My Personal Breakdown Of The Bachelorette's First Episode

My Personal Breakdown Of The Bachelorette's First Episode

Let's Do The Damn Thing!

Y'all. I have been counting down for this day. Becca's season of The Bachelorette is finally here! After Arie (puke) broke her heart for all of America to see, we can't help but root for Becca to find true love. Monday night I sat down with wine and pizza and wrote down my thoughts on the guys that will join Becca on her journey to find love. Here is my breakdown of the guys that stood out to me the most in episode one *SPOILERS AHEAD*:

Jordan – Male Model

I cannot take this dude seriously. "I'm missing out on sharing myself with someone else." How selfless of you to finally share yourself with someone. When he arrived at the mansion he couldn't stop talking about his outfit. My favorite quotes were: "I wanted Becca to hear the tapping of my shoes. It's like the harping of a gentleman" and "I spent six hours hand selecting everything." One of the contestants said he is like the real life Zoolander... that is 100 percent accurate.

Joe – Grocery Store Owner

Becca might not have seen potential with him, but all of Twitter is obsessed with him. Joe you deserved a chance! Maybe you can *produce* some love in paradise

"I will blow her nose away." What does that even mean? I have to give him mad props though cause after he met Becca she mentioned that he smelled really good. Did they pay her to say that or is he really that good of a colognoisseur???

Kamil – Social Media Participant

First off, since when is being a social media participant a job? Second off, I can't believe he made Becca walk to him saying relationships are 50/50. They are 100/100, Kamil!!! Then he had the audacity to take a few steps back and say 60/40? Becca was like nuh uh, Kamil. Maybe the van met him 60/40 when he was sent home.

Jake – Marketing Consultant

Becca knew him already. They've met a couple of times, and he couldn't even remember the first time they actually met! Becca sent his a$$ home real quick and I love that. Homegirl isn't playing any games! Sorry, your 15 minutes of fame literally only lasted 15 minutes.

Chris - Sales Trainer

It is night one and this guy is already stirring the pot. He has good intentions, but we all know that the person that puts their nose in everyone else's business never makes it far. Have fun on the two-on-one date. I wonder who he will be up against?

Garrett – Medical Sales Rep

The minivan was hilarious, plus he got the first impression rose AND kiss! JoJo said to keep an eye out for that cause the past three seasons of The Bachelorette the guys who won the entire season also got the first impression rose and kissed the first night. If that's the case this season, then I approve!!! But *here's to hoping his Instagram account was actually hacked and he didn't like those controversial pictures*.

All in all, Becca has a great group of guys. I can't wait to see how this season plays out, but most importantly I can't wait to watch "The MOST DRAMATIC season in Bachelorette history."

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, 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.
