Bucs Fandom Gone Too Far

May 20th, 2015

Yeah, some folks think Joe is too much into football, eating, sleeping and talking football virtually 24/7. Joe could think of worse things to be consumed by.

But hey, this passion has led Joe to a great gig and a cool website that, apparently, many Buccaneers fans enjoy. Joe thanks his lucky stars daily.

Some, though, have taken their Bucs fandom just a bit too far. Joe came across a website by the name of “cover32.” It really isn’t much of a site, but the link showed up in Joe’s Twitter feed. Something about sports face tattoos.

Then Joe saw what lured him. It appears to be a mugshot of a Tampa Bay fan who has Bucs logos burned into his grill.

Hey, to each his own, but Joe has never understood tats. Maybe because Joe has been cursed for life with bad skin, and would give six figures to have good skin for the rest of his years on earth (yes, really), so Joe just doesn’t get why someone would scar up perfectly good skin. Besides, tats are ugly as hell.

Putting tats on a woman is the best way to ugly her up. It is gross.

Besides, the Bucs fan pictured above, dude must have been a special kind of drunk. Just how wiped out do you have to be to get sports logos fried onto your face? You’d just about have to be comatose from a bottle(s) of tequila to be this smashed.

Hey, Joe appreciates the guy’s dedication. But dude, Joe hopes you have an open-minded wife. Can you imagine going to a job interview with Bucs logos all welded into your noggin? Man.

    It’s a very unpopular opinion, Joe, but you (and I) are in the minority these days. I see more tatted up chicks and guys at the gym than I had ever thought possible. What a way to make somebody stand out in a bad way! And considering I won’t even wear jewelry because I get sick of it so fast, I can’t imagine ANYTHING I would want on my body for the rest of my life. Even the Bucs… If I did get a Bucs tat, that would be the recipe for instant relocation. Then the people with tats decide they don’t like them and we quickly find out the only thing uglier than tats are tattoos that were supposed to be “removed”. You want to decorate yourself? Wear a Hawaiian shirt. It’s a lot better than branding yourself for life with something you’ll likely be sick of in a few short years.

    That cannot be real

  3. Espo Says:

    Any bets on which of Joe’s loyal readers this is?

  4. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Barry looks exactly like I expected.

  5. Patrick in VA Says:

    Those look a lot like those press on tattoos. Just judging by the dumb look on his face, there’s a good chance it’s real but it looks like something he put on that morning on his way to the stadium. Not sure what the thing above his eyebrows is

  6. Patrick in VA Says:

    Besides, it’s the version of the Bucs logo that just came out so I have to think that someone isn’t going to be so beaming with Buc pride that they’re going to tattoo their face with the logo after the last few years we’ve had. I’ve been loyal, despite it all, but in these doldrum years that we’re in I don’t think anyone would get that put on permanently.

    That’s the guy who stole my car!!!

  8. bucs4lyfe Says:

    no one can be more angry than him about the bucs season last year

  9. Espo Says:

    I checked out that website. You’re right, it sucks. Upset to hear about Hovan though.

  10. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Damn Hawaiian, you stole my line. As soon as I saw it I though….Barry!

    He better hope that he never gets a job transfer to Philadelphia.

  12. Patrick in VA Says:

    You guys keep talking about job interviews and whether this guy is employable. Judging by the glazed over look in his eyes and just the overall dull look that he’s got going on, I can’t imagine that he’s going to need to worry about whether his face tats clash with his suit. Pretty sure this guy isn’t trying to gain any credibility within the C-suite.

    Those are temporary my son had some. He’s wearing a jersey probably got popped for drunk and disorderly at a game.

  14. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    Oh boy..social commentary in the off season….but hey..we got a running start pre draft with # 3….The Lengend of Lutz

  15. Ben Says:

    He is wearing a jersey. I would say almost certainly that those are temporary. In fact, I’ve seen those same temporary tattoos for sale.

  16. DEEnice07 Says:

    sorry Joe, but this article was about the worst. 1st off anybody with common sense knows those are fake tats. And 2nd it’s like you just wanted to write this article to express your feelings about tatted people. To each his own, but why all the negativity about tats. Don’t likem, than don’t get any, bottom line.

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’ve seen this pic before on another site of tattooed freaks, I believe the tattoo is real. Dumb huh!

  18. kraymuthaphukinglocz Says:

    I have a buccaneers tatt but not on my face

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    The tats look like the same press on tats that my wife had back in 2013.

  20. Capt.Tim Says:

    Nothing personal, joe- but I’ve seen pictures of both of you

    Those mugs are crying out for some facial tattoos! And tattoos every where is a thought.

    I mean, it’s not like they could make it worse . . And could be an improvement
    When you are adrift on the ocean, every life vest is a good one!!

    The guy in the photo is Robert9. The tat above his eyes is a series ogh

  21. WS99 Says:

    I have Pinocchio’s face tattooed on my pelvis.

  22. Capt.Tim Says:

    A series of 3s, in honor of his hero-

    Just kidding Joe- we all love ya
