Miami is the capital of South America. With many people from nations like Colombia, Venezuela, Uruguay, Argentina, etc, the gateway to the America’s is always in the news. Whether it’s the Miami real estate climate, the South Beach scene, or Miami’s non-stop sports action, Miami, Florida, has always learned how to find out how to grab a piece of the limelight.
Today, here is what’s going on in Miami.
- Peyton Manning may be the next Miami Dolphin. The Indianapolis Colts have until Thursday to release Manning or pay him a $28 million bonus. The situation has all of the Miami Dolphins fans on the edge of their seat, as they haven’t had a star quarterback in their city since Dan Marino!
- The Miami Heat have lost two games in a row. Uh-oh. What’s up with LeBron and company? Well, many haters are talking about him passing up last second shots, passing the ball to teammates – and it’s drawing ire from sports writers, commentators, and others across the city. Will LeBron be the man in the playoffs? We predict that King James hits the last second shot at least once from now until the end of the season. Take that, haters.
- Wine & Food Festival wrapped up last weekend. Pretty neat time – if you haven’t heard about it, Google it. It features all of the best culinary minds in Miami as well as a ton of talent from the Food Network. Rachel Ray, Guy Fieri, the whole gang is out and about, talking about what they have going on and giving demo’s to the onlookers who pay upwards of $300 for VIP passes to the food and wine tasting.
The Miami Marlins are perhaps the biggest upcoming event this year. The team has a brand spanking new stadium, and signed a host of veteran players, including Jose Reyes from the division rival Mets. “Big Mike” Stanton has changed his name to GianCarlo, and he’s expected to keep busting out this year. Not only do they have new players, but also a new Manager. Ozzie Guillen, the long time skipper with a lot of flair, will certainly help create some symmetry with the Latin people in Miami.
