Tampa Bay Times Forum is the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning. In a few months it will also be hosting the Republican National Convention. The team had a great run when it won its championship in the 2003-2004 season but was really hurt by the hockey lockout the next year. Afterward the franchise went through a few tough years, but they are finally starting to rebound. The new owner Jeffrey Vinik is awesome. He put $40 million of his own money into remodeling the Tampa Bay Times Forum, including the addition of the party deck and the organ. He also hired Steve Yzerman as general manager. Every game he gives away $50,000 to a community hero. This offseason he is putting in a new $5 million high definition scoreboard. Next year I will have a total of 6 of my photos hanging in the forum. I can’t wait to go to a couple games again. Go Lightning!
