Remember Back In The Day…Creamsicle!


I had to make the picture huge, just for all those that forgot what our uni’s used to look like when we were the Yucks, or the Sucks, or the Yuckaneers or the worst, the Suckaneers.  They were creamsicle, we know!!! Most people around the country hate them, and always seem to mention them as one of the worst sports uni’s ever (I personally go with the Nuggets cityscape jerseys of the 90′s).   There are plenty of fans around the Bay Area who you see walking around with the throwback Lee Roy Selmon, the one metioned in the picture above.

There has been talk for two years that we migth run with the retro jerseys in one of our home games, ala San Diego and Buffalo who routinely bring out their retro jerseys.  Buffalo and Saint Diego’s retros though maybe my two favorite jerseys of all time…ours are creamsicle.  Pewter Report is saying today that although they have no official announcement from the team, they have “learned” that the Bucs will bring out the retro’s vs the Packers on November 8th, 2009 at Ray Jay.

It has been over 13 years since the Bucs last rocked these Testaverde proof fits, and I can’t lie, I’m excited.

    Lordy, Lee Roy, my hero, Back in the Day!! Only human I ever saw who could two-gap a double team.

    Personally, I liked the orange unis & could never see what the fuss was about.At the time, no one complained about them; this is, to my recollection, all ex post fact criticism. They were better than the Rams’ of a while back, or Cincy’s now. I was sad when my last orange shirt disintegrated from too many washes a few years ago.
