What exactly does Miami need to do to confirm it's a culturally competent city? It seems as if the Big Orange is always going above and beyond to prove itself, yet it's never enough.

Pamela Druckerman, a Miami native who moved away after high school to do things like collect Ivy League degrees and write books extolling the virtues of French parenting, took to the New York Times this weekend to announce that Miami isn't quite there yet. Why? Well, simply because the Magic City wasn't providing her with "enough surprising interactions and ideas."

Yes, apparently the bar for cultural relevance is now set at making sure blond ladies who went to Columbia University have pleasant chitchat while they're staying here.

Two years ago, local porn stars Angelina Castro and Sara Jay offered blowjobs to fans if the Heat won.
It's the playoffs. Three-peat. LeBronmania. Whatever: For horndog Miamians, the Heat games are also, apparently, the perfect opportunity to ask strangers to watch basketball. Or, you know, "watch basketball."

On Craigslist, more than 30 posts from the past couple of weeks specifically mention Heat games in personal posts soliciting sex. It's not the first time the NBA Finals have set hormones raging in the Magic City. Who could forget the 2012 finals, when two South Florida porn stars made a promise: If the Heat won the series, the two women would give free blowjobs to any fans who met a few stipulations.
