Creamsicles Aren’t Fashionable

November 3rd, 2009

A lot of fans are geeked at the prospect of the Bucs breaking out the creamsicle uniforms this Sunday when the Bucs face the Packers.

Some fans are a bit more cynical, thinking it’s prophetic that the Bucs would be wearing the creamsicles as they face a winless season square in the face.

But Bucs center Jeff Faine simply doesn’t like the creamsicles because, well, they are not fashionable, readers are informed by Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.

“I think there’s a reason they changed the color scheme,” Faine said of the Bucs’ switch from their old orange and white uniforms.

The Bucs, of course, will be shedding the pewter and red this weekend for the Creamsicle look they bore in 1976. While most players seem excited about the change, Faine is not.

“It’s an opportunity to go out there and hopefully sell a couple more jerseys for the Glazers,” Faine said, referring to the Bucs owners. ” But I’m not a huge, huge fan of it.

“It’s part of the legacy of the Buccaneers and it’s a throwback game and we’re honoring Lee Roy Selmon, so it’s a good opportunity to wear them.”

Joe was geeked to learn the creamsicles were coming back. He still remembers Doug Williams falling down, sitting on his rear end, and hitting a wide open tight end Jimmie Giles in the end zone for a touchdown, all wearing the creamsicles.

Now that the Bucs are on a horrid losing streak, Joe doesn’t like the idea of wearing the creamsicles. It’s like a bad omen or something.

    I still have several from the old days. Some don’t fit like they used to. Only thing to look forward to is to see the old colors again. Even if its only one more time.

    Phooey on Faine – he’s certainly not fashionable!

    A brown paper sack costs less than 99 cents at Publix.

    Is there really a reason to bring up the Bucs past? I THOUGHT the days of the Tampa franchise being referred to as the YUKS were done.

    I guess this weekend proves that I was wrong!

    The nerve of Faine to suggest the Glazers are trying to make money any way they can. Cut him and kick him to the side of the road. That will teach him a lesson he won’t forget as he leaps for joy and says “I’m free, I’m free.”

    Hey do you think the Glazers will release a statement condemning Jeff Faine’s statement. I can read it now “The Bucs are not and have never been out to fleece our fans in the past or with the upcoming throw back jersey’s”

    Heck Faine better watch out that he doesn’t get suspended for those anti-Glazer comments! 🙂
