Down and Out weekend for TB Sports

Talk about a bad weekend for sports in the Tampa Bay area...

First off you had the Lightning pounded by the New Jersey Devils in a humbling... no, strike that... humiliating loss on Friday. At least you saw no John Grahame bashing in the retrospect post on Boltsmag...

Saturday - the USF Bulls played a joke of a game in Hartford, Connecticut and it reminded me why I don't watch College Football... It wasn't mistakes that make me uncomfortable with the game, but the ultra slowness of everything. I find the 40 second clock in teh NFL painful enough - but the college game seems even worse... And the all-too-often commercial breaks did there best to lose my interested in the game...

Thankfully I was suffering post-surgical complications Saturday and they kept me tuned in (if my physical suffering needed a mental accompliss).

So the Bulls did what they could and managed to take the title of most-undisciplined-football-team in Tampa Bay away from the Buccaneers...

Not that the Bucs didn't have there own problems this weekend. I'll let Ski tell the tale of that one... And though things took a grim turn, there is still hope.

Of course, the Rays have to be included in this somewhere and Sports Business Journal ranking the franchise the worst in baseball -- for (former) owner Vince Naimoli, for the Uniforms, for the Trop and such -- definately gets them on this bad-weekend list.

And though the Bolts came back from the dead on Sunday Night to end the weekend on a positive note, it was influenced by John Tortorella blasted the players during the first intermission for lackadistical play.

But it's mid-week now... Yet the memory of this weekend's futility still echoes in my memory...
