Hello from Tampa, F-L-A! Having a great time and the weather is beautiful. This town brings back a ton of memories for me. This is where I started my baseball career.
|Can you say... cheese? Rob Dibble, left, and Dan Patrick are broadcasting live from Tampa throughout Super Bowl week.|
My first five spring trainings, including my first major league spring training, were in Tampa. I played for the Tampa Tarpons right at Al Lopez Field -- which was right where Raymond James Stadium now stands.
Tampa has a lot going on: a beautiful waterfront, Ybor City and Clearwater and St. Pete are only a half hour away. It's just a gorgeous part of Florida -- every bit as beautiful as the east coast of Florida, if you ask me.
We're going out tonight to check out some stuff around town -- I'll try to remember as many details as I can! I've already seen a bunch of cool cats in town for the big game.
Lesley Visser -- who is more beautiful in person than she is on television -- was on our radio show today. As was the very cool Jack Youngblood -- if Clint Eastwood had played football, he would have played like Jack Youngblood. Our old friends Sterling Sharpe, Joe Theismann and Chris Berman also stopped by. Overall, it was a great first day of Super Bowl week. I wish everyone could be here!
Oh yeah, you can. Well, sort of. Check out our live Web cam all week from 1-4 p.m. ET.
