  1. Got no problem w/Brady - even gave me his cell #, something NOONE [email protected] the TROP would do! .... He's thr only person to express an interest in a Sarasota, Clearwater, Fl, and former Baltimore fan who brings folks to see BBall games, often @ my own expense.,...... to supprtr the Rays & O's.... Hec, I dropped $1900 plus taking folks to the TROPthis year and on Suite 29, and sec 311, 313, & 300 Fri nite. plus food (over $250) and they (Rays crapped all over me. - kicked out 6 cheap bobbleheads of "action heros" after a visit to give them a check, and several unreturned phone calls. Hi Bob it's Brady Anderson. This is not my area but I'd be happy to try to help you out. My cell phone is xxx-xx5 -8699. Send me a text and we can discuss further. If you're not being accommodated in a way that's fair I'll happily leave you tickets to a game of your choice. Don't want to lose you as a fan.

So the Hilton could be built 10 years ago w/City Money (300 MILLION, bonds) - included $60 million "reserve cushion" to pay down bonds of in case of "lack of revenue".....(MR HILTON - hotel mgmt. makes money, employs some folks @ 9-10 per hour... Woo Hoo!! Some mgrs. make a bit more. BTW, the 60 mil ran out 3 years into the venture - now the CITY justs AUTOMATICALLY GIVES (line iten for you acountants) $10-15 million in TAX MONEY TO STAY SOLVENT. And swimmimg alone w/grandkid most summer sfternoons in the nice big HILTON indoor pool is great - .....Grandson says, "Why can't we invite some of the neighborhood kids to join us?" Nobody else is usung this nice big heated pool, jacusi, sauna exercise rooms w/latest equiptment, free business center wcomputers for our 1% ERS........"
