"When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won their first game last fall, after 18 straight losses, the whole town turned out to celebrate the win of their two-year-old National Football League team. In a city that needs positive identification, the celebration exeplmified some of the new spirit that one senses here in Florida's third largest city, and the team, itself, signifies the city's attempt to make it as one of the big league cities of this nation."
