You’re right, Jon, the Raiders insignia shows a guy with an eyepatch and he’s presumably a pirate. I decided to focus on the Tampa Bay team name instead, to the apparent outrage of Bucs fans everywhere, judging from my email. (I think some of them want to run me over in an SUV.) I’m disappointed, though, that nobody’s linked today’s anti-Bucs article with the piece I wrote last year arguing for New York and against Tampa as the site of the 2004 Republican convention. If the Tampa partisans knew about my pattern of anti-Tampa bromides, they might get really mad at me.
