For those who follow me on Twitter, you know that I’m a die-hard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan and have been for decades. With that established, I am BEYOND THRILLED with the new uniforms that the team unveiled yesterday in preparation for the upcoming 2020 season.
Yes, part of that has to do with the EXTREMELY nostalgic look about the new threads (they’re pretty much carbon copied from our Super Bowl era). More than that, though, I love what these uniforms aren’t — hideously gaudy billboards meant for a generation raised on Xbox and Red Bull with numbers befitting a dollar store alarm clock.
I kid you not, people. I wanted to punch my own face every time I saw those ridiculous pieces of crap. Alas, I digress.
I know there were a lot of calls out there for Tampa to return to the cream-sicle duds of their rookie years, but I the early-2000s era was really the right way to go. That’s a time in franchise history that exuded success and professionalism, and frankly with that guy named Brady now under center, that’s kinda the image you’d hope the Bucs would wanna present for themselves once again.
Bottom Line: IJM approves of the Bucs’ new/old uniforms… bigtime.
Have a great day, y’all, and keep washing those hands!!!
