The Other Football

Some more players and staff got to poke around the Buccaneer's practice facility today after training. More oohs and aahs over the locker room, and the massive equipment room was also added to the tour. The giant shelves of equipment were like archives, sliding on tracks on one side of the room. The other side of the room had rungs of clothes all hung up, along with the helmets and shoes.

Coach Nowak found a helmet that fit him and started calling plays. "Hot Route! Hot Route!"

Truth be told, the Buccaneers staff has been overly welcoming. We even had a visit today from some of the team's staff, including Assistant Head Coach Paul Kelly, who brought his soccer-player daughter out through traffic in the rain to watch the USA train. We definitely appreciate all their help and support.

We guess footballers and football players can get along after all.
