MILWAUKEE -- The Bucks are on fire, and all fans want to do is celebrate however they can, whether that's traveling to Toronto or right here at home.

Chants are echoing across the city as the Bucks head to Toronto.

So, who wants to go to Canada?

"We'll get right back on that plane and go to Toronto and watch the Bucks game for sure. Three in a row, four in a row," Wuerl said. "I have to work."

He was one of dozens travelers getting back from Florida at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport, who were ready to hop on another flight if it meant cheering on the Bucks.

"I think I blew all my money in Florida," Matt Blann said.

"I would love to go but I have to go back to work. Darn it," Scott McLerlon added.

Even here at home, there are a number of ways to celebrate as businesses like Robert Haack Diamonds in Greenfield offer a special refund if the Bucks go all the way.

Over at Off the Beaten Path in Milwaukee, records are discounted the day after a winning game.

Henry Dunsirn just saved $20 to $30 on vinyl.

"I've never seen the city this into the Bucks, like I've never seen this much hype around them," Dunsirn said.

However, don't fear - these businesses don't want to jinx anything.

"I think it's good karma if anything," Dunsirn said.

"It's just exciting to be a part of the excitement of the whole city," Off the Beaten Path employee, Nate Schroeder said.

It's not an 'if,' it's a 'when.'

"It's like how good is the deal? Not, is there going to be a deal?" Dunsirn said.

So whether or not you make it "to the North," there's energy here in the Brew City and it's intoxicating.

If you're contemplating flying to Toronto for the game - you can still make it.

There are a few flights that leave Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport Sunday morning, or if you get up really early, you can get there in nine hours by car.
