    I don’t currently live in the state of Florida, and I have never been to a practice before, so forgive me if this is a stupid question. Are the open practices free to the public?

    1. 1.1


      As always, parking will be free of charge and no tickets will be required to visit the open practices. And there are no stupid questions! After 45 years of marriage, my dear wife still asks after a day of golf or whatever “are you home already”? To which I still appropriately say “no I’m still in the driveway”. Lol. Hope you get to see a few practices when you come for a visit. Go Bucs!

      Thanks macabee. Your oldsters version helped a lot. I’ll be at as many as I can.

      1. 2.1.1


        I love training camp and I always try to make it to as many practices as I can, usually opening weekend. I should be able to make it the first Friday and Saturday of opening weekend. I hope to see you there Scubog along with what should be a rowdy crowd with Hard Knocks in attendance.



          Looking forward to seeing you Pink. Lots to discuss. Not sure about the first Friday, but for sure Saturday and Sunday.
