fade to orange
Since this likely will be the last time I get to post this vintage Tampa Bay Bucs creamsicle-orange uniform photo of Vinny Testaverde, I’m going take it. Because today’s otherwise meaningless season finale between the Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers at Tampa marked the quarterback’s official retirement from the NFL after 21 years.

It’s too bad the only signifier for it was Carolina sending Vinny in for the final kneel-down to end the game. Given that the site was the same city where he began his career in 1987, I was hoping for something more. If not actual game action for Vinny, then the Bucs should have hauled out some vintage Florida orange, Bucco Bruce-emblazoned uniforms to wear in honor of the occasion.
