Bucs announce evening Fan Fest

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.
