Gasparilla Invasion - Tampa

On February 7th the Pirate Vessel [I]Jose Gasparilla [/I]sailed (Arrrr was towed) into Tampa in the annual Gasparilla Invasion.

Is that anything like a sarsaparilla invasion?

It is sponsored by Budweiser and Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos so that should tell you something.

Pirates should be shot on sight… oh, wait… nevermind…

I’m waiting for the Somali’s to get mad at them for enforcing negative pirate stereotypes! :wink: :smiley:
