ON THIS DAY- 9/16/1990: Vinny, DONT DO IT!!!

Thats what we cried. The debate rang out throughout the stadium. We were actually 1-0, had beated the  Lions on the road, we scored 38 points on them, not too shabby. But the Rams with QB "Chriss" Everette built up a 21-0 lead in the 2nd qtr. Vinny threw a nice TD to make it 21-7, and the Bucs got the ball back with a minute left. Some fans were like..." Go for it!!"  The rest of us with common sense were saying " Sit on it!"

Why sit on it they asked?

Then it happened. 

A Vinny Pick 6. Its a special, colorful (to the rest of us) pick 6, unlike any other. 

I remember in 2000 facing Vinny and the Jets, and he threw a pick6 FOR us, and Gene Deckerhoff said..." Oh you've done that here before havnt you son!"

Here is one of them.
