The Tampa Bay Buccaneers inducted former head coach Jon Gruden into their Ring of Honor at half-time today, and Gurden had a nice speech prepared in which he mostly paid tribute to his 2002 Super Bowl-winning team. A tribute that, amazingly, included a re-enactment of the team’s first touchdown in that game.

The Bucs would win that game 48-21 thanks to arguably the most dominant defensive performance ever shown in a Super Bowl. But that first touchdown really set the tone, and Gruden is an offensive coaching so him highlighting that play makes a lot of sense.

It was a really nice moment, so it was really frustrating that ESPN failed to capture it. They had most of Gruden’s speech, and right as he went into this re-enactment, they cut in with some promo material. Just a terrible way to ruin what looked like a really cool moment for the home fans.

Thankfully, the Bucs’ video crew captured it and they, at least, managed to show it properly. So enjoy!
