“The Hulk Is My Man”

May 8th, 2012

In between brutal workouts, embracing lubricants and watching Little Mermaid reruns, everyone’s favorite eight-figure defensive tackle took 400 of his Twitter fans to see The Avengers the other day.

The bubbly Rachel Ramirez captured all the hoopla for Buccaneers.com. Here’s the video

Gerald McCoy said he wanted to embrace the family atmosphere among Bucs fans. It’s the second time McCoy has taken fans to the movies; this time it was on a grander scale and more formal. As for the movie itself, McCoy is a big fand and said, “The Hulk is my man.”

No word on whether Greg Schiano issued a proper protocol for eating popcorn or insisted that the two-drink rule apply at the theater.

Joe thinks all this player-fan bonding is very cool.

    I guess I should of followed him on Twitter. The avengers was a good movie though

  3. Bobby Says:

    I don’t think players should have any interaction with fans until they are pro bowl players…..fans appreciate aloof players who just do there job, get paid and eventually retire. If, however, you do make the pro bowl or eventually the HOF then and only then do you earn the right to twitter.

    @ bobby ?????? huh that is insane…..McCoy could make a difference in a kids life now ! get a clue about life and sports will you….

  5. Fatmosh Says:

    @Bobby What the hell? That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard…

  6. Adam Says:

    I’d comment about Bobby’s statement but I don’t like to make jokes at the expense of the handicapped.

  7. The Dutcher Journal (Pete Dutcher) Says:

    Oh good lord people…Bobby was making a joke. lol.

    You know…mocking Thomas? Sheesh Bucs Fans are slow on the uptake, lol. (me included)

  8. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Bobby’s comment has to be a joke. No one would write that in sincerity…. I hope.

  9. Fatmosh Says:

    Man, I hope so…

  10. Brown Bag Says:

    I wish McCoy could take a more flattering cell photo for media use. He looks like a complete douchebag in the one you use.

  11. eric Says:

    Hope he doesnt play like Dr. Bruce Banner.

    He needs to practice the tough nfl stare.

    Goober passed away……time to move on.

    I was lucky enough to be able to go. It was a great time. Gerald came by and said hello to everyone standing in line. Adam Hayward had the microphone and was the emcee as everyone walked into the theatre. (Adam’s a pretty funny guy) After everyone was seated, Gerald took the microphone and addressed the crowd for a few minutes. Spoke about how much appreciated the fans and their support and offered some thoughts on Junior Seau and urged anyone battling depression to get help, or to offer help to those in need. Call it a PR move or whatever, but I came away from the whole experience thinking that it was pretty darn cool for a Buc player to arrange for all of this for some fans.

  13. eric Says:

    Goober was a good actor.

    I remember the episode where he took a car apart and rebuilt it in Andy’s office. I think Gomer Pyle helped.

    Whoops off topic.

  14. Macabee Says:

    I like the 3 Gs, Goober, Gomer, and Gerald! Sounds like a young man enjoying the benefits of his good fortune. Can’t blame him for that. And then there’s football!

  15. raphael Says:

    @ bobby my bad….2.2 get a clue about life and sports will you….

  16. Rob Says:

    I was a lucky winner of tickets for the event and I must say the players were very outgoing and they made you feel part of the Bucs family or as they say Bucs Nation! Great job Gerald!

  17. Bobby Says:

    Yes…it was a joke. I was just making fun of all the people who complain that McCoy should stop tweeting until he does something on the field. Now THAT is stupid.

  18. Snook Says:

    Just think how great it’ll be when McCoy can invite these same fans to games this fall…. and he’ll even be able to sit in the stands with them by mid-season!!!

  19. stevek Says:

    LOL @ Bobby!

    Good one!

    McCoy is doing a great job of reaching out to fans right now, but when trainging camp starts, I hope he kicks it up a notch and becomes all business.

  20. Thomas2.2 Says:

    I appreciate all the attention.

    This was a nice gesture by Gerald, who by all accounts is a very nice young man. I have never criticized his character, I agree that his character is the kind we want.

    Unfortunately, this very nice person has not been a good football player for numerous reasons – spin it all you like but you will never win that argument with me based on the last 2 seasons. Who knows about the future? But the past is the past.

    If you believe that good things happen to good people then McCoy has a shot to be okay. I hope that he is. But all of the free movies for fans events will not make him improve as a football player – which is where I provide my analysis.

    I agree that this is of interest re the organization doing good stuff but McCoy’s flaws, unlike Talib’s, are not in the off-field department.

    Thomas, it’s not about winning an argument. Have your opinion. Just stop repeating yourself, and stop going out of your way to bash the guy. Your previous post should have ended after your first paragraph, but you just can’t do that.

  22. raphael Says:

    @thomas …there is no winning against stupidity….get a clue…cause you clueless

  23. thomas 2.2 Says:

    @Hawaiian Buc Says: “Thomas, it’s not about winning an argument.”

    I can tell that you feel that way. I would say the same thing if I previously argued: Rah was a great coach who would be here for a long time, that the Glazers were doing everything possible to win for the last 3 years, and that our defense was decent going into last year. Weren’t you one of the geniuses who predicted 32+ sacks from our D Line in a memorable debate last year.

    I argued 24 tops and overstated it. I remember some of you arguing with me that we had one of the best D Lines in the NFL going into last year. LMAO

    Here is where we will always agree: being a fan is not being giddy about everything that they do whether good, bad or indifferent. That is called a cult.

    Being a fan is being thrilled when you are winning, pointing out ways to get better, and when your team stinks – accept it and argue about how you think it should be made better. When misakes are being made, identify them.

    You girls who expect every fan to lust optimisticaly after 17-31 and no playoffs 2 last place finishes in 3 years are not fans in my eyes. Fans desire winning, not just having a team to follow. If you don’t care about the wins and losses and you just want to follow something, try music or film or something where they don’t keep score with someone leaving bitter because they lost.

    Gerald needs to step up and play like a reliable NFL starter, he hasn’t and that is the obvious, undeniable truth. Ask Warren Sapp, Ian Beckles, Brad Culpepper, Shaun King and legions of others who are honest about Gerald’s disappointing play and proclivity for injury.

  24. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    First of all, I didn’t predict any of that stuff. I don’t make predictions. I was wrong about Raheem (even though I never called him great). So what? You’ve never been wrong? Move on. There’s a difference between being negative sometimes and being negative all the time. You should learn the difference.

  25. Houseofbacon Says:

    I got to go to this with my wife. McCoy took a lot of time individually speaking with everybody in line, signing autographs, taking pictures. Mossis Madu, Adam Hayward and Adrian Clayborn also all showed up and were very social. One of the best nights out we’ve ever had.

  26. kgh4life Says:

    GMC is a cool guy but he looks like a goof ball in the photo. He is supposed be our dominant defensive lineman?

  27. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Seriously, can you ladies stop complaining about a stupid picture please!? My goodness, what the hell is wrong with you guys? Sit back for a second and think about how stupid your comment is. If you still don’t realize it, then I am so sorry, you are helpless. You guys don’t want him to tweet, get a pedicure, and now you don’t even want him to take a funny picture? Is he allowed to smile? How about laugh? God forbid he take some people out to the movies. I guess you just expect him to work out and grunt all day huh? Would you be happier if he stomped on people’s faces, or maybe he should go to the club and punch out women? Or maybe he, along with his entourage, should shoot and kill someone. Apparently, according to you idiots, that’s what it takes to be a great player. I truly can’t believe people can function in life being so stupid.

  28. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Oh yeah, and he is absolutely not allowed to give an interview. Interviews are only reserved for those in the hall of fame. I have never seen so much hatred and jealousy towards a guy that by all accounts is a nice guy, hard worker, and a pretty damn good football player (when healthy).
