So, this is what you could call a retaliatory post to Gonzo’s most recent post about the Kansas City Chiefs, who happen to me my favorite team (Tomahawk Chop for Chiefs Nation). Now, Gonzo is a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or whatever it is that shows up to games in Tampa Bay. Now, Gonzo tried to take a shot at KC, and he mentioned something that I thought should be brought to light. The Buccaneers are a walking (dead) infection.

Players in Tampa Bay have been coming down with the infectious skin disease MRSA left and right. They believe that it started with kicker Lawrence Tynes, who is now suing the Bucs due to what he calls a “PR cover-up”.

Now, Gonzo tried to sweep the whole MRSA thing under the rug, however, this stuff is legitimately frightening, like people die from this. The aforementioned Tynes has undergone three surgeries and is worried about losing his toe, meanwhile last year’s prize free agent guard Carl Nicks just underwent surgery of his own to battle the wicked MRSA.

It’s gotten to the point where teams who have to play the Bucs in the next few weeks are actually thinking about this disease in the back of the mind. So yes, the Bucs are so bad that they can’t win a game of football even though opposing players are afraid to touch them…I see why Josh Freeman was so excited to leave.

P.S. I was going to include a picture of MRSA, but Jesus, you don’t want to see that…if you do, google it, and quickly find a bucket.
