Playoff Bound Bucs Face 49’ers

The playoff bound Buccaneers head to San Francisco Sunday to take on the 49ers at Monster Park.  Tampa enters the contest at 9-and-5, having already won the NFC South division with last week’s 37-3 rout of Atlanta.  Ronde Barber returned an interception for a touchdown, while Michael Spurlock became the first player in franchise history to return a kickoff for a score.  Earnest Graham had 22 carries for 79 yards and a TD to go with five catches for 40 yards for the Bucs, who have won of their last six games.  The Niners are coming off a 20-13 home victory over Cincinnati last Saturday.  Shaun Hill threw for 197 yards and a touchdown, while Frank Gore rushed for 138 yards to help San Francisco improve to 4-and-10 on the year.  Hill, who was making his first NFL start in place of the injured Trent Dilfer and Alex Smith, will get the nod once again this week.

    I’m reaching out you to tell you about a tool that’ll help you increase your user base and blog traffic. We at, a vibrant sports community, just launched our NewsPulse section, a constant stream of the best sports stories from all around the internet, including sports blogs, news sites, and more.

    We have a few free widgets that’ll increase your exposure. Similar to Digg and other sites, when stories are voted up on our platform, they rise to the top and more users see them. Including any one of our widgets in your template will allow your readers to submit your story on our site. We also have an external widget that’ll let your own readers vote the story up in our section.

    I’d encourage you to begin submitting all of your articles to the section for three reasons:

    1) Free exposure to more readers and increased referral traffic to your blog.

    2) Search engine benefits, leading to increased search engine traffic. These will be dofollow links, meaning that your article title will directly link to your site and the anchor text (and tags on the page) will help to build keyword relevancy in the search engine ranks.

    3) The sports fans at RootZoo will really enjoy your work. I’m writing to you because I know that you produce quality work consistently and I know that introducing our readers to your writings will results in a win-win for everyone.

    We have a blogging tools page that’ll make it really easy for you to include the right code based on your blog settings. Most importantly, this will give your readers (many who probably already visit the site) very easy access to submitting your articles to the NewsPulse. Make sure to select the tab that matches up with your blog type (Blogger, WordPress, etc.) and the submission process will be dynamic and easy.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and we really look forward to working with you. You have a great blog that I know our readers will love. If you have any questions about this, don’t hesitate to ask me as I’ll be more than glad to help.

    My best,
