If Tampacuse were a location, would it be Tampa, where the Lightning have seen their roster increasingly stocked with products from the Syracuse Crunch, including their head coach? Or is Tampacuse Syracuse, New York,,which has become the beneficiary of the Lightning's current prospect depth and devotion to player development?
The phrase, mashing up Tampa and Syracuse, became a popular hashtag on Twitter this season from both fanbases. Tampacuse, it seems, is a force to be reckoned with and something to take pride in.
And now we've put it on a shirt.
"Greetings from Tampacuse" embraces the blue and white - the primary colors of both the Bolts and the Crunch - as well as orange that is tied to both Tampa and Syracuse.
