Bucs Are A Box Of Lucky Charms

March 17th, 2022

Today is one of the greatest days of the world. And no, it has nothing to do with an island in the north Atlantic.

Today, March Madness tips off. And suddenly like magic, America becomes a basketball country for the next three weeks and then the sport goes back into the shadows of football.

But yeah, Joe knows today is St. Patrick’s Day. Joe has never been a huge celebrant. Joe cannot eat cabbage and linger in public, for example. And besides, Killians gives Joe a terrible hangover — and don’t get Joe started about that rotten syrup Guinness.

(Now to be fair, who doesn’t love a drunken blonde or a red-haired chick wearing one of those cheesy plastic green derby hats, a shamrock necklace and skimpy cheap green T-shirt?)

But here is a cool Bucs-related St. Patrick’s story told by Kyle Brandt this morning on “Good Morning Football,” seen weekdays on NFL Network. Brandt said the Bucs have become a box of Lucky Charms cereal.

Brandt said the Bucs are a “pot o’ gold” this offseason, and here is Brandt’s breakdown of the Lucky Charms characters and the Bucs:

Unicorn: Tom Brady. “He’s back out of retirement. There is no one like him, [a] unicorn. Probably some sort of once removed from a goat.”

Heart: Will go to Ryan Jensen. That’s what he plays with. That’s what he brings each and every snap. He brings it after the snap.

Shooting Star: Russell Gage. Because that’s what he is. Anybody who made the 2021 list of Peter Schrager’s Ones to Watch — yes Peter, I watch and remember — is going to be the shooting star charm.

Horseshoe: Goes to Chris Godwin. Because he certainly has some kind of luck and has somebody looking out for him. Coming off the injury, getting the extension. Godwin is the horseshoe (Brandt also pointed out how the horseshoe charm turns milk purple and that may be a reference to Godwin’s physical play).

Rainbow: Will go to Shaq Mason. Because he is coming over from New England. Now he will see all the beautiful colors that is outside of that Foxborough bubble. Just like Tom Brady before him.

And then Brandt sang, “The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they’re magically delicious!”

Joe has never had Lucky Charms. Joe growing up was much more of a Captain Crunch guy or Honey Puffs.

But yeah, the way things have been going since Tom Brady showed up in Tampa, Bucs fans have found their pot o’ gold. And maybe, just maybe, Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians is a leprechaun.

    There is little doubt that the real ‘luck’ was Brady unretiring. That one move alone manifested almost all the other moves.

    Think about it: if Brady doesn’t come back and we don’t secure another top-flight passer, then the entire team goes into a soft rebuild. Who the heck knows if we still would’ve re-signed Jensen, Davis, Godwin, etc? Would the team even invest in expensive free agents knowing we would have to wait for Kyle Trask to develop (or draft someone else if he tanked)?

    Thank God for Brady.

    LISTNFRMAFAR – Why are you still on this site ??? Your the one who jumped ship first and then talked bad about our Bucs !! Saying that they need to ” FREE BRADY , FREE BRADY So he can go play with the 49ers ” !!??? I promise to NEVER let you forget that , because I sure as hell won’t !! GO ROOT FOR THE NINERS OR THE AINTS YOU FAKE PILE OF G.O.A.T. DUNG !!

  29. Listnfrmafar Says:

    TampabayBJ, don’t you have anything relevant to write? FYI, Gronk hasn’t signed and TB12 isn’t in uniform yet. The Bucs wouldn’t FREE him, that’s why he’s still with the Bucs. It’s either play for Bucs half arse coaching staff or don’t play. He is making lemonade out of lemons. Why else would he retire???

  30. Crickett Baker Says:

    I didn’t watch it but was sure glad you quoted it, Joe! What an imaginative and great story. Thanks. 🙂

    Darden is a leprechaun.

  34. Jim Says:

    Did Brady retire just to take the heat off until he really decided? Or did it take him the full 40 days to change his wife’s mind? Either way, well played on both accounts. Happy wife, happy life.
