I think, therefore I am, I think

I think Tampa's a great place to live when you need to write a column about the place where you live.
I think my buddy Jon would say Chicago's 10 times more interesting.
But I think I can write far more about Tampa than Chicago.
I think that's because I've never been to Chicago.
I think the Police's Outlandos d'Amour is awesome from start to finish.
But I think there are lots of great albums on the Hub jukebox.
So I think whoever keeps playing Outlandos d'Amour from start to finish should give it a rest.
I think someone should give me a heads-up if the person turns out to be a Navy SEAL.
I think in that case, I can't get enough Outlandos d'Amour.
I think it's nice that bar owner Rick Calderoni wants the Retreat to cater more to professionals than kids across the street at UT.
But I think I counted about 35 Spartans singing along to Living on a Prayer there late Sunday night.
I think I counted just one patron too old to be a student, and he was the one doing the counting.
So I think Calderoni's got his work cut out.
I think my editor must think I do nothing but go to bars.
I think I should apologize to Sports Illustrated's Peter King for somewhat ripping off his "Five things I think I think" shtick.
But I think he's got better things to do than talk to me.
So I think he can just read it on Google.
I think I'm lucky to have met Tony Dungy before he was booted out of town.
I think it's amazing that Dungy still speaks well of Bucs owner Malcolm Glazer.
I think I'd be holding a grudge.
I think Dungy prefers holding the Lombardi Trophy.
I think "Publix" is not a real word.
I think if it was, its plural would be "Publices," as in "Does South Tampa really need three Publices just a couple of miles from each other?" I think "Sweetbay" would be a better name for a town than a grocery.
But I don't think anyone would respect the Sweet Bay Packers.
I think someone's going to send an e-mail pointing out that you can't actually read things "on" Google.
I think I wish I had that kind of free time.
I think the aloe shakes at Cephas' Hot Shop in Ybor City might, as promised, help one lose weight.
I think the one aloe shake I drank immediately made me want to cough up everything I ate that day.
I don't think that's the way it's supposed to work.
But if it is, I think that's going to be tricky to market.
I think that's all I can think of.
We think Rick Gershman can be reached at email@example.com or 226-3431.
