Back Where We Started

Ah, the new year -- a time to make resolutions, get a fresh start, and forget about the mountain of tossed monkey poop that is the Miami Dolphins. And what better way to do that than watching the Miami Heat? We used to be a football town. But that's all gone down the crapper -- thanks to the awesomeness of Pat Riley and the Three Kings with which he has blessed us. Sure, last season ended in disappointment when the Heat ultimately fell short in their quest for the NBA title, but we look to once again contend for a championship. But even last year, the journey was worth it. And this is a new season, one when the Big Three -- LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh -- are expected to be in the thick of the hunt once more.

Partake of this year's journey at Tailgators Sports Bar and Grill (3001 E. Commercial Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) as the Heat hosts the Atlanta Hawks Monday night. Watch our kings kick ass in the land of 17 TVs, pool, Ping-Pong, beer pong, foosball, basketball, 2010 Golden Tee, and darts. Let's leave the shitty Dolphins in the dust for a while. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. Visit and
