Big Five teams. Two votes. Let's go! (with poll); plus Lin-sanity is overreaction to Jeremy Lin, Yoenis Cespedes, SI swimsuit cover, Nevin Shapiro, 18-foot LeBron & more

1aa1valentine 1aa1dolphval1) Hope y'all had a happy Valentine's Day! 2) R.I.P. former Dolphins receiver Freddie Solomon, gone at 59 from cancer. 3) Randy Moss to Dolphins -- can we not go there please!? Gawd. 4) Recently passed 5,000 Twitter followers. Thanks. Now within 17,361,000 of Justin Bieber. Look out, Biebs. Join us @gregcote.

ARE THESE THE NEW GOOD-OLD-DAYS FOR MIAMI SPORTS?: Today's column by me (click on Turning  A Corner to read) posits that this -- now into spring and early summer -- is the most interesting time we 1aa1goodolddayshave seen as South Florida sports fans in terms of what is going on collectively with all our biggest teams. Consider that all of these things are somewhere between likely and very plausible: Dolphins signing Peyton Manning. Heat winning the NBA title. Marlins being a playoff team. Panthers winning their first playoff series since 1996. And, just beyond all that, Hurricanes football, despite the unknown of possible NCAA penalties, parlaying a highly touted recruiting class to a return to 1aa1math25national prominence. In the column I mention a bunch of other good stuff happening, including the No. 6-ranked UM women's basketball team being a legit national-title contender. But for the purpose of this poll let's limit it to our Big Five teams. Which TWO of the five poll statements on the horizon do you think are most likely to come true next? And why? As always (for what it's worth), not asking what you most hope happens but what you honestly think will.

MARLINS LOSE YOENIS CESPEDES TO A'S: It seemed a no-brainer that Cuban-defector outfielder and slugger Yoenis Cespedes would end up a Marlin, but he signed today with the Oakland A's. It apparently came down to money. He agreed to a four-year $36 million deal with Oakland. Am told Miami's offer topped out at $8 million per year. Cespedes had said outright he'd like to play here, and the Marlins were envisioning marketing gold, but it came down to Cespedes exercising his newfound freedom to embrace capitalism for all it's worth. Cannot blame the Marlins for what seemed a fair offer. Plenty of potential in Cespedes, but not enough proof to go higher on the $$$. Oh, and that big exhale of relief you just heard was Emilio Bonifacio hanging onto the Marlins' starting center field job for now.

It's Showtime for Marlins, anyway: No Yoenis? No problem. Showtime made official today the Marlins will star in season 2 of the network's MLB reality TV series, The Franchise. With Ozzie Guillen, a new stadium, Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Mike Stanton, Josh Johnson, Carlos Zambrano and Logan Morrison leading the zoo, the Marlins were a natural.

IT'S SHEER LIN-SANITY!: I barely know of Jeremy Lin and already I'm tired of him. Check that. I'm tired of the instant, predictable and typically premature phenom-enization of him by Your Friend the Media. I 1aa1jlinget why Knicks fans and the NY tabloid back-page headline writers are breathless over an out-of-nowhere point guard who has scored 109 points in his first four starts. Neat little story. Fun. The Lin-sanity isn't that the Knickdom is abuzz; the Lin-sanity is that he has, by media decree, become a national wonder for a week's work (and, by the way, for four games of the type we see this season from LeBron James so routinely we barely pay them notice). You know that if Le Batard devotes a Sunday column to a subject it must have gravitas and demand far-reaching perspective, so I guess that's where we are with Lin. We saw the same rush to phenom-hood with Tim Tebow. Lets see if Tebow is even starting, let alone, starring, a month into next Broncos season. And let's see if Lin is still earning gaping, awe-struck adoration or more likely has settled back down to who he is even 10 days from now, when the Knicks visit Miami Feb. 23.

1aa1kateuKATE UPTON, RIGHT HERE: Call it my valentine to the fellas. Here in all its glory is the cover of the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue featuring superdupermodel Kate Upton. I have seen skimpier swimsuits, but only in my dreams. I decry the annual swimsuit issue for its sexist nature. OK not really.

1aa1lebron18HEY IT'S AN 18-FOOT-TALL LEBRON JAMES!: A locally based company has created an 18-foot LeBron James statue, because they could. Pictured is a facial closeup of the mega-Bron. Click on LeBron At 18 for the YouTube vid that explains it all and shows the finished statue.

LeBron and the heckler: Click here for a story about a LeBron exchange with a heckler at the recent Wizards game up there. If this is accurate, the fan started it with an over-the-line comment and James had a right to respond. Better he ignored it, but human nature kicks in sometimes.

NO MORE PLATFORM FOR NEVIN SHAPIRO, PLEASE: Nevin Shapiro, the convicted Ponzi schemer, disgraced ex-UM booster and all-round two-legged sac of scum, was given a forum in Sunday's Miami Herald to threaten and rant yet again against the Hurricanes from his prison cell. ENOUGH, PLEASE! Dear fellow media: Not everything this deranged person utters is newsworthy. Giving a soapbox and voice to Shapiro is an affront. He should be excommunicated and left to rant to no one but his cell mate, who UM fans and victims of his mass swindling can only hope is a randy and immensely flatulent 400-pound biker with anger issues.

1aa1dukejTake that, Nevin: UM's recent top-10 recruiting class was a direct defeat of Shapiro, and RB Duke Johnson personified players who believed in the Canes and their immediate future. Sports Illustrated has a nice piece on Johnson and that belief. Click here to read. Johnson is pictured in his custom-designed UM cap.

ON GRAMMYS, ADELE, WHITNEY: Enjoyed the Grammys last night, especially live performances by Bruce Springsteen, Adele, (too little of) the reunited Beach Boys, and the moving segment with Glen 1aa1adeleCampbell. I loved Adele's deserving sweep of six awards because she is so refreshing: the Anti-Diva. She does not require ridiculous clothes/persona like Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga. She does not require blue hair or bombastic stage pyrotechnics like Katy Perry. She does not require contrived controversy or pandering to over-the-top sex appeal. Adele is a singer. She sings. Bravo! The various tributes to Whitney Houston were a bit much for me but probably obligatory. I was not a big fan -- I discovered her only song in my iPod is the never-listened-to "Didn't We Almost Have It All" -- but I respect how her death has seemed to impact so many.

JULIE DURDA FAN CLUB: I rarely if ever watch televised weather, which I find unnecessary 99 percent of the time, but it came to my attention today that WSVN-Channel 7 has a weather person, 1aa1julied2 1aa1julied3Julie Durda, who merits designation as The Official Weathercaster of This Blog. Durda (pictured) is a former 49ers cheerleader who is (how to put this) comfortable flaunting a rather stunning profile. Can rock an angora sweater, is what I mean. Call me sexist, but this morning I found myself enjoying Durda's weathercast without hearing a word she was saying. She could have been reporting a meteor was bearing down on Greg's Cote house, but Greg Cote wasn't listening because he was transfixed playing the internal men's parlor game, Fake or Real. If I found myself wishing for the onslaught of a Category 5 hurricane solely to increase Julie's air time, would that be wrong?

1aa1heavyDEAR GREG...: "Your blog's OK but would be immeasurably better if occasionally you would run a photo of the world's heaviest woman, 643-pound Californian Pauline Potter. Thank you." Dear Reader: I would but I am concerned people would misconstrue that as my making fun of her, which of course I would not be at all!

Weather person? Isn't this a sports blog?

Greg, I predict storm clouds from tropical storm WIFE.

Jeremy Lin is the real deal, Greg. Like Tebow, he has had to prove himself against typical detractors.

In sports, as in life, possessing heart, relentless perseverance, and a burning desire to succeed is far more important than any "image" of what a good player is supposed to look like.

GOLDEN PANTHERS ON THE RISE

Mr. Cote, your Whitney Houston comments are interesting in light of your adoration of Adele. I believe those many tributes you saw for Whitney Houston was for the same reason you seem to appreciate Adele. Whitney Houston was also a SINGER. No stage theatrics. She just sang like an angel. I'm sure the angels will appreciate Whitney's place in heaven.

Marlins losing Cespedes is NOT that big of a deal...

Cote, THE HOTTEST weather girl in Miami is none other than Jackie Guerrido, hands down.

http://s2.guyism.com/up/Jackie-Guerrido-10.jpg

Lin- Sanity is a good feel story, hope the kid makes big, But I still hate the Knoicks...

Here's another way of looking at this Jeremy Lin "phenom-enization." By-way-of analogy, the point guard position is like fuel to a vehicle. You can have powerful dunkers (monster trucks), precise sharp shooters (sports cars), a deep bench (cargo room), but unless you have gas the vehicle is going nowhere.

Lin is pure fuel, as is CP3, Nash and, less than a hand full others. The Nicks won the lottery with him.

UH OH. I just watched Julie Durda's weather report and she failed to mention the high pressure front developing in my pants.

Cote,

For once I agree with you on this cat Shapiro , this little piece of "mierda" does not deserve his name in the spot light.

You gringos need to have a look-sie at Jackie.

Check out my latest article on this at www.miamisportsminute.wordpress.com

South Florida's hottest new sports blog.

With multiple sources now confirming, it appears that what had seemed a marriage made in heaven will not even have the chance for a messy divorce; the Miami Marlins have been left standing at the altar, while coveted free agent Yoenis Cespedes signs a four year, $36 million contract with the Oakland Athletics. All signs had been pointing to the Cuban import making Little Havana his home, especially as his one and only stop during a brief US visit last week was the Marlins’ new ballpark. The fact that Cespedes did indeed end up signing elsewhere begs many questions, but in the end, two in particular jump to the fore. Did the Marlins truly want Cespedes, and if so, can they simply shrug off the loss and remain just as confident that they’ve turned enough heads to head into Spring Training standing pat? Go to site for more....

Lin is the little Honda in the far left lane going 35 MPH with the left blinker on.

Kazaam,

You probably haven't seen how he is almost single handedly dismantling every team the Knicks are playing. btw, Lin is anything but a little Honda, at 6'-3" most "little" PGs cannot match up. After three quarters the Lakers had to put 6'-7" Matt Barnes on him.

If Jeremy Lin is, as you say, a little Honda, does that make Drazen Petrovic a little Yugo?

I saw the Lakers game, dude strikes me as a Brandon Jennings flash in the pan type.

Great passer but he made an awful lot of jump shots and floaters - impressive but usually not sustainable. Don't see him being able to contribute much with Carmelo Anthony on the floor either.

In fact I'm going to change my insult and say that any given night he could serve up a healthy heaping of points but later on he's going to leave the Knicks hungry.

Actually I'm going to go with - his court vision is decent but he has a small dick.

Kazaam,

Jason Whitlock had to apologize to Lin-Lin for a similar remark, I think you should apologize too.

according to the experts, asian men do have small "pinguitas"...if you know what I mean.

Here is the lastest mock draft , Dolphins taking Coples from NC..

Tannehill going in the first to the Browns with pick 22.

I heard that before she was a 49ers whoreleader, JULIE DURDA was a hooker working several corners in the Castro district in San Fran.

Cumslut

Looks like Pauline Potter could play nose tackle.

There's a thought! Why not field four 650 pounders like Pauline to play D-line. At the snap of the ball they would all plop down, making it impossible for any OTs to block open any holes. All running plays would have to go around that mass sitting on the middle of the field. It - could - work!

btw, Greg. What's with all the "fat" pics? First you put on some fat Sumo baby and now this! This is not a result of you smoking a fatty, would it?

Couldn't agree with you more, OC. Perseverance and determination are omnipotent in life.

Couldn't disagree more, perserverence and determination are good but gumption and sticktuitiveness are the most important banal platitudes in life.

Go play in traffic, Zhazam.

Woodcock, not everyone was lucky to be born rich.

Should it be OK to shoot a skunk ape? By obtaining a specimen you could rally support to protect their fragile habitats. On the other hand if they are scattered in small clans in the wilderness killing just one might hurt their chances for survival.

A) Yes. Yetis are godless killing machines.
B) No. The gentle sasquatch is a critically endangered killing machine.
C) Sometimes/net gun.
D) Florida rules - you can shoot a big foot in 'self defense', if it's on your property or if it's new years eve.
E) There is more to be gained from one of us infiltrating skunk ape society than from bringing one to us, it's your duty to try to follow it back to the clan.

All of the sudden I have a craving for egg rolls.

Kate Upton = thumbs up (it seems like she is naturally endowed). 5'10. Seems like one of the best choices in years by SI. None of this Giselle stuff

Julie Durda = pretty, but those look fake, at least in that photo


There are weather babes in practically every country of the world. Everywhere I go, I turn on the news and voila..hot weather girl. Russia even had "the Naked News" where women strip as they gice the news. I think they started it and other countries followed.


Just read that Freddy Solomon died today. The big "C" took him away at age 59. Damn!

Always liked Freddy, even though he only with the Dolphins for three years before moving on to SF.

Pat Benatar was / is also a pure singer...with some rock n roll added provided by the talented husband Neil Geraldo and Myron Grombacher the drummer.
Trained in opera; decided to go rock n roll. what a powerful voice from that tiny girl.

She also has a normal marriage/family with Neil. Normal for a celebrity that is.

The curious thing is using her first husband's name David "Benatar" as her stage name. Wonder what it felt like to be him.

What about Judith Durham (born Judith Cock ..yes, not kidding) from the original The Seekers, still going strong?

Grace Slick.

Mariska Veres

Vicky Leandros

Wondered why we traded Freddie Solomon. Pretty good receiver and kick returner. As a youngster, I always hated seeing Phins players show up on other teams. I wasn't an avid follower of draft/trade season unless it was a major star. ..like Csonka/Kiick/Warfield leaving.

Freddy was one of those guys who cared about his community. One of the good guys.

Well, looks like most everyone has gone off to dreamland. I guess I'll post a few of my music favs:

Greg Cote just wrote an article talking about how great South Florida sports is, and mentions several different sporting teams and events, even mentions horse racing @ Gulfstream, cricket and sailing, and doesn't even make a single mention about FIU.
http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/02/13/2 ... -full.html

NOT. ONE. SINGLE. ACKNOWLEDGMENT.

This is UNACCEPTABLE!

WE MUST ALL CONTACT HERALD IMMEDIATELY, and we must also CONTACT FIU IMMEDIATELY. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH... and frankly some of it is FIU's fault for not doing whatever is necessary to prevent this disgraceful shiz from happening.

que paso con el chino ?

Listen up lads..

Don't want P Manning

Don't want Randy Moss

I DO want kate Upton

I don't want Matt Flynn ( but I think is going to happen )

I DO want RG III but don't wanna pay the price to get him plus I think R Tannehill will be very good.

I don't want a date with Pauline Potter.

I do want a RG for the Dolphins is Free Agency

that about covers it.

FZB,

Should your post be read to the tune of Sam Cooke's - Wonderful World?

Since today is Valentin'e day...

I DO want to get laid tonight but don't like my chances, Mrs FZB says since we are grandparents now we can't do the nasty anymore.

being loco is just a state of mind, I'm told.

I want the Dolphins to win ten games next year

I want Beli-Cheat to go loco

Belichick finished that Pro Am by coming in 3rd. I thought I saw him reach down and grab a red flag from his socks, then throw it after a marshall gave him a two stroke penalty for grounding his club in a bunker.

"Lets see if Tebow is even starting, let alone, starring, a month into next Broncos season."
that's what YOU/they said last season. Tebow won't be drafted in 1st round: CHECK. Tebow won't start a game: CHECK. Tebow won't win: CHECK. Tebow won't win in the playoffs: AND CHECK! Now, you stupid idiot, question it again: CHECK. Lin is awesome...just enjoy it. All you hack sports writers do is worry about tomorrow and the day after. Just enjoy the ride for now Cotex!

Can I get a better owner?

Wow, you are really, really funny kazaam.
Do you make up funny stuff like that about blacks too?

Whats up Cote, a fat picture of a women, how about Michelle Obama. now there is a fat women.

Jimbo, I think OC gave you hollowpoints soldier.

Your columns are so truly random that I want to put my head down and rest after I try to read them. Adele? Pauline Potter? Oh, yes, they have a lot to do with sports.

Your kingdom for an editor.

OC,

Can you draw a monkey for you know who ?.Don't want the liberals on this blog to call me a racist.

The Heater's are up by 29 pts at the half, damn impressive considering this is their third game in as many days and their six in the last eight days.


Love it, anyone who's not a racist is a liberal. Couldn't have said it better myself.

FIU could make a BCS bowl, with an easy schedule, and a dynamic senior led defense going undefeated is possible.

Mike Hunt baby sweetheart nice to see you back...

David,

What I was saying ( and you know it ) is, if I called Obama " monkey in the middle " like that liberal bitch reporter that called Bush on television " the monkey in the middle " I would immediately be called a racist by the liberals on the blog.


er, when you call Bush a monkey the joke is he's stupid. when you call Obama a monkey the joke is that he's part of a lesser race closely related to monkeys.

?same thing though right¿

Jeremy Lin scores 27 tonite including a game winning 3 pointer with less than a second remaining.

To all those who are trashing this kid and attempting to diminish his contribution to the Knicks please us a favor and STFU. You don't see it (i.e., you are either dumb or blind), but the truth is the kid can flat out play basketball.

Today TCM had a Sophia Loren & Eleonora Brown movie "Two Women" (1960) which I hadn't seen in 3 decades. Italian made with English subtitles. TCM gave it 4 stars.

It was the first film I saw that that I learned the deep rooted horrors of war, even before I had seen the 1950's "Kanal" , "Sophie's Choice" and "All Quiet on the Western Front (1930).

Linkin Park's "Numb" is one of the few modern era English language songs I like.

Another one, which is now 10 yrs old is Kylie Minogue's "Cant Get You Out of My Head". .great sound.

Atomic Kitten's copy of Blondie's copy of The Paragon's "The Tider is High" has a good sound and beat to it.

And believe it or not..the first Britney Spears tune I like "Three". I never liked her songs and never liked another one, but that one was catchy.

But nowadays I have to go foreign to find tunes I like and excellent artistic music videos. Brathanki is one group with a number of good tunes; though they've gone downhill since their lead singer left.

It helps travelling around Europe and watching their versions of MTV Channel. You catch stuff that you never hear here.

Heck, in Egypt,(before thr troubles) I was constantly hearing great tunes on TV and on the radio during taxi rides. I wish I could find them again.
