Let Mikey Do It - The A Train Comes Thru for 9/11!

Here in Tampa there will be a very special beginning to the Bucs-Ravens football game this Sunday 9/10; a salute to the firefighters of 9/11 in N.Y.

Its all due a pair of Buccaneers and a local firefighter.

Dave Pacheco, a firefighter in nearby Safety Harbor, Florida, approached the Bucs about tickets for seven visiting NYFD firemen. Mike Alstott, the "A Train" and the Bucs all time leading scorer, and Dave Moore, a longtime Buc, love firefighters, and they came through in spectacular fashion. They produced tickets for the NY firemen, and more.

Sunday when the Bucs take the field, Scott Fox, brothers Danny & Bobby Beyar, Dave King, Cosmo DiOrio, Tommy Pair and Woody Forsyth of the NYFD will be leading the run as the Bucs take the field against the Ravens.

A Tampa Salute to the brave firefighters of 9/11.

Thanks Mike and Dave for the stirring tribute bringing to mind for all Tampa Bay fans the events of 9/11, and the heroes of that terrible day.

Let us never forget!
