Bryan Glazer Talks Super Bowl

June 2nd, 2011

A peppy Bryan Glazer spoke with conviction about the Tampa Bay region’s shot at the 2015 Super Bowl tonight at a fancy banquet that featured a roundtable Q & A with Tampa Bay franchise owners Glazer, Stu Sternberg and Jeff Vinik.

The event was broadcast live on WDAE-AM 620.

Emcee Rock Riley asked Glazer what he thought of Tampa Bay’s chances of snagging the 2015 Super Bowl, and Glazer unveiled a fighting spirit.

“I feel great about them. …We’re going to work our butts off to get the Super Bowl back here in 2015,” Glazer said. “[After years of cold weather cities,] the owners are ready to go back to warm weather. Us versus Phoenix, I promise you our nights are a lot warmer than theirs.”

Nice to hear Glazer take a shot at Arizona. Actually, it nice to just hear Team Glazer at all. Two interviews in one day today — that’s got to tie a record.

Hardly earth-shattering news on the Super Bowl’s return, but it’s probably a great idea for the Bay area to snag it in 2015, before the NFL has success hosting in cold weather and starts thinking they’ll dodge ice and snow every year.

    I wonder what kinda profits (?) owners get for hosting Super Bowls

    I hope its not another reason for Dbags from up north to congregate in the masses all around town like last time.

    The way I figure 2015 will be midway through our dynasty and we’ll be playing at home. Maybe we’ll even sell that one out.

    Dude, that’s called cash. Money. Capital. Bring ’em down. The more they spend, the more jobs are created.

    That’s the whole point of hosting the Super Bowl.

    What makes someone from up North a D-bag exactly, Espo?? Pleaswe ecbound on your hypothosis. Because it’s certainly not based on any sort off actual information. I grew up in Tampa. 30 years. Love that town to death. I now live in NY. Are there d-bags here. You bet. There are also a bunch of the most amazing people I have ever met. Wanna know a little secret? There are PLENTY of d-bags in Tampa too! Stop being so narrow minded. Stop trying to act like you are better then someone else. (Sorry to all, I see to be the morality police on this site today) God, I’m annoying. HAHAHA Hey, I just call it like I see it. Why so much hate? Take a step back from your hate-kool-aid and realize that we’re all in this mess (life) together. It would be a lot easier to get hrough it if we tried to get along and stopped bein such pety little two year olds. Joe nailed it. Super Bowls bring visibility to the area. Makes people want to come visit and spend their hard earned money in your economy. But why would you want that? They’re just d-bags right? Because they are different from you. That’s not myopic at all. Pathetic.

    I’m 27 years old. I’ve lived in Tampa my whole life. For the most part, people I come across from the northeast region of this country are rude and obnoxious. Not to say I don’t have friends from there and haven’t met friendly people, but just saying its the majority. I don’t actually have a problem with them coming to visit for the super bowl or any other vacation. Its the ones who decide to live here and turn this city into one of theirs that I find annoying. Its only the northeast for the most part. “Transplants” from out west or what most people consider the south or even Chicago don’t have the same attitude. I’ve only known a few people originally from here who choose to go live in New York or Boston, Philly etc, but meet many from up there who come here. My conclusion? This is just a desirable place to live. Their attitudes come to light usually only during sporting events, the beach, Dale Mabry, the mall, walmart… the usual places for them to gather in masses. On an individual basis, I treat everyone the same, with respect. I don’t act like I’m better than someone else but I do try to treat people better than those mentioned. Like I said, its not all of them. Guess I just needed some morality policing…
