If you've ever wanted to visit 'Revis Island' make sure you're in Florida on Sept. 12 because on that day Revis Island will be a real place that actually exists. The mayor of Treasure Island Fla. Bob Minning has issued a special proclamation that will rename his city Revis Island for one day to honor Tampa Bay cornerback Darrelle Revis. Here are the details from the Buccaneers official website: 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!"
