Tampa Bay is an incredible city to be a athletic interests fan.
- The fans like our hometown teams, & the athletes like us right back, then i have met multiple members of the Rays at public appearances, & they are consistently so gracious & friendly.
All of us have a narrow craft community in this city, & a single of the things that binds us together is athletic interests. This is something that has rubbed off on me, because when I first moved here multiple years ago I didn’t love athletic interests at all, & now I consider myself a fanatic. I remember being so miserable when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays shortened their name & became the Raysâ€¦ Sadly, the influence of right-wing religious types is widespread in the section surrounding Tampa Bay, & they fought against the word “devil.” The team name may have changed, but I still wear our classic Tampa Bay Devil Rays jersey when I go to the games. If I am being honest, I don’t go to multiple games these afternoons. I enjoy to watch the Tampa Bay team play from the comfort of our kitchen & our cooling system. It gets honestly tepid resting in the stands of the arena, & our blood pressure is terrible, so having climate control makes it easier for myself and others to prefer the gameâ€¦ With our sizable screen television & our ice-frigid AC, I get the best possible experience watching the Tampa Bay Rays. I am also a long-time fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team, & of course the Bucs will consistently be our favorite.
