Happy Fourth Of July!

July 4th, 2013


Joe is a summer kind of guy. It cannot get too hot for Joe. In fact, you will never hear Joe whine about the heat. Winter sucks. Summer is the opposite: Fun, water, beach, cold beer, scantily-clad, well-tanned frauleins and a harbinger of the coming football season.

What the heck is there not to like?

The Fourth of July is like Christmas, Thanksgiving and St. Patrick’s Day all rolled into one for Joe. Brats, chicken, copious amounts of alcohol, the beach and fireworks makes Joe feel like a little kid.

Joe hopes all of you enjoy Uncle Sam’s birthday today. Joe knows Curly’s ready to throw down some brews.

    Happy 4th joe thanks for the laughs.

    Remember everyone backing down some brews today raise one up for all the troops past and present. Regardless of your politics they are the reason for our independence. Also thank the inventors of thongs, rock n roll and the monks who brewed the nectar of the gods BEER. And one more the wet t shirt contest

    Realist try and have a positive day!!

    Hot weather sucks. Humidity sucks. Sweating your balls off as soon as you walk out the door sucks.

    And this is why, among many other reasons, I live in Seattle, not Tampa.

    Happy 4th Joe!!

    Once again, let me say “Thank You” for your efforts over the last few years! I’ve been visiting this site from nearly the beginning, and it’s been a great ride.
    For me, this is the best Buccaneers site there is, hands down. To be able to access any number of online articles from one website, in addition to getting a passionate, intelligent take on those articles, is a boon to this Bucs fan.

    Be well, and thanks again. Cheers!!

    Thanks for the well wishes, fellas. And a special shout to Sgt. Mike, a commenter here since 2008.

  8. Curmudgeon Says:

    I’ll take overcast and rain over 90º heat and 95% humidity… It’s really not as bad as the reputation. We get plenty of sunshine in summer. November and December suck. The rest of the year is kinda mixed.

  9. Joe Says:


    Thank you very much for the extraordinarily kind words. What you wrote is how Joe got started: A centralized place to learn Bucs news in addition to commentary.

    Joe is humbled by your thoughts and support. Thank you.

    Sgt Mike :

    Joe cannot show you here but he is lifting a cold beer in your honor. If not for valiant soldiers like you — Joe’s dad taught him how heroes don’t come home — Joe couldn’t drink like he did today.

    Joe cannot explain how grateful he is for guys like you. Thank you!!
