Baseball Fans in Tampa for the Superbowl

RAYS One Pager.jpg

Kevin Costner is a popular guy around Tampa Bay. He’s a regular at the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am in Lutz, and last fall, his band, Modern West, composed a rah-rah jingle for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Now he’s plotting his own Super Bowl party in Tampa.

Costner and Michael Strahan will host this year’s Saturday Night Spectacular at 8 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Pepin Hospitality Centre. The event will feature a performance by the avant-garde circus Circue USA; Starship Supergroup, a classic-rock supergroup composed of members of Jefferson Starship, Toto, Survivor and the Dazz Band; and, yes, Costner and Modern West ( in case you just can’t get enough of It’s All Up To You ).

The charity listed as a beneficiary of the event is named for Matthew Tryson Bryant, Bucs kicker Matt Bryant’s 3-month-old son who died suddenly in September. (The charity is still in the works.)

I wish I was there for the event! Have a wonderful time!


I wish I could go, I have to attend the NFLPA party in Ybor City that night. I have attended the last 2 when the Superbowl has been in Tampa.

But I have seen Kevin Costner and Modern West perform 2 times, and I like the way he sings and his band is fantastic.

You are one busy guy, renegade. Sounds like a fun event, but I’m sure the party you’re going to will be fun too. Talk about a full dance card!

The funny thing about this area is that we have a lot of former players living here. Not just ex-Bucs players, but Jerome Bettis grew up here, and Deion Sanders makes one of his home down in Fort Meyers.

I actually have 5 events this week, plus a 1 hour signing at the NFL Experience on Thursday night before I head on over to a friend’s charity event in Ybor City at Rein nightclub. I usually have a few options come Superbowl time.

Tampa only gets a Superbowl every 7or so years, so I have to make it work for me. When I was with Pepsi, I could get ticket from the New York home office, now I get them from friends in the beverage community.

But if I do get an invite to P Diddy’s party………….The camera will be by my side. Maybe I can get a picture with Paris Hilton .
