From Miami Herald columnist Greg Cote:
"Two NFL teams are about to gain entry to Super Bowl XLIII (that's 43 for you non-Romans) taking place Feb. 1 in Tampa, where preparations to accommodate the expected massive crowds already are well underway.
I don't mean preparations by the city or NFL. I mean preparations by (coincidentally) the 43 strip clubs that make Tampa the undisputed pole-dancing mecca of America.
Clubs are holding daily auditions for extra dancers, some are touting being open 24 hours during Super Bowl Week, and one is adding a 2,400-square-foot tent for expanded operations.
It's no wonder Tampa sometimes dubiously is called the ``Lap Dance Capital of the World.''
The city has a second, lesser-known nickname: `` Pacman Jones' Idea of Heaven.''
