    Lol I forgot for tampa we have "The worlds second safest beach :) " and lightning capitol of the world. See what happens is Tampa is a bay on the gulf. In season all the sharks, mainly Bull Sharks come into the bay and use it as a nursery. We usually have someone eaten once a year. Well not eaten just chewed up a bit. But from a 15 foot bull shark your not going to survive a bite. For those unaware the Bull shark is the most dangerous and agressive animal on the planet. It also boost's the highest level of testosterone of any animal on the planet.

    Nah, he probably just extracts it from the shark and mixes it with the standard roids he gives out. Whats even more funny is Steinbrenner lives 2 miles away from me. My best friend in highschool actually got rear ended by his daughter and wife when she had he learners permit. Needless to say they all got new cars the next week. For those who don't know Steinbrenner lives in Tampa and works in NY. He flys back and forth every week. Thats why we have the yankee's here for spring training. He also has a couple racing horse stables down here. I've seen him at Tampa Downs a couple times. He wasn't a very nice guy. Although he was walking around with the normal folk if you said Hey George he'd just ignore you.

    I remember that from last year. Tell me if this rings a bell. "SUPERBOWL HOUSE FOR RENT $1200 a day." Here's an interesting tid bit you guys might not know. I used to work for a gentlemans club back 9 years ago when we had another super bowl. The NFL puts out a letter to both teams and staff of acceptable strip clubs they can goto and ones they can not. Luckly ours and the Doll House were the only two NFL approved clubs in Tampa. It's also really cool seeing all the athletes hanging out. Amazingly the biggest high rollers were the coaching staff of the Greenbay Packers. They would all come the day before the big game and drop about 10g.

    Lessee...
    I live in Amityville, so there's 112 Ocean Ave about 1/2 mile away.
    There's also a Heritage Fair in early June, with a tour given by the Historical Society, telling of how famous A'ville was: Will Rogers visited Fred Stone's place, and Annie Oakley had a house there. Sperry tested his missiles down on the beach, also.
