Donovan Smith Talks “The Goat Coming To Tampa,” Jameis & More

April 3rd, 2020

Welcome to a gargantuan spotlight, Donovan Smith.

Rondé Barber will be watching closely.

Smith is like most Bucs fans. He’s excited about Tom Brady joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He talked to WDAE radio yesterday.

Joe’s got highlights the Bucs’ left tackle:

*Smith, 26, questioned whether early Brady-to-the-Bucs reports were real, then his phone blew up when Brady was signed from people he hadn’t heard from in ages. “Hey, you got The Goat coming to Tampa. So, you know, I was pretty happy about it.”

*Getting on the same page with Brady is critical, even if that’s means online meetings during Coronavirus isolation, he said. “That’s where you gotta be a pro, roll with the punches. … Get in the film room and your books, and stuff.”

*No surprise that Chris Godwin handed over his No. 12 jersey without hesitation.

*”Expectation is obviously raised” on the Bucs, said Smith, adding that everybody will bring their A-game.

*On Jameis Winston: “Oh, man, you know I have nothing but praise for Jameis. … We’ve been through a lot, through the past five years. He’s a hard worker, he’s a great teammate. That’s my man. Obviously, it felt weird. And I shot him a text and told him that. I just wish him the best in wherever it leads him. I’m not sure. I’m not a GM. I just wish him many blessings and wherever he gets picked up, they’re getting a great guy, a great teammate, a great player and a great quarterback, the hardest worker I think I’ve seen.”

*Coronavirus has kept Smith glued to Netflix, he said, adding that he’s been watching a lot of Love Is Blind with his girlfriend. His workouts have been disrupted, he said, but he’s investing now in a home gym and is shooting a lot of hoops in the backyard.

    I believe that DS76 was getting tired of blocking for a QB that held on to the ball for 5 or 6 seconds.
    Brady will get the ball out quick. Making easy work for the OL

  2. Buddhaboy19 Says:

    I have to say, I rewatched that Bucs / Eagles championship game, and Ronde Barber put on a hall of fame performance in that game alone. He was absolutely everywhere.
    I love Ronde and I consider him fringe HOF, but if every voter for the HOF watched that game in full, its a no brainer.

    He made every play, truly amazing performance.

  3. Adrnagy Says:

    There you have it … marshmellow is what 9th or 10th teammate to come to praise Jaboo.
    And who said jameis was hated in the locker room ?

    Sb says “I believe “ that ds76 ….. you Live believe a lot.

  4. Says:

    TB12’s new BFF!

  5. Buddy Says:

    That guy is gonna get Brady killed!!!

  6. Youngbucs Says:

    Trust me Jameis was not liked by all his teammates for performance on the field.
    That does not mean the hated him as a person. There’s a difference.

  7. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Very true Youngbucs.

  8. stpetebucsfan Says:

    What youngbucs just said. I think that’s true of a lot of posters here as well.’

    Many..probably the majority liked him well enough personally we just ran out of patience on the football field.

    Personal GREAT NEWS!!! I just got the call and my Covid test came back NEGATIVE!!! Yeehaa And it was only 8 days not two weeks.

    Once the test becomes plentiful and with a quick turnaround that will be a huge first step.

  9. Buddy Says:

    I always had mad respect for JW, however he held on to the ball too often making the line work harded. We wont get that with Brady.

  10. Smashsquatch Says:

    Dude, get off the coach, stop watching Netflix and get that home gym finished ASAP. No excuses to relax workouts just because you can’t get to a local gym or One Buc Place. This is exactly the attitude we see from D. Smith on the field when he loafs especially if a play is extended. Get motivated!

  11. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Great news

  12. JGhotier Says:

    What’s up with the Derrick Ward Jersey for your logo?!

    Note: I know it’s not Derrick Ward. Just to clarify

  14. gofortheface30 Says:

    Hmmm – ive never been so happy to be single during this quarantine so I don’t have to subject myself to shows like love is blind day over day. Lift weights in garage, Naps, Grilling steaks, and Eastbound and Down Reruns. Its pretty awesome.

  15. Bucsfanman Says:

    Why wouldn’t he be stoked?! Why wouldn’t any Bucs “fan”?!

    stpetebucsfan- Tip of the hat! Good news!

  16. Mike28277 Says:

    Youngbucs: agreed. Watching the teammates on the sideline is all you have to see.

  17. Bobby M. Says:

    Here’s what “pros” don’t like…..they don’t like exceptions made for accountability. If Peyton Barber missed blocks or fumbled at the rate Winston threw INTs….he would get benched. Yet Winston gets a pass….for 5 yrs. Pros don’t like losing….particularly when they know they have the talent to compete and win but keep getting blindsided by Winston’s knack for TOs. Pros don’t like a player that’s the biggest liability being the highest paid on the roster.

    That’s what pros don’t like….those guys were the best of the best in their respective high school and college days. At the pro level they have to produce results or they lose their jobs….except if you were Winston. Pros hate that and will never say it, but that’s reality. Winston was probably a likeable guy, definitely a hard worker, definitely talented…..but he turned the ball over waaaay too much. He was “protected” by his draft status and position…..ANY OTHER POSITION OR PLAYER THAT PERFORMED LIKE HIM WOULD HAVE BEEN BENCHED/CUT. If Winston were actually as good as folks hype him, he would have a job. The Bears traded for Foles….that should tell you plenty. The Pats would rather roll with a 2nd yr back up then bring in Winston. He’s in the bottom tier of QBs yet was protected from criticism, losing his job and paid the most. Pros get tired of exceptions.

  18. JGothier Says:

    Some fans here can’t take a joke, Lol.

  19. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Bobby M

    Amen…it was that lack of accountability that also hacked many of us fans as well.

  20. stpetebucsfan Says:



  21. Bucsfanman Says:

    This team can easily go 10-6 as long as we address the right tackle position.
    A bit more speed on the offensive side of the ball cant hurt.

  22. Pewter Power Says:

    Praying it’s not a Donald penn situation where he comes to camp fat and out of shape. I think if he was lighter he’d be quicker and much better.

  23. Ship Thief Says:

    Wait a minute Joe(s).
    Did I read that correctly?
    He is investing NOW (?!) in a home gym?!
    This dude is just doing this NOW?!
    He is one of only 32 people in the world that gets paid to be a starting LEFT TACKLE in the NFL, and he is only doing this NOW?!
    I mean, WHAAAAT?!

  24. westernbuc Says:

    Wait, he’s just now getting an in-home gym?

  25. sincethebeginning Says:

    @ship my thoughts exactly! And then I saw the part about him playing a lot of basketball in the backyard and all I can think about now is sprained ankles and twisted knees…. oh lordy let’s hope not!!

  26. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Glad to hear that St Pete,do you still have head cold or sinus symptoms ? Z pak always helped me get rid of sinus infections.

  27. Ship Thief Says:

    I just can’t get over this.

  28. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    yeah it really causes one to ponder.

    Maybe in the past he didn’t build a home gym cause he could just easily drive from his Tampa house down to One buc place for his work outs. Now suddenly he cannot do that and has to invest in one.

  29. Ship Thief Says:

    You guys ever read that interview with Angus Young? The one where he said that after Axel Rose joined AC/DC, he started to think he MIGHT get a guitar to practice on at his house?

    Me neither.


  30. Ship Thief Says:

    That post is for Mr Licht.

  31. Dapostman Says:

    Donovan ‘saloon door’ Smith.

  32. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    For some, nothing Smith says will be OK……

    As for Jameis…..sure, his teammates liked him…..of course……but they don’t choose their QB…..

  33. Ship Thief Says:

    I tried today to obtain some of those face masks for protestion, I found none, Zip.
    I then was running a few errands paying bills, etc..Low and behold, the girl at my cable company had plenty to spare and Voila..She gave me a few. Stay well.

  34. Ship Thief Says:

    I have never been against him at all.
    Still am not.
    But good lord…
    It tells me that he is totally clueless about at least 2 things.
    1 how to be proactive and motivate himself
    2 when to be quiet

    maybe the goat really is going to do what everyone has been saying…

  35. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Thanks. I too have had luck with Zpacks. My doc..when I finally connected on the phone pointed out that I’m so far along now might as well just “tough it out”.

    But while I’ve had a few bad nights I do not wish to complain but rather to salute all of those men and women who are out their on the front lines.

    Vietnam was a weird experience….a very unpopular war that left Vets shunned and guys feeling cut off from the rest of the country.

    We cannot let political divisions about our response to this challenge to in any way cloud our utmost respect, gratitude, and support for our “troops” on the front line and those in reserve waiting for it to hit us.

    If you work in a hospital THX! You guys rock.

  36. tickrdr Says:

    So happy for your great news.
    Can you answer a few questions?
    Was your test a buccal (inside the cheek) swab or a blood test?
    Where was your test performed?
    How were your results reported?
    Did they list a PCR (polymerase chain reaction), or did they report immunoglobulin antibodies (IgM or IgG).


  37. BigHog Says:

    Holding on to the ball to long …GTFOH!! Mr. 5,000 was doing his job as trained to do …looking for the big play…not to check it down …but to sling it down field…sure TB12 will get it out quickly but that would mean we will be running a different offense with different offensive approach to the game !!!

  38. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    He doesn’t have a home gym because he has always had access to One Buc!! My goodness people! I have always been a big Jameis supporter, and the ONLY reason I’m not upset that he’s not a Buc is because we got Brady. If it was Rivers or Bridgewater, I’d be miserable. But, as what I hope means I am a somewhat logical and reasonable human, I see how the QB throwing the five yard curl instead of the fifteen yard out helps the OL tremendously. Throw in a hell of a lot less field position issues and outright scores that JW created, and we have 10-6 MINIMUM! Donovan Smith’s best year so far will be 2020. And Brady will help him to elevate to that. GO BUCS and stay safe everyone!

  39. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    And Big Hog. Most of JW’s pick sixes were not way down the field.

  40. Ship Thief Says:

    I think it would be a very normal thing for a backup to say. It would be normal for a rookie to say. also an XFL or Canadian league or Arena league player…
    But this is our STARTING LEFT TACKLE!
    Our starting left tackle should BE A LEADER FOR THE ENTIRE OLINE!

    Time is now to LEAD, FOLLOW, OR GET OUT OF THE WAY!
    At least he seems to want to follow!

    This example will poison the troops!

  41. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Ship Thief, I agree 100%. I live in the NY area, and through my work have been to a lot of pro athletes homes, and they all had very nice home gyms. Some as nice as any big name gym.

  42. Ivan The Insider Says:

    Winston has held the too long for ALL FIVE SEASONS HE’S PLAYING. It was just an Arians Offense thing.

    Winston has always apparently had some sort of issue with not being able to read & exploit Defenses fast enough. He’s lucky he had amazing WRs that can win jump balls and find ways to get open.

    Imagine being an O-Lineman blocking for a guy that holds the ball forever. You have to physically hold off your guy for sometimes TWICE as long as you normally would have.

    It’s the difference in knowing you will have to do 1,000 pushups during a game or 1700 pushups because Winston is your QB.

    You’re damn right Smith is happy that Brady is his QB now.

  43. Steven007 Says:

    Ship, you’re right. The optics simply aren’t good when you say things like he said. True or not, understand that you’re under a microscope here.

  44. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Glad to hear it St. Pete. You’re one of the good guys. I would tell you to go out and celebrate, but I realize you can’t. So hit the Vape and have a cold one!

  45. Kevin M e h l Says:

    Get rid of this guy he’s slow and lazy! Every time you seen Winston on his back or trying to get out of trouble it’s because the left tackle is standing there with his finger and his butt! Get rid of him now!

  46. JGhotier Says:

    @ JGothier

    Why almost the same screen name as me brother?! I’m flattered, but it’s way too similar to mine…people are going to think what you say or get confused. I demand answers…


  47. Adrnagy Says:

    Look who’s bringing up jameis Winston …lol.
    Your obsess.

    you sissies, won’t even close my reply! I fed tickets since University of Tampa Spartans with my dad! Sorry asses

  49. Ship Thief Says:

    Geez guys, I didn’t wanna get so fired up.

    I’m thankful some of you think the same thing.

    Sorry I went off.

    For one reason or another… that just set me off.

    I just want this team to WANT TO BE AWESOME!

    I’m sure if I was talking to the actual man, I would be humbled.

  50. RODNEY ALLEN Says:

    Unlike DS but when ur an NFL player u invest in a home gym especially if u r 1 year into ur first real contract after ur rookie one 🤦🏻‍♂️💯🤷🏻‍♂️

  51. Ship Thief Says:

    oh wow, at 5:36 someone highjacked my name… hahaha loser

  52. Ship Thief Says:

    I must be an “influencer” now.

    I feel terrific.

  53. JGhotier Says:

    Ship Thief,

    Someone really did on mine. Well, pretty much did anyways.

    I mean, WTF?!

  54. JGhotier Says:

    Ship Thief,

    …except they spelled mine wrong, haha

  55. Ship Thief Says:

    anyone know what “protestion” is?

  56. Ivan The Insider Says:


    I’ll agree to never mention Winston again if you will? 🙂

  57. Ship Thief Says:

    I just wish they could get the grammar correct.

    It makes me look like a weirdo.

  58. D1 Says:


    Winston threw 3/4ths of his throws 10yds or less. 75% .
    I’m guessing that if Brady throws a similar percentage you’d be posting, if winston was able to throw all those short passes he’d have won too…

    Far to easy to predict that will happen. The rationalization of failure seems to have no limits. Except, if it’s any other player. Then of course it’s, different.

    Easy to predict. Impossible to respect.

  59. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Happy to answer your questions.

    My test was a nasal swab with the long qtip.

    It was done in the parking lot of the Baycare facility at Carrillon. I went originally because they have an excellent walk in facility there…never crowded…to get some treatment for the head cold. Of course coughing was a red flag so they immediately directed me to the parking lot line…it was very short…maybe five cars..and took at most ten minutes for info exchange and the swab.

    Of course that meant self quarantine until today’s notification. The notification was a simple phone call from Baycare that notified me my test came back negative. They had warned me of a ten to 14 day wait…today was only the 8th and so I was pleased.

    As for your technical questions you were far above my pay grade. 🙂 In any event they didn’t provide that info. If I had your expertise I could have asked I suppose…I was just relieved to be negative…got to drive a car for the first time in over a week.

  60. BigHog Says:

    I know Mr. 5,000 can throw the three step drop back, out of your hands quick pass …seen him do it too many times but when you’re consistently looking for the big play breakdowns happen….your scrambling for your life still looking for the big play as trained hence the interceptions …I’m sure TB12’s offense will be more like move the sticks while looking for the big play, you know like setting up the big play …if you can’t see the difference then watch the game more closely this season …TB12’s offense will be more to what he likes to do…as in he is a true vet … the end I’m saying Mr. 5,000 could have been protected more with better play calling !!!!

  61. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’m late to the party as a Buc’s fan. I moved here in the final years of the Sombrero.

    So I ask some of my older Buc fans about Paul Gruber? This in no way is intended to compare DS to perhaps the best Bucs OL of all time…perhaps Mayberry in that running? You older fans will know.

    My question is IMO just watching a couple of seasons Gruber seemed like the consummate professional…great athlete…not a Conrad Dobler dirty type mauler.

    I ask this because there are already slams against DS because he’s not a Jensen type. Was Gruber able to be the all time Buc great without being a mean dirty player?

  62. stpetebucsfan Says:


    “.in the end I’m saying Mr. 5,000 could have been protected more with better play calling !!!!”

    I think many of us…even those who gave up on him like me…can agree with that statement.

    The question is how much more. For me the most disappointing part of JW’s game was WHEN he made his mistakes…seemed like the more on the line the more they happened. He was as they say…”excitable.”

  63. Bob in Valrico Says:

    @ St Pete Agree with post about the brave doctors,nurses, breathing techs and all the other support staff all the the way to the janitorial staff required to keep up the fight to save lives.
    By the way you and Chris Cuomo must have the same dr. Who says to tough it out.

  64. Defense Rules Says:

    StPete … That’s AWESOME news. Praise the Lord!!!

    And you’re exactly right about the men & women ‘on the front lines’ responding to this pandemic. My son’s a paramedic/fireman in Richmond, VAand his wife is a Physician’s Assistant in one of the big hospitals there and they’ve already had to make some huge sacrifices. I can’t even imagine what those brave doctors, nurses, and others working tirelessly to respond to this outbreak in cities like New York are having to endure. I know that our thoughts & prayers are with all of them.

  65. Adrnagy Says:

    I don’t have a problem with jameis. You do.
    I don’t have a problem with Brady. – only argument is Brady a patriot for life. Until he doesn’t win/ wear and bleeds Bucs I’ll support him.

  66. SB Says:

    SB= Super bastard

  69. LaMarcus Says:

    Dsmith is garbage and he is praised because he is average?

    He should be also on that ALL JAMEIS WINSTON ALL STARS TEAM they made yesterday

    Jameis Winston also got him paid as well. It’s easy to be healthy when you take plays off just chilling in the middle in the play

  70. Craig Says:

    My Momma taught me that if you had nothing good to say, don’t say anything. Those saying jameis was an alright guy had good Christian raising and strict Mommas. They are talking because Jameis was an alright guy to them.

    Only problem with DS is that he could of used some dance classes, but that can’t happen this off-season.

    Brady will make him dance when Shaq breaks through. He’ll be fine, maybe even great this season.

    I have also seen Jameis do a three step drop and have a DB break on the ball because he was staring at the spot on the flat where he was supposed to play catch with the receiver. Too much film and no street sense.

  71. brett buell Says:

    Sorry to be Negative Nancy, but I doubt there will be a season.

  72. Bird Says:

    Two best posts of the year:

    They come from Adr nagy
    I mean this is awesome

    -He speaks and writes 4 languages
    -he claimed bucs would sign Jameis 5 years 150 million

    Ladies and gentleman. I give you the guy that calls jameis non cult members- 2 face. He called someone obsessed earlier. I mean could you imagine what he would do obsessively to jameis. I think bollo sac on bollo sac matchup

  73. David Says:


    I have not seen anywhere that says the locker room did not like Jameis Winston. Not sure where you got that from.
    In fact, the only thing I have seen is how everyone praises his work ethic, love the guy and called the guy a great leader but… The turnovers were wearing thin. They were deflating the team who are out there busting their ass.
    I am on record saying I wanted Jameis to have one more year with this staff and if that did not work, then sell out the entire draft to get Trevor Lawrence next year. EXCEPT…. If they were able to get Brady for a couple years…. and here we are!!
    Go Bucs!

  74. stpetebucsfan Says:


    PTL indeed. THX Best wishes for the safety of your son and daughter in law!

    Please tell them thanks from me and tell them I shall hold them in my prayers and evening meditations.

    I hope they are safe and stay healthy…As a father I know you must be concerned.

    Do you have grandkids?

  75. tickrdr Says:

    Thanks for that info! The nasopharyngeal swab looks for viral RNA via something called a polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and thank God, it was negative.
    I believe they are working on blood tests to look for antibody production in response to the coronavirus infection, which will be more accurate in confirming the presence of prior infection, but also demonstrating possible immunity to recurrent infection. Specifically, the presence of IgM (immunoglobulin M) in your serum would be indicative of relatively acute infection, whereas the presence of IgG (immunoglobulin G) is indicative of prior infection from which you have now recovered and are thought to be immune to recurrent infection. There is some debate about this, because doctors are taught that the presence of IgG antibodies confers immunity to repeat infection. That is the mechanism for how vaccines work. The body manufactures antibodies against foreign antigens (the infectious virus or bacteria), which then protect against recurrent infection. Once this sort of blood testing is widely available, then hopefully we will learn that many thousands of people may have already been infected and survived, which would imply that this virus is far less deadly than previously thought.

    Lastly, I have driven past that Baycare facility in Carillon many times, as my daughter lives in Feather Sound. Again so happy to hear your test was negative.
    I was off today, so I spent the day nursing an adult beverage or two, while working on my “quaran-tan” by the pool.


  76. Stanglassman Says:

    Gofortheface- Other than the fact 1,000 plus Americans died in a single day and getting worse it’s great. It’s shocking you’re single. Equally amazing you haven’t apologized to everyone and corrected your last statements about the virus.

  77. D1 Says:


    Fair assessment and I agree with one caveat. That would be situational football.

    To the point, score and time on the clock. Jameis often was playing from behind on the scoreboard. The NFL is at the point in time where if your team is behind 2 scores early, you scrap the game plan and call plays that could lead to a quick score. I think this played a role in both the play calling and execution or seeking the deep ball to get the score flipped or within 1 score as fast as possible.

    Playing from behind is not ideal for the team, coaches or QB. Fans question playcalling without considering the game situation and how it limits the options available. If the QB is put in a position to get a quick score it forces decisions that you normally don’t make.

    Assuming Brady is the actual Tom Brady from the Patriots and not some elaborate ruse, turnovers ,especially 1st qtr ones, will not put the team on its heels right outta the gate. This alone will reshape the offense from last season to this one. It may appear totally different but if what I’m pointing out plays out that way, Brady would most likely run the offense as you suggest.

    Game Management and situational awareness was not Winston’s forte. Fans love a Gunslinger. GS fans don’t consider a check down , game manager QB as good as the Gunslinger style guy . Because everything the gunslinger does has the potential to be spectacular. ESPN high light reel quality.

    Mr Excitement , sounds vaguely familiar, and pay attention here, makes the mundane look high risk and difficult to complete. That’s not great or good it’s a flashing neon sign that says…this QB absolutely sucks. He cant execute the offense with any profiency. He’s capable of making a difficult play look routine, but also making routine plays look difficult. That’s winston.

    Tom will have the fans thinking about all the changes to the offense and some will point out they should Have done the same for winston.

    First, it’s not possible. Or rather, it could be done but buc fans would point to the coach as playing conservative and holding winston back.

    Second, the game script lasts for a drive or 2 or a turnover, whichever is first. Guy who moves the chains and protects the ball isn’t going to piss on the coaches who put in ridiculous hours installing a game plan by going 3 and out or turning the ball over. That QB will appear to be receiving conservative plays. Well, no shi#!

    Winston is a gunslinger. Then what kinda plays do you think he’s going to get?
    If you go conservative with winston until the game is out of reach, turn winston loose and it’s spectacular. After the lose, astute reporters like jbf will be pointing fingers directly at the coaches Monday am . This is exactly what has happened.

    Brady will have a non dramatic season , won’t look nearly as awesome as winston. Winston fans will be in overdrive pointing it out. And that my friend is why winston fan, is a clueless fan.

  78. BigHog Says:

    D1 /// I agree to disagree …leave my you with …we shall soon see!!!

  79. D1 Says:


    I can appreciate that!

    If you’d be so kind as to point out where you believe our position differs. I started with agreeing with your post. And that hasn’t changed.

    The only issue I had was if the team finds itself down by a couple scores early in a game, I would expect Brady to play more like Winston. Aggressive, looking for the deep ball , fighting to extend plays etc. I’d expect the playcalling to be similar as well.

    Brady won’t put the team in the positions winston did last year . That’s the expectations anyway. If the team isn’t turning the ball over or playing from bad field position , there’s no need for Brady or lefty to be as aggressive as last year. This isn’t something earth shattering idea. It’s common sense.

    But if you disagree with anything, please point it out. Mainly because I don’t see any point of disagreement and I am curious.

  80. D1 Says:


    On second thought, If you believe that I’m anti winston and view my comments via that lens. I understand completely where you disagree. But I’ve never been on one side or the other with winston. I’ve stated numerous times I like jameis and his potential.

    But I understand the teams decision to move on. It was what I expected. And I don’t waste time or energy about the decisions the team makes. I simply trying to understand why they make the decisions and that makes it easier to anticipate what future decisions will be. Most people act as if they run the team or if they ran the team they’d do x, y, z. . Why, I have no idea . But it’s an observation.

    Point is, I see fans bemoaning the winston decision and other celebrating

  81. D1 Says:

    Neither has any appeal to me. Winning games and going to the Super Bowl is the time to celebrate. Not now.

  82. Sydney Says:

    There’s not going to be a 2020 season, people. Isn’t that obvious by now? Do the math. Think about it.

    Lazy ass Smith doesn’t know what bring your A-Game even means. He plays ok when the mood strikes him which is very seldom. He was a lazy ass in college & nothing has changed. The Bucs really know how to pick em. The first time he gets TB sacked might be his last. TB will not put up with his crap for long.

    If you revisit this thread may I say that was an awesome response to BigHog.
    Made me think and I love posters who make me think…sometimes even reconsidering my views.

    Always enjoy your posts but that was such a spectacular job of pointing out how “gunslinger” types can influence play calling in ways that “managers” do not.


    Thanks for that free education on viral testing and antibodies. Glad you got to enjoy a day off working on your quara tan. Adult beverages always seem to help. I found it amusing that liquor was considered essential in our shelter in place rules.
