Pardon Joe for a quick timeout from Bucs football. Joe’s old friend, high school classmate and former high school football teammate, got tackled with ALS in recent months.
His family — and a good many others — put together an ALS awareness video, as August is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge month. Every August until there is a cure, the saying goes.
Please click on the video, and if you are so kind, forward it to your friends and/or family with your favorite social media device — Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, whatever. Doesn’t cost a red cent. Joe would really appreciate it, and more importantly, so would Joe’s friend and his family. Thanks in advance.

While he professed otherwise after the game, America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, sure seemed rattled by the pressure of the Browns’ pass rush last night.
Defensive lineman Desmond Bryant (1.5 sacks) and linebacker Chris Kirksey especially got to Jameis, and either he was unable to unload the ball or was pressured into bad throws and outright sacks. [read more]
