THE PESSIMIST: Let’s See The EntertainmentNovember 11th, 2010
“We’re entertainers. We’re in the entertainment business.” — Raheem Morris
THE PESSIMIST is a diehard Bucs fan whose negative writings appear occasionally on JoeBucsFan.com. His views surely do not necessarily reflect those of Joe. However, Joe sure gets a kick out of them.
The head coach has busted out this entertainment line and philosophy oh so many times. Every time it makes THE PESSIMIST laugh, but for the wrong reasons. He did it again yesterday.
THE PESSIMIST would love to see Raheem Morris dance and sing, maybe even tell a few dirty jokes because the Bucs play at home needs a helluva lot more entertertainment value. It’s been anything but worth watching.
THE PESSIMIST feels like he’s gotten nowhere near his money’s worth buying tickets these last two years. It’s sickening.
THE PESSIMIST is here to tell Raheem Morris that it’s not good enough to squeak out a win Sunday against the heinous Panthers. Carolina is the worst team in the NFL and on a downward slide. The Panthers suck at 1-7. Jimmy freakin’ Clausen is starting on Sunday. Dan Conner is gone, and DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart aren’t practicing because of injury.
The Bucs need style points Sunday. They need to pound the crap out of Carolina. There will be nothing entertaining about another fourth quarter comeback against this crap team. Nothing.
Good teams on the rise clobber crap teams at home, especially the ones with loads of injuries, rookie quarterbacks, a coach on the hotseat and that have probably given up on the season.
There are no more excuses. If they’re entertainers, then Sunday is the easiest stage they’ll get the rest of the way.
No fans are paying $100 a ticket for fat cheerleaders or second-rate football. For THE PESSIMIST, the win is meaningless this week. The entertainment is everything.
No amount of spin and Rah-Rah from the head coach will convince the Bucs they’re a good team this week if they can’t bury the Panthers by three scores.
