Morning Cup Of Joe

June 11th, 2019

Welcome to your Morning Cup of Joe, an eye-opener to help Joe’s readers ease into their busy workday with a few football links, wacky news and a pleasant distraction.

Distraction of the Day

Remembering a chair-throwing locker room melee in Pittsburgh following an underwear football practice. Yes, really. [The Athletic]

The All-Slow team. Bucs can’t even find good slow players. [SI]

With the exception of the socks, Joe thinks these Red Grange throwbacks are cool. [CBS Sports]

Tyreek Hill not out of the woods yet with NFL strongman Roger Goodell. [PFT]

Top five red zone targets. [NFL]

Iowa begins program to help former players not good enough to play pro ball adjust to life without football. [The Gazette]

Advice to repo man: You are just better off letting a cop miss payments on his rig. [NY1]

“This Joe” doesn’t have kids and never will. But if you have to lie to your kids that you are putting “frosting” on a salad to con them to eat their greens, don’t you have much bigger problems than your kid not wanting to eat a salad? [WTSP]

Top five bakeries in Tampa. Joe finds a glaring omission. And don’t get Joe started on vegan bakeries. Buncha pinko commies. Bet they don’t even like plastic bags. [WTSP]

    Joe- How does Alessi not make that list? For the record, I eat my steak raw out of a plastic bag lined styrofoam container with two straws!!!……..allegedly!

    Lovely dark-haired distraction!

    Try Florida Bakery at 3320 W Columbus Dr, Tampa, FL 33607. Open at 4;30am, fresh pastries and latin food…the whole range of good stuff. Whenever I’m at Advent Health Training Center, RayJay TSA, or St Joe’s, we take a break and go there. Awesome food, great prices. Authentic stuff.

  5. Magadude Says:

    I added “applause” for the Joe’s sentence I hightlighted above, but it didn’t make it in. Great line though. Don’t forget “straws.” I was in Boston two weeks ago and use those paper straws now…terrible.

  6. Razor Ramone Says:

    I’ll take Alessi’s any day.

  7. rhenry Says:

    Housewife Bakery on Armenia has been a Tampa fixture for decades. Their cold, pan pizza is to die for.

  8. Joe Says:

    rhenry:

    That’s a great name for a bakery.

    Magadude:

    Thank you. Good one-liner. 🙂

    Bucsfanman:

    Hahahaha!

    Why do the Bears get to change to different helmets for their 1936 throwback uniform??

    I thought that’s why the Bucs can’t wear their creamsicle throwbacks. Because the league said they can’t change helmets.

    What gives?

    Not sure but heard they are the same helmets, just with different decals.

  11. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    This Joe doesn’t have kids because he spends too much time at bakeries.

  12. TampaTown Says:

    We need a throwback uni game. Especially now that our own Bucco Bruce is at the helm. Stupid a$$ helmet rule

    Bars, maybe.

    Working on this site day and night, definitely.

  14. Buczilla Says:

    Not including Alessi bakery on the list was downright ignorant. Including a vegan bakery and not Alessi is borderline criminal and more than a little fishy. I checked out the “author” of the list and it turns out to be a company called hoodline that runs out of San Francisco. Apparently they run automated local stories derived not by personal experience, but by machine learning and data science.

    Anyways, I was bored to tears reading about them and it only served to confirm in my mind that the world is coming to an end. 😃

    Can’t disagree.

    Joe sometimes brings Alessi bakery items to his relatives in St. Louis. Let’s just say the kids aren’t so much interested in seeing Joe unless he brings strawberry bread (among other goodies).

    Joe’s lawyer loves the strawberry bread so much he wants to franchise the bakery.

  16. BuccoDav Says:

    I haven’t lived in Tampa for a number of years, but Alessi and Florida Bakery were awesome icons even then! This must be a joke.

  17. Sport Says:

    I haven’t had the same experience as some of you at Alessi. Its always disappointed, maybe it was over-hyped.

    Wrights Deli has the best cake, they don’t dabble in too many other offerings, but why bother when you can do cake like that.

  18. unbelievable Says:

    cops vs. tow truck driver… LOL.

    I’m actually on the side of the tow truck driver in this instance. Bet you those cops won’t face any disciplinarian action even though they 100% broke the law and illegally arrested that guy.
