  1. Nice! That's a beautiful house but I've always thought it was strange how so many athletes buy million dollar houses in Weston of all places. Seems so out of the way from everything, to far from the beach and the action, but maybe the semi seclusion is why they like it? I'd just much prefer a house on Star Island, Sunny Isles or Harbor Beach...somewhere like that. I don't get it either. It is possible to have privacy, security, etc. and still be really close to everything. Just ask Pat Riley, Alonso Mourning, ARod and many others. There are very private communities in Coral Gables/Coconut Grove without public access and the houses are not cookie cutter nor are the celebrities hounded. As you mentioned, also on the beach (for example, Mike Piazza - Sunset Island). To each his own, I guess.
  2. I really don't care who likes Minervini or not but to base it on his feelings about the Mets is silly. JMO, but the guy loved and grew up with the Mets since he was a little kid so it seems natural to me that he cares about them. It's not like he jumped on their bandwagon or something. His childhood is entwined with the Mets and I just can't see knocking him for that. I'm sure many of you have other valid reasons for your negative feelings about the guy but that one seems weak.
  3. Congrats to Niner, that's our boy! :thumbup :notworthy
  4. Access Hollywood Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor?s ?Dancing With the Stars? status is in question after suffering an injury on Friday, Access Hollywood has confirmed. ?Misty May-Treanor sustained an injury on Friday and received immediate medical attention,? show producers told Access on Saturday in a statement. ?Despite previous reports, she did not break her ankle. She is resting comfortably at home. Doctors will reevaluate her condition on Monday and determine the outcome of her participation on the show.? However, earlier on Saturday, a source close to the show told Access that the volleyball star is out of the competition and will require surgery. Misty?s injury is the third so far on the show?s latest season ? booted comedian Jeffrey Ross suffered a scratched cornea during rehearsal and pro Karina Smirnoff twisted her ankle just before the season seven premiere. Though the competition is just two weeks old, Misty has already stepped out as a ?Dancing? star on the rise. She consistently received 21 points out of 30 for the host of dances she performed with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. And last week, Misty received some of her highest praise from the judges after performing an intense Paso Doble with Maks. ?Compared to what we [last] saw I want to thank you because that is the kind of determination we need,? judge Carrie Ann Inaba said on Monday?s show, before turning her attention to Maks. ?You gave her one of the most ambitious routines in week two, what are you doing?? And judge Bruno Tonioli also had high praise for Misty. ?It is mighty ?Xena The Warrior Princess,?? he raved, a reference to how Misty tackled the dance floor in her black costume. ?I love your energy, I love what you put into it. You forget the finesse ? you put so much power [that] sometimes you stumble a little bit. But you do a good job.? Backstage, following their performance, Misty told ?Dancing? host Samantha Harris, she had been working extremely hard in rehearsals to conquer the ballroom. ?I was frustrated more in myself [during the dance],? she said. ?He wants to see the best in me and I want the best out of me.? Misty and Maks are slated to dance the jive in next week?s competition. The Olympic champ has pulled double duty in recent weeks, competing on the AVP volleyball tour and training for ?Dancing.? Just two weeks ago, she and partner Kerri Walsh won the $1 million AVP Crocs Cup Shootout in Manhattan Beach, following their earlier victory on September 14 at the AVP Crocs Tour in San Francisco.
  5. Fantastic Everlong, thanks for posting! That showed so much more than what they showed on the pre-game show.
  6. Did anyone else catch it when Tommy said "well, I hope it really is a hurt shoulder..." or something along those lines?
  7. The dude that called the "safeout" during a Braves game. Im fairly certain this one WASN'T Bucknor... but at this point, my mind is forcing me to impose Bucknor's image on every blown call in the history of baseball I can soooo relate to how you feel! How that man has kept his job is beyond me. He must have the naked pictures of Bud Selig.
  8. CB Bucknor is, without a doubt, the worst umpire in the big leagues, if this were an isolated incident, yes, absolutely I would focus more on our team, but it seems that EVERY time Bucknor is on that field (especially behind the plate) he makes a critical error, there's only so many time you can use the "human error" excuse before it becomes general incompetence... Here's a quick exercise, name every major league umpire you can... on average you should only be able to name a handful, and out of that handful, 99% of those will be umpires that are horrible... outside of being friends with an ump or being ridiculously fanatical, fans should basically not know umpires by name... but the fact that most people know Bucknor by name, and associate him with being horrible at his job speaks volumes... You wanna give the team blame? Fine, super, do that... but the umpire should NEVER be directly responsible for changing the outcome of a game... yes, it would mean a tied game, but a tied game gives the advantage to the home team, increasing our chances of winning... Thank you! Before the game started I turned to my friend and said "oh crap, we have CB Buckner behind the plate tonight. I hate this guy!" As you pointed out, like most people, I don't know all the umpires but I NEVER forget Buckner. He has managed to have a successful career built on suckitude. I had a bad feeling about the outcome of the game after the 2 errors and there's no denying the players can take plenty of blame but Buckner's call was a killer. I honestly couldn't tell if Cantu was safe from my seat but there was someone sitting a couple of rows behind me with headphones who was freaking out saying he was safe. It's the home plate umpire's job to be in position to make the correct call in that situation. Erick, please find someone more worthy to defend. Buckner flat out sucks at his job and the whole world knows it. This is not a fluke.
  9. I'll be there again. It's an all-Marlins weekend for me.
  10. I'm convinced this guy was just here for shits and giggles. I highly doubt he was even a Marlins fan...he hasn't posted since the offseason, it seems. It's been a long time. Not surprising, a lot of long time posters have left or post very infrequently. As I recall he sometimes didn't post for quite a while and then would turn up again. I realize he was rude to you but he did bring a lot of humor to the board and he was rarely serious.
  11. Post to long.People tend to not read it when there that long. people who have short attention spans. You can tell pretty quick if a long post is going to be worth your time or not. Read the first few sentences then. Exactly! A good long post > than a bad short post and, seriously, is reading such a chore? I think Maybin is just fun as hell to watch and he had the crowd fired up tonight. I also think we'll see him in the starting lineup next year. Obviously, he's not going to hit .800 or .900 forever but he's impressive and certainly makes the future exciting. We were chanting "MVP! MVP!" in the fish tank for Maybin. Obviously, it was a joke, but this kid is making a hell of a statement. Is that where it started? If so, I'm not surprised since a lot of chants start in the fish tank. Other sections picked it up also and it was loud & clear where I sit and I'm in the club section, 1st base side. :thumbup
  12. It was obvious from the start that Josh was struggling but it was definitely a fun game to attend and Maybin fires up the fans. I'm looking forward to being there again tonight and tomorrow. The look back at the season video that they show brings back great memories. No matter what happens I know how much I always miss the Marlins when the season ends and I wouldn't miss this final home series for the world! Go Fish!

  14. Well, for those of you in SoFla....GO TO THE GAME! :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup Seriously, it's a Saturday. No excuses - just go to the damn game!
  15. His trade value is zilch right now. With regard to how he eventually adjusts/recovers from the surgery, I really don't know what to think at this point. Obviously, I hope for the best but only time will tell. How could anyone not root for this guy? He's been through so much in such a short time.
