Yeah, I saw that- what I'm saying, they always seem to focus on the same cities over and over. The closest things they've ever done to Tampa is in Atlanta, GA. I like Nintendo, but I'm not driving all the way up there.

Thats cause they only focus on the major cities. They don't have time to do it in every city. And they'll get more publications in the major city.
