Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream: Will those Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders ever learn?

For the fifth year in a row, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders had to fight their way through the haunted mazes at Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream.

You would think they would have learned their lesson. But alas, the ladies were subjected to the theme park's horror fest yet again. This year's theme -- The 13 -- is about the 13 oogedy boogedy people who wait until the 13th year to come out, just waiting to scare the bejesus out of you. From the photos and video of the Bucs cheerleaders, it looks like they do their job well.

Of course, this is actually the 14th year of Howl-O-Scream, which began in 2000. 14 is a scary number for Tampa Bay Bucs fans, who may recall the 0-14 season they endured in 1976.

The Bucs are 0-5 so far this season. Hope it's not an unlucky premonition of games to come.

There's still six more chances to meet the Howl-O-Scream 13, Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 17-19 and Oct. 24-26.
