Tom is happy to begin another new painting, a tribute to the Super Bowl LV Champions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers football team. The Buccaneers were regarded as a perennial losing franchise for most of their first two decades of existence due to suffering 26 consecutive losses in their first two seasons (including a winless inaugural season) and 14 consecutive losing seasons from 1983 to 1996. Despite this lack of success, they are the first post-merger expansion team to win a division championship, a playoff game, and host a conference championship game; a feat they accomplished by their fourth season in 1979. Aided by the Tampa 2 defensive scheme, the team improved their image around 2000, culminating in their first Super Bowl title in Super Bowl XXXVII. This remained their only playoff win for nearly two decades until they won their second title in Super Bowl LV.
