The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who could use some goodwill with their fan base, are going for it.
The team just announced it will hold its first-ever evening Fan Fest at Raymond James Stadium. The event will be held June 19 and will run from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. There will be autograph and photo sessions with current and former players, coaches and cheerleaders. Fans also will get to view the Lombardi trophy -- this is not a joke. The Bucs still have that one they won all those years ago.
Of course, the team that’s facing the possibility of local television blackouts this season will be pushing season-ticket deals, with fans allowed to choose their own seats.
