All with a guaranteed 50% chance of working. I like those odds.

"Dan Mathis of Tampa has a different sort of tradition.

``It's kinda weird,'' he says. ``I wait for the day after a win to wear my Bucs paraphernalia. And then I wear it all.''

...uh, that's not called tradition -- that's usually called bandwagoning!

Oh, and I fully expect this thread to pass the 300+ mark with some serious schmack;)

Go Bucs!

Warren Sapp is the greatest to ever play the game.
2003-01-16 11:26:42 AM  
I have found the best way to support my team is not to go, not watch, and not care. I think it is working, how are the Cowboys doing? </sarcasm>

I always drink a lot of beer before the game to help my beloved

[image from too old to be available]

I guess I need to increase my dosage.
2003-01-16 11:28:28 AM  
Did those fat chicks have that bear when the Bucs played the Steelers?
2003-01-16 11:28:35 AM  
That has as much chance of working for the Bucs as setting yourself on fire so your spirit helps them win. E-A-G-L-E-S-EAGLES!
2003-01-16 11:29:05 AM  
The real question is why the hell they are the tampa BAY bucs. Do they play in the bay? Are they on a floating statium? Pure sillyness.
2003-01-16 11:31:18 AM  
Well, you can't very well have Buccaneers terrorizing a city... they terrorize ships, and other sea-going vessels.

"Warren Sapp is the greatest to ever play the game." should tell him that when you see him on the golf course next week. Also tell him to put a jersey on. Maybe then we can see him, 'cause he's usually invisible in the playoffs.

Slow news day in Tampa?

"Hey Slick, instead of doing anything resembling journalistic integrity, go out and interview some fat ugly Buccaneer fan chicks that haven't yet discovered that Beanie Babies are useless. Gimme 500 words by 10am"
2003-01-16 11:31:59 AM  
Great NFC championship game comin up.... the only sure thing is when you see my man McNair put the horns up kid!

Go Titans!
2003-01-16 11:32:19 AM  
My football traditions? I watch the Miller Lite Cat-fight commercial and listen 40-year old married women with families complain about it (if you dont get this, read down a few farking threads).
2003-01-16 11:32:52 AM  
Are there any Bengal terditions out there????????????????? Oh Yes, Cry in your beer and tell the world you are going to have the best teamin the league next year. You also have to get a new coach every year.
2003-01-16 11:33:47 AM  
You're right, Borg9. :)

Let me just say that if the Bucs need voodoo to squeak one out against the farkin' Detroit Lions, they're in for a whole lotta trouble on Sunday.

Then again, the Vet does seem like a fitting place for practicing the Dark Arts.
2003-01-16 11:34:34 AM  

"Are there any Bengal terditions out there?????????????????"

You mean other than losing?
2003-01-16 11:34:47 AM  
Damn, this is like an episode of South's like they dug up the year 2000 and found these chicks.

"Game day always begins the same way for them. Arnold, who lives in Pasco County, uses her computer's instant messenger to write, ``Who let the dogs out?'' Estevez replies, ``Who! Who! Who! Who!'' "

Bucs fans Susan Estevez and and Tami Arnold...

Holy crap! I thought Raiders fans were scary looking!
2003-01-16 11:35:52 AM  
I am a Browns fan. I think the Bengals should clain to be from Kentuckey. Ohio has a team.
2003-01-16 11:35:53 AM  
I'm torn, should this be [image from too old to be available] or ?

Four downs & 100 yards - Americans.
2003-01-16 11:37:38 AM  
Who let the dogs out... best song evar.
/sarcasm (hello!)
2003-01-16 11:38:04 AM  
Warren Sapp's not even the best player on his own defensive line.

His line on Sunday against the Niners: 1 assisted tackle, 0.5 sacks. Totally dominant.
2003-01-16 11:38:33 AM  
It dose not matter who wins the Bucks/Eagles game. They are going to be playing Oakland and will be stomped into a greasy spot on there own 1 yard line
2003-01-16 11:38:52 AM  
my question is where is the news article about tampa bay fans practicing voodoo against the opposing team? nothing like fluff...
2003-01-16 11:39:36 AM  
"what's that?"

"sale monkey!"
2003-01-16 11:40:54 AM  
Get a farkin' life.

"Now go do that voodoo that you doo, so well!!!"
2003-01-16 11:45:59 AM  
Tampa and Tennessee. There's your Super Bowl. No voodoo crap, no nothing, just say it and I have a 25% chance of being right. Yay me!
2003-01-16 11:49:20 AM - anti-Sapp site (mock of his qbkilla site)

Eagles will beat the shiat out of the overrated paper champions
2003-01-16 11:49:56 AM  
its definately not very interesting.. considering everyone knows this just from watching movies with sports in them as a kid.. like major league.
2003-01-16 11:51:53 AM  
ya gotta have a hobby...

Oh by the way I need tickets, can anyone help me.

I have special lucky football underwear, and my boyfriend does a rally scotch if we're behind. But we're talking about college football, not pro, so.....there you go.

And my older brother eats the same meal before every game.
2003-01-16 11:56:26 AM  
I used a voodoo doll of Rich Gannon last week, and it didn't work. I left it out and it became old and decrepit. Oh...I guess it did work.
2003-01-16 11:57:09 AM  
Poor kid doesn't have a chance.....

[image from too old to be available]

Might as well wear a 'KICK ME' sign on his ass.
2003-01-16 11:57:46 AM  
Oh man I have to wear my Bama boxers to every game. Before we leave for the game I touch my framed copy of Sports Illustrated from the 1992 National Championship team.
2003-01-16 12:02:04 PM  
I have to have a couple of pre-game cocktails to ensure victory
2003-01-16 12:02:21 PM  
Nolesnumber1: is indeed hilarious. Especially the "order playoff t-shirt" link.
2003-01-16 12:04:52 PM  
Warren Sapp as quoted

"The only problem I've ever had with the man is that he doesn't put his work behind his mouth"
-on teammate Keyshawn Johnson

So friggin true. He can't catch the ball.. his widdle arms are too frail. It's like trying to catch a watermelon with chopsticks.

Chick3_16: "All with a guaranteed 50% chance of working. I like those odds."

Actually, it's more like a 50% chance against the spread.

I always have a bagful of airline bottles of fine rye whiskey that I have custom labeled 'victory juice' when I'm at a game (the 3 down variety). My seatmates and I suck 'em back when the 'team' needs a boost.

It only works in ensuring victory 50% of the time, but it works in ensuring public drunkenness 100% of the time. Them's my kinda odds.
2003-01-16 12:07:32 PM  
Doesn't matter, the Titans are going to win it all this time around.

2003-01-16 12:12:41 PM  
I already screwed myself with the Packers by wearing underwear during the playoff game. So now I'm not EVER wearing underwear ever again, and I don't care who wins the Superbowl.
2003-01-16 12:20:16 PM  
here's my obligatory response:

E A G L E S !!

2003-01-16 12:21:10 PM  
*sigh* All I have is my lucky eyepatch. It does help when you're seeing-double drunk,though.
2003-01-16 12:21:39 PM  
I'm surprised there aren't any asshat, smelly Europeans in here trying to claim that they have the "real" football.
2003-01-16 12:22:48 PM  
I'm a cryin' Jets fan, but the following quote about sums it up. I don't know who said it, but it was posted right here on Fark:

The Bucs will win, because we have a pirate ship, and you don't.

So there ya have it.

I'm praying the Titans and the Bucs win this week, but who am I kidding. It's gonna be the Eagles and the Raiders in The Big Game(tm), and I'll be rootin' for the Eagles then, but who am I kidding, the Raiders are getting rings this year, but -man-, I hope I'm wrong. Who, -am- I kidding?
