Cannot wait for this one!
Heck yeah. The mob will be on fire.
Come on Fannies,lets top our season opener(3K plus) at the gate this saturday night. Tell all your friends about the game.
We can do it!
Please stop calling us FANNIES...lol
Chris,you weren't even born when the nickname "Fannies" was being used.
Oh, I know. It's just that it doesn't help the fact that FANNIES means "VAGINAS" in British slang &, of course, "ASSES" in American slang. Pick your poison! LOL!
I didn't know that. Sorry.
I learned the hard way years ago, when I told the then soon to be father-in-law of my British wife that "I smacked her fannie to get her going." I was then explained of the subtle differences in English English and American-English...
Haha! I would of loved to see the look on your soon to be father-in-laws face when you said that.
Mickey,I've meet you at Blackbaud Stadium a couple of times. The last time was at the Bolton friendly a couple of years ago. I want a stadium like Blackbaud for the Rowdies!
Lots of teams should have a stadium like that one
If you've ever seen Jasper Carrot's "Carrot Gets Rowdie" where he interviews people at Tampa Bay Center (RIP) and tries to suppress his laughter when people admit to him that they're "fannies," it's classic if you know the gag.
Two countries separated by a common language.
I checked Youtube,it's not on there. I'll keep trying.
I've got it, I'll try to get that clip up soon and see if the YouTube police leave it or not.
If you've never seen the whole program, it's more nostalgic than hilarious, but that's why I enjoyed it so much.
I admit to wanting to see this clip now.
Here you go:

First of all, goodness people sound completely different now. Secondly, nice close up of the boob shot. And C) good stuff, thx for posting
Wow! The memories of Tampa Bay Center. That wasn't a bad mall.
Do you remember the Soccer Kick store on the first floor?
Thanks for posting that Kenn.
I don't remember that so much as a lot of other snippets: the movie theater, the trees on the lower level (one of which had my and my then-girlfriend's initials carved into it), the TGI Friday's, and when the Bandits had a shop on the upper level and sold game jerseys and I, starving college student, passed on buying one. Big mistake. Huge.
Have to chime in and say thanks to Kenn for posting that. There was a great sub shop in Tampa Bay Center where we would get some sandwiches to take (sneak) into the game in an umbrella back when you could actually bring one into the game. My how times have changed.
Thanks for posting vid. Very cool indeed.
I didn't say the boobs were nice.
