Several days ago, I drove by the hot spots (downtown, Channelside, and Ybor City) of Tampa. The city has been in a frenzy trying to get things situated for the big day - Super Bowl Sunday. I learned that my favorite band, the Eagles, was playing at the St Pete Times Forum Thursday night, and Celine Dion played the night before. Wow, lots of celebrities in town, and definitely lots happening ...
Although I am no avid sports fan, I do like to watch the Super Bowl on TV. It is the height of creativity for the advertisers. The half-time show can be quite exciting. How could anyone forget Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction in 2004? This year, Bruce Springsteen, aka the Boss, promises a high energy 12-minute party at the half-time show. My observation is that most of the Tampa Bay area will be rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Me? I prefer the underdog, the Arizona Cardinals, a team who is playing in the Super Bowl for the first time. But hey, what do I know? Prior to an invitation to a Super Bowl party this week, I didn't even know who was playing:-) Go Cardinals!
Enjoy your stay in the Tampa Bay area!
