Attention Mike Alstott fans! No matter if Mike retires or returns to
the Buccaneers, our favorite player will still be the A-Train!
I have decided to turn this website into a fan website for Mike,
a place where, if his playing years are truly over, that his fans
can come and relive the memories, share our favorite A-Train
stories and pictures, catch up on what he is doing, and let him
know that the his fans are always going to support him in whatever
direction his life and career may take.
I need your help! I am looking for photos and videos about Mike,
stories about your favorite moments on and off the field. I have
received hundreds of e-mails from people about how Mike has
made a personal impression on them that has stuck with them.
His charity work and his fan friendly demeanor has endeared him
to many, and I would like to use this site as a means for us fans
to showcase our memories and to show Mike that we are
grateful for the memories and hope that there are many more
to come, in football or in the community.
Send all stories and pictures to this link:
A-Train Pictures and Stories
Please include your name and as much information as you would
like with your stories, I will post them in their entirety. Please include your
e-mail address. If you have a video of Mike and you are not sure how
to convert it, e-mail me and I will walk you through it.

I am in no way involved with any group or person but
attempting to do this. I have no ties to Mike Alstott
or his family in any way. I'm just a big fan.
This site was originally started December 11th, 2006 as an online petition to try to
convince coach Jon Gruden to give Mike Alstott, overwhelmingly everyone's
favorite player and Buccaneer, to get the ball extensively in the last game of
the 2006 season, December 31st, 2006. In only 21 days 4,763 people
signed the petition and over 20,000 hits to this website. A printed copy of
the list and of this website was delivered to Raymond James Stadium on
the day of the last game, which may have been the last game of Mike Alstott's
