Herb Kohl getting a ring was amazing

I'm in my 40's and I grew up on the Bucks of Don Nelson, Super Sid, Jack Sikma, and Ricky Pierce. Herb Kohl saved the Bucks for Milwaukee back then, and built the Bradley Center where my grandparents (now gone) had season tickets.

Seeing Herb Kohl getting a ring resented to him was just a culminating of everything we older Bucks fans have seen, struggled through, and hoped for but never got. Thank you to the current ownership for not forgetting our past and honoring it so publicly tonight

In the end, the Herb Kohl era was very unsuccessful ownership. Why?

Admittedly I was pretty much watching from afar during those years, but he seemed willing to spend and didn't appear to be overly meddlesome. Why didn't it work? I'm not asking to badmouth him either, he seemed to have the best intentions.

Tip of the cap to Herb Kohl and the Milwaukee Bucks

Another day, another inspiring loss. As the clock ticked towards the 2 minute mark and we were holding onto a 13 point lead, things looked bleak. It looked like our third win of the year was inevitable. Morale was low for everyone.

Well, everyone except for one person. Somewhere in an isolated mansion in Milwaukee dressed in a gaudy night gown and slippers, Herb Kohl slowly sipped on a glass of wine and reached across his decaying upper body to pat himself on the back. An ever-so-slight smirk spread across his face. A job well done. In that moment, he convinced himself that he was happy. He was the man behind a team that was a perennial winner. He glanced at the 8th seed plaques that hung from his wall as a reminder. If it weren't for him, the Bucks would've left the great city of Milwaukee long ago (It has river. It has lake.). With 2 minutes to go and the Bucks well on their way to another milestone victory, Herb turned off his television and crawled into bed. Soon after, he got lost in his thoughts and fell asleep to visions of Miroslav Raduljica and Gary Neal dancing in his head.

But this happiness was all just a facade. 8 hours later, he woke up to find the mess left behind from his Drew Gooden induced wet dream. As soon as he got himself all cleaned up, he realized that in the excitement of last night's big win over the powerhouse 76ers he'd forgotten to finalize the specifications for the casket he was ordering. (You see, Herb knew his time was soon. "Oh well," he thought. "This year's our year and I can die happy.") Herb told himself he'd take care of it later and walked to his porch to grab the newspaper, still dressed in his forest green silk night gown with red undertones and a large pimped out buck across the upper back. Reading about the Bucks victory would make up for his shitty morning, Herb convinced himself.

He immediately flipped to the sports section... "BUCKS LOSE IN OVERTIME". What. No. No. This can't be. Caron Butler had 38 points. Gary Neal had limited himself to 4 contested 3's with the shot clock still in double digits. Larry Drew had finally kept this one can't-hack-it-pantywaist named Yannis (or maybe it's Thomas?) on the bench where he belongs. Dismayed, Herb stared straight forward into the abyss and considered fast-tracking his casket order. A few minutes passed, and suddenly, Herb understood something pro

Hey r/wisconsin did you know that Herb Kohl is a co-sponsor of the Protect IP Act (the senate counterpart to SOPA)?

After the success Reddit and the internet had in swaying Paul Ryan, perhaps we can do the same with Kohl.

The bill's page showing his sponsorship: http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s968/show

Reddit's excellent FAQ: http://www.reddit.com/help/faqs/sopa

Herb Kohl's contact page: http://kohl.senate.gov/contact.cfm

Herb Kohl's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/herbkohl

Facebook page opposing Kohl's support: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Citizens-Opposed-to-Herb-Kohls-Support-of-the-Protect-IP-ACT-2011/343003562393618

I think we need to begin by all sending Mr. Kohl an email communicating our opposition to this bill. I also think that Facebook is a good, visible place to display our feelings on PIPA/SOPA. So, if you use Facebook please post on Kohl's page and 'like' and share the opposition page. Of course we should be using conventional media as well, so if you're inclined you could write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.

What else can we do?

Herb Kohl's response to my e-mail regarding SOPA. He's not backing down.

Dear Mr. X:

Thank you for contacting me about legislation in Congress to address online piracy and consumer fraud. I value the correspondence I receive from fellow Wisconsinites, and welcome this opportunity to address your concerns.

Federal copyright law originates from the Copyright and Patent Clause of the U.S. Constitution, which authorizes Congress to "promote the Progress of Science and Useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries." Our modern copyright law protects original works by allocating certain rights to their creators for a specific amount of time. As our use of the Internet has continued to grow, the number of websites we use has grown exponentially. In recent years concerns have been raised about websites pirating original content or deceiving users with counterfeit products, and whether our copyright laws can still adequately protect creators right to their works and the safety and security of American consumers who wish to purchase them online.

American businesses lose billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs to online piracy and sales of counterfeit goods over the Internet. While U.S. law can reach domestic websites that sell illegal counterfeit products, law enforcement cannot pursue websites owned and operated by foreign entities with domain names registered outside the U.S. To address this problem, on May 12, 2011, Senator Leahy (D-VT) introduced the "Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011," S. 968. I am a co-sponsor of this bill, which is known as the PROTECT IP Act. Our bill made changes to a similar bill introduced in the 111th Congress that more narrowly target it to only the most seriously infringing foreign websites.

Under S. 968, the Attorney General would be authorized to file a civil action in court only against foreign based websites that are "dedicated to infringing activities" and have no significant use other than engaging in illegal activity such as streaming pirated movies and selling counterfeit consumer products and pharmaceuticals. The Attorney General is required to notify the registrant of the Internet domain name, providing due process and an opportunity for him or her to respond to the allegations. Only if a judge finds that a website is dedicated to infringing activities and harms U.S. consumers and intellectual property owners,

Whatever you think of Herb Kohl, you have to thank him for being a great Wisconsinite and a true Bucks fan.

Here me out - I'm starting to believe that we have some of the best owners in the NBA. They are willing to spend, want to grow the fanbase, and are willing to make the moves to make us a great team. Over in /r/nba , it has been amazing seeing people predicting that the Bucks will finish the season with the 3 seed. Herb helped craft this vision - selling to the right owners.

So I say, thank you Herb, even if you tortured us during the sale process.
