The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hosting the Green Bay Packers in their throwback game today. Raymond James Stadium is decorated for the occassion, with the old orange and white colors and Bucco Bruce logo all over the field and stadium.
Pewter Report just arrived in the press box at Raymond James Stadium for Sunday's Bucs vs. Packers game.

Everyone knows by now that today's game is a throwback contest for the Bucs. If someone didn't know that heading into the game, they'll certainly know it with one quick glance around the stadium.

The Bucs, who haven't worn their orange and white colors since switching to red and pewter in 1997, have gone all out for the throwback contest, which is dedicated to the 1979 Bucs that that made an appearance in the NFC Championship Game that year.

Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon will be inducted into Tampa Bay's Ring of Honor at halftime.

The old Bucco Bruce helmet logo is painted at midfield, and both end zones read Tampa Bay in orange and white.

Tampa Bay is sporting white helmets, white pants and orange jerseys, and the team's cheerleaders will be in orange and white today as well.

In addition, replacing Captain Fear for Sunday's game is a Bucco Bruce mascot.

Orange Bucco Bruce flags are outlining the stadium along with banners, and the four tunnels in the corners of the stadium are white and have Bucco Bruce logos on them.

The Bucs and Packers kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET at Raymond James Stadium.
