Don’t Mess With Homeland Security

January 27th, 2015

All day long, Joe will interview and talk Bucs football with literally dozens of NFL media types from across the country, former Buccaneers, NFL legends, and members of the Seahawks and Patriots rosters and coaching staffs.

Yes, it’s Super Bowl Media Day in Arizona!

Joe will deliver you various goodies later today and through the next few weeks.

But Joe’s night ended day got off to a rough start with foolish behavior in the wee hours this morning.

Joe thought he’d head over to the site of the Super Bowl in Glendale to snap a photo. Hey, the stadium’s all lit up and looks pretty cool.

Joe pulled off the highway, slowly drove down a closed road leading to a stadium parking lot and parked his car to get out for a photo. Joe sized up a couple of shots, and then walked a bit for a better angle. And that’s when Joe was surprised by some fine folks with the Department of Homeland Security, including one on four legs who was busy with Joe’s car.

Thankfully, Joe avoided a digital rectal exam and got away with a lecture.

Lesson learned.

Regardless, Joe is undaunted and will uncover all kinds of Bucs insight and nuggets for your dining pleasure.

    And Max knows even the SB coverage wont limit Joe’s constant cry for drafting Winston…..its all good, Joe knows who he wants and Max knows he wants Leonard Williams.

    Anyways, have fun man.

    Tell everybody the Bucs are on the brink of greatness. Perception is reality, right?

  3. Buc-O's 82 Says:

    Joe, you had better get Mariota’s autograph while you are over there before Tampa drafts him. Then you can post on your updates during the upcoming 2015 Bucanneer season ‘The first recipient of Mariota’s autograph in the Bay’.

  4. BK Says:

    This is code for there will be a Jameis update today along with a few quality articles from AZ.

  5. MariotaOrWinstonOrWalkdaPlank Says:

    They probably let you go when you mentioned you were a Bucs fan. They thought “this poor bastard is already suffering enough.”

  6. OB Says:

    Well Joe did you get the picture or not? Luke AFB is nearby, you should get some great shots of the fighters there.

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo thinks he would be treated much differently than Joe in Arizona because Pablo has been to Arizona once and had one of those rectal exams. What Pablo wants to know is if Joe liked it like Pablo did?”

  8. 87ForJameisNoMariota Says:

    Pablo probably came into the country via Arizona.

  9. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    I got a drone with JBF stickers on it I’ll be flying over the stadium….should get you some great shots Joe….

    Was this the crappy beer drinking, well done prime rib chewing Joe or the Joe that actually has good taste in red meat temperatures and flavorful barley pop?

  11. Dan Says:

    Know your rights, you have every right to take pictures, especially if you werent on private property. And you did not have to answer any questions.

  12. Lunchbag AL Says:

    Dan is correct, that is your right. However, saying yes sir, sorry sir, I understand, no problem, thank you for your service, is also an option these days.

  13. Robert 9 Says:

    just surprised you didn’t get tazered

  14. gatrbuc17 Says:

    LOL Pewter Report has us taking only 2 OLs in the whole draft, 4th and 7th rounds. AND they have us taking a WR and a RB in the 3rd and 5th respectively.
    Someone actually got PAID to come up with the dumbest mock draft in History???

  15. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    I am still saying neither QB is worthy of 1st pick…trade down twice if possible…ANNOUNCE the rebuilding !!!

  16. gatrbuc17 Says:

    I SURE hope someone up top is listening to you Joe Joe Fungi

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    With our 8 picks

    I have us taking QB, 2 Oline, DE, MLB, 2 WR (1 isKR/PR), S

    Could change after FA however…..

  18. gatrbuc17 Says:

    TBBF As you probably know I am a fan of trading the pick. IF, IF we do take a QB then I think it is Mandatory to get the next to Best OL Available.

  19. BucFanaticInAZ Says:

    I live in the barren desert of Arizona, is there a local watering hole where can find these former Bucs legends? Would love to shake hands and thank some Bucs greats for the good times.

    “It’s Joe’s daily nugget on the Jameis Watch, celebrating the best quarterback to wear No. 5 ever in the state of Florida.”
    Joe. please remind all of the NFL pundits of which you boast friendship with about last years daily nugget…. Johnny Football.

    The JBF minnions awaited one year for this chumpy response…. “He’s not a Buc now… I don’t have to own it”

    My oh my…. this year you are trying to force feed your beleaguered readers the Jamesis crap?

    Oooh Monty! … click me….click me.

  22. Joe Says:

    Joe. please remind all of the NFL pundits of which you boast friendship with about last years daily nugget…. Johnny Football.

    Sure will. Joe will also remind folks that Bill Polian and Gil Brandt wanted Johnny, too.

    Man, Joe hopes if the Bucs draft a quarterback, you haters will give him more than six quarters to prove himself. Man.

  23. Patrick Says:

    Johnny Manziel has played a total of two games in his career and people already think he’s a bust. Hilarious.

  24. Pickgrin Says:

    Yea Joe – know your rights and speak up for them. Don’t be intimidated into meekness by HS thugs. That goes for TSA thugs as well. You have a press card dammit.

    At least you got a decent picture of the front of the stadium all lit up.

  25. Buc-O's 82 Says:

    Joe, tell all the media that you actually work for the Deflatetriots and you were the one who let out the air of the footballs via order of Billicheat. Then we can see you on the tube wearing a JBF shirt.

  26. DB55 Says:

    I get randomly selected everytime I enter an airport, since 2001. And I don’t even have a beard, go figure. Hey, consider yourself lucky that you didn’t run into the az border defenders or you’d be posting updates from Taiwan somewhere. You know you’re kinda short and have that olive skin, you could easily be mistaken for an illegal. You ever seen “fun with dick n Jane”?

  27. ddneast Says:

    Such a nice picture, too.
    Let me get this right, you want to draft an unproven college QB with shaky character over a proven starter in the NFL who was already chosen to go to one pro bowl.
    A starter who fits perfectly into a pro type offense who thr

  28. ddneast Says:

    Who threw for 27 TD’s and 2 INT’s and knows how to read NFL defenses.
    Certainly sounds logical to me.
