Super Bowl tourists, Dave Barry is not kidding

Train00 dumpshark dade ho 
Columnist Dave Barry gave tourists in Miami  for the Super Bowl some very useful tips that may not be taken seriously -- but they need to be.

Let's start with his mention of the fact that there is  a chance that you may bump into sharks while riding public transportation. Sandy L. Goodrich provided Dave with Exhibit -A. This is evidence that a live nurse shark was riding a Metromover near Bayfront Park in downtown Miami, July 20, 2009.

"We looked at him; he didn't really say anything, " Goodrich, a Miami legal secretary, said of the man clutching the shark. "I was just so freaked out about the shark on the floor."

Surveillance cameras in Overtown showed two  men -- one on a bike and the other on foot -- dragging it down Northwest North River Drive to fish markets in hopes of selling it for $10.

"It was full of flies, " Casablanca Fish Market owner Jorge Sanchez said. "It was still alive. It was dry ... I do buy shark ... not this kind of crazy stuff."

It is clear, Dave is not kidding, so read his column closely.

There's a joke here somewhere about sharks and sports agents, but I won't even mention the idea.

Actually, it's not a shark, it's Jimmy Buffett having recently been expelled from Sunlife Stadium.


I <3 Dave Berry.


It is just a joke.
