Jon Brockman has figured out how Bucks fans eat

brockmanburger.jpgPeople are not healthy eaters in Wisconsin. Sure, there are exceptions (I hear you Madison) but I’ve seen it. I live in image-conscious Los Angeles, where there are great burgers, but creative variations of the Steve Nash diet — or just sushi — are the diet staples.

Visit my relatives in Wisconsin, and it’s a different culinary world. I’m not sure what Top Chef Milwaukee would look like but my cholesterol would go up just watching it. (Kevin could win that one, too, and I’d be good with it.)

Jon Brockman, the newest Buck, knows how to win friends and influence people in Milwaukee.

What you see to the right is the Brockness Burger at AJ Bombers (found and reported by onMilwaukee.com). That thing rocks. It is actually larger than Scott Skiles. Brockman helped create it.

And for every one of his burgers sold this week Brockman is donating $10 to the Special Olympics. Good cause.

Not sure that is going to end up on the Bucks training table, however. And Steve Nash does not approve.

    Relax there Bob. I spent 30 years living in Wisconsin and it’s very much like other states: A lot of svelte people under the age of 30 but not so many over 30. So why don’t you take a deep breath, relax, and not worry so much about what people think about America’s Dairyland.

    Sorry, Helin, you’re not an idiot. I do think Wisconsin gets a bad rap nationally. The internet makes me overreact.
