Looking for a way to show your support and send the Tampa Bay Lightning, fresh from a series tying 5-3 win over the Bruins on Saturday afternoon at the St. Pete Times Forum, off to Boston for game 5 in style? Then be at Tampa International Airport tomorrow (Sunday) morning at 10:30 AM. There, fans will group together to form the shape of a huge lightning bolt that will be visible to the team as their flight takes off.
In addition to the feel-good, team spirit aspects of this endeavor, there are prizes and giveaways at stake as well. The first 400 fans will receive gift bags, four of which will contain tickets for game 6 here in Tampa on Wednesday. Other bags will have autographed memorabilia and one will have a voucher for a $100 shopping spree at the Lightning Locker team store at the St. Pete Times Forum.
If you're planning to attend, you should look for the Cell Phone Wait Lot at Tampa International Airport. The lot where fans will gather is directly across the street from that, next to the economy parking garage. Lightning staff and airport attendants will be on hand to provide direction. Parking is free.
