TAMPA BAY SPORTS; BUCS, BOLTS, RAYS, ROWDIES…WOW! 

Tampa Bay is popping up as one of the best cities for sports in the country.  

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lightening, Rays and Rowdies sports teams are dominating their leagues making Tampa Bay the hottest sports city in America today.  It's hard to believe, Tampa Bay Sports is getting noticed.   

This is another reason to consider moving to Tampa Bay. (Call me if you are considering buying a property in this great area.  727-219-1706).

In comparing teams with bigger names and deeper legacies as well as markets, Tampa has not always been thought of as a town of champions.  Despite this, the city’s four professional sports teams have all risen to championship glory.  Yep, we are champions!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Football Team Comeback to Super Bowl! 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were founded in 1976 and posted a dishonorable 0-14 record in their initial season with the NFL.  Unfortunately, for many years they held the title as the worst franchise record of any active NFL team.  However, in recent years the Bucs went under the radar in becoming a championship contender. What a comeback!

In 2019, new head coach Bruce Arians arrived assisting in building a dominant defense and explosive offense.  At the end of 2019, the Bucs finished with a 7-9 record.  In 2020, the Bucs surprised the football world by signing Tom Brady in free agency ending his 20-year career with the New England Patriots.  

Brady proved to be an asset as he accelerated the Bucs growth as a team while also attracting talent like All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski and All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown.  The Bucs subsequently won 11 games to earn a playoff position in the Super Bowl.  As a wild card team the Bucs beat Kansas City to win the Super Bowl in 2020.

Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Team is the best in World

Tampa Bay Lightning is one of the best-coach and best-constructed teams in the entire world.  It is nothing short of spectacular that Tampa can present the best hockey talent from around the globe especially from a state in which hockey is not a school sport.  The Lightning, also known as the Bolts, entered the NHL in 1992.  As anticipated for an expansion team, The lightning struggled with a losing record in each of the franchise’s first three seasons.  However, a huge part of the Lightning success has stemmed from their past failures. 

In 2018, after general manager Julien BriseBoise took over the Lightening, they tied the NHL record for most wins in a season 62 games.  Currently the roster is lined up with big-time players who know how to make big-time plays.  One of the best players is their goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy who can get into a serious groove during the season. The Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004, 2020, 2021, and are currently contending for a 2022 championship.  The Lightning play at the Amalie Arena which is one of the best stadiums to visit.

Tampa Bay Rays Baseball World Series Team

While the Bucs have enjoyed the limelight and the Lighting have set the tone, The Tampa Bay Rays have also been close to a championship.  The Rays established themselves in the MLB in1998.  The Rays continue to be baseball’s most puzzling study in creativity: reliant on analytics, relentlessness in their infield shifts, and unconcerned pitching norms.  Despite having the third lowest budget in the MLB the Rays have turned winning on a shoestring budget into an art form.  Despite relocation issues the Rays have enjoyed on-field success that included MLB playoffs in 2019 and an American League East title in 2020 taking them to the world series.  Additionally, in 2021 the Rays clinched the ALE and became the highest-ranking team with a 100-62 record.  This was the Rays first 100-win season in franchise history.

Tampa Bay Rowdies Major League Soccer Team 

It is also important to mention Tampa Bay’s soccer team, The Tampa Bay Rowdies.  The Rowdies have been a part of the Bay since 2008.  This team energy is infectious, making every game exciting.  The team’s swift plays will keep you on your toes, no pun intended.  The Rowdies made it to the United Soccer League Championship in 2021.
