now 3 days to go..............

 

 

Arenafoot —Notice those last two posts mention the "Tampa Bay Rowdies" in the fine print. I'm sure you know they were a USFL football team for Tampa, FL. I know you love Arena Football, obviously, so I thought you might have noticed that. Also love that Busch Gardens Dark Continent mention too.

The newspapers ads are from March-April 1982.....

USFL = Tampa Bay Bandits (owned by Burt Reynolds) 1983-1985

 

I had to look up to see what the TB Rowdies was actually...... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tampa_Bay_Rowdies_(1975%E2%80%9393)

part of the North American Soccer League - at that time.

Woops, you're absolutely right Arenafoot! I knew that and should have googled what I was talking about first. I confused my leagues and documentaries. Watched "30-for-30" on the history of the USFL, and "Once In A Lifetime" on the history of the Cosmos and NASL. Wires crossed. Still cool to see it in your National Pac-Man Day advertisements though!
