With the Super Bowl just days away, Tampa Bay was the subject of jokes and segments on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night, including Bucs QB Tom Brady reading “Mean Tweets” that have been directed at him.

Said Kimmel of Tampa: “... the festivities have been scaled down drastically because of the pandemic, which is bad news for the many local strip clubs in Tampa that make a lot of money this time of year.

“There are so many strip clubs in Tampa the ATMs give out $1 dollar bills ... I used to live in Tampa. I lived there for about a year when I was a radio DJ (on the The “Q Morning Zoo” on Q105 WRBQ ). If you’ve never been to Tampa. ... Tampa is like the Florida of Florida.”

But the highlight was Brady reading “Mean Tweets.”

“Tom Brady seems like the kind of man who doesn’t know how to use a wrench,” Brady chuckled and said, “That’s kinda true.”

Many of the rest of the tweets were a little more, shall we say, coarse, though quite hilarious.
