    Riding in $tyle

    Go ahead, picture yourself driving to the big game behind the wheel of a yellow 2001 Lamborghini Diablo. It could be yours for $4,300 a day.

    If that's too steep, a BMW Z3 can be had for a mere $129 a day. But only two of those were available midday Thursday.

    The cars are being rented by Exotic Cars of Miami, which has set up a temporary shop at the corner of N Dale Mabry Highway and Waters Avenue. But they're only here for the big game. The Jaguars, Porsches, limos and Mercedes -- a total of 30 -- will head back to Miami on Tuesday.

    "Whatever cities the Super Bowl are played in, we've analyzed it and we know people have money," said Vivian Padron, office manager. "Not only that, but the players and their families are used to driving nice cars at home and they want them here as well." -- TIM GRANT

    Bush won't be here

    President Bush is one of the few people in the country who could get a Super Bowl ticket without difficulty, but he isn't coming. White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Friday that Bush had no plans to travel to the Tampa Bay area to see the game. "I think he is going to have a quiet Super Bowl at home with his wife,'' Fleischer said.

    Ravens by a nose

    The dolphins are picking the Ravens, only this one isn't from Miami. Sunset Sam, a bottlenose dolphin from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, grabbed the Baltimore ball almost immediately Thursday after trainers tossed Ravens and Giants footballs into the water. A permanent resident due to a liver disorder and visual impairment, Sam is 91/2 feet long and weighs 500 pounds. Anybody looking for linemen?
