We here at the South Beach Beat pride ourselves on delivering you the most up-to-date Miami sports news. This is why we must admit that we have not delivered as of late. For the entire existence of the blog we have been covering Miami's three major sports teams; the Dolphins, Heats and Mariners. After some reader tips though we have just become aware of the existence of a fourth pro sports team! Who knew? Not us sadly, but that's all about to change. Today marks the beginning of SBB coverage of your Florida Panthers! Read on.
I know, I know, we've done like a billion Dolphins articles on this site, but this is the 63rd-to-last one. It's about how our beloved dolphins landed some good players for once! Don't act like you're not impressed, you like good players better than terrible ones. We're Miami, we only watch when there are good players. So read on, but only if you're a huge Dolphins fan. We don't have much patience for bandwagon fans here in Miami.
Our Miami Heat solidified themselves as the very best in the East on Monday with a win over the Raptors. The Raptors couldn't handle LeBron or beautiful South Beach and will return to cold and dreary Canada with another loss. Meanwhile, Miami fans can bathe in the glory that is the Heat. With the Pacers losing to San Antonio, LeBron James (51-22) moved into 1st place in the conference.
See that alliteration in the title? That's some fine writing you done did dere Dan. Anyway, this isn't an article praising my highly skilled writing. Nor is it about draft prospects from some random city, like oh, I don't know, Philadelphia or something. This is about our beloved Miami Dolphins and how this is the year we finally get back to the playoffs.
Travis Zajac scored his first career hat trick at the expense of our beloved Panthers tonight. The first goal came only 12 seconds in, and the second 11 minutes later on the power play. Zajac's first 2 goals bookended a Jaromir Jagr goal and put the Devils up 3-0 halfway into the first.
The Cats wouldn't go down easy though. Dmitry Kulikov scored his 8th goal of the year on a short handed attempt with 2:38 left in the first. He beat Brodeur after receiving a nice feed from Nick Bjugstad.
Like this was any surprise. The Marlins lit up Rockies pitching like the home run sculpture in center field on a Giancarlo Stanton home run, as they dominated Colorado 10-1.
Jose Fernandez (future 12-time Cy Young and MVP Award winner) took the mound for the fish, tossing six spectacular innings of one-run ball, while making nine batters look like absolute fools as he set them down on strikes.
You shouldn't have came if you didn't think you were gonna like it.
