We Should Know We’re Better Than Arena Football

Carlos Valderrama wouldn't put up with this bullshit, and neither should we.Our beloved Devil Rays are a game ahead of the first place Red Sox in the loss column.

We’ve beaten the Yankees for the 58th time, we’ve won our last 5 ballgames, we’re 6 games over .500, and we’re atop the wild card standings.

And yet thanks to the front page of the stupid Devil Rays pregame media notes, I still have something to bitch about.

All they had to say was, with a win tonight, our Devil Rays will have the longest home winning streak of any Tampa Bay franchise in the four major sports leagues.

But, no because these are supposed to be your new kinder, gentler Devil Rays. So instead we got this ridiculous and insulting table:

Longest Home Winning Streaks by Tampa Bay Teams
Bucs…………. 6 (twice, 1996-97 and 1999)
Lightning….. 9 (2004)
Storm………. 12 (2004-2006)

What the fuck is a Storm? An indoor football team? And it’s not even the one Kurt Warner played for?

Why in the name of all that is holy would a Major League Baseball team compare itself to an Arena Football League team?

Was this meant as a slap in the face of Carlos Valderama, star of the much missed Tampa Bay Mutiny?

Were records for the hi-A Florida State League Tampa Yankees unavailable? Or the storied Tampa Tarpons of yore? Or the USF Lady Bulls volleyball team?

But what can we expect from certain decision makers who think defiling the beloved name of our franchise will cause people to forget the past in a way that simply fielding an awesome ass-kicking team wouldn’t? Strange how even Gheorghe Muresan managed to see through that.

Everyone else is respekanizing our Devil Rays. It’s time for management to start doing the same.

Why Devil Rays Communications Department, Why?
