RON AND SHERRY SACINO
WHO THEY ARE: He's CEO of Sacino's Formal Wear. She's the author of Keeping the Dream Alive: Growing Up to be a Buccaneer and Spiritual Touchdowns: Inspirational Profiles from the NFL. They live in St. Pete Beach.
HOW THEY GOT TICKETS: Bought them from a friend of Sherry's who coordinates an NFL golf tournament.
THEIR STORY: Ron is a football fan, but Sherry is more passionate. "In our household, I'm actually the football widower," Ron said, joking. "To be a fan for so long and to have them come such a long way, we're absolutely thrilled."
... who's not
WHO HE IS: Pinellas County commissioner.
HIS STORY: A former St. Petersburg City Council member who pushed to bring baseball to town and a longtime Bucs season-ticket holder, he hoped to get tickets through the lottery. He thought about buying tickets, but prices were sky-high and it was difficult to work the trip into his schedule. In the meantime, he was scouring stores for Buccaneers NFC champion caps so he could mail them to two sons in Colorado before the game.
