From Zoltan to Zombie
So the Bucs are committed to bringing back the “Z.” We already saw a couple of them being flashed during the recent series with the D-backs in Chase Field.
This is not welcomed news for a lot of you fans, who can’t help associating the pet 2012 symbol of solidarity with the team’s eventual collapse.
Still, spearheaded by several clubhouse leaders — Andrew McCutchen and A.J. Burnett among them — the Bucs are serious about continuing the “Z” tradition.
Fine. But I’ve got an idea for a compromise.
Zoltan, the dude of “Where’s My Car?” fame who was the original inspiration for the sign, is so last year. He had his chance.
Many of the Bucs are ardent followers of shows such as “The Walking Dead.”
So — OK, stay with the “Z”.” But now it stands for “Zombie.”
Bonus point: And the Bucs’ new in-house victory song is “Dead Man’s Party,” by Oingo Bongo. It’s a match made it Undead Heaven.
Have we got a deal?
