    Some people say that it’s just a sport. I say that football is life. An analogy of life. My wife asks me why I care so much. I care because I’m a competitive guy myself and I feel like I’m competing along side these men. I care so much because I care for the men on the team….most of them anyway….you’re still pissing me off Roberto. I lost my father to suicide when I was 18 years old away at basic training. I know how much it hurts. I hurt when I read the news about Verner’s father. I was proud of him for playing and I was down right emotional for him after his INT. There is more to life than football but I can’t help feeling that life wouldn’t be so great without cheering for men I care about living their passion on the field. Thanks Alterraun. And thanks to the Bucs for a great win.

    Sometimes we fans forget that these players are people. Great game #21.

    Gutsy performance by Alteraun. More impressive than the pick was he pass defended. Just textbook on how to do it. That receiver would have been gone if Alteraun doesn’t make that play.
    Alteraun got elevated to full blown man status yesterday in my eyes. Was he one of the guys Scott wanted to get resigned? Yes he was, pay the man.

    My prayers and condolences to Alterraun and his family for the loss of his father. So many things pale in comparison to family.
