If you or someone you know can score the basketball, the Milwaukee Bucks need your help. Specifically, Giannis Antetokounmpo needs your help on Sunday for game 7 vs the Boston Celtics. If you’ve ever wondered just how important Khris Middleton is to this team (now that he’s officially OUT for game 7), you’re seeing it against a really, really good team in Boston who is doing a PHENOMENAL job of making things rough defensively. Get well soon, Khris.    We’ve seen this before Game 6 of the Bucks vs Boston series felt like a repeat performance of many the last…

If you’re reading this, it probably won’t shock you that Lambeau Field is ONCE AGAIN the highest rated sports stadium in America. In the BetSperts annual survey, reviews of the top 117 stadiums in America from fans via Google, Trip Advisor, Facebook and Yelp were averaged together (scale of 1-5). Leagues surveyed include teams from the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB & MLS. Lambeau is KING And wouldn’t you believe it? The home of the Green Bay Packers  was at the top of the list with an overall score of 4.93. PNC Park in Pittsburgh & Oriole Park at Camden Yards…

This week’s “Wickett ON Wisconsin” podcast was all about the Packers draft. SPOILER ALERT: I freaking LOVED it. From taking 2 players off THE BEST DEFENSE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY, to snagging a stud WR, to filling out the OL & adding depth, I think Gute CRUSHED the draft this year. I usually like a pick or two and dislike a few others but that’s not the case this time. For the record, my 1st choices included a Georgia Linebacker (Not Quay) AND I wanted Christian Watson!  To review the draft, I invited WSH’s Chris Buboltz to discuss each of…

By now you’re probably sick of every mock draft and every “expert” telling you what the Green Bay Packers are going to do this weekend in the NFL Draft. Well let me throw my darts at the board and tell you what I WANT to see the Packers do this weekend. OPTION 1: A MAJOR TRADE. DK Metcalf, AJ Brown or Terry McLaurin quality here and I’m willing to give up a lot as i’ve said in the past. I’m also up for giving away draft capital for Deebo Samuel. Because of the Davante Adams trade, I’m more willing to…

Are you sick of mock drafts? Are you done hearing the terms, “upside” and “high motor”? Well if so, then this ISN’T the podcast for you! (great sell job, right?) The NFL draft is down to double digit hours (single digit depending on when you’re reading this) and Packers fans are DROOLING to figure out – Will it be Chris Olave from Ohio State? What about North Dakota State’s Christian Watson? Will they even TAKE a wide receiver in round 1? (doubtful). What about a safety or a cornerback? Regardless, we’re all about to find out and in the 3rd…

Well we’re about a week out from the NFL daft and the Packers wide receiver room is still….meh. Yes, Sammy Watkins is IN but what can you really expect? 8 games? 10? 12, MAYBE? And what kind of production will you really get out of Watkins? The bar is low for me. I’m sure there will be a wideout selected on day one or day two of the draft but the Packers STILL need to add a big time playmaker. I mean… Randall Cobb doesn’t sound very confident here. On this week’s “Wickett ON Wisconsin” podcast, Sam Davel (WISportsheroics.com) &…

I was once in a friend’s kitchen when he asked me if I knew anything about Bitcoin. I did not. It was $6 per coin back then. SIX DOLLARS. He invested. I didn’t. I now see his social media posts all around the world. We all know what Bitcoin is going for these days. If you don’t know, it’s going for a LOT.  Obviously, I’m not “crypto guy”.  Do you know who IS “crypto guy”? Green Bay Packers Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers is a big time believer/user/fan of cryptocurrency. The 4-time MVP picked up an endorsement with CashApp last fall and…

Happy Opening Day!! As baseball fans, we all hear/say/discuss similar topics every season, don’t we? It’s always, “How’s the pitching staff? Who’s our closer? Who’d we bring in? Who’d we lose? Can we make a run?”. Well, Milwaukee Brewers fans, I’m here to tell you the 2022 season (outside of injury) comes down to one simple answer: Christian Yelich. I’m not sure if this is overly simplified or slightly dramatic but the Milwaukee Brewers CAN NOT win a World Series this year unless Outfielder, Christian Yelich contends for the MVP.  Let’s take a look at the rest of the pieces…

Packers potential second round targets

On this week’s “Wickett ON Wisconsin” podcast, it’s time to talk draft. And to do it, i brough in a draft insider: Jacob Morely from PackerReport.com. If you’re a draft nerd like me, you’re gonna want to check out his draft guide. It’s phenomenal. The Packers are in great shape in everywhere on their roster…except the wide receiver, of course.  And yes, I realize that the draft is still weeks away and a LOT can change but Trust me, Jake & I get into many of the possibilities of Green Bay moving a draft pick for an established NFL wide…

I’m lucky to have worked with Green Bay Packers legend, LeRoy Butler for a long time at 1250 “The Fan” in Milwaukee and this time on “Wickett ON Wisconsin”, I was proud to call up my friend for a chat.  Not only is LeRoy now a Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer, he’s FINALLY going to inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I was honored to have him on my podcast this week as we discussed the anxiety of being nominated but NOT making it into the HOF, the joy of seeing former Green Bay Packers Defensive Back,…
