During the 1970s and 1980s, when the Devil Rays and Lightning were years away and the Bucs still were wearing orange jerseys, the Rowdies were arguably Tampa Bay's most popular sports attraction.
"Tampa was a growing area, and as of yet, it didn't have any major professional competition, so I thought people would notice a soccer team a bit more than they might in, say, Philadelphia," he said.
Strawbridge remembers the Rowdies as a "folksy, homey," community-oriented team that connected with fans because it was the only good game in town.

The Tampa Bay Mutiny was one of two teams that Major League Soccer voted out of the tribe two days before the finale of Survivor: Africa and the only thing I can think of is, "Well, at least we don't have to look at those stupid uniforms anymore."
I adopted them because Tampa is my hometown, because the city where I was living at the time of MLS' birth (Indianapolis) bid for, but wasn't awarded a team, and because I lived and died with the old North American Soccer League's Tampa Bay Rowdies.
But seriously, folks, even after six years in the supposed soccer "hotbed" that is Tampa, the Mutiny failed to woo prospective owners, prospective fans, and this past season, prospective victories.

 Tampa Bay Legends
A long time ago in a sports galaxy far, far away, he was known as “Iron Mike,” the most durable and, perhaps, the most recognizable of the area’s first, and most loved, pro franchise, the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
His endurance is practically non-existent, on and off the field, and those heady playing days, including that championship ring he earned with the 1975 Rowdies, are far behind the former sweeper who came to Tampa Bay as a fresh-faced, spindly-legged 18-year-old teenager from Johannesburg, South Africa.
Seven-year-old Mike, a whirling dervish of soccer ability and knowledge and a Manchester United fan, keeps the former Rowdie defender and his much younger, hot, and perky school teacher wife, Kimberly, on their toes, both athletically and scholastically.
