in general, Tampa Bay Bucs

When Thor was thrown out of Asgard, it mattered.

All those years that Napoleon spent on Elba, it mattered.

When Lance Armstrong had his bike taken away from him, it mattered.

So, yeah, if you want to guess, Sunday probably means a lot to Lovie Smith. Of course it does. How could it not?

Time was, he was in charge of the sideline in Chicago. And then he was not.

Smith won more than 10 games four times in his nine years in Chicago, including a trip to the Super Bowl in 2006. A man doesn't spend that much time on one sideline without missing it when it's gone. He doesn't turn out the lights without thinking of a lot of moments along the way.
