ON THIS DAY IN BUCCANEER HISTORY27th November 1983 - The Repus BowlTampa Bay Buccaneers 33 Houston Oilers 24The Repus Bowl! Why Repus? It's Super spelt backwards and this game was so named because both teams were 1-11 and deemed to be as far away from the real thing as possible. The Bucs won it thanks to an offensive performance that led to five touchdowns, the first time in franchise history they had achieved that to that point. Jack Thompson led the way with four scoring passes, although three interceptions set up 21 of the Bucs' points on the day. Click here for game reports, pictures and statistics from this game

REMEMBERING WHAT A WIN WASThe Bucs had only gone two games without a win. My last win in person was November 2009. So to have finally made it back across the Atlantic to see a game in person and it being a 30-10 victory on Monday Night Football, well for me it was a very special night.To have been made so welcome at the What the Buc tailgate, to have met so many old friends and so many new ones was a massive highlight. I must have posed for over 100 pictures with different people - every one was a pleasure to have even been asked.Sitting in section 147 was a great atmosphere with some amazing people, none better or more special than Scott Bradford from Bucs Life and his son Tyler. Normally I watch Monday Night games in the middle of the night in the UK - this one was a really great experience.So thank you to one and all. To everyone who has made this trip so special for me and thank you to the real Super Bowl champions who turned up last night to make me feel so welcome with a great victory.
