Tampa Bay and championships never went hand and hand. The Rays were just this small market team that played in a hideous dome. They're now one of the best teams in baseball, eyeing a return to the World Series. The Bucs were perennial losers. Besides their one Super Bowl win in the early 2000s, they're probably known as a bottom-five franchise in the NFL. They now have the GOAT and are going for back-to-back Super Bowls. The Tampa Bay Lightning just secured their second straight Stanley Cup last night. Wherever Tom Brady goes, the city wins. Plain and simple.
This list is outdated now. Tampa added two more championships to their trophy case with the Super Bowl and Stanley Cup. Boston was known as the "City of Champions", but since Brady left, it seems like the magic is gone. Tampa is now the capital of the sports world. Tampa freaking Bay.
With Brady's career coming to an end in a few years (I think), teams need to recruit him to retire in their city. All the major professional teams need to come together and treat Brady like he's a free agent. Wherever he goes, all teams do is win. I don't know what kind of voodoo magic he has. Champa Bay is reaping all the rewards right now.
