Just a little Super Bowl cutie from the sketchbook today. The Super Bowl is right across the bay from us and we have been experiencing some of the crowds and excitement. It's kinda funny to see local places hosting national TV shows.
On Wednesday, my wife let me know that someone at her office had a pair of tickets to the game. They cost $5700 for the pair. She was letting me know in case I knew anyone who wanted to buy a couple of tickets. It was in section 143, row M 13 & 14. If you click on this link for Raymond James Stadium and click on section 143, you can see a photo of the view. Sorry for not mentioning it sooner for those here that might have been interested. ;)
Today the paper stated that private jet reservations are down. Over at Tampa International they have closed a secondary runway to use as a parking lot for the 300+ private jets there. That number is down from the 430 here for the 2001 Super Bowl. St. Pete/Clearwater has over 200. Down by 50. Tampa Executive has 40-50 parked there. So including the other surrounding airports, there are about 750 private jets here. Down more than 1,250 from 2001. I guess the economic woes are hitting the jet setters too.
