Hello Tampa! Lisa here, with an update on your Tampa Bay Lightning! BeTheThunder

October has long been my favorite month. You have College Football, NFL, all things pumpkin flavored, cooler temperatures (if we are lucky), and hockey. Each year I forget how much I truly love October until the start of the NHL season. And this year has been no exception.

Hockey season started full strength almost two weeks ago, but it was not until last night that our Lightning were at home for the first time. It was great to see the hustle and bustle of all the Bolts fans walking to the game last night after work. I swear almost everyone had a jersey on.

This season is sure to be full of hat tricks, high-sticking, and hooking but that's not why we love our Lightning. The Lightning showed us their potential last year, and I know they have that same potential this year. Add to that a newly renovated arena with a new logo and you have a recipe for another great season.

Coming up, our Lightning will take on the New York Islanders Thursday night, and the Buffalo Sabre's on Saturday night before going out of town for a couple of games. The Bolts end the month playing the newest NHL team the Winnipeg Jets.

If I were you, I would go online and check out the 10 and 21 game deals the Lightning offer, and secure your spot in this years drive to the playoffs.

That's all for now, but check in later for more Tampa Florida News, and other things to do in Tampa Bay! And remember, BE THE THUNDER.
