Bucs On The Cusp Of HistoryOctober 24th, 2013
Bucs fans, there is a good reason to watch tonight’s Stinking Panthers-Bucs game (what, you want to watch those !@#$’n% greaseball BlowSux?). Modern Bucs franchise history is afoot.
No, really. This comes from none other than the Custodian of Canton, the great eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.
With a loss to the Stinking Panthers, the Bucs would, for the first time in 36 years, match a franchise mark that not even bumbling Leeman Bennett could accomplish.
With six consecutive home setbacks dating to last November, Tampa Bay could end the evening saddled with its first seven-game home losing streak since 1977.
Thirty-five seasons have passed since the 1977 club followed up the first win in Bucs history, a 33-14 victory at New Orleans, by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 17-7 in the season finale at Tampa Stadium.
At least when you are watching this game, you can tell your children’s children about it when they are sitting in your lap before the fireplace.
Look at the bright side. The losing should wane come January.
