Departure Time Shouldn’t Matter

October 22nd, 2009

Joe’s good friend, “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620 yesterday banged the drum the Bucs were making a terrible mistake flying to London Friday for their game against the Patriots.

Former Bucs general manager Bruce Almighty had a unique insider view on why the Bucs were leaving Friday.

Vacation Man of, who knows something about London, says it doesn’t matter when the Bucs leave.

The skepticism and criticism is based on the lingering theory the Glazer family that owns the team is trying to cut corners. Obviously, this route saves one night of hotel bills. I’m not totally discounting that theory because there might be something to it.

But my question is this: Does it really matter when the Bucs go to London?

I mean, they could have gone over there in July, had training camp there, gotten used to the food and climate and even started to develop British accents and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.

They’re 0-6 and they’re playing the Patriots.

The only suspense in this game for Joe will be how many touchdowns Tom Brady throws.
