There was a time when you’d leave Tampa Stadium after a Bucs home game and stuck to your car’s windshield were 4 free Bucs tickets to the game you just saw. It was that bad.
My how times have changed. 2020 has been one hell of a year for us Tampa Bay sports fans! The Lightning’s amazing run this season was capped off by winning their second Stanley Cup in team history (2004, 2020).
And, the Rays incredible 2020 season continues as the American League Champions are playing the powerhouse trillionaire L.A. Dodgers in the World Series. It’s the Rays’ second stint in the Fall Classic. They had lost in 2008 to the Phillies 4-games-to-1.
So, here we are in the midst of the 2020 NFL season. Many who cover the NFL, as well as Tampa Bay fans and enthusiasts, feel this Buccaneers team can actually go to the Super Bowl, which, fittingly for the State of Florida’s incredible 2020 sports scene, is being played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
All we need now is our beloved Tom Brady to at least get the Bucs to the Super Bowl. It’s still a fantasy of this Bucs fan, but as the season goes on, it seems to become more and more of a reality. I don’t like guessing. I don’t like using “what if” or “probably” or “could” … and words of the like. I just want to see them at least play in the Super Bowl.
All this winning by all three of Tampa Bay’s sports franchises at the same time is something new to us. Watching the Bolts win the Stanley Cup was super unique because, well, it’s a Florida team that won, and I seriously love that … because everyone outside of the Sunshine State hates our teams. I explain this in my book The Stigma of Sports in Florida on Amazon.
Everyone except us hates our Florida teams. The pride I have as a Tampa Bay sports fan in 2020 is immeasurable! … Having the Rays win the World Series and the Bucs making it to the Super Bowl are my current sports fantasies. Not too much to ask, right?
Take it all in Tampa Bay fans. This is the best time to be alive as a sports fan rooting for our great teams. Take it all in. It won’t last forever.
