It can be hard to relate to Ireland's rolling green hills and blustery (and often impossibly charming) cliffside villages, but if there's one thing South Florida understands, it's how to raise a glass and toast to a damned good time.

And as the San Francisco 49ers punted the Fins' collective dicks to the t ... More >>
Last night was the season finale of Hard Knocks, which means it's all downhill for the Miami Dolphins from here on out.
