Here’s a glimpse at the Super Bowl LV Experience at Julian B. Lane Park in Tampa last weekend. This is the only public event the Complimentary Spouse and I have visited since the pandemic began. Everyone mostly appeared to be following the rules, although people were closer together than they should have been and, of course, there were a few attendees who haven’t yet figured out that masks are supposed to cover your nose. When we were in line to see the Lombardi Trophy, I had to remind the couple behind us to stay a few feet back. They seemed a bit perturbed but did so anyway. We didn’t stay long and didn’t visit any attractions that were partially indoors.
A few observations:
- The cheapest T-shirts were $50. I didn’t buy one.
- There were a ton of religious nuts with loudspeakers outside.1
- There were lots of red caps there. Thankfully, they were Buccanneers and Chiefs caps, not Hooray for Domestic Terrorism caps.
- Britt and I wore T-shirts and shorts. How wonderful it is to be a Tampeńo in February!
