St. Pete Working on New Rays Stadium??

We got the first look at the commercial the mayors of St. Pete, Tampa, and Clearwater shot together to encourage Tampa Bay to support the Rays. Not the best acting I've ever seen, but nice to see them teaming up for the common good.

One interesting note is that Mayor Bill Foster says St. Pete is "working behind the scenes" on long-term plans for the Rays. I'm guessing it's in the very very very preliminary stages since Rays owner Stu Sternberg told the Tampa Trib that he was not involved in any behind the scenes efforts.

I also think Foster knows better than to attempt a deal behind closed doors after the 2008 waterfront stadium debacle. So that probably means nothing's changed since last month and he's still waiting on the Rays...who are still waiting on him.
