Or, at least, the link to it. It's a fun read.

If youíre finding it hard to muster up any hatred for a team thatís so non-threatening and meek, check yourself. Have you ever been to Tampa?

Itís a humid - Yes it is
, murky - ??? We have some pretty clear water here...don't know what else he means.
, wrinkled mess of curmudgeonly old people - There are many of them...they are predominately your grandparents. :D
, bat-**** Scientologists - I thought they were everywhere?
and young people with bleached hair - They come in all colors down here...no dominance of bleach.
, a weakness for Smirnoff Ice - Smirnoff Ice is good
, and an affinity for wearing those weird visor hats that college football coaches love so much. - I love visors...I also have a pair of those camo cargo shorts.

I get the intended humor throughout, but I had to remark on a couple of items.
1. The Cowher comment. BC did stuff like that all of the time. Remember the onsides kick in SB XXXV? How about the first game he ever coached? He checked his package and pulled off a fake punt against Houston...that got us the win, if I remember correctly. If your going to take a jestful slap at Cowher, at least have it grounded in some type of reality.

2. Admonishing the local Bucs fans, when Steeler fans share in some of the embarrassment. There are just as many Steeler fans living here as there are Buc fans. I never in a million years thought this game would be blacked out. Too bad, it'll probably be sold out by game time.

3. The acumen of Floridians when it comes to football. Buc fans may be a little fickle, but we know our football down here and have put up a pretty good reputation. We don't joke about that kind of stuff down here son.

Nice article aside from that nonsense. :D
