The NFL announced that it would put the top three games in each team’s history on YouTube, with the top games decided by vote. The results have now been announced, and Bucs fans will get to see Super Bowl XXXVII, the 2002 NFC Championship Game win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and the 2000 shootout against the St. Louis Rams, which they won 38-35. That’s the one that includes a ludicrous lateral between Warrick Dunn and Shaun King.
The Bucs will also be featured in a slightly less appealing game: last year’s last-second loss against Washington, Kirk Cousins’ infamous “You like that?” game. Thankfully, the humiliation of the 2003 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, when Peyton Manning orchestrated an embarrassing, 24-point comeback in the final five minutes and overtime, will not officially be uploaded to YouTube.
I’m a little saddened that the 1999 NFC Championship Game won’t be on YouTube, though it has been in the past, even if it was a Bucs loss. That game was just incredible. I would have liked to see more obscure games from the Bucs’ past as well, like Warren Sapp’s coming out party against the San Francisco 49ers, or the team’s first playoff game in 1979. But this is still a pretty solid group of games, and they should be fun to watch for Bucs fans in the offseason.
