Place A Wager At Derby Lane

Race to Derby Lane, St. Petersburg, FL

Derby Lane, St. Petersburg

It sits there silently as you drive past, on the edge of Tampa Bay. Except for a few fishing shacks, it was the first developed property on Gandy Boulevard, carved out of pines and palmettos, an outpost at the edge of St. Petersburg’s city limits. Derby Lane, Florida’s top greyhound racing facility, has been there since 1925. Continue reading

The Best Tampa Bay Tattoo Ever

This is without a doubt, the most dedicated Tampa Bays fan ever. Passed by this lady at a Walgreens and saw this tattoo out of the corner of my eye. I had to turn around stop her and asked her if I could take a look at it. Then I asked her if I could take a picture. It features (from the top down) the sun and the moon over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the Tampa Bay Rays logo (from the Devil Rays days), a baseball, the Tampa Bay Bucs logo, the Tampa Bay Lightning logo (with a goalie mask), and the inscription “Believe” with the “B” made from a heart. On the other side of her arm in letters large enough to take up that whole side was “Tampa Bay” in beautiful cursive writing. This is OUR kind of gal. We salute you!
