Local Champ Sticks Up For Bucs

July 18th, 2019

Triggered by Bucs jersey

When it comes to sports, “this Joe” is very much a jingoist.

So it galled Joe that some British, JLo-looking chick had the nerve to give a Clearwater native hell for rocking Bucs gear. On American television no less!

Boxing champ Keith Thurman appeared on something called “Inside PBC Boxing” and straight-up got shamed by this woman Kate Abdo for wearing a Bucs jersey. Thurman replied that the jersey was custom made for him by the Bucs and he was proud to rep his hometown team.

Way to go Keith!

You can see the exchange on the Fox Sports show below. Joe would love to tell Abdo where she could shove her soccer ball.

Thurman faces Manny Pacquiao for the World Welterweight title Saturday night in Las Vegas. Good luck Keith!

    H could have at least admitted the jerseys look stupid while still supporting his team.
    Maybe then the Glazers would get the message that the uniforms suck.

  3. Dlavid Says:

    Right on Keith ! I wear my gear up here in Greensboro amongst all these stinking Panther fans with no apologies ! Hopefully the Bucs will give me something to go along with my loyalty this year … it has been a horrible experience for quite some time Sunday afternoons watching the Bucs on the NFL ticket ! Fire the cannons !

    Joe, she’s stupid hot and that accent only makes here even hotter. So, she gets a pass. Ha!

    sticking up for the bucs is the quickest way to loose credibility… outside of sapp and gruden’s glory year this franchise has been an embarrassment since day one. the ring of underachievement filled with back ups that sapp and selmon carried to 2 good seasons in 42 only cements how bad this franchise is…. you guys worship a bum who could not beat vince young in elementary school jeopardy… awful hard to take bucs or optimistic bucfan serious when they slobber over one year wonder has beens like they are in the same league as real nfl legions that had actual success for more than 1 year…

  6. DBS Says:

    So admits he did not buy that garbage to wear. Truth will set you free.

  7. Race to 10 Says:

    Idiot fans no wonder there is no positive news. Even if we do have a successful season this fanbase will find something to cry about.

    DB your a moron if your trying to say you wouldn’t wear it if it was custom made for you, if you would wear a free jersey which you would then just admit your cheap and be done with it. Last time I checked despite the hate for the Jersey there are many of them in the stands week to week. They aren’t our best because they cant compete with the creamsicle but no uniform in the league can

    Pac-Man going to knock this fool out glad he rep the Bucs but Damn lol

  9. gbobucsfan Says:

    Dlavid, fellow Greensboro dweller here! It’s nauseating to talk with Panthers fans!

  10. Bucsdelight Says:

    So she says, “You’re repping the wrong sport, what’s with the jersey, mate” and that translates to being shamed?

  11. 813bucboi Says:

    keith about to KO the old timer in the 6th round!!!!!!….book it!!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

  12. Couch Fan Says:

    Yea a whole lot of nothing there. She was clearly trying to be funny, nothing to be offended about. I would be more offended at some of these idiotic comments. If you are embarrissed to wear Bucs gear, you have no business commenting on this site because you are no Fan of the Bucs.

  13. DBS Says:

    WOW Race to 10. Your a big man calling fans names. Make stand taller than the rest of us.? No I will never wear that UGLY trash in any way. And yes I am frugal. That is why I have all the things I have.

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Hideous jersey!

  15. chris L Says:

    joe i appreciate that the guy is repping but to say she shamed him is ridiculous. your article made it seem like she chirped the bucs she just asked why he is wearing a football jersey playfully to start the conversation. why the hate on kate abdo?

  16. SCBucsFan Says:

    I agree with whatever she says

  17. Snook Says:


    “straight-up got shamed by this woman Kate Abdo for wearing a Bucs jersey”

    Actual quote:

    “You’re repping the wrong sport, mate. What’s with the jersey?”

    Sounds like innocent ribbing to me. Shamed? Not even close.

  18. Jim Says:

    I keep looking for a Bucs jersey but all I find is Saprissa and Liga Deportivo Alajuelense…

  19. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    It seems Joe is the only person “triggered” here. Jeez, she needs a soccer ball shoved into her a $$ for a little jab?

  20. July Joe Says:

    Never seen her before but she’s pretty. Thurman reppin Tampa is cool too and that dude can fight … I’ll take him in a unanimous decision to win but I don’t see a KO happening.

  21. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    She legit didnt mention the jersey, just the sport bwahahaha. She could diss our horrendous jerseys anytime though, dayum.

  22. MtBucsFan Says:

    Yea I wear my Evans Jersey all the time to work here in Montana. My boss is a die hard season ticket holding and russel wilson boot licker. It sucks because all the gear here is Broncos, Vikings, Packers, seahwaks, and a lot of Patriot fans. But one of my buddies from here I went to highschool with played for the patriots for a few years. Also played for the bucs one year. That was Dane Fletcher. Got to love montana towns. Not too many NFLERs from here lol.

  23. July Joe Says:

    Is it just me, or do you find it hard to be mean to pretty ladies? Like I see people just hate on Ivanka Trump and AOC because of their politics, but I think Ivanka is a stunner and I think AOC is just really, really adorable, so I have a hard time being mean to either … maybe I need to get in touch with my feminine side and stop being such a dude, LOL.

  24. Barbosa Says:

    “Triggered by Bucs Jersey” lol Joe, love the caption with the eye candy! These jerseys trigger my gag reflex too, Glazers go back to the SB era jerseys or even the orange creamsicles!

  25. Maze Says:

    She’s hot but her accent is terrible

  26. Joe Says:

    She’s hot but her accent is terrible


  27. Swamp Buc Says:

    actually, tmax, I would guess that the quickest way to LOOSE credibility would be to just untie the rope.

  28. Swamp Buc Says:

    what are you moderating this time?
    strange, but it’s your house not mine.

  29. Swamp Buc Says:

    ohhhhh yeahhhhhh! I have passed through the gates of moderation and it feels great! hahahaha

    She looks like Morning Cup material. Does she have Instagram? 😂

    Howdy MtBucsFan. I rock my Mike Evans Jersey here too!!!! Of course you know that Montana has Zero professional sports teams so everyone here roots for someone else. I am the only Bucs fan in my small town. Nice to meet you on these pages. Though I am thinking I might have met you a few yrs ago here.

  32. Ndog Says:

    I know everyone thinks I’m crazy but I think the fact that our jerseys are unique.

  33. BucAllNight Says:

    Just gained another fan… my brother loves boxing so he will be rooting for Pac and I got Thurman!!

    Let’s Go Bucs!!

  34. Jeffbuc Says:

    Finally watched the video read the article this morning. Was expecting some big deal she made. Joe you are going way overboard here. She just said a little wrong sport mate. Nothing about the bucs or anything else. But you got me to watch the whole video to see when this letting him have it about this Jersey happen. Spoiler alert it never happened. This is like a story my wife shows me and says can you believe she did that and I say did what I really don’t get what your upset about babe. She just said blah blah did t really say anything bad. Then I am told I don’t just don’t get it. So joe I think you need to listen to 620 today until the testosterone commercial comes on and immediately call that number and order the max dose. You lost some man points with this non story

  35. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That’s it? I watched that hat who video thinking she must have said something later…wow. Just wow.

    How long until the news season…I mean football season returns?

    ONE TIME!!!!!!!💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿

  37. Brownlee Says:

    DBS is a SOB – be frugal and troll elsewhere like Grinder, this is for real Buc fans who love them no matter what Jersey they are forced to wear
