Jose Canseco Is Not Auctioning Off His Finger on eBay

Categories: Sports

We've been so busy feeling the schadenfreude of A-Rod, that we've almost forgotten to be embarrassed lately about the original hulking Miami-born baseball slugger: Jose Canseco.

In October Canseco accidentally blasted his own finger off while cleaning a gun in his kitchen. That appears to be true, but a few weeks ago he took to Twitter to claim that his finger had fallen off once again during a game of poker and that he planned to put it up for sale on eBay.

He's no admitted that last part was a hoax.

The Miami Marlins and their deep pockets are the story of the sports world this week, just as we all predicted.

On Monday, the Marlins formally announced they'd given All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton a 13-year, $325 million deal. It's the single most lucrative deal ever given to an an American pro athlete. This is a really real thing the Miami Marlins are doing, so literally nothing in life should ever surprise you again.

It's a great day for baseball in Miami, which has never had the strongest local support. In fact, the mega-deal may have just saved the sport in South Florida.

College Football Is Really Unpopular in Miami, According to Facebook Data

Categories: Sports

nytimemapcollegefb.jpg
Earlier this season, Facebook data already confirmed the obvious: The Miami Hurricanes are the most popular college football team in South Florida. Duh. But that was just amongst people who liked any college football on Facebook, and it didn't provide context on how big of a percentage of the local population has clicked "like" on any team's Facebook page.

Well, the New York Times is back with more data, and apparently college football is not that popular down here. Which should be obvious to anyone who has seen the attendance at Hurricanes games.

Brent Grimes is the most un-Dolphinsy Dolphins player to ever Dolphins.

Five Reasons UM-FSU Is College Football's Greatest Rivalry

The University of Miami and Florida State University face off for 59th edition of college football's greatest rivalry next weekend. Oh yeah, I went there. The greatest. There are longer-running rivalries than Miami-FSU, rivalries that include schools geographically closer than Coral Cables and Tallahasse, and rivalries that involve schools that straight-up hate each other more, but there is no rivalry that is better.

Yes, you heard me. The Miami Hurricanes versus Florida State Seminoles is the greatest college football rivalry of them all, and this is why.

NFL Wants to Send The Dolphins Back to London Next Season

The Miami Dolphins enduring popularity in England remains one of life's great mysteries. Maybe Dan Marino is one of the few NFL players they can name. Maybe they really like our colors. Maybe Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is a huge cult favorite over there.

Whatever the case, the Dolphins win against Oakland in Wembley Stadium in Week 4 was such a success that the NFL is eager to ship the team over there again next season.

A-Rod to Feds: Yes, I Bought Steroids From Biogenesis

Categories: Crime, Sports

In January 2013, here's how Alex Rodriguez reacted to a Miami New Times exposé that a Coral Gables clinic had been selling him steroids for years: "Alex Rodriguez was not Mr. Bosch's patient," he said in a statement, "he was never treated by him and he was never advised by him."

That's been A-Rod's story for the past 22 months, from the tumultuous aftermath of that investigation through a knockdown fight with MLB over a record drug suspension. But when the Yankees star finally went under oath to talk to the feds earlier this year, he changed his tune.

In a 15-page tell-all, A-Rod at last admitted everything: It was all true. He'd been buying steroids from Bosch for years -- and then lying to public and MLB officials about it for months.

There's not much in his confession that hasn't already been reported. But the pure cynicism of A-Rod openly lying about so much of his role in Biogenesis is sure to be the last nail in the coffin of whatever public goodwill the slugger had left.
