    Miami Dolphins Set to Play Jets in First Divisional Game Ever in London

    The Miami Dolphins are set to become the first (of two) teams to play a divisional game in London in 2015. On Thursday, the NFL announced its trio of games that are played annually across the pond, and the Dolphins are included in that batch. The slight difference this time around is that Miami wi ...

    Dave Hyde, the Sun Sentinel, and the Crap State of South Florida Sports Journalism

    The Sun Sentinel's Dave Hyde picked the wrong damned time to coddle Dan Marino. Five days before the New York Post broke the Marino love-child story, Hyde wrote a piece on the Dolphins quarterback's work with autism. And that's cool. However, the first paragraph in that column read thusly: People ... More >>

    Morning Juice: If This Keeps Up, We'll Just Call It the "Dolphin Flu"

    ‚ÄčIt's Friday morning. Let's tackle the toughest issue first.In what may be the final straw for South Florida working families, the Dolphins looked totally uninspired while playing a game that doesn't count -- even though they won (which might cheer us up, but since it doesn't count, no). Both Dav ... More >>

    The Greatness of Small Expectations

    How do you keep fans -- and sportswriters -- happy in the NFL? Make sure you toss in a few ridiculously bad seasons in the mix of a bunch of mediocre ones. It's all about expectations, folks. Remember that. Don't believe it? Let's look at the Dolphins, a team that during the last couple deca ... More >>

    Same Old Mr. Hyde

    I was just thinking the other day that Dave Hyde hadn't seemed to have written anything monumentally soppy or boneheaded in a good long while. Was he getting better or did I just not give a damn anymore? I didn't know until now, the beginning of the football preseason. He's still the same old Hy ... More >>

    It's Official

    I'll admit, I've been a little worried about the Bears (I'm not a Chi fan, this is about vague affinities and cold cash). Would Manning slice up the Bears' D, making the field seem twice as wide as normal (at his best, PM gives the gridiron an almost infinite quality)? Would Grossman botch everythin ... More >>

    Post Wins Pulp Headline Competition

    The Sun-Sentinel went with the bland: "Champions." The Miami Herald chose the rather obnoxious: "Gator Nation." And the winner of the big fat snappy headline for the University of Florida's win last night to take the national championship comes from the Palm Beach Post: "Gator Raid." Clever, esp ... More >>

    Pants Aflame

    Those touchy-feely sports writers. Some of them write about games their entire careers and never grow up, trapped in a kiddie-land -- with free buffets and sandwiches at stadiums stretching across the great expanse of America -- forever. That's the only way I can explain their disillusionment at th ... More >>

    Say Bye To Saban

    The Sun-Sentinel's Alex Marvez is the first to report definitively that Nick "So Long" Saban is -- surprise, surprise -- leaving the Dolphins for the Crimson Tide. After lying about it for weeks, Saban's final insult was standing up team owner H. Wayne Huizenga, who he was supposed to meet this mor ... More >>

    Can The Fish Go Post?

    Will Miami Stick It To Stoda? It's a slow news day. So slow that all three big dailies' web sites are headlined by a double fatality on Sunday on Donald Ross Road in Palm Beach County. That's to be expected. But it wasn't completely slow at the Miami Herald, Sun-Sentinel, and Palm Beach Post over t ... More >>

    Great Scott

    Jake Hey I make fun of Dave Hyde too much not to point out his story on Sunday about Dolphin great Jake Scott. It was a good idea to track the guy down and a lucky stroke not only to find him at home, but that he was kind of enough to give Hyde (barely) enough for a story. And it's an excellent art ...

    The Inscrutable Crist

    Sunday was a big day for Charlie Crist and Jim Davis stories. Both the Miami Herald and the Palm Beach Post had twin, front-pagep profiles on the gubernatorial candidates -- and all of them were interesting. One of the more interesting comparisons was the way the Herald and Post handled the gay ques ... More >>

    Loria, Arison, Arison, Loria

    Not Arison -- Or Is It? Dave Hyde's column about Mickey Arison is on the Internet. The only problem: It's accompanied by a photograph of Jeffrey Loria (thanks to NT colleague Candice Gulley for the heads-up). But hey, who cares? They both own sports teams and sort of look alike. In fact, they migh ... More >>

    Dr. Cuban and Mr. Hyde

    Cuban This back-and-forth between Sentinel sports columnist Dave Hyde and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is pretty funny. You can't really lose when a dunderheaded scribe goes up against a jerky billionaire. (An aside: What's with the brackets where parentheses ought to be?) Hyde also had a colu ... More >>

    The Death of Riley

    To give you an idea of how badly the Heat have been playing in the Finals, consider that Dave Hyde has stopped his continuing worship of Pat Riley long enough to start complaining. But if you want to read some reality about Riley, check out this column from the Palm Beach Post's Dave George. T ... More >>

    Winning Is Everything

    I'll be rooting for the Heat tonight, no doubt. But a part of me is still gonna be pissed about Stan Van Gundy. And if you've been reading sports columnist Dave Hyde's commentary in the Sun-Sentinel throughout these playoffs, you've probably noticed that as the Heat's success grows, he's become more ...

    See Prehistoric Giant Sloth Here!

    The Palm Beach Post and Sun-Sentinel both ran with the giant sloth story on their front pages this morning. The stories, by Tim O'Melia and Peter Franceschina, respectively, both did the job telling of the find of ancient bones in the muck of the Everglades in Hendry County. It was about as good as ...

    -- The Sun-Sentinel's Community News section was at it again Sunday with a headline that belongs in the Hall of Fame of D'Uh: "Dry Weather Increases Risk of Brush Fires." This follows last week's headline about keeping children safe around pools: "Water-Safety Experts Say There's No Subsitute for Su ... More >>
