Creamsicle Buccaneers

There are iconic uniforms, and then there are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beautifully quirky orange and red set, worn from the team's inception in 1976 until 1996. Unfortunately, this look is far more associated with losing than with winning, and never more to more hilarious effect than in that inaugural season. In the midst of a 0-14 campaign, coach John McKay was asked by a reporter after a game what he thought of his team's execution... to which he replied, "I'm in favor of it!"
