Are you a 6'4" man with an athletic build, a flare for loud fashion, a lot of money on your hands, and a hankering to do a little good for charity? Well, good news, because Dwyane Wade's closet is currently on sale.

Wade has teamed up with flash sale site TheRealReal.com to sell off some of his hand-me-downs to benefit his charity Wade's World Foundation. There are some tasteful Tom Ford shirts, Prada pants and Dolce & Gabanna blazers for sale, but this being Dwyane Wade, there are also quite a few colorful pieces that are only for the sartorially brave. Let's take a look.

The Miami Gardens Ravens were gearing up to take on the Carol City Chiefs at Miami Carol City Park. Both teams plays in the Flo Rida-sponsored Florida Youth Football League, which includes children as young as five. The park was packed with families.

Then something odd appeared. Young girls in pink shirts and socks began pushing a white coffin decorated with balloons around the field. It was an eerie display for a youth-oriented event taking place in a neighborhood that has long battled gang violence and crime.

Five Ways the Panthers Could Get Florida To Care About Hockey Again

The Florida Panthers' new management has decided there will be no more freebies. You're cut off, South Florida. No more free tickets with the purchase of a Publix sub.

The Panthers want you to pay to watch them play, and as you can see from the above photo of their game on Monday, you have replied to this demand with "LOLOLOLOLOL, NOPE." The team announced Monday's home game drew 7,000 fans, which is more likely to be referring to the fact that the 100 people pictured above literally drew 7,000 people, than that those many asses actually touched a seat.

Why is no one going to Panthers games?

Here's an Amazing Design for How Miami's New Pro Soccer Team Should Look

Categories: Sports

Despite all the David Beckham gala events, the sad truth is that Miami is about as close to hosting a new MLS team today as the Heat is to contending without LeBron. It might well happen, but you sure can't count on it.

One local fan, though, was tired of all the negativity while Becks and city leaders arm-wrestle over where to put a new soccer stadium. So he put his design talents to use to mock up what our new franchise should look like -- and damned if it hasn't gotten even the most cynical local fĂștbol fanatic worked up about the new club.

"Since they're having such a hard time right now, I decided to do this so we could talk about something positive," Diego Guevara tells Riptide. "And it completely blew up."

Rick Ross is hustling everyday. Some days he's hustling in the rap game. Others, he's hustling with his Wing Stop franchise. On a recent day, the aim of his hustle was to buy a portion of the Miami Dolphins.

In an interview with Angie Martinez of New York radio station Power 105.1, Ross disclosed that he had meet with team brass to discuss the possibility of buying a minor stake in the team.

Other celebrities, including Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Marc Anthony, Fergie and Venus and Serena Williams all bought small stakes in the team in 2009 in what many saw as a PR move to drum up excitement.

Now Ross wants in, and majority owner Stephen Ross (no relation) should absolutely should let him.

Randy Shannon Was a Better Coach Than Al Golden and Here's the Proof

Categories: Sports

The Miami Hurricanes dropped their third game of the season against Georgia Tech this past Saturday, all but assuring that the 2014-15 campaign will be just another dead-end. The frustrating loss to the Yellow Jackets has even caused some of Al Golden's most loyal supporters to reconsider their allegiances.

If these frustrations sounds familiar, they should. Just four years ago, in an eerily similar fashion, the Canes fired Randy Shannon following an upset loss to South Florida, citing bad defenses, poor development of talent, questionable play-calling. Has anything changed since then? Let's take a look at the numbers.

We Should Divide Florida Into Three New States by College Football Fandom

Categories: Sports

We here at Riptide are staunch supporters of the South Florida secessionist movement. So when the New York Times put together a map of college football team fandom based on Facebook likes across the country, most probably saw it as a welcome excuse to click on something for five minutes while their boss wasn't watching.

We saw the results in Florida as the perfect plan to divide it into three separate states.
