Standing in the penthouse - the highest point you can access inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center - and gazing down about 13 stories through the metal grate beneath your feet, the view down to the Bucks playing floor is stunning. For some it might be vertigo-inducing, but the view made me philosophical about Milwaukee's pro sports arena, which is unlikely to survive more than a few more years.
Sesame street live
As the Sesame Street Live years begin a slow decline for one kid, another one has just come completely into the zone. This year, we'll be front and center when Elmo and Co. bring "Can't Stop Singing" to the BC.
We tried to get an interview with Elmo in advance of "Sesame Street Live," which lands at the Bradley Center this holiday weekend, but the furry little fella was incommunicado. Instead, we talked to actress Leora Greenburg, who -- don't tell the kids -- plays Elmo in the show.
Although I had never pictured myself at a "Sesame Street Live" performance, I'm now a veteran of two, and soon three, shows. That makes me one of more than 50 million people who have witnessed these great characters on stage.
Officials at the Bradley Center unveiled initial plans for the building's 20th anniversary. The highlight is an appearance by "Walking With Dinosaurs," which hits the venue Dec. 5-9.
