What could prompt Miami coach Tony Sparano to put his 5-bed 5-bath Mediterranean style home on the market? Could it be the Dolphins' 0-6 record? Their total lack of effort and execution? The whispers that Bill Cowher's finally ready to get back in the game? It's more prosaic: Tony gets lonely in that big old house.

"When I moved into my house I had seven people [in the house]," he said. "My daughter just moved out two weeks ago to go to college in Texas. I have zero people. Nobody is upstairs."

The Sparanos are asking $1.5 million for the home, in a gated community in Davie, down from the $1.7M they paid for it back in 2008. It could be a function of the market, or just an eagerness to sell now (or within the next two months). You know, for whatever reason.
