Hot: Stalking Tom Brady

May 21st, 2020

Makes NFL trendy list.

Joe understands some squirmed when Joe sarcastically called the coverage of staking out park-violating, home-invading Bucs quarterback Tom Brady having a workout with his teammates as “paparazzi.”

(You can hear Joe and Uncle Ira talk about this in-depth in Uncle Ira’s next pod which was recorded Wednesday night.)

Well, one man typing for Joe isn’t sure is being sarcastic; he took the Brady practicing assignment a step past paparazzi. In a column about what’s hot and what’s not in the NFL, Marc Sessler had stalking Brady as a hot activity.

Very impressed with paparazzi types and civilian journos putting the old college try into tracking Tom Brady’s every movement in sweltering Tampa. After the newly minted Bucs passer was shooed out of a clamped-down park in late April, cameras on Tuesday caught the 42-year-old in shoulder pads as he trotted onto the field at Tampa’s Berkeley Prep School to work with several teammates. Eyes still adjusting to the bright orange practice jersey donned by TB12.

Look, Joe has been on similar assignments. As you will hear in Uncle Ira’s pod, Joe once stalked Joe Paterno when Penn State practiced at Lakewood High School for an Outback Bowl.

It did have the scent of paparazzi. You know, like “Page Six,” which boldfaces every name as if JLo and A-Rod got caught fooling around at a trendy Washington Square Park outdoor biergarten in New York? Or Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade were spotted performing PDA at a secluded beach bar in Bali. You know, the photos had the tree limbs and car bumpers within the focal point of the photos.

Would Joe have done the same thing if Joe knew where Brady and his new teammates were working out? Hell yeah.

The fact this is getting so much run locally shows there is a massive audience for this. Bucs fans are desperate for a winner and hungry for football. If the Bucs make a Super Bowl run, Brady will be hoisted in the community as a football Savior.

Dude would never have to spring for a pint of avocado ice cream again in this town.

    Whats the point of writing that moniker for Brady every article? It’s not there for every article. Not even close. –Joe I just cant get past it every time i read it, it’s kind of absurd given “Americas QB” is now a backup and actually done worse things. Cmon joe lets be real now

  2. Pewter Power Says:


    Only way to get around the idiotic logic of praising Winston as America’s quarterback but insulting a super bowl champion is ignore the useless opinion and only read the quotes because everything else is babble

  3. Joe Says:

    Winston as America’s quarterback but insulting a super bowl champion

    Stop it!

    So perfectly fine damn near every network sports show mocks and jokes about this but if Joe does it, it’s insulting? Hell, Brady himself even joked about it!


    It’s not Joe’s problem if people have no sense of humor or concept of satire.

    Might want to get used to it or grow up. Sick of the juvenile whining. “Mommy, he hurt my feelings.”

  4. Bucsfan1988 Says:

    Joe, I think everyone is just telling you that it was comical at first, but I think everyone believed you would stop using that phrase to describe the GOAT shortly afterward.

    He deserves the respect he’s worked so hard to earn over the years.

    Just sayin’ 🤷🏻‍♂️.
    (Although I still think it’s funny 😆

  5. TampaTown Says:

    What about paddle-throwing? I was hoping for that one

  6. tickrdr Says:

    What is irony?


  7. Darin Says:

    I agree with that one Joe. Stop the whining you babies. My goodness if only everyone grew up before these participation trophy days. I don’t see how taking pictures of people practicing football is lustful tho. I’ll never understand the starstruck mentality. I’d say get a hobby but I guess that is some people’s hobby. It takes all types

  8. Troll Says:

    [Interesting. This place is so horrible, you keep coming back using different IP addresses to read stories. Who’s the “dumbass” exactly? — Joe]

  9. AJ Says:

    According to the Johnny Manziel loving, Devin White 5th pick unworthy, can’t call it Wuhan virus, creepy cheerleader obsessive, St Pete Times hating, Mask Wearing Joe’s. Blah, Blah, Blah on Brady whatever…

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    Jeesh Joe you think they hated “America’s Quarterback” for Jameis?

    Now you got this for Brady….it seems every time you use it….y

    You get killed for it. Silly really.

    Who was that poster Pete I that said he was a lawyer and wrote to One Buc and this and that and the other thing over Brady’s moniker?

    Wth is wrong with people?

  11. Durango 95 Says:

    “Oh no Joe!..Please don’t offend Lord Brady”


    Paddle-throwing, local media-averting, park-violating, home-invading, etc.

  12. Joe Says:

    local media-averting

    LOL. Not sure Brady’s trying to dodge local media. 🙂

    He should have had a work out at Jesuit or Lakewood. Guessing he likely didn’t want to practice on Jesuit’s turf

  13. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I got no problem with Joe’s satire.

    Making fun of TB12 is funny because it’s not SERIOUS.

    Now if he described our last QB as Pgrabbing, blackout drunk suspended party animal Jameis Winston that would NOT be funny because it’s serious.

    And it wouldn’t be tit for tat again because one is a joke and the other a slam.

  14. Hawk Says:

    I have a feeling that if Brady can help the Bucs hoist another Lombardi, the moniker will change a bit.
    Let it go folks. There are more serious matters in the world right now than what Joe is calling Brady.
    Like, when will football actually start?!?!?!

  15. Says:

    You can tell who has a sense of humor in these parts. I mean, come on! Joe has been doing this since the beginning. This site is meant as entertainment with relevant, up to the minute football information thrown in to make you have to keep coming back. If you get your feelings hurt by reading some of the descriptors for the people Joe writes about, you should probably find another hobby. Like Realist, for example, he herds sheep and grows exclamation points on his farm.

  16. Locked In Says:

    Paddle chucking… sounds better in a long string of nicknames.

  17. gp Says:

    St Pete
    Serious accusations without any proof -vs- silly things (read funny) that actually happened…
    I think I’m with Joe on this one!

  18. gp Says:

    The only farm that Realist has been near is on Facebook. Aside from the ones he drives by when he gets lost on his way home from his Grandma’s.
    Mind you, he has to wipe and restart the program often. Somehow or another, every time he tries to breed his sheep, the offspring are born with his face. Somewhat embarrassing eh?

  19. DI Says:

    So much crying about how articles are written. Like these people have any say in how this site is run. Move along

  20. Steven007 Says:

    What 1988 said. It was funny the first time. Maybe the second. Perhaps the third? Then it just got old and tired very quickly. Now it’s simply annoying. And unnecessary.

  21. gp Says:

    Go home Stevie, your mommy’s calling you!

  22. stpetebucsfan Says:


    “Like Realist, for example, he herds sheep and grows exclamation points on his farm.”

    That was some seriously funny snark. Well done!

    Yes! Park-trespassing (me editorializing), home-invading, paddle-throwing Tom Brady. I’m down with that.

    and post got dumped….not even mod, lol

  25. ©MadMax Says:

    Epitome of “Americas QB” slandered to home invader….meanwhile “Americas turnover machine, Uber crotch grabber, crab leg stealing, 3rd stringer 1 million minimum maker” is the good guy.
