The Tampa Bay Devil Rays will FINALLY unveil their new logo and colors — as well as forever exorcise the Devil from their name — in a very special ceremony this Thursday, and they're gonna do it the only way TAMPA knows how: with more style than Fashion Week, baby.

The team is going big time for Thursday's official uniform/logo/colors unveiling (4-8 p.m. at Straub Park in downtown St. Petersburg) by bringing in nearly 20 players (including Carl Crawford, B.J. Upton and Delmon Young, but not Carlos Pena, who will be on a cruise) plus former stars Wade Boggs and Fred McGriff for the "fashion show" and appearances. … Kevin Costner and his Modern West band will play starting at 6:30.

…Followed by the All-State High School a cappella choir at 7:30 sharp!  Bring the kids!  There's gonna be funnel cakes, and this year the Tilt-a-Whirl passed safety inspection!  Weeeeeeeee!

p.s. Be friends with Costner's band over at MySpace.
