Ward Hobbled; Caddy Pleased?

November 13th, 2009

Veteran NFL scribe eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune updated the Bucs small injury list today and a new name has appeared: Derrick Ward.

Ward joins wounded teammates Antonio Bryant, who continues to struggle with knee swelling, and Stylez G. White, who’s battling through a shoulder injury to keep his consecutive games played streak (40) alive.

“Ward’s got a knee tweak,” [Raheem] Morris said, “but I think he’ll be fine. He practiced all week and looked pretty good.”

Joe finds it awfully convenient for Cadillac Williams that Ward has come up with a tweaked knee, considering a busy day in Miami for Ward likely would cost Caddy a good bit of cash.

No, Joe doesn’t think there are any shenanigans at play. But this further illustrates why players shouldn’t be wagering five-figures on their personal stats.

    Whoever wrote this is a complete moron. To suggest that one teammate would wish harm or be happy from an injury is completely moronic. But it’s what I’ve come to expect from your reporting and writing skills.

    Joe here,

    Sorry, Dadada. Just trying to illustrate that Caddy left himself open to this remote possibility because of his wager with Ronnie Brown. Made it clear above that I don’t believe there is any foul play at all.

    Glad you think I’m a moron. You wouldn’t be the first. …Funny comment you’ve made about my reporting and writing skills, I’ve taken home some of the biggest hardware in the state. You won’t shake my confidence.

    Writing in 3rd person, linking outside material and constantly plugging shitty beer is the way to take home “some of the biggest hardward in the state”

    Your site is very fun to read for us Buc fans like myself. It funny how people think they can write better, why don’t try and go make there on page?

    Keep it up Joe, I visit your page frequently about 4-7 times daily…More than i visit myspace and facebook.

    As for your “linking outside material” who doesn’t? These idiots should know that those links are called sources that some people don’t find or visit your site for the info to make it easier. As for the “caybrew”, haven’t tried it but your humor is very tasteful.

    P.S. Writing in third person is the main reason why I personally like your page, very smart of making a simple read an even better read.

    So BucsFan, are you suggesting Joe should plagarize?

    If sourcing other people’s work and not giving proper credit where credit is due is not your cup of tea, Joe knows of another Bucs site that specializes in such practices.

    Thank you very much for your dedicated and gracious support. Joe is very, very appreciative.

    If you are fond of Heinekein or Becks, you will love Caybrew. All beers should be so “shitty.”
