NOW: ’It’s on my schedule’: Bucks superfans have no doubt team will win NBA Championship

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It will be an unforgettable experience to be inside Fiserv Forum Tuesday night, July 20.

CBS 58 revisited a pair of super-fans who'll be in the arena, and watching the game, just steps from the court. 

Jill Wiedmann and Christine Werginz have been Bucks season ticket holders since 1979.

Wiedmann said the Milwaukee Bucks will win the NBA Finals.

"It's on my schedule. It's on my to-do list. I am so excited to go to the Game," said Wiedmann.

She and partner Christine cheer on the team loudly -- and they really did in Game Five on Saturday, July 17.

"I am very loud," said Wiedmann. "I was screaming at the top of my lungs. When I got out my ears were ringing because the whole crowd is so noisy."

They gave CBS 58 a tour of their home earlier this month, showing memorabilia from more than four decades of love.

The couple say this group of men play like family.

"They like each other," said Werginz. "They play together. They talk together. You couldn't ask for anything better."

On Tuesday night, the pair will be sitting in the 100-level section.

They'll be with thousands of other fans giving the team some energy.

"With the fans backing them, that even pushes them up to a higher level, I believe," said Werginz.

The couple said the Bucks truly represent Milwaukee and its working-class spirit.

That's why they've stuck with the team all these years.
