Super Bowl Sub-Plot #5: The Strip Clubs Of Tampa

There are several key storylines that will beaten into the ground by everyone who covers the Super Bowl over the next week. We will beat them down even further.

Ok, this one is more of a blogger obsession than a major media obsession. Why? Because we bottom feeders love scandal, and there is no greater recipe for scandal than rich, anxious athletes facing the most pressure-packed moment of their lives ... and adding naked ladies.

Plus, this year's host city is legendary for the breadth and quality of its gentlemen's clubs. Many, many, many individuals are in town for something other than a chance to win a championship and they need a place to unwind, too. Heck, even if you are nowhere near the greater Tampa-St. Pete area, you can probably find a place that will allow you to watch dancing girls and football simultaneously. Failing that, some dude at your Super Bowl party will probably get drunk enough to take their clothes off and run out into the snow.

The moral of the story is that dancing girls and football go hand-in ... well, not hand. But you get the idea.
