The new family moved in this week. They arrived in south Tampa with the kids and video games in tow, and the fate of a city waiting at the doorstep.

Perhaps that sounds like hyperbole. With any luck, it is not. For if Tampa decides to align its fortunes with Jeff Vinik, it may be the type of boon a venturous city needs.

The idea is to create a destination point that links the Times Forum, the waterfront and the rest of downtown in a way that has never previously taken off.

Naturally, this has led to scuttlebutt that Vinik, who is a limited partner with the Red Sox and owns two World Series rings, might also be envisioning a baseball stadium.

"In terms of sports, my singular focus is the Lightning,'' Vinik said. "I read what's going on with the Rays, but who knows where that will go?''
It's not no!

Well, hard to argue with him there. At this point, throwing **** at the wall and seeing what sticks might be the best plan for the Rays.

No exact date, but they plan to have it up and installed by September 23rd. I guess they'll start once the RNC is out of town and the forum gets put back together.

I'm really curious how this one will look when it's installed

btw : every time I write "curious" I am wondering if this is the correct word which I use.
Because "curious" sounds like "kurios" in German which means something other than "to be interested to see something".
Doese someone have a better use here for me ?

Such a waste of money. Could have given raises to the employees and not fired a whole bunch like they did. But hey, what do they matter?

The Lightning rank #81 in ESPN's UniWatch Power Rankings ranking all the 122 uniform sets in the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL:

Quote:
Once you get all the Shazam and Grateful Dead jokes out of the way, it's not such a bad uniform. The wordmark on the road jersey is a mistake, though, and there's no need for those shoulder patches when you already have lightning bolts on the chest and pants. The bigger problem, though, is that awful alternate design. Eliminate that and you'll have the very definition of addition by subtraction.

I don't care what they wear as long as they win, but that 3rd jersey always looks to me like the runner up design from an AFL 'design your team jersey' competition

Youre off base here man. No correlation between the two.

I agree with everything they said except the shoulder patches. I hate the TB word mark on the aways. And Im ok with the thirds but we can do much better, and I believe we will.

I don't know if Vinik knew what he said at the end with "Why not us?" after talking about winning the Cup in 2004.

What does everyone think about the letter that just came out saying we will get a card instead of STH tickets.

Also, different pricing depending on the opposition.

I saw an article about that for the CBJ, but I didn't know that Tampa Bay was doing it also.

iirc, CBJ is doing it so you are able to still print tickets for specific games if you are so inclined. Is Tampa doing this also?

Yes, you can print them, forward, exchange for other games of same cost, and donate them all from the your web account.

Yes you are. The main reason it is being replaced is because nobody can/will work on it. The original company went under, and they're really running into issues with pixelation that you'll see during games at times - 2-3 blocks that are darker or completely black. The guys are stuck, and its only a matter of time before the board fails, and god forbid it happens during a game.... what a mess.

Yes, pretty much all teams use the same ticketing system from ticketmaster so they'll have the same options.
