St. Petersburg, Florida -- Forget just being first in line. These folks are the first in the nation to start camping out at a Best Buy store in search of Black Friday deals.In the immortal words of one William Shatner at the 16th Annual Star Trek Convention in some random Holiday Inn: "PEOPLE...YOU NEED...TO GET A LIFE!"
The Davenport family pitched a pair of tents Wednesday at 10 a.m. in front of the Best Buy at Tyrone Square in St. Pete to snag deals that were still nine days away.
That made them the first people to start camping out at a Best Buy store anywhere in the country. To put that in perspective: there are more than 1,000 Best Buy stores in the United States.
