Bruce Arians Is Off The COVID List

January 1st, 2022

Making the trip.

Boy, what could have been a nightmare is so much better.

Per NBC Sports Edge, Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians is off the dreaded COVID list and will make the trip to SopranosLand to coach the Bucs.

Tomorrow is supposed to be ugly weather (for Florida folks) against the Jets, with the highs in the mid-50s and rain on and off all day. Joe wonders if Arians, already with a messed-up Achilles, will stand outside for three hours or if he will try to sit up in a warm, dry coach’s box?

    You woke up this morning
    Got yourself a gun,
    Mama always said you’d be
    The Chosen One.

    She said: You’re one in a million
    You’ve got to burn to shine,
    But you were born under a bad sign,
    With a blue moon in your eyes.

    You woke up this morning
    All the love has gone,
    Your Papa never told you
    About right and wrong.

    But you’re looking good, baby,
    I believe you’re feeling fine, (shame about it)
    Born under a bad sign
    With a blue moon in your eyes.

    So sing it now
    Woke up this morning
    Got a blue moon
    Got a blue moon in your eyes, yeah
    Woke up this morning

    Arians is tougher than woodpecker lips and then adrenalin will be flowing. He’ll be on the sidelines.

    Does BA have to travel separately, like Dean and SMB?

    Yes horrible weather. I’m over here with 25 degrees and 11 degrees wind chill. 50 is gorgeous January weather, rain or no rain.

    bruce is traveling up to new york because he wants to see the bucs tee off on some total scrubs before the playoffs

    The mid-50s is very warm for this time of year in the Jersey swamp. Normally you’d expect the game to be in the mid-20s.

  13. sasquatch Says:

    If you can’t play in 50°, you’ve got no business being in the NFL. 50° is nothing.

  14. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Agree. 50° should be balmy for large men running around.

    According to a study in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, from a group led by Andreas Flouris of the University of Thessaly in Greece (google it) the best outside temperature for athletes is between 45.5 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Yes, the heat in Tampa “helps” the Bucs not because it is easier on the body but because the other team is less used to playing in uncomfortably hot conditions. Same with the Broncos having an advantage at home – not because the human body works better at altitude and low oxygen levels but because they are more used to this impediment than the visiting team.

    In other words you cannot ask for better weather than the 50s. In fact there are marathon runners complaining that mid 50s is too hot.

  16. Swampbuc Says:

    Note to BA – don’t let Boron’s Leftwurst foul up the game by being an idjut with 40 straight seven step drops.

    Who cares, just don’t sit next to Brady on the plane. He doesn’t need any residual virus shat.

    Come on Ira and Joe… Fortune favors the Bold…an old Latin phrase. I’m shocked that you word artists don’t know that. And now you know what the other Joe was laughing. -Joe
