I Gave My Mom A Pop Culture Quiz, And Here Are The Results

GOAT really stands for "Get On A Train."


Most mothers are self-proclaimed "cool moms." They think they could easily hang with their kids' generation of music, fashion, and media. I decided to put this confidence to the test by giving my own mom a pop culture quiz complete with current lyrics, phrases, and references. Here are her hilariously misinformed answers:

1. Fill in the blank: "thank u, next" by Ariana Grande

Thought I'd end up with a lot of money

But he wasn't a money maker

Wrote some songs about bein' rich

Now I listen and cry

Even almost got a lottery ticket

And for that, I'm so thankful

Wish I could say, "Thank you" to my kids

'Cause he was a handful

2. Fill in the blank: "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift

So it's gonna be Christmas

Or it's gonna go poorly

You can tell me when it's time to open gifts

If the gifts were worth the trouble

Got a long list of people

They'll tell you thanks

'Cause you know I love the holidays

And you love the good food

3. Guess Who: What is the name of the famous male singer known for his smooth dance moves, who is also a judge on "World of Dance?"

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
