They're thinking about moving the game to Minneapolis.

or

They could re-schedule the Chargers/Chiefs game to Week 8 (both teams' current bye week), meaning the Chiefs/Bucs game can be rescheduled to Week 11.

My guess is with all the players and staff living in Tampa, they'll chose option B.

Yeah, on a serious note...

This is just another side effect of how terrible something like this can be.  And I'm not talking about a bunch of rich NFL people.  I'm talking about the working people that rely on those games for their income.

So not only do they have to worry about storm damage messing up their entire area, they also lost all that income for the game not being played.

That goes for everyone from the person collecting money for parking to the person that owns the local restaurant, and all the people that work there.

I'm serious when I say it's not funny...

Water Polo is already Xtreme -- spectators just don't see it much because the grabbing and kicking happens below the water.  I guess maybe in-pool cameras are changing that.

I knew a woman in college who played water polo.  She happened to be a solid 8-10 inches taller than most of her opponents, with long legs that gave her a 'reach' advantage. Her favorite move was to hold the ball with her throwing arm, tread water with just her other arm, and use her legs to wrap around her defender and pull them under water so she could shoot/pass.

So the fellow in the argument says that his garage floods in a bad high tide. What does he think is going to happen in the next 10 years? I guess it won't matter because this house will probably be gone in the next few days. One less thing to worry about.

You'd think he would have sold his house by now if he knows it's in a terrible location.

He'll be looking for a government bailout soon.

Tampa be farked.

I'm a native South Floridian and I saw what a handful of minor to major storms did to Fort Lauderdale and Miami over the last 35 years. Each small to big storm broke trees, smashed windows, and generally weeded out the weakest and easiest broken things each time.

Your home not strong enough for a cat 3? Minor damage, you get a new roof, maybe the insurance company buys you hurricane windows, etc. Throughout the years most of Florida has had semi-regular "pruning" so to speak.

Tampa hasn't had a cleanout in 100 years. This will be BIG.

It's like the difference between a forest that experiences annual small fires vs. a forest where no fire has been for a century.

Insurance makes sure everything is up to code or you don't get insurance so not sure what you are talking about.

What did blow my mind was I was walking to Publix the other day and took note of all the teee overhangs on power lines.  Reminded me of SouthEast Asia.  Had infrastructure guys in town yesterday and not sure what they were doing but it looks like they were taking notes.

I play. It's physical, but you can't fall down so there is some balance. You can do a lot of grabbing/pushing/jostling before it rises to injurious. I swam before I picked up polo and my fav thing is to subtly pull back on someone going a bit faster than I prefer-would have improved swimming!

We're all a bit hopeless on land.

Is it flood damage? Yeah it's not covered. Florida was an exception but no longer. Many insurance companies excluded flood damage from hurricane policies about 10 years ago. Wind damage sure. Roof torn off and rain damage? Covered. The ocean rises 12 feet and marches inland? Nope. Water drains clogged by debris and flooded your home? Nope. Sewer system backed up as result of the storm caused flooding and flooded your home? Mmmmm probably not.
You must have specific flood insurance coverage. Many mortgage companies in Florida require it now.

I mean what kind of dopey insurance company would cover you for flood damage in drained swamp land located below sea level in hurricane alley.

You answered your own question. And as someone who just got a new four point and wind mitigation done, I can tell you it is incredibly easy to pass an inspection when you hire the inspector yourself. I also know of zero insurance agencies who would force you to have hurricane windows but would pay for them in a payout to better protect the home going forward.

Those big invasive trees all over? Those are going to be the first to go. Get a nice tough little cat 2 to roll through every ten years, those trees never get big enough to do too much damage. Not the case in Tampa.

Lets talk about downtown, when was the last time the buildings over a few stories saw winds over 100mph? Here in Fort Lauderdale, hurricane Wilma tore almost every window out of a few of our 20 story plus buildings which were rather new at the time with just 100mph winds, you think Tampa's buildings are better or worse?

When was the last time Tampa saw a storm surge over 5'? And what if the predictions of 10' come true?

All I'm saying is, Tampa is farked. From experience.
