REAR ENTRIES: NIT Hair?

BUCS WANT SELL-OUT OPENER: The Bucs are pulling out all the stops to get fans to buy tickets for the regular season opener. Well, maybe not all the stops or else beer would be free and the halftime show would involve strippers and Jell-O. But this is still a pretty good attempt.
Fans attending the game will be treated to a commemorative Ronde Barber gym sack, while also receiving 50% off all concessions (excluding alcohol) in both General and Club levels, and being offered free parking in select lots.
It’s a gym BAG. I have never heard it called a gym SACK in my life and now that I have I don’t like the sound of it. The free parking is a great enticement because that’s usually the first thing out of people’s mouths when they start adding up the cost of a game. The game will be used to commemorate Barber’s 200th consecutive start, so let’s all hope he doesn’t tear an ACL in camp and blow this whole idea out of the water.
THE KID CAN PLAY: Pewter Report has a good article on Tiquan Underwood and his struggle to make the team. He seems to think he’s in a pretty large pool of equal receivers.
“It brings about competition. Once you get past V-Jax (Vincent Jackson), it’s just a bunch of younger guys trying to make a name for themselves in this league.”
I’m going to say Mike Williams feels pretty good about his chances, too. But I do think Arrelious Benn may get overshadowed by some of the younger (can you believe Benn is older than some of them?) receivers.
I’m still trying to figure out if Underwood’s hair is championship material or not. I dig the retro look, but the hair needed to have been cool at some point in history to give it credibility. This would be like a white guy showing up with a Flock of Seagulls haircut. Yes it’s retro and bold, but still…
CAPTAIN FEAR NEEDS A BIGGER PADDLE: So I hear you guys had some rain recently? I’ll see your hurricane and raise you 106 degree heat. Someone go apologize to Al Gore and beg him to tell us how to end this shit. But nothing that involves me giving up my spotted owl egg omelets. God, those are awesome.
Anyway, someone caught Captain Fear doing his Marcel Marceau bit during the storm last week. Pretty funny. But get all that stuff cleaned up by next week because that when I get there and I don’t need a bunch of debris and washed-up syringes messing up my visit.
