Champa Bay? Title Town? Tompa Bay?
Following the amazing stomp-down that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers delivered to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs — which followed in the wake of the Lightning’s Stanley Cup victory, the Rays’ World Series stand and the Rowdies’ USL Eastern Conference win — pundits everywhere were offering up new nicknames for the winningest region around.
There’s Tompa Bay, enshrining you-know-who as our namesake champeen.
Or Champa Bay, which is more all-embracing, covering all of our winning teams.
And then there’s Title Town. Besides being pleasingly alliterative, this one has an extra kick: It’ll aggravate Boston! (And Green Bay, but they really shouldn’t be in the running because all their titles were from one team.)
