"Freeway is a Milwaukee legend. Any sports game, but especially Milwaukee Bucks, Marquette Warriors...err....Golden Eagles, UW-M basketball games. At some point during the game, Freeway will be spotted on the Jumbotron and will be dancing himself silly in the stands. It's amazing. He's a sweet and innocent guy, and sometimes unaware of his legend. Every city has one of these guys or gals. Los Angeles has Angelyne. San Francisco has Frank Chu...who's yours?"
