Never let it be said that FOX Sports commentator Skip Bayless is quiet. He’s celebrating Tampa Bay going to the Super Bowl like a child.

Some wisecracks out there might say Skip Bayless acts like a child all the time.

Nevertheless, once the Tom Brady-led Buccaneers bounced the Green Bay Packers 31-26 in the NFC Championship Game, Bayless showed off his happiness.

No doubt Bayless will be talking about the Buccaneers’ victory, as well as the AFC Championship Game, on Monday’s “Undisputed” with Shannon Sharpe on FOX Sports 1.

Skip Bayless, who comes from a newspaper background as a former columnist for the now-defunct Dallas Times Herald, has made a name for himself as a commentator on ESPN and FOX Sports.

He’s a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan, so one might imagine he needed to find a new team to root for this postseason.

Did Skip Bayless Predict A Tom Brady Super Bowl Trip?

Maybe the real reason behind Bayless’ fan-boy excitement around the Buccaneers’ victory has roots in something he said on “Undisputed.”

During a virtual conversation on March 17, the day Brady signed with the Buccaneers, with Sharpe, Bayless said, “Wouldn’t it be just like Tom Brady to say ‘one reason I’m picking Tampa is because the Super Bowl is in Tampa and I’m going to be playing the first ever home team Super Bowl.'”

Bayless is known for his out-of-this-world opinions and was part of “ESPN’s First Take” with Stephen A. Smith before leaving the show in 2016.

Bayless Said Chiefs Weren’t Going To Get Far In Playoffs

Now before the Chiefs played their first postseason game, Shannon Sharpe picked Kansas City to reach the Super Bowl.

Bayless didn’t agree at all. He said the then 14-1 Chiefs were overrated.

“I believe the glass is half empty, not a glass half full,” Bayless said on “Undisputed.” “I believe your Chiefs are on borrowed time right now because this is what have you done for me lately.”

Also, Skip Bayless did not think much of the Chiefs’ margin of victory during a then-seven-game winning streak. Their 3.9 points-on-average margin is, according to Bayless, “the lowest margin of victory in NFL history” for a seven-plus-game win streak.

Seeing Kansas City reach the AFC Championship Game probably doesn’t sit well with Bayless. He’s too wrapped up in celebrating Tom Brady making it to his 10th Super Bowl. Knowing Bayless’ ego, he probably also is celebrating his prognostication abilities, too.
