Maurice Stovall’s Tight PantsAugust 12th, 2009
Not sure how many people have been to One Buc Palace for training camp but for those that haven’t, the set up is beautiful. Fans are so close to the field they can virtually touch the players. Whoever is responsible deserves a raise from Bryan and Joel, if not a promotion.
Joe just happened to have been chatting with Tampa Tribune beat writer Woody Cummings when a fan stood near us. It was clear the fan recognized Cummings (he certainly didn’t know Joe). Joe realized this and stepped aside so the fan could speak with Cummings.
The fan had an unusual query: He asked Cummings why Maurice Stovall wore such tight pants.
Cummings clearly was befuddled, not knowing the answer to such a riddle. Then the fan looked at Joe and Joe offered that he wasn’t aware of any player wearing tight pants.
Though Joe understands some people are into such things, Joe has never spent two seconds studying the lower body attire of any NFL player and has no desire to do so. Joe suspects his hockey-crazed sister Amanda may be aware of Stovall’s fashion statement.
Joe does confess to occasionally monitor the lower garments worn by select Bucs cheerleaders when they prance before the crowds at One Buc Palace.
But such, um, sights weren’t enough for Joe to prod a Bucs beat writer for additional information.
Speaking of which, what’s with the black tails (?) the Bucs cheerleaders are wearing on their skirts this year? These tails (?) annoy Joe.
