New Hillsborough County web site features Tampa Bay Rays in rotating photo panel

Hillsborough County's newer, slicker web site includes something a bit provocative. 

The site includes a dominant photographic image that changes with each visit. We refreshed it several times and three different images came up. One features the iconic spires of the University of Tampa administrative building. Another features the University of South Florida.

And the third? The Tampa Bay Rays team store. Yes, the one in downtown Tampa that sells gear for the baseball team that plays in St. Petersburg.

Not Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Not the Tampa Bay Times Forum downtown or even Steinbrenner Field, the spring training location of the New York Yankees next to Ray Jay.

This from a county government whose elected leaders keep making googly eyes at the Rays, whose owners say they want out of Tropicana Field. That's going to go over well across the bay.
