Buccaneers Cheerleaders Act as Security Against Titans
by Alicia de Artola
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders weren’t about to let the Tennessee Titans disrespect their midfield logo. So they formed a line across it.
If the Tennessee Titans thought they’d be able to gather at the Buccaneers midfield logo at Raymond James Stadium, they were sorely mistaken.
Tampa Bay’s cheerleaders formed a line across the logo to stop any shenanigans from happening.
