St. Petersburg, Florida - When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Cleveland Browns Sunday afternoon, no one within a 75-mile radius of Tampa Bay will be able to watch the game on television.

But a Clearwater company is shuttling Bucs fans to Ft. Myers to watch the game at a sports bar.

For $25 each, fans can board a 29-passenger minibus and be driven to Lee Roy Selmon's Restaurant in Ft. Myers.  The price includes a plate of hot wings and draft beer or other drink.

Passengers can also bring their own coolers and beers onto the minibus.

The event's organized by JoeBucsFans.com and Paradise Worldwide Transportation, which is based in Clearwater.  Fans must register and pay online before Sunday.

The bus will leave Derby Lanes in St. Petersburg at 10:20 a.m. and return around 6 p.m.

"This will be an opportunity for people to have the best of both worlds," said Steve Isbitts with JoeBucsFan.com, which has 200,000 readers a month. 

"It's a living room sports bar experience without going to the game."

Isbitts added that most of his readers are not happy that the game is blacked out.

"It just stinks [because] most fans watch the games on television," Isbitts said.

Fans in Tampa Bay can also listen to the game on the radio through the Buccaneers Radio Network on 620 WDAE AM and 103.5 WFUS FM.  The game will also be broadcast on Sirius 158 and XM 106.
