So far, the morning brings no new information on what, exactly, happened yesterday in Miramar -- just that whatever it was was horrible. WPLG has some video with interviews from neighbors. In the meantime, here's what else is happening in South Florida:The U.S. Justice Department has indicted Alb ... More >>
Flickr.comThey got Jason Taylor back, and they got two big corners, filling the biggest needs from last year. But still, when NFL.com came out with the latest power rankings earlier this week, the division-champion Miami Dolphins were right in the middle of the league: number 17. Surely this ... More >>
Why don't we get drunk and...stop writing horrible songs? The Miami Dolphins announced today that Dolphins Satdium will henceforth be known as LandShark Stadium. We won't even get into the fact that the Marlins and the Dolphins play in that stadium, and Sharks eat both of those animals. (I bet ... More >>
Deuce McAllister that is. He was released yesterday by the New Orleans Saints. He might be a good fit with Miami, though the Dolphins' 11-5 record puts them near the bottom of the waiver priority list. Still, this is a day for immature headline writers across this nation to celebrate.
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 >>
The Miami Dolphins beat the Jets Sunday to win the division and make it to the playoffs. It's a great achievement for a team that went 1-15 last year and a nice gift for the fans. But a miracle? That's what a headline on the the Sun-Sentinel's front page called it this morning -- a " ... More >>
Just before the game that would decide whether the Dolphins or Jets went to the NFL Playoffs, Jets QB Brett Favre delivered this rousing pep talk to his teammates: "Hey, if it works out, it works out. If it doesn't, it doesn't." It didn't. I haven't seen so many treats tossed at Dolphins since my la ... More >>
If there was a rash of Dolphins-related suicides around 10:45 p.m. last night, one local TV station certainly won't be reporting on it. That's because Channel 7, WSVN, hates the Miami Dolphins and doesn't care if the team's fans kill themselves. Or maybe some intern just made a horrible mistak ... More >>
Nope. Fact is, this team isn't nearly as good as its record suggests. Overrated? Maybe, but you can't really over-rate a team that spent the previous season flirting with a record for professional football futility. So let's try this: If next week the Dolphins defeat the New York Jets, then the Dolp ... More >>
Slip-N-Slide's 15th Anniversary Party at Hotel Victor in Miami Beach was definitely the best party of 2008. Baby tigers, porn stars, open bars, and lots of millionaire thugs showing off their jewelry. Trina was posing for photos as Keith Sweat performed. I got to sit and talk to Slip-N-Slide's fo ...

The people who love the Dolphins are having a pretty good year, too. At least if you judge by the recent totals in fan voting for this year's NFL Pro Bowl. Four, that's right, FOUR Miami Dolphins are in first place in their respective positions in on-line fan balloting. This compared to zero, that's ... More >>

This Sight Still Makes Me Cringe Yeah, I never thought I'd write those words, but I'm feeling it right now for Monday's matchup against Ohio State. Don't get me wrong, I totally understand the Gator haters that David Fleshler wrote about in the Sun-Sentinel this morning (which includes some great ... More >>
The Dolphins blew it yesterday, or I should say the Dolphins' offense blew it. Had Miami beaten Jacksonville, they'd have been in the thick of the playoff race, believe it or not. And even though Jax QB David Garrard was sensational, the D held them pretty well. Naw, it was Joey Harrington, O-coordi ... More >>
That 1-6 Record Is Not So Bad. Think Positive!
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 >>
The $8 million man will lead the Dolphins out of the desert. Honest.
