Bucs Fever Is SpreadingMarch 29th, 2014
Joe must confess he wasÂ blown away by last night’s turnout for the Buccaneers’ uniform unveiling party. LovieballÂ has fans jacked up to Glory Days levels.
The team reported more than 6,000 in attendance at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway. And various pictures of the season-pass-member eventÂ surely back upÂ that number.
That’s pretty darn impressive for a Friday night in March.
The Bucs reported the following players in attendance (during their off time) to mingle with fans: Connor Barth, Da’Quan Bowers, Demar Dotson, Mason Foster, Steven Means, Eric Page, Bobby Rainey, Keith Tandy, Tim Wright, Michael Johnson, Alterraun Verner, Doug Martin, Gerald McCoy Evan Dietrich-Smith, Josh McCown, Louis Murphy and Brandon Myers.
And as Joe’s mentioned previously, theÂ new uniforms look pretty darn sharp in person. Gerald McCoy had an answer for the remainingÂ uniform critics, so he told Tom Krasniqi, of WDAE-AM 620.
â€śHey, just come to the games and watch us win,â€ť McCoy replied when asked about the fans who arenâ€™t too keen on the new uniforms. â€śThey wonâ€™t have anything to say when we start winning.â€ť
Gasp! Could Lovieball fill the stadium? Could there be a return to a dozen years ago, when everywhere you went around town there were people wearing Bucs gear with pride? Damn, that would be something!
