Bucks fan writes hype song “Greek Freak”
MILWAUKEE – Fans are rallying behind the Milwaukee Bucks in a number of creative ways. A super Bucks fan wrote a hype song inspired by the team – and he wants the whole town to sing it.
It’s a catchy rallying cry from dedicated fan and musician Keenen Russell, who sings in front of a venue and for a team he loves.
“I put my heart and soul into these words. I’m waiting for everyone to hear it,” Russell said.

Russell wrote the song “Greek Freek”, inspired by the team and its star player Giannis Antetokounmpo.
“It represents triumph, it represents the skeptics, the people who don’t think we can do it,” Russell said.
Restaurant responds to ESPN hosts’ jab
For the skeptics, a Bay View restaurant offers the perfect menu. The Avant-garde has revisited a favorite; “The Milwaukee Dog” has become “The Terrible City”.
The move mocks comments from ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and other ESPN hosts who hinted that Milwaukee was a “terrible city” and later went back on their words.
“They gave us the nickname, we’re going to feed them that nickname,” Alex Elert said with Vanguard.
The beef hot dog is topped with cheddar, wiz cheese, and of course, cheese curds.
Despite what has been said, Bucks fans know what the team can do – and have no doubts how far the team can go.
“I’m saying we’re here and we’re going to continue and we’re here to stay,” Russell said.
Russell will be shooting a music video later this week.
