Maybe “Packers” Fans Shouldn’t Be Calling Other Teams Gay

When Green Bay traveled to meet the 0-7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers the general opinion was that it was going to be a cakewalk. Instead, the Bucs showed some intestinal fortitude and ended up beating the Packers to earn their first win of the season. I bet that this well-dressed Packers fan was especially disappointed.

I will say, it’s a bit surprising to see a supporter of the “Packers” making a gay joke about the OTHER team, after all, Green Bay is named after the MEAT PACKERS…

Did Anyone Get the Number of the Train That Hit Him

Sunday’s Panthers/Buccaneers game wasn’t must-watch TV for most NFL fans, after all, who wants to watch misery? If you didn’t see the game though you probably have no idea about the pummeling that Panther Dante Wesley gave to Clifton Smith during a punt return. Smith gets knocked unconscious, Wesley sparks a mini-brawl on the field and then is ultimately ejected from the game.

Football!

Tampa Fans 100% Not Classy

After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers “honored” Mike Alstott by retiring his jersey and reminding him that he has been a part of a dysfunctional, idiotic franchise because they weren’t able to figure out how to put a properly spelled uniform on him, you’d think that would be the end of the story. But, it turns out that Tampa fans are just as douchey as the organization. For attending the game, fans were given a special Mike Alstott bobblehead. Fans were so touched and impacted by this that DURING THE GAME they were putting the bobbleheads up for sale on eBay. Now that’s celebrating a true Tampa “legend.”

Tampa Honors Mike Alstott Through Typos

While smart people were paying attention to the Red Sox/Rays battle, Tampa fans were split, with the Buccaneers playing on SNF last evening. During halftime, the Buccos retired former fullback Mike Alstott’s jersey, a truly classy gesture to a gentleman who, by all accounts is a very classy man. To show their love and appreciation for all of Alstott’s years in service to the Bucs, to show their respect for all the times he played hurt, to honor his many rumbling touchdowns the Bucs presented him with two of his uniforms framed. Maybe someone should have spell-checked them before they went under the glass though…

Very classy Tampa.

UPDATE:

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Buccaneers PURPOSELY misspelled Alstott’s name because

In Alstott’s first season, 1996, his jersey had his name misspelled for each of his first two games before the error was finally corrected. So, in commemorating the past, the Bucs decided to dot all the “i’s” but leave off one “t.”

Ok, so it’s not a COMPLETE screwup, instead, the Bucs are honoring how their team has HISTORICALLY screwed things up and want to commemorate THAT. It’s amusing but doesn’t inspire much past or future confidence in the team.

The Ladies Love Longoria

Sure, Evan Longoria had an errant throw that directly led to the winning run in last night’s ball game–although I firmly believe that Pena should have received the error there, the ball bounced in front of him enough for him to readjust and catch it, he’s the one who should have gotten the error–but he has plenty of exciting other things going on. For example, he reportedly has a hot girlfriend.

Longoria has been spotted at a University of Southern Florida football game with a quite attractive lass. (Video HERE) Some sleuthing by the gents over at Sports by Brooks and they think they’ve identified the mysterious young lady, she’s Jaime Hanna, by day a a dental hygienist, on the weekends, a 2 year veteran of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleading squad.

Now, I’m not 100% they are the same lady, but hey, cheerleader photos right…
