Throwback Game Comes Early In 2013July 9th, 2013
Joe’s guessing many Bucs fans read the following on Joe’s Twitter feed earlier this morning, but for those who may have missed it, the Bucs announced the Throwback Game, where the team turns back the clock to wear Creamsicle orange, will be Sept. 29 against the Arizona Desert Rats.
The throwback game will be but one of many themed games for the Bucs this season, highlighted by Monday Night Football against the Dolphins, Nov. 11. That night, soon-to-be Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Sapp will have his No. 99 retired during a halftime ceremony.
The throwback game gives Joe chills, and not for good reason. The Bucs have won but one throwback game, which ironically was Josh Freeman’s very first NFL start against the Green Bay Packers in 2009.
If the Bucs lose to the Desert Rats, Joe will be all for putting a halt to throwback games. On second thought, losing may be the best way to honor the Creamsicles.
