Eight years is a long time between victories on Monday night, and even though Hank Williams and his rowdy friends couldn’t make the trip, it was as memorable a victory as Tampa’s had in a long while.  Sold out stadium, prime time football, and some unfinished business from early 2003.

The Good, Bad, & The Ugly

by Erik Sabol on August 13, 2011
