

I got two other autographs in addition to the other three. Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol! Both of these players are putting together great careers and I was really glad to get their autographs! Pau was my 300th autograph since i started keeping track since last April!

It was a fantastic night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Thank you guys for reading! I will be attending tomorrow night's game as well! Go Bucks Go!

NBA Regular Season Is Over :(

Hey everybody! I am sorry that I have not been blogging a lot recently. School has kept me really busy. I have been meaning to get back to blogging but with mid terms coming up, I wanted to end the quarter on a high note. I am going to make this "Comeback entry" short and sweet as I have another Chemistry Test to study for tomorrow!

So anyways, the past month of graphing was actually great. The highlight was definitelyagainst the Golden State Warriors. I got one Steph Curry on a 8x10, and a Curry/Klay Thompson signed 11x14. I also got a few others at that game too.

I am going to jump ahead here to the last two home games of the Bucks regular season. The first was against the Brooklyn Nets. That was the game when we clinched the playoffs! I was extremely excited. The final game was vs Boston. At the ends of the game, all of the Bucks started signing mini asketballs and throwing them into the crowd! I got a ball signed by Tyler Ennis and OJ Mayo, two guys who have been really nice to my aunt, cousins and I during this NBA season.

Over this past month, I also got a few autographs of the bigger Bucks players and legends. I got three total signatures from Giannis Antetokounmpo, two from Michael Carter Williams, and two from Jason Kidd! Also, I met Jon McGlocklin, Vin Baker, Michael Redd, and Bob Dandridge! I did not have anything with me for them to sign, but they did take pictures with me on my Snapchat and signed it on my cell phone with their finger! They were all extremely nice and I was glasd to meet these famous Bucks legends.

I will not be going to the game Thursday, but Saturday is one that I will be at. I am really hoping that that game will not be the final one of the season, as I want to see us in the second round! Go Bucks Go! Until next time, thanks for reading!

3/10/15: Pelicans And Bucks

Hey guys! So yesterday was the big day. My two favorite teams battling each other in what turned out to be an amazing game! I got home from school around 3:00 PM. After printing out my pictures and doing my homework, my aunt picked me up for the game.

My goal for today was obviously Anthony Davis, with him being my favorite non-Buck, but he did not even come out of the tunnel while people were in the arena. Plenty of people signed. Not as much as usual, but it was still a good number. I got a 4x6 of Tyreke Evans signed, a 4x6 of Eric Gordon, and a floorboard signed by Jeff Withey. That is all I got during the game, but again. If I get one autograph, I am happy with my day.

I was really excited for the game. Honestly, I had no clue who to root for! I wound up rooting for the Bucks towards the end, even though they did not get the victory. At halftime, my cousin and I walked through the tunnel to the Palermo's Courtside club so she could get a hot dog. On our way back, we turned the corner just as Anthony Davis came walking out of the locker room! I gave him a fist bump and said, "Good luck Anthony! You/'re my favorite player and I hope you guys make the playoffs!" He replied by thanking me and saying that he appreciates the support.

After the game, my aunt, my two cousins and I went to graph by the parking lot for the first time. My dad paints custom helmets, which are honestly the most amazing work on a helmet that I have ever seen done, and he made one for me to try to get signed by Jason Kidd. I have been trying to get his autograph at the games for a long time now. He drove by and got stuck at a red light. I ran up to his car window and got his attention. he waved my over to the other side and recognized the helmet. He smiled and was happy to sign it. I also met Michael Carter-Williams for the first time!

 I was really excited about the day I had with graphing, even though it was not a day with quantity. I will hopefully be graphing the Orlando Magic tomorrow night. If not, I will be graphing my next game next Wednesday with the San Antonio Spurs. Thanks everybody for reading. Tell your friends about my page and keep following please! Thanks guys I appreciate it!

Hey everybody! My name is Zach, and this is my blog.

I got the idea for this blog a few days ago. My aunt and I are huge Bucks fans, and with our season tickets we like to get autographs at the games. I started getting autographs on a regular basis at the beginning of the 2014 MLB season. I enjoyed doing it a lot at Miller Park. Being able to meet your favorite players, you idols who you have looked up to for years. The autographs are my way of remembering how I met them. I want to share my life in this hobby with you guys.

I wish I could have started my blog earlier in the year. Towards the beginning of the NBA season. The adventures that have come within these last five months and the people that I have met while getting autographs make me a lucky kid.

Yesterday, the Bucks played the Wizards at the Bradley Center. As usual, my aunt picked me up and we headed downtown to get ready for a fun night. A Bucks legend, Bob Dandridge, was having his number retirement ceremony at halftime. I was hoping for a chance to meet him that night so when I downloaded pictures to print out for the game, I made sure to get one of him too.

Before the game, we waited in our usual spot hoping to get some autographs. I wound up getting a few guys to sign before the game. It started with Jared Dudley, He is one of my favorite players and it is always exciting for me when he signs. I also got Zaza Pachulia that night. From the Wizards side, I got a few guys and I am pretty happy with it! Drew Gooden signed for everybody in his return to Milwaukee. Also, I had a magazine of John Wall, the Wizards all-star point guard, and he signed it! So I got a total of four autographs before the game. It was not a ton, but I am always happy with even one autograph.

The game was exciting throughout the whole four quarters. It felt like a playoff atmosphere. The crows was energetic the entire time and both teams played like it was win or go home. After coming off of a four game road trip, where we could not successfully win a game, we exploded here at home. We beat Washington by a final score of 91-85.

After the game, my aunt and I took a seat for ten minutes before leaving. We always like to wait for the crows to disappear so it is easier to get out. Well as we were walking out, I noticed some commotion to my left. I looked in that direction and found Bobby Dandridge! I was super excited and asked if he could sign the picture. He was happy to do so. I said thank you and congratulated him on his number being retired before he got on his bus.

Tomorrow, my second favorite team, the New Orleans Pelicans, come to town, My mom's side of my family is from New Orleans so I like all teams from down there. I am really excited for it. More than any other game. I will post again either tomorrow after the game or Tuesday after school. Thanks for reading guys!
