As most of you know, I was invited as special guest to attend the Saturday Night reception for the 1979 Bucs. The Glazers spared no expense on this one, let me tell you. Flying in were most of the members of the team and their families. At the end of the night it became apperant we were very special to be there, as NO members of the press were invited, just Bucs players and family.
So I would like to share this with anyone who is interested.
Some things to look for...
- Thats assistant coach Tom Bass in the wheelchair, architect of McKays 3-4 defense. Wayne Fontes would become the D coordinator in the 80s.
- Lee Roy Selmon had no less than 10 family members at the event.
- In the Weight Lifting room, those are garage type doors that lift up so players can feel like they are working out in the elements if they feel in the mood to do so.
- Where Ed Glazer addressed the Bucs, that was the room they use for BIG press conferences, like Morris and Dominik being announced, Alstott retirement, etc. The second room you see is the press conference room you see after the game.
