Happy New Year!

January 1st, 2021

Joe has never been a big New Year’s guy.

Oh, Joe loved going to the Outback Bowl (that tradition ended a couple of years ago) and eating spare ribs and black-eyed peas, sucking down Bloody Marys and getting back home (well lubricated) after the Outback Bowl to watch the Rose Bowl and the Orange Bowl.

Long, fun days.

But Joe never really got into the New Year’s Eve celebrations. So a new year is coming, big deal! Besides, it is amateur night. No thanks.

Tonight? Well, let’s just say Joe bought a bottle of Crown Royal Reserve and is toasting the end of such a horrid, sh!tty year.

The only thing Joe found positive was the Lightning winning the Stanley Cup and, of course, the Bucs became a winner.

We have good things to look forward to in the coming days/weeks. There’s a vaccine, thank goodness! And a Bucs playoff game(s) to watch. And hopefully, The Sickness will have subsided from enough people getting vaccinated that by summer, life will be trickling back to normal.

Outside of the Bucs making all the right moves to restore dignity and wins to the franchise after 12 years of mostly dread, 2020, you effing sucked!

Good riddance, 2020. And Joe raises a glass to all of his readers wishing the best for 2021.

It can’t be worse than 2020.

    They can stick that vaccine right where the sun doesnt shine…i dont trust it, especially not yet. Ive had the flu 2 times back in my 20’s and both times were when i got the flu shot 2 years apart.

    Nicely said Joe. Warms my heart to hear you so positive and nostalgic, even if it is the Crown Royal talking so what. We all know drunks tell the truth. Happy New Year to everyone here. Here’s to a healthy and safe new year and 7 rings for Mr Brady

    Here’s to our fellow losers Browns fans who are on pins and needles trying to make the playoffs…..Its such a relief to qualify before the last week.
    Happy New Year everyone!!!
