Bucs Pushing Hard For Opening Day SelloutJune 27th, 2012
In a move clearly designed to start the New Schiano Order on the right foot and end the community stain of TV blackouts of home Bucs games, Team Glazer has announced it is selling home-opener tickets early — starting Friday — plus opening-day concessions will be half price and some free parking will be available for that game.
One can only hope this means Joe’s Blackout Tour will not have to resurrect for its third season.
Fans attending the game will be treated to a commemorative Ronde Barber gym sack, while also receiving 50% off all concessions (excluding alcohol) in both General and Club levels, and being offered free parking in select lots.
“As we usher in a new Buccaneer era that kicks off in September, we are looking forward to celebrating Ronde Barber’s 200th straight start,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer. “Ronde has made us all proud during his 15 seasons with the team, and this next milestone is yet another along the road that we expect will lead to Canton. Our fans have a lot to look forward to this season, and we hope this promotion helps give everyone the chance to both celebrate a Bucs great and join the fight.”
While Joe would hardly wager on the game selling out, one can legitmately hope that this move, plus premier free agents in house, plus a new regime, plus Cam Newton in the building will get the job done.
