Super Bowl 55: Could BUCCANEERS be first team to play in SUPER BOWL in its own stadium?
If you ask any of us @ BuccaneersFan.com our answer is NOT a soft spoken Yes... it's HELL YES!
It's extreamly unusual for one franchise to host a Super Bowl in back-to-back seasons. Super Bowl LIV was of course played Sunday night from Miami, and Super Bowl LV will be played only 280 miles northeast of Miami right here in Tampa Bay. Raymond James Stadium was not originally scheduled to host this years game, but in May 2017 NFL owners voted to move Super Bowl LV from Los Angeles to Tampa Bay due to potential constructions delays of the new Rams stadium in L.A.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans are feeling pretty good about our team as they begin knocking on the door of the 2020 regular season next week. The BUCS entered training camp the envy of most other NFL clubs after an offseason that landed us six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and future Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski. Specifically, with Brady, that signing immediately started the Super Bowl conversations and, raising the bar extremely high for 2020. Now it's time to see if all those big swings over the course of the offseason will actually result in on-field victorys
What is especially exciting is Tampa Bay will be the host city for Super Bowl LV this February. No team has ever won a Super Bowl in its home stadium and We predict the Buccaneers to be the first, giving Tampa its second trophy and Brady his seventh career ring and the first outside of New England.
CONGRATULATIONS - Keith Kunzig 'Big Nasty'
You've likely seen Kunzig in full-face paint and a larger than life getup, including a Super Bowl trophy belt, walking around Raymond James Stadium or in the tailgate lots at any given Bucs home game. He not only puts on the persona in support of the Buccaneers, but also uses his notoriety for good around the community. He created the national "Drugs Are Nasty" program and hosts a "Nasty for a Day" tailgate experience at each home game as a means of raising money in the fight against drug abuse..
"I can't explain the joy I get from being able to use the 'Big Nasty' persona as a platform to do good in our community," said Kunzig.
BuccaneersFan.com has always known that Keith was one of the best super-fans, not just in Tampa Bay, but in the entire NFL. Now, he's getting the national recognition he deserves.
Kunzig, "Big Nasty," will be named into the Ford "Hall of Fans," as one of the NFL's best at cheering on his team:!

Best Quote of the Pre-Season
“Apparently Brady’s wife super model Gisele Bundchen has let her husband know she would prefer somewhere with a warm climate.
“When I look at a possible landing for Tom, and it is kind of crazy I’m not talking about Tom Brady being the Patriots quarterback for the rest of his life, I look at teams like the Tampa Bay Bucs or maybe the LA Chargers,” said former-Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss, now ESPN NFL commentator. “Between the two of them I like the wide receiver corps of Tampa Bay.
“Tom Brady has always wanted a weapon to have, he Gronk (Rob Gronkowski), he had myself, he Julian Edelman and I think Tampa Bay would be a good fit.”
Bucs' 2019 Ring of Honor inductee
"Rondé Barber personified greatness on and off the field during his 16 seasons as a Buccaneer," said Owner/Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer. "His achievements are as impressive as they are long, but Rondé’s most defining qualities were his ultra-competitive nature, his passion for this game, and his love of the Tampa Bay community."

No Bucs fans allowed at first two home games in Raymond James!
Citing health concerns during the coronavirus pandemic, the team focuses on limited seating for the first month, possibly having fans by Week 6.
Tom Brady’s first two games at Raymond James Stadium quarterbacking the Bucs will be played in front of 65,890 empty seats.
Citing concern for the health and safety of players, fans, staff and the community, the Bucs informed season pass members Wednesday that it’s too soon to play an NFL game in Tampa Bay with fans in attendance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
No fans will be permitted until October at the earliest, wiping out the possibility of seeing Brady and the Bucs in person for the home opener against the Carolina Panthers (Sept. 20) and vs. the Los Angeles Chargers (Oct. 4)
If coronavirus cases in Tampa Bay continue to decline, the Bucs say they are focused on welcoming some fans back to the stadium when they host the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers Week 6 (Oct. 18).
