Hey, I'm in St. Petersburg, where's the World Series?
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Either I’m going deaf, blind or senile – maybe all three - but for the life of me I can’t find any evidence the World Series is being played here.
Granted, I’m playing golf during the day, but I’m also doing a lot of driving around town, including around Tropicana Park, and I see and hear – almost nothing.
A few small signs on businesses, a couple of people overheard talking about the game. That’s about it. If you didn’t pick up the local papers, you might never know the Tampa Bay Rays were playing a historic World Series with the Phillies.
Where are the raucous fans? Where are the huge banners? Where are the wild gatherings?
People make sport of St. Pete for being God’s Waiting Room, meaning they think it’s just a bunch of old people waiting to die.
That’s not totally accurate. I lived here for five years and had some pretty wild times here. There are a lot of young people here.
Maybe they’re just not baseball fans.

I cut a swath through this town, and I think we all know what I'm talking about.
