Veterans Arrive At One Buc Palace

July 24th, 2021

Wake up!

It’s officially football season.

Joe’s been training, jogging, drinking a little less Big Storm beer and now celebrating.

Bucs veterans reported for duty this morning at One Buc Palace. It’s a day of physicals and meetings before tomorrow’s opening practice. Quarterbacks arrived for “quarterback school” days ago, as did the rookies, per NFL labor rules.

Tampa Bay is reporting before most teams because they start their regular season three days earlier against the Cowboys on Thursday Night Football, Sept. 9 at The Licht House.

Joe hasn’t heard rumblings of any players not reporting, outside of safety Jordan Whitehead on the COVID list.

The long but sweetly shortened wait is over. Joe is happy for the couple thousand fans who will get to watch practice tomorrow. Hopefully, Team Glazer will do the right thing and open a few practices to the general public. As of now, only season ticket holders, sponsors, media types and special event invitees will get in.

    Just a thought for our players and fans. Not political but a simple fact. Not about Pfizer or Moderna or J&J or even Covid.

    It’s a SIMPLE REALITY about vaccines in general. Perhaps it will make some of you feel better.

    “From 1900 until 1950 and then from 1950 to 2000, there was a fairly dramatic increase in life expectancy, primarily due to control of infectious diseases,” says Anderson, citing significant discoveries in antibiotics and vaccines and improvements in sanitation.

    Yeah our lifestyle changes, medical advances have all helped but the MAJOR reason we live longer is because we no longer die from measles…various fevers…polio etc.

    This life expectancy increase for the VAST MAJORITY perhaps came at a reduced life expectancy for an INDIVIDUAL who suffered debilitating side effect from a vaccine.

    People die all the time on operating tables…not the doctors fault..or the treatment per se…sometimes things dont’ work out so we play the odds.

    StPete. If you’re saying get the shot and don’t be that guy who ruined our season than I agree with you. This vax hesitancy isn’t going to age well.

    “From 1900 until 1950 and then from 1950 to 2000, there was a fairly dramatic increase in life expectancy, primarily due to control of infectious diseases,”….
    just to add more statistics:
    “In 1900, pneumonia and influenza were the leading causes of death, with around 202 deaths per 100,000 population OR—> 0.202% of population.”

    Today from corona_V we have 609000 deaths OR—> 0.190 % of population.

    Looks to me not very much improvement there, considering that corona_V is a form of “pneumonia and influenza”…..
