It's Back.....




Yes!!! It is football season again! I don't watch too many games... just the ones the Buccaneers play in, the playoffs, and the Superbowl, of course. The Bucs should have a better season this year than last year... last year was the pits. I did not care that much about football until we had a local team, I got to know the players and that made it much more fun.

I miss Warren Sapp. Yes, I know he was a real bad boy, but he was always full of surprises and kept things interesting. I missed Mike Alstott when he was out, and he hasn't played quite the same since he has been back. John Lynch was a class act, and I will miss him too... as well as some of the other players that have moved on to other teams or retired.

John Gruden has hopefully made some good choices for this year's players. Time will tell. I am hoping for an exciting season... maybe not the Superbowl but at least a good showing into the playoffs!

Who are your favorite teams? Even if you are not from the States, do you follow American football? "JPR" are you still gonna root for the Bucs?

I love love love football but don't follow it like I used to. The Packers are my team!

I'm from Kansas City and we're definitely hometown proud about our Chiefs!

As painful as it will probably be, yes I will be rooting for the Bucs. I will actually just be happy if they make the playoffs this year given the gaps the salary cap has left in the team; especially on the offensive line.

I follow three teams: The Cowboys, the Texans, and the Titans. I used to follow Denver until Elway retired. It looks to be a bleak year on all three accounts.
