    5 years ago my house was struck by lightning... Everything was toast....

    This has nothing to do with that....

    Champa Bay is on the verge of back to back Cup titles. It is a repeat of last year no doubt. Tampa will retain all the trophies we earned last year....

    So it is said. What thinks ye?

    Yes it can. And it's likely to.

    hmm i dont think lighting can strike twice in the same spot within seconds unless that said spot is very wet and a good conductor to ground.
    Even the route of it will change as the excited particales it travaled down will have gone.

    To keep this sports-related, I knew a guy who was hit by lightning on a golf course and again when lightening hit a gutter he was cleaning. He survived both incidents, so I think the gods were just messing with him 'cause he's a jerk.
