After two decades of NFL seasons lost at sea, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the first team to make the Super Bowl a home game when they take on last year's Super Bowl winner, the Kansas City Chiefs

Tampa Mayor Jane Castor sent Axios some smack talk. Here's her message to Kansas City's mayor, Quinton Lucas:

The Sunshine State already ran the Chiefs out of town once, but I know our Bucs will finish the job. Mayor Lucas, when you’ve had enough of Kansas City winters, we invite you to come enjoy our beautiful weather and see for yourself why Tampa is called Title Town.

More fun ahead of the big game ...

🚙 Would you sell your car to watch the game at Raymond James Stadium?

  • That's about how much tickets cost, ranging from $9,000 up to $24,310 per seat.
  • The Tampa Bay Times breaks down the eye-watering sums you can spend to see the game IRL.

📺 Where to watch: If you'd rather hang onto your ride, Creative Loafing has a list of local joints with watch parties and food and drink deals on Super Bowl Sunday.

  • And want some Bucs gear that's a little bit different? Look here and here.

✈️ Southwest Airlines and American Airlines are adding extra non-stop flights between Tampa and Kansas City for fans during Super Bowl week.

If you're not excited for Tom Brady to play in another Super Bowl, think instead about Capt. Cleve Johnson.

  • The volunteer cannon operator on the stadium's pirate ship told WTSP he hasn’t missed a single home game in 22 years.
  • Learning about Capt. Cleve's job and seeing his beaming smile make this story well worth a read.

This story first appeared in the Axios Tampa Bay newsletter, designed to help readers get smarter, faster on the most consequential news unfolding in their own backyard.

Developer United Properties shared this not-yet-publicized rendering of the Four Seasons lobby in downtown Minneapolis with Axios.

The state of play: The 222-room hotel — which will be Minnesota's only five-star property — is part of the 37-story RBC Gateway Tower office-retail-condo project at Nicollet and Washington, the largest current development in the Twin Cities at a cost north of $400 million. It's set to open in 2022.

Americans increasingly see China as an enemy

One in three Americans, and a majority of Republicans, now view China as an enemy of the United States, according to a new survey from Pew Research Center.

By the numbers: Just 9% of Americans consider China a "partner," while 55% see Beijing as a "competitor" and 34% as an "enemy."

Scoop: Leaked HHS docs spotlight Biden's child migrant dilemma

Fresh internal documents from the Department of Health and Human Services show how quickly the number of child migrants crossing the border is overwhelming the administration's stretched resources.

Driving the news: In the week ending March 1, the Border Patrol referred to HHS custody an average of 321 children per day, according to documents obtained by Axios. That's up from a weekly average of 203 in late January and early February — and just 47 per day during the first week of January.
