What Should Miami Do With Its Graffiti-Covered Marine Stadium?

31

If you follow anyone who was down in Miami for the art fairs earlier this month, you might have seen their photographs of the Miami Marine Stadium, a decaying, dilapidated oceanfront venue for powerboat racing that turns 50 years old next week. Condemned in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew, it's since been plagued by… » 12/16/13 10:51pm 12/16/13 10:51pm

No One Notices The Spurs Because No One Notices San Antonio

Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,… » 6/08/13 4:11pm 6/08/13 4:11pm

The Marlins Are So Bad, Businesses Don't Want To Open Nearby

Apologies if it seems that we're dwelling on the failures of Marlins Park—but there are oh so many of them, each more embarrassing than the last. This one's about that huge "economic impact" the new stadium was supposed to bring to the area. More than a year after the stadium debuted, not one single business has opened… » 5/08/13 10:40am 5/08/13 10:40am

Good News, Miami! There's More Stadium Work For You To Publicly Finance.

Miami has another outdated stadium that needs hundreds of millions of dollars worth of renovations. A politician instrumental in getting the Marlins taxpayer funding says the renovations are necessary. The Dolphins don't have the cash or the desire to pay for it. Guess who's left? Miami-Dade County residents, whose… » 11/26/12 11:25am 11/26/12 11:25am

Naked Man Shot To Death While Eating Another Man's Face

We can dispense with the Ohio or Florida game. This kind of crazy only happens in Florida. Just south of the Miami Herald offices, to be sort of specific. At around 2:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon, people heard several gunshots along the 13th Street ramp of the MacArthur Causeway. According to Miami Police, a road… » 5/27/12 11:11am 5/27/12 11:11am

Miami TV Station Congratulates The Florida International University…

The Florida Panthers took a 2-1 series lead over the New Jersey Devils with an astonishing 4-3 win that came after falling behind 3-0 in the first period. It's understandable, then, that the story led off the 10:00 news on Miami's WSVN; perhaps unaccustomed to hockey success, they got a few details wrong—and later… » 4/18/12 8:54am 4/18/12 8:54am

Marlins President Calls Miamians Stupid, Jose Reyes Greedy

If you know anything about the sweetheart deal the city gave the Marlins to build a new stadium, you know team president David Samson basically bent Miami over a pinball machine and had his way with it. But he's far from done with the humiliation—with his remarks to a gathering of local business leaders yesterday,… » 3/07/12 12:50pm 3/07/12 12:50pm

Peyton Manning May Sign With The Jets Or Dolphins Or 49ers Or Not

The news is barely a few hours old that the Indianapolis Colts will not pay quarterback Peyton Manning his $28 million roster bonus, thus freeing him to sign with any NFL team next season. You know who's interested in snagging the four-time MVP? Everyone! Well, mostly. A select few would be thrilled to land Manning,… » 3/06/12 11:15pm 3/06/12 11:15pm

The American University Swim Team Went To Miami And Got Their LMFAO On

We've been inundated with links to this little video that the American University men's swim team made during a training trip to Miami Beach. That means one of two things: either this is on its way to being the next D1 viral video, or all the people sending links are on AU's swim team, and they really, really want you … » 3/05/12 9:45am 3/05/12 9:45am

Deadspin I-Team: Which Miami Player Necessitated A Stripper's Abortion?

The latest Yahoo Sports NCAA investigation is more of the usual: a lot of investigative horsepower and details devoted to NCAA rules that don't make a whole lot of sense in the first place. But, as Barry tweeted, this story, unlike SI's Tressel investigations, has stripper abortions. » 8/16/11 9:05pm 8/16/11 9:05pm

LeBron James Gets Hit In Mouth By Foe, "Hammered" By Teammate

Sure, the Miami Heat beat the Memphis Grizzlies by 33 yesterday, but this "Fox X Mo" clip from the end of the first half still bears mention. Why? Because America loves when LeBron James gets hit in the face and runs into teammate Dwyane Wade who, with a lowered shoulder, dropped him the floor like a sack of Cavaliers … » 3/13/11 11:30am 3/13/11 11:30am
