Friday Night Massacre

It seems as though Bruce Almighty fell on his sword in defense of Chucky.

It seems Bruce Almighty fell on his sword in defense of Chucky.

October, 20, 1973, is best known in American political history as the “Saturday Night Massacre” because then-president Richard Nixon wanted special prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was investigating Watergate, fired.

Nixon’s attorney general Elliot Richardson refused to can Cox and resigned. Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus also refused Nixon’s demands and he too resigned.

Buccaneers history will show a similar episode for Jan. 16, 2009, the “Friday Night Massacre.”

The dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig, just dropped a bombshell during his opening monologue today on WDAE-AM 620. Duemig, who has great sources within the Bucs organization and was the first to break the news that Raheem Morris was the new Bucs head coach, stated former Bucs general manager Bruce Almighty took a bullet for Chucky when, against the Glazer Boys’ direct orders, refused to fire Chucky.

The Glazer Boys then fired Bruce Almighty and Chucky.

Joe was sad to hear of the demise of Bruce Almighty. Joe thought Bruce Almighty did a fantastic job with the salary cap. And Joe thought the Glazer Boys would just shuffle the deck chairs and make Bruce Almighty the VP of football financial affairs or some such title.

Instead, Bruce Almighty, like Chucky, is now getting paid to fish. Paid quite handsomely, as a matter of fact.
