Bucks taking the T-shirt cannon to next level with cold-weather gear

Friday January 9th, 2015

At 19-18 on the season so far, the Bucks aren't off to a bad start by any means, but they still need to keep their fans extra happy. The team's newest promotion should help accomplish that.

The Bucks announced Friday that they've partnered with cold-weather specialists Weatherproof to utilize their well-known triple-barrel t-shirt shooter, the most powerful t-shirt gun known to man, to fire off such clothing as long-sleeve tees, down vests and jackets that sell in stores around the $100 range.

Team president Peter Feigin seems pretty excited about what the Bucks are offering their fans.

"We're so excited to see how this enhances our game presentation," Feigin said Thursday to ESPN.com. "We think this is a great way to literally warm up Bucks Nation and thank them for being there."

You think Feigin is excited? How do you think Bucks fans are feeling right about now? Pretty soon we know they're at least not going to feel as cold anymore.

The promotion begins with Friday's game against the Timberwolves, and it couldn't come soon enough -- temperatures are supposed to reach -10 degrees on Friday night.
