    So you listened to the podcast after blasting Ira for weeks? Hard to believe. Please share your Ira bashing elsewhere. Or at least pick a new reason. Thank you. –Joe

    You’d think guys in the media wouldn’t be so thin skinned.
    Not thin-skinned at all. There are many other places and forums to blast Ira. Joe suggests having fun doing it there. Steve Duemig used to talk about how stunned he was that the Tampa Bay Times would allow comments under their columns because the first one inevitably was someone insulting the columnist.–Joe

    Nope didn’t listen, I guess Joe supports flip flopping. Man Steve would be SO pissed at you! GUARANTEED! I listened to the Big Dog for his WHOLE career so you will NEVER convince me of anything different.

    Congrats on Cosmo!

    Growing up, we had a dog named “Kramer” bc his hair was like Kramer’s, and years later I found and took in a heavy set dog who earned the name “Newman”.

    Way to go Sage.

    And I agree, Joe’s not thin skinned. He’s fair.

  5. SteveK Says:


    Lighten up. Ira outdates the Bucs. And, he roots for teams to specifically frost his brother’s balls. It’s good stuff. How is Ira supposed to only be a Chief Fan when the Bucs weren’t even an option when he was a kid?

    They are honest. Don’t know why you are taking it so personal? I don’t hate fans of other teams. I welcome them. And Ira is legit so hold your horses and give the sage of Tampa Bay Sports the benefit of the doubt.

    I’d prefer honesty in my news intake, hence the love of JBF. Sorry they
    Pissed you off and hope you can let by gones be by gones.

    Please don’t feed it pseudoephedrine, or ibuprofen. They are toxic to dogs

  8. Joe Says:

    Thank you SteveK.

    Wow. I’ve expressed my appreciation in the past for Joe’s commitment to the principle of free speech. Even I am starting to marvel at your tolerance for some of the nastiness here. Baker act and restraining order seems more apropos. LOL

    Or the belt and then sent to bed without any dinner. If it was legal to do so, I’d send you a klonopin.

    Lighten up, Francis….it’s why God put a 30 second skip ahead option on your smart phone. When they boys dip into subjects that I’m not interested in (other teams, dog talk, etc…) I skip ahead.

    And as always…GO BUCS!

    I’m playing catch-up on the podcast. I don’t know if anyone will see this but I’ll type it anyway. I read somewhere that the actor who played the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket was initially turned down for the part. He went over to Stanley Kubrick and got in his face in the drill sergeant role and that’s how he got the part.

    Kubrick is one of my all time favorite film directors. I highly recommend A Clockwork Orange, if Joe hasn’t seen it yet. It’s a beautifully disturbing commentary on human behavior…
