Rachel Watson Is Introduced To JoeAugust 1st, 2012
Devoted Joe readers might get quite a smile out of this one. Joe sure did.
This is a day at Bucs training camp that Joe will not soon forget.
Today at One Buc Palace, one of the all-time greats, Bucs icon Rachel Watson, was introduced to Joe.
Yes, that Rachel Watson.
What can Joe say? How cool was Rachel to tell Joe that she regularly reads JoeBucsFan.com and has no problem with Joe often referencing fantasies of her someday knocking on Joe’s door in the wee hours for unbridled pleasure.
It was odd. A representative of the Bucs media relations staff approached Joe, who was seated watching the final minutes of Bucs practice. “Joe, we have a celebrity here we think you would want to meet.” There were two women, one was Bucs cheerleader coach, Catherine Boyd. The second woman was carrying a child and even while wearing aviator sunglasses seemed stunning.
“You should know me,” Rachel said to Joe, or something along those lines. Joe didn’t recognize Rachel until she shed the shades.
Joe busted up laughing, as did Rachel, but it seemed no one got more of a reaction to this epic encounter than Woody Cummings of The Tampa Tribune, who nearly fell to his knees he guffawed so much.
Joe told Rachel he hoped he didn’t embarrass her much with his constant references to her. Rachel laughed, admitting she often reads Joe’s musings and genuinely seemed to get a kick of being a celebrity on this site.
And if you must know, yes, although much shorter than Joe envisioned, Rachel is just as ravishing in person as she is in front of the camera.
