Bucs, Fans Will Celebrate “Win on the Water”

February 10th, 2021

Just as sports anchor Kevin O’Donnell of WTVT-TV Channel 13 predicted, real recognizes real.

Parades cannot be real parades in a pandemic. But the Tampa Bay area has something many cities do not: plenty of waterways away from people. So just as the Tampa Bay Lightning did when they won the Stanley Cup last summer, the Bucs will take to the water to celebrate winning the franchise’s second Super Bowl.

The parade will take place along the Tampa Riverwalk tomorrow beginning at 1 p.m. The route will be between Armature Works winding around Harbor Island and Sparkman Wharf. Boaters may be in the water but must remain 50 feet from the parade vessels. Joe assumes that means jet-skis, too. Boats cannot join in the parade.

Take care of yourself out there. Officials warn the mask police will be in full force. Mask up!

And have some freakin’ fun! Make your friends really jealous up north as they brave frigid temperatures in a polar vortex while Bucs fans enjoy a boat parade in sunny, summer-like conditions.

    Sucks most of us are working at 1 and we find out the day before so makes it hard to prearrange the day off. Oh well. Go Bucs! Have fun!

  3. Delawest Says:

    I wish I can watch the whole parade, anyway I can watch it from Cali?

  4. Lamarcus Says:

    I’m in Vegas. Will it be on TV?

  5. Coburn Says:

    Yup I’m jealous. Would love to be there, but with windchill it’s -40 or lower here in Alberta right now. Should warm up a bit in a few days

  6. Coburn Says:

    Side benefit of mask is it helps keep your face a bit warmer

  7. Cannon Says:

    I have an office in the SYKES building… haven’t been there in over a year… I wonder how chaotic it will be? (Thinking about going in)

  8. Delawest Says:

    Go bucs

    Snook πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

    really sucks for those of us with jobs (to pay for our season passes) and have kids in school. no chance to attend. disappointing to say the least. Mayor Mask-up did this intentionally to keep people away

  11. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    What a joke, that the Tampa mayor is politicizing this celebration, that bucs fans and the franchise has been waiting 18 years for a day like this. Typical for people like her to underestimate the power of sports and the deep passion that many bucs fans have and want to show the appreciation for the bucs and be around other bucs fans. She has no clue how deep bucs passion runs and the rock bottom this team came from to get to the top. GO BUCS and thanks mayor.

    You got your photographer out there today?
    Pics and videos pretty please πŸ˜‚ as im here in orlando and good chance we dont get on news. Maybe nfl network will have some footage

  13. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Wow I will definitely be working BUT maybe my boss will want to be the best boss ever today and let me leave early!! I agree though the mayor could’ve thought of us working folks who are due for this celebration being a die hard fan.

  14. Hawk Says:

    A lot of players and coaches do not live in Tampa. They want to go home to celebrate with family/friends. If the mayor waited too long, they would probably only need an inner tube for the parade.

  15. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Hawk, no disrespect but what you talking about? These dudes live in the Tampa area and have leases on condos or houses that they will still have here in this area in the near future; they are also pretty rich and can catch a plane ride back to their hometown next week if they desire; this is all about the mayor plain and simple and how she will be perceived in the national media. Make a parade (that you should have planned 2 weeks ago) at the last minute and then give the time at 8pm on day before the parade; its a joke

  16. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    From what i was hearing is that it was planned for Friday but most players already having had their Aquarium party into the we ours didn’t want to wait till Friday because they wanted to start their vacation sooner so they agreed on today with short notice. Sucks for the Fans who want that time to celebrate with our team and show our appreciation and totally agree with Duthsty Rhothdes about the Mayor and decision, but having said that it’s a different world we live in now.

  17. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    evolving bucs fan right on; its tough out here….hope that Thursday night opening NFL night against the Bills will be back to Normal and we can get to celebrate the team, fans and franchise and get RJS rocking as a giant party; the bills fans get loose too that could be a wild night come next September. The NFL might be a little nervous to start the 2021 season off with that party

  18. Bucs Fan Since β€˜76 Says:

    I will be there on a boat taking pics and vids. If Joe or anyone else wants copies of what I take let me know!

  19. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Bucs fan 76 MEEEE!!!

  20. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    That would be awesome Bucs 76! Maybe Joe can work with you and show on this site. Thanks!

  21. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Parades have generally all been right away and in the middle of the day no matter what team.. not surprising.

    I believe Buccaneers.com will have a stream.

  22. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Well well well my boss woke up generous this morning and is letting me off early to enjoy the festivities!! #Ihavethebestbossever
    @bucs fan 76 I still would like those pics if you are still willing to share. You might get some better shots than me depending on where I will end up.

  23. TOM Says:

    Why couldn’t they had an evening parade?

  24. Bucs Fan Since β€˜76 Says:

    We had a photographer on the boat with us. Should get the shots in a day or so then will let everyone know. We had a blast!
