Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fans And The Cost Of Not Buying Tickets

Friday's preseason game at Raymond James Stadium between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans has been blacked out in the Tampa. This means that any Bucs fans within a 75-mile radius of the Tampa Bay area can't watch the game live on TV.

Sucks, right? Sure it does. But don't worry, that's why you have us here to hold you down.

More after the jump...

You obviously missed it when your blacked out television set failed to show you Buccaneers safety Ahmad Black picking off Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker early in the first quarter.

It wasn't a scoring turnover, but nevertheless, it was a highlight.

A highlight that you didn't see because you, or perhaps someone you know, failed to buy tickets and show up to Friday night's game and help contribute to the required 85-percent stadium capacity marker that is necessary for the NFL to air the game on live television.

So having to watch this highlight via gif is your fault. Shame on you...
