Gerald McCoy geeks out about meeting ‘the GOAT’ Stan Lee

By Jesse Reed

There are two kinds of people in this world. There are those who adore Stan Lee, former Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics. And there are those who don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle is clearly a member of the former.

McCoy posted a picture of himself sitting next to Lee on a couch Friday, and the big man was clearly excited about it.

Not that we blame him. Lee is the man responsible for one of the most successful comic book empires in the world, not to mention the millions upon millions of dollars Marvel has brought in via movies that bear its name.

Lee is a creative mastermind. He’s also responsible for bringing to light many social issues through his comics. In case you haven’t already figured it out, this scribe is with McCoy and millions of others who adore Lee’s work over the decades.

In football news, McCoy is officially questionable for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. He was wearing a walking boot following the team’s Week 3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings after injuring his ankle. The Bucs are 1-1 heading into Week 4 after missing the first week of action due to Hurricane Irma.
