Wake Up Call From Tennessee

October 2nd, 2020

Bucs OLB Lavonte David.

Just when locals started to get a bit more comfortable in dealing with The Sickness the past week or so, the cold slap of reality stung folks right in the face.

Just last night it was announced that our President, 45, and the First Lady went into self-quarantine after testing positive for The Sickness. Also yesterday it was announced the Steelers-Titans game originally scheduled for Sunday is postponed until later in the season because several Tennessee players and staffers have come down with The Sickness.

Bucs stud linebacker Lavonte David did a Zoom conference yesterday with the Fourth Estate and he was asked about for his thoughts with the Steelers-Tennessee game getting pushed back. Basically, David thanked the NFL for looking out for the players.

“It is definitely a reminder how serious this thing [is] and how serious the league is taking this,” David said. “I feel, postponing the game, [the NFL is] doing a great job of protecting both teams and both football programs.

“It does take you aback a little bit and remind you that this thing is serious. You have to do what you are supposed to do and what the team is telling you in order to prevent situations like that.”

Of course, no one really knows exactly how The Sickness got through to the Titans with all the security measures in place. In fact, yesterday afternoon, the NFL even added additional layers to its protocols of tests and social distancing to further help ensure the safety of its employees.

Joe guesses a combination of so few NFL players catching The Sickness (as well as NBA, NHL and recently MLB players), along with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis reopening the state last week, and Bucs fans now getting to attend games, meant maybe everyone collectively was getting a bit lax?

David admitted the news of the Titans’ positive tests has sort of been a wakeup call. Joe is guessing it probably should for all of us.

Wash your hands!

    TBone47: Look it up. Also, if we REALLY did have a fascist/dictator in charge, do you think you’d be able to say whatever you want about the government or leader on the internet?

    “If you believe in fascism then I guess I can see how you would be against Antifa”
    If you employ fascist tactics while accusing others of fascism, you are probably antifa.

    Wait a minute…what? I thought covid and wearing mask was “political”. Thats what some posters on this site was just saying yesterday because coaches are forced to wear mask on the sidelines. They called it “optics.” I thought the glazers were merily playing politics by not letting fans in the stands because “leftist” mayors were playing politics. 45 knew hope hicks had covid thursday morning and eventhough he was in close contact with her the past 2 days, he still went out to a fund raiser that day instead of isolating. That means he wàs at that point a spreader and knew that he was possibily a spreader. Now do some of you “political” anti mask posters understand why everyone should be wearing a mask? Some may knowingly go out with the “sickness” or knowingly have come in direct contact with the “sickness” and still not wear a mask. Maybe not because many of you still call it all a hoax. Those d@mn glazers wont let me in to see Tom Brady. What are they thinking? Its all a hoax. Dont listen to these “leftist.”

    “Wow. Joe from Michigan super aggressive. Did you get that from your handbook.”

    Accusing others of what you, yourself are guilty of, is a tactic right out of the leftist handbook, actually. “Rules for Radicals.” You sound like an adherent.

    Crime including, but not limited to, police assault, arson, vandalism if not looting. Tactics that sure seem to mirror a certain group in Germany that rose in the 1920s.
