Just got home from Tampa only to find that everything in my luggage was wet!!!....How did this happen to me? My friends luggage was fine!....This couldn't have been the result of rain, because even the center items were wet! What happened???

Were they soaking wet, or just damp? Is it possible you had a container leak in your luggage?

That's why you shouldn't put bottles of anything in your luggage.

One time I put a bottle of tequila in my luggage. I wrapped it up in clothes in hopes that it wouldn't break. When I picked up my bag after the flight, it seemed damp and smelled of tequila. I figured right away that it was my bottle, so I just dealt with it and when I got home (since it was really late) I just put it in the bathtub to deal with in the morning. The next morning I wake up and go to deal with the damage and notice that my bottle didn't break at all, but everything still smelled. Must've been someone else's bottle that broke.

Maybe the question you should be asking is why was your friend's luggage dry?

It was my bottle, Steve. Sorry about that.

You need to provide flight details in order to even have a more than educated guess as to what happened.
The bags could have been loaded in a ULD (wiki it) typically a LD3 pallet for bags. Frozen fish often comes out of TPA - some airlines mix pallets, some throw bags in the rear hold, some "deck" pallets - again lacking flt info you can't assertain. I suspect the water is melted ice.
I'd wash the clothes.

Definitely, you'll never know exactly what the clothing was dampened with.
