Final Crowd Tally — 51,533September 9th, 2012
The opening-day crowd of 51,533 was about 250 up on last year’s first game. Hey, it’s something.
And one would think that the bad weather around the Bay area didn’t help potential walk-up sales.
At least those in attendance this season were treated to good football, and a good overall game. And they were loud.
“The crowd was definitely good, into it, man,” Aqib Talib said. “If we can get those tickets sold, please fans, it would be so much better. We’re going to give them a show, man. Come out and check us out. We need them just as bad as they need us. The definitely helped so much.”
Joe doubts blackouts will go away anytime soon. But if somehow the Bucs can rip off wins in New York and/or Dallas, those with cash across Tampa Bay might just be inspired to see what the New Schiano Order is all about.
