Sept. 23, 2013. Tampa Bay Florida. Practice was halted today at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training facility after players and coaches became alarmed due to a mysterious white substance found on their practice field. The facility was vacated by team personnel and Buccs general manager Mark Dominik placed a call to local law enforcement.
Within half an hour Department of Homeland Security officials arrived on scene with FBI officials arriving minutes later. Hundreds of onlookers gathered outside what has been dubbed “One Buccaneer Palace” while DOH officials conducted their investigation. After several tense moments investigators signaled the go-ahead to resume practice and that the area was clear of any potential threats.
The Department of Homeland Security officials’ brief investigation revealed that the white substance that had aroused the suspicions of the players and the coaching staff was; in fact, just the endzone.
