From the Bradley Center BMO Harris Bradley Center:

The Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce, the Bradley Center, the Milwaukee Bucks and BMO Harris Bank today announced a naming sponsorship by BMO Harris Bank that will expand the name of the building to the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The updated name will take effect immediately, with the BMO Harris Bradley Center name soon appearing on the outside of the building, on the scoreboard and other interior signage and elsewhere.

Tim Sheehy, president of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce had this to say:

“When we issued a call for Champions of the Community to help build a bridge from the Bradley Center to the future, BMO Harris Bank really stepped up. This sponsorship will have a big and important impact.”

Herb Kohl indicated that he’d be more aggressive moving forward in working to secure a long term home for the Milwaukee Bucks to stay in Milwaukee. Shoring up the Bradley Center and generating some more revenue out of it could be the first step down that path.

For those that are like me and have no idea what BMO Harris is, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. It’s a bank.

Jeremy Schmidt writes the Milwaukee Bucks blog Bucksketball. He founded it in January of 2009 because he hated his job. It’s like basketball, but with Bucks instead of basket. I know ... I’m sorry. He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.

    That’s great news for Downtown Milwaukee and all the sports teams using the BMO Harris Bradley Center.  There were actually a lot of businesses that stepped up and that’s why Milwaukee is a great city.  Herb Kohl has renewed his commitment to the Milwaukee Bucks and the City of Milwaukee.  Yahoo!  Go Bucks!

    Anyone watch Adventure Time?  There’s a character named BMO (pronounced beemo just like the bank says it).  Whenever I hear BMO Harris Bank I always think of that character…
