Re: Observations from Tampa & Raymond James Stadium

I gotta ask, what hotel did you stay at? I'm curious to see what kind of accommodations the guys get on the road.

Is this normal for NFL players, even for the "poor" six-figure incomes? Seems like a good night's sleep would be important...

edit: If a joke flew over my head, alright.

Well, I figured if Carlos Rogers was actually in debt living in Jason Campbell's basement WHILE PLAYING for the Skins, and other eccentricities of player's lifestyles, then sleeping on the bus was possible....



OK shutting up now. lol

Great story! I was pretty calm for most the game, but I was basically yelling at my screen in the 4th Q! ahaha

pretty sure the team pays travel expenses, even if not, they should be tax deductible.

Re: Observations from Tampa & Raymond James Stadium

It was a Marriott. Very nice hotel (on their higher end) but as someone who travels for a living it wasn't 5 star or anything. Last time I was in Tampa (earlier this year) I stayed at the Intercontinental which was a nicer property but further away from the stadium.

Most pro teams stay at a Westin, Marriott or Hyatt level hotels on the road.

That is really funny.
Sounds like an incredible time - especially with the win. Awesome. I would love to see that video maybe you already posted it but I havent made it through this first post yet.

There were also 2 weddings going on so the lobby was jammed with people so if I didn't know those players we probably wouldn't have even known they were staying there.

Lots of fanboys in the lobby though getting autographs and pictures. A couple of ladies were lingering about as well. My wife asked 'are those players wives or girlfriends?' I said, 'Uh no babe, those are groupies.' Gave me a chance to peek though, lol.
Darn it. I was at the Town Plaza Marriot next door and they weren't there. Looks like I picked the crappy marriot. But in my defense, I was hammered. It was a great weekend though.
