Like so many we were shocked and saddened Thursday to hear of the untimely passing of our good friend Mark Cook who spent years covering the Buccaneers for Pewter Report and contributing alongside of us at WDAE. Check out his amazing sense of humor in this video where he pranks Pat with Nick Carter!
This video is a culmination of years of me busting Mark's balls about being such a big Backstreet Boys fan, and Mark paying me back by having Nick call the show one weekend when he was in to talk Bucs football with me. Mark's sense of humor was always present, and it was why Mark was someone you were always happy to be around. Well, that and Mark would often share food with me at Bucs camp, but that's another story. Tampa Bay lost a great ambassador for Tampa Bay sports today, and the Cook family lost a great man. We will miss you, Mark.
