TAMPA, Fla. -- There have been a whole bunch of parties during Super Bowl week. In general, they're for corporate hobnobbing and fun and that's great.

But I saw one story on the television news this morning about a party that went beyond the usual. There was a party in Tampa last night to start a memorial fund for Matthew Tryson Bryant, the infant son of Buccaneers kicker Matt Bryant. Matthew Tryson died suddenly in September.

Matt and his wife Melissa are starting the memorial fund and the party was a way to get started. According to the television report the guest list included Kevin Costner, Cuba Gooding Jr. and many of the Buccaneers.
