Bucs could feel impact of Rays game



I noticed during last week's Bucs game against Carolina that there were a number of empty seats at Raymond James Stadium.

After checking with the Tampa Sports Authority, I learned that the actual turnstile attendance was 56,125, significantly lower than the stadium's capacity of 65,000.

So, you can only imagine what might occur tonight when the Bucs play the Seahawks opposite the Rays in Game 7 of the ALCS. The Bucs could possibly draw substantially fewer than expected for a prime-time, national television game.

For what it's worth, I'll be there to bring you the action. Not sure how many will be joining me, but I'm very curious to see.
