For the first time since 2003 — you remember, that year the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl — the Bucs on Saturday night won a postseason game.
It took 18 seasons and was harder than expected, but Tampa Bay defeated Washington 31-23 in an NFC wild-card game to advance to the divisional round of the playoffs.
And Twitter could hardly contain its excitement.
