  1. Dolphins CEO Mike Dee says their future in Miami is "clearly bleak". They are refusing to "invest" any more of their own money into Sun Life Stadium. Can they possibly be even more tone deaf? Miami doesn't want yet another boondoggle. All their money is tied up in the monstrosity where the Orange Bowl used to be. I personally am pissed off that they demanded to piggyback on the measure to add a slot for MLS to the major-league sports sales tax break, which would've given Orlando City funds for a stadium to attract MLS.
  2. Ok, I can't even joke. That is how bad this team is. But so is Toronto and Houston! Don't forget the Cubs. :mischief
  3. We might be that team from major league. I saw this, and thought of the Rachel Phelps jigsaw pinup. Then I went to the office restroom and threw up lunch, breakfast, and last night's Oreos. Because we do not have an owner that passable for attractive, not to mention not being female. :banghead :confused
  4. Fort Lauderdale Strikers suck this year. Currently 0-1-3 (W-D-L) in the NASL spring season (they split their year in two this year). Miami launches an NPSL soccer team, Miami United. It's 4th tier, below NASL and USL Pro. Sun Life Stadium will host Group B in the CONCACAF Gold Cup on July 12. Trinidad and Tobago v. Haiti, then Honduras v. El Salvador. Spain's national team will host Haiti at Sun Life on June 8.
  5. I don't like the lighting they put on your showcase. I have a feeling the colors will look much better in person. At least they didn't try to do something too radical, like they did with the Fish. And it seems the only people who actually don't like the Jags unis are the reviewers. UniWatch savaged it. But what does he know?
  6. Someone on my Twitter feed retweeted this: @LoMoMarlins Logan Morrison A kid just walked up, hugged my leg & said "daddy". Not sure if realizing i wasnt his dad or the fact that I $hit my pants scared him off...
  7. So, how many no-nos will Mark Buehrle add to Marlins history? :mischief
  8. I bet Khan already has his lawyer looking at ways to get out of that contract, though. I hope they stay. just preparing for the worst. Not happening. Khan's company is the only company who provides bumpers to Toyota. Period. They also provide most of the bumpers used by the U.S. Big Three. Khan himself works with Southeast Toyota in Jacksonville, commuting there frequently, so he has more than a slight connection to the city. Weaver left money on the table to sell to somebody who would keep the Jaguars here. Ed Roski, the brains behind the City of Industry stadium project in LA, offered Weaver $800 million. He instead sold it to Khan for $760 million. Plus, I don't need to remind you guys this. The Jaguars this year are the highest-drawing NFL team in Florida. They've been outdrawing the Bucs 4 out of the last 7 years (and on-par 2 of the other 3). So despite the wet dreams of ESPN, the Jaguars are NOT leaving Jacksonville. Not now, nor anytime soon.
  9. I like him in the orange jersey, but the multi-color fin and pants need to go. :mischief
  10. A multi-colored fin is a bit much, but a little update isn't a bad thing. The changes made to Raymond were largely successful (until they changed the performer the next year).
  11. I like the Orange top. I may need to get one after all. Good homage to the Orange Bowl.
  12. I'm sure we could get Carlos Zambrano for a song. But if they're really going for Buehrle, they should focus on him. a Johnson-Buehrle front end would be absolutely dynamite. Getting Buehrle I think partly depends on how his relationship with Ozzie was when they were in Chicago.
  13. ESPN picked up from MLB.com on Pujols. They say Saturday. Interesting. I don't see Pujols leaving St. Louis, but at least Loria's pretending like he's serious.
  14. ... no, I can't. It's way too easy. I still stand behind Publix Field.
  15. A tifo display by South Florida United, the Strikers' supporters, during a match last month. Against FC Tampa Bay. (Who can't use the "Rowdies" name because a copyright squatter called Classic Ink bought it first.) The Strikers finished 4th out of 8 in the division-2 NASL, and get to host a playoff game in the 6-team playoffs. They are hosting FC Edmonton on Saturday night. Winner plays 2nd-seed Puerto Rico Islanders next weekend.
  16. Here's a gem from Twitter: FauxJohnMadden Chicago White Sox trading manager Ozzie Guillen to the Florida Marlins. Dolphins fans are hopeful they take Tony Sparano in the deal. :mischief
  17. Aramis Ramirez? OH GOD NO!!! Everybody else? Nice speculation.
  18. Heres hoping Ozzie helps Hanley come back next year. Well he was a shortstop in his playing days. Shouldn't hurt. 2012 is actually going to be fun. Especially if they get that big money free agent Loria allegedly promised.
  19. yeah, the Marlins are a JV team. i'd rather us be a hotel franchise. jeez. Now that I think of it, the M does kinda look like Westin's "W" brand. :mischief Loria obviously overthought this. I have to be honest, I don't see how this is Miami in any way. (I mean, I'm not a Miami resident, but come on...) And really, why completely give up on Marlins logos? Sure, the Marlins have not given many people reason to take them seriously at times in its history, but there is plenty of good history for the team to hang its teal hat on. Certainly a lot more than many teams. At the very least, Loria could've brought in some actual Miami residents to assist in the design. And by actual Miami residents, I don't mean South Beach. I like the version above too, but I think someone changed some of the colors. I'd like that version better too. Darker yellow, lighter blue.
  20. Speaking is his strength. Have you ever heard him try to speak without a teleprompter?
  21. Wait, hhGregg? That idea scares me. Those stores have been popping up like weeds here in Orlando. It's Best Buy with half the selection, 1/4 the knowledge and double the price. If we're going to go crazy, why not Bimbo Field? (Bimbo = Mexican bread/snack maker that bought Sara Lee)
