Cover Story
Avast ye partiers! It’s Gasparilla Saturday and Super Bowl Sunday.   Going out to watch the big game?
The Super Bowl may not be in our back yard this year, but local sports bars and restaurants are still likely to be packed with hard-core fans and those who catch just this one game each year.

Yo, ho, ho! Invading they will go
A tough band of ruthless pirates will lay siege to Tampa on Saturday. After a brief but spirited defense, the city is expected to surrender and get on with the fun of capture.
