World, Meet Danny Dimes

It was an extraordinarily, beautiful Sunday afternoon in Tampa, Florida. Days like these are the reason so many people pay us a visit. Sun shining, the sky a beautiful bright blue and just enough of a September breeze to make Continue reading

0-For-Quarterbacks: The Tampa Bay Way

I am allergic to cat dander. My girlfriend is allergic to latex. Unfortunately for their fans, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization suffers from a far worse affliction. They… are allergic to quarterbacks. Lost in the woefulness of Jameis Winston’s three Continue reading

Bruce Arians hired, Tampa Bay skeptical

In 2008, Tampa Bay hired a man named Barry Melrose to coach their beloved hockey team.  That experiment lasted only 16 games.  Fortunately, it wasn’t long afterwards that the organization found the man they wanted in Jon Cooper, who has Continue reading

My Sports Week, Part Three: My Hypothetical Lunch with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This is the third installment of my uber-busy sports week.  The first involved driving to Orlando to see Jimmy Butler’s debut with the 76ers.  The second involved “watching” the Florida Gators in their annual tune-up before Florida State weekend.  As Continue reading

A Wolf in Sleek Clothing: Your first ever FitzMagic Caption Contest!

Oh, how I love a good caption contest so let’s have another one, shall we? Tampa is giddy over their new starting quarterback… and I’m not referring to the guy they drafted number one. After watching the bearded back-up Ryan Continue reading

Making a case for Baker Mayfield

Your no-frills, glass half empty, glass half full, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2017-18 season preview

I have an oddball group of friends who love to talk to me about sports. This one friend, for example, swears Jameis Winston is primed and ready to throw for 5,000 yards this season.  We even bet a dinner on Continue reading

New England Patriots trade Jimmy Garoppolo and other unfounded falsehoods from the modern day media

I placed a wager with a friend last NFL off-season. Convinced that Mike Glennon was the hottest commodity on the market, my friend figured that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who already had their quarterback of the future in Jameis Winston, would Continue reading

Chumpservations, Vol. 37: Back-up quarterbacks, Big Winners, Back To School and one Beautiful Bash Brother Bromance

Here are some quick thoughts from a wild opening weekend to our football season. Back It Up I’ve often wondered about the mindset of the backup quarterback.  Often jokingly referred to as the best job in professional sports (because you Continue reading

Flogging Draft Night

I went to last year’s Buccaneers Draft Party.  After all, it was a big event. The lowly (for far too long) Tampa Bay Buccaneers had earned the dubious distinction of drafting first in 2015.  I say dubious because the rights Continue reading
