It’s Too Late Tonight To Be Writing These Things

The Bucs will celebrate the ten-year anniversary of their Super Bowl victory (and the last time they won a playoff game — true story) next Sunday during halftime of the Eagles game. There is a long list of attendees who are scheduled to make it, including Jon Gruden who has to get right back on a plane and get ready to call a Monday night game (and, apparently, not get introduced as the new Vols coach. Bite me, Chucky.) Sapp, Brooks, Lynch, Rice, Alstott, Brad Johnson, Pittman, Jurevicius, and over 40 more have committed to attending. One notable absence is Keyshawn Johnson, who, when asked, said that he had better things to do. I’m just kidding. No one asked because no one gives a shit about Keyshawn anymore.
They’ll bring the Lombardi trophy out and Gruden will hold it up like he did ten years ago and make a small speech thanking the team and the fans. It will be cool and all and I never get tired of seeing footage of that season, but man, it really reminds me that the Bucs haven’t even come close to that kind of success since then. I don’t think the Patriots had a celebration last year of their ten-year anniversary of the 2001 Super Bowl win. Why? Because they’re still going to Super Bowls.
Sorry, I don’t mean to go negative here. It’s been a frustrating day and I really just want to see this team back on top again. I think they’re on the right path and am optimistic. And even though it won’t mean much if they lose this game tomorrow, it will really mean a whole lot if they win it. It might salvage this weekend for me. And when you think about it, I think you’ll agree that it’s really all about me.
