Hey guys - BAD NEWS!
The horrible experiment of NFL American Football in England continues next year and this time around, its the Bucs who lose a home game because of it. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will "host" the New England Patriots in London's Wembley Stadium on October 25th, 2009, the NFL has announced today.
Not only do the Buccaneers lose home field advantage for a game, have to take a ridiculously long road trip, and have their season interrupted, but they have to do it against Tom Brady (we think) and the New England Patriots. Considering the Bucs are 6-0 at home with struggling San Diego and woeful Oakland left on the schedule and only 3-3 on the road, this is a tough blow for the Bucs.
Yeesh. Thanks a lot, NFL.
