Bucs' fans got that left out feeling

Poor Bucs’ fans.

The rest of us NFL buffs are getting ready to watch our favorite teams play their first game today and indulge in this annual rite of fall.

Some will be able to watch at home.

Others will head to a nearby sports bar with NFL Sunday Ticket.

Not Bucs’ fans.

Not unless they want to drive to some joint in South Florida with the NFL package to see them play the Cleveland Browns.

Or just listen on radio.

The first blacked-out regular season game in the 13-year history of Raymond James Stadium is why.

Of course, local Bucs’ fans could relent, drive to Tampa and buy a ticket to the game.

Which is what the Glazer family and the NFL want.

I wouldn’t count on it.
