Tampa Bay Business Journal Hosts #BusinessOfSports Forum

I was disappointed to miss the Tampa Bay Business Journal's #BusinessOfSports forum today at...well, the Forum.  But saw a lot of tweets about it:
That's what took them three years?!?
No surprise that the business community attending a sports forum in Tampa would prefer a stadium in Tampa, but we know for a fact there are more big businesses that would potentially buy baseball tickets on the West side of the bay.
This may be an understatement.  The man behind the race formerly known as the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg alludes to one of the region's biggest problems when it comes to putting butts in seats.

But while the grand prix will likely look for national sponsors to fill Honda's void, the Rays are still hoping Tampa's local businesses step up and start buying more tickets.
