Proclamation: Treasure Island to Become "Revis Island" for a Day

Posted Sep 10, 2013

On Thursday, Mayor Bob Minning of Treasure Island, FL will issue a special proclamation rechristening his city as “Revis Island” to celebrate CB Darrelle Revis and the Buccaneers’ 2013 home opener


By special proclamation of Mayor Bob Minning, the City of Treasure Island, Florida will change its name to “Revis Island, Florida” on Thursday, September 12 at 2:00 p.m. ET  The ceremony will take place at The Club at Treasure Island (400 Treasure Island Causeway).  The public is invited to attend and encouraged to wear Tampa Bay Buccaneers colors, jerseys and apparel to the event, which will honor the Buccaneers’ newly-acquired, four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis. Buccaneers cheerleaders, mascot and front office representatives are expected to be in attendance.

 

“Despite Sunday’s heartbreaking loss to the Jets, we’re still very excited about the upcoming season,” explained Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning.  “Darrelle Revis was an outstanding offseason acquisition.  We wanted to welcome Mr. Revis to our island community and celebrate the Bucs’ 2013 home opener in a fun, family-friendly way.  Go Bucs!”

 

According to the mayoral proclamation, on Thursday, September 12, Treasure Island, Florida will hereby become “Revis Island, Florida” for one day – and Revis Island is described in the proclamation as “an island filled with interceptions, touchdown returns and batted passes.”

 

“I’m honored and humbled to receive this special honor from the City of Treasure Island,” said Revis.  “Ever since I became a Buccaneer, the support I’ve received from the Tampa Bay community has been tremendous.  I’ll do my best to live up to this honor on Sunday afternoon in our home opener against the New Orleans Saints.”

 

When asked to describe the differences between Treasure Island and Revis Island, Mayor Minning paused briefly before replying: “In Treasure Island, we have the most beautiful beaches in all of Tampa Bay, and we always remind beachgoers to wear the appropriate sun screen.  But I guess at Revis Island, you don’t need any sun screen – because at Revis Island, you’re ALWAYS covered!”

 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, September 15 at 4:05 pm in the 2013 regular season home opener.  For tickets, please visit www.buccaneers.com, or call 866.582.2827.
