    The Bright Lights of Raymond James Stadium

    by tafurojo Written Dec 27, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tampa is home of the 2003 World Champion Buccaneers (NFL). They defeated the Oakland Raiders in the Superbowl on January 26th 2003. You can experience a game at Raymond James stadium if you are in the area sometime between early September and the end of the year. If you get a chance to see a late afternoon or night game it is worth your while.

    Tampa Bay Bucs at Raymond James Stadium

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Nov 4, 2010

    Raymond James Stadium was completed in 1998 and is home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, University of South Florida Bulls, and the New Year’s Day Outback Bowl. It is located north of downtown just across the street from Yankee's Legends Field. The stadium was built at a cost of $170 million and it seats 66,000.

    I attended the Bucs game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010. This was almost a home game for the Steelers with a huge crowd in Black and Gold, waving Terrible Towels. The Steelers manhandled the Bucs, winning 38-13, while rushing for over 200 yards. Charlie Batch looked like a Hall of Famer in this game, throwing for three touchdowns in his first start in three years.

    After the game we happened upon the area where the Steelers walk out to their buses, and we got to see Charlie Batch, Troy Polamalu, Chris Kemoeatu, Mike Wallace and others.
