On the Bandwagon
Why do I love the Bucs? Let me take you back to 2002. Growing up a football fan with no team, I cheered for whoever was winning. My Dad’s favorite team was the Miami Dolphins, but who wants to cheer for the same team as their dad? Anyways, after being harassed about being a “bandwagoner” I told pops “whoever wins this will be my team”. Looking back, that may have been the most foolish thing I’ve ever said, what if the Raiders had won? I digress.
Since then my fanatical allegiance to a team on the other side of the United States has astonished most. ” How do you live in California and love the Bucs?”. The answer to that question is easy, now. The question wasn’t east to answer during the Chris Simms years or during the Josh Johnson experiment. Either way watching that’ 02 Bucs defense dominate made me love the Bucs, especially that side of the football. Those teams with Warren Sapp and company stuck it to everybody! They were the best.
That’s why I love the Bucs!
