Buccaneers vs Falcons in the WTF Bowl?

I didn’t get to enjoy much of the game yesterday, since The Wife and I took some time after church to explore the Miami area. Still, after watching to the ESPN SportsCenter highlight reel this morning, I wish I had gotten to do more than just listen to the last quarter over Internet radio.
