Report from the Tampa Bay area

As you come down the escalator toward baggage claim at Tampa International Airport, there are these big LCD screens that list all the current incoming flights and their assigned baggage carousels. But there’s a panel in the middle that the airport uses to welcome whatever convention, group, or Mafia den is coming to town. Friday afternoon, it read “LIGHTNING VS. PHILADELPHIA FLYERS, SAT. & MON./Devil Rays vs. Texas Rangers, Tues., Wed. Thurs.” Nice to know not everyone has hockey fever; however, I have a feeling that very few of the people coming into the airport on Friday afternoon are going to be at any one of those Devil Rays games. But I will.
