"Bogut . . . bought 100 lower-level seats for every home game and gave them to fans who he was certain would raise the decibel level"

The result was Squad 6, a wild cluster of standing, chanting and screaming fans decked out in wigs, sombreros and even a man brandishing a wrestling-style championship belt.

“I thought it would be better just to get an atmosphere created in there,” Bogut said. “It’s only 100 people, but the noise they make sounds like 1,000. It gives us some energy to feed off.”

The Bucks’ staff and Bogut, who wears No. 6, held three rounds of auditions for fans wanting to join the section. The first two were in October before the start of the season and the third was held outdoors in the cold last Sunday.

Skeleton Graphics for Great Britain's Olympic Team

Skeleton graphics for Team Britain by Robin Howie. This weather graphic will be on the bottom

This rejected design features weatherman Michael Fish:
He became a subject of infamy in the wake of the Great Storm of 1987; a few hours before the storm broke, on 15 October 1987, he said during a forecast: "Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way... well, if you're watching, don't worry, there isn't!". That evening, the worst storm to hit South East England since 1703 caused record damages and killed 18 people.
