Smug Mugs

Meet Rey Fuentes, Hurricane Baseball's new first base coach. He comes from Barry University, where I captured his personality in action a few years ago.

Mr Taylor Goes to Washington

With yesterday's trade of Jason Taylor to the Washington Redskins, the Dolphins parted ways with one of the team's all time greatest defensive players. More importantly, South Florida loses one of its all time people.

Orange Bowl Memory Lane

I was researching photos for a magazine when I came across this photo from after the 48-0 fiasco against Virginia last season, the last game ever at the Orange Bowl. A lone cheerleader ran with the flag the entire length of the field in Little Havana one last time.

We are less than 60 days away from our first game at Dolphin Stadium, and the season can't start soon enough for me, in part to flush the bad memories of the 2007 season out of my head.
