The Buccaneers will be playing in front of a packed house this weekend, but there are still countless of other Tampa Bay fans who won’t be at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday. However, those who can’t attend the Buccaneers-Eagles game on December 9 but would like to watch the halftime ceremony honoring the reunited Super Bowl Championship team of 2002 are in luck.
Buccaneers.com will carry a live video stream of Sunday’s halftime, complete with player introductions and a featured speaker. The game will be broadcast in the Bay area by FOX, but the network will obviously be providing other content, such as league-wide game updates, during halftime.
More than 50 players and coaches from the team that beat Oakland 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII will gather this weekend to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the team’s first NFL championship. The Super Bowl alumni will first meet for a private event at team headquarters on Saturday night, then will get a chance to step on the Raymond James Stadium turf in front of the fans one more time on Sunday afternoon. Kickoff for the Bucs-Eagles game is at 1:00 p.m. ET; halftime is likely to arrive at approximately 2:30.
Among those returning for the reunion are Head Coach Jon Gruden, Defensive Coordinator Monte Kiffin, LB Derrick Brooks, S John Lynch, DT Warren Sapp, QB Brad Johnson, FB Mike Alstott and WR Keyshawn Johnson. Of the 22 players who started in Super Bowl XXXVII, 19 are expected to be on hand, plus such fan favorites as WR Joe Jurevicius and dozens of others.
