The Miami Heat Are Doomed: Five Disasters That Could Torpedo This Season

The Miami Heat is back in your living room tomorrow night for the season opener, looking a tad different from past years but just as cocky. Slogans, campaigns, videos -- you name it; the team wants you to know it isn't going anywhere. This is still the Miami Heat, and it competes for an NBA championship every single year. However, this year there is less room for error thanks to a gaping, LeBron James-sized hole on the roster.

So what disasters could derail the Heat from competing with the likes of the new and improved Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards, and the rest of the East?

World's Greatest Pigeon Refused to Leave the Field During Dolphins Game

The Miami Dolphins beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-13 on Sunday, but it was a pigeon that trended worldwide on Twitter. Wait, what? Yup a pigeon. A pigeon that by the end of the game had it's own Twitter account. What a world.

During the second half of the game a pigeon flew his happy ass down onto the field and never left, he even ran down on a kickoff at one point, and barely alluded Lamar Miller on a long run. Pigeon ain't care, pigeon gotta eat. Not even the Jaguars over-sized stuffed animal mascot sneaking up on him could scare Jacksonville pigeon. Nope, dude looked over and said, "Try me."

This is not a joke about Juwan Howard. Promise.

Illuminada Magtoto was facing her 90th birthday earlier this month and she realized she had one item left on her bucket list: playing one-on-one against Dwyane Wade. So she uploaded a plea on YouTube.

Twitter Has Mapped Dolphins Nation and It Is Not Very Big

Categories: Sports

Behold above. This is Dolphins Nation.

It is not very big. In the map, the shaded counties are places where the Dolphins are amongst the top three teams -- but in most of those spots out of South Florida, that share is very small.

That's according to Twitter anyway. The site used its data to find the most followed NFL team in each county in America.

Amazingly enough, it's already almost time to turn your attention to what's happening down on Biscayne Boulevard, as your new-look, less-hyped Miami Heat returns a week from today, looking to prove to the world that its world does not revolve around one man.

The Heat still has the same goal -- championship or bust. Can the Heat actually contend without LeBron? Sure, if a few things fall into place.

Is Ryan Tannehill Actually Good? Quarterback Rolls As Fins Crush Bears

It's always nice when the good Dolphins show up. Most important, good Ryan Tannehill. Good Ryan Tannehill showed up Sunday.

Tannehill was laser-accurate, completing 25 of 32 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns in a better-than-the-score-indicates-yet-still-booty-clenching-at-times 27-14 Miami Dolphins victory.

Tannehill didn't do anything overly explosive in the game. Nothing that will make SportsCenter. No late-game comebacks or drama. Just damn good QB play from the Dolphins signal caller. For a week at least, the temperature of Tannehill and his coaches' seat will turn down from hot to warm.

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.

Coach Suspended for Using Coffin Parade as Intimidation Technique During Youth Football Game

Categories: Sports

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

Categories: Sports

@Local10Sports
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?
