Last chance to vote! Dolphins Mount Rushmore coming Monday morning...

DOLPHINS' MOUNT RUSHMORE: WHO ARE THE ULTIMATE BIG 4?: Got this idea from The Herald's ongoing vote to select the 25 greatest figures in Heat history marking the club's 25th anniversary. From that vote 1aa1mountrwe can say the top four in order will be Pat Riley, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Alonzo Mourning. I cannot argue. I think selecting the Dolphins' top four will be tougher. Not the big two; I think those are pretty clear. But three and four? Hmm. You decide. As the draft nears, the timing seems fair. I won't burden you with six dozen choices. I have winnowed it -- somehow -- to a top 10. There were obviously some very tough omissions, including some Hall of Famers. I lamented excluding the likes of Paul Warfield, Larry Little, Jake Scott and even Ricky Williams from the ballot, but just couldn't picture them getting up onto our mountain. If you feel any of my omissiones are that egregious then cast one of your votes for "sombody else" and let us know who it is. Remember, though, we're looking for better than "all-time greatest." We want Mount Rushmore. Top four. Period. Vote and say why.

REMEMBER: VOTE FOR FOUR (4)!

HEAT'S PRETTY DECENT CONSOLATION RECORD: They didn't get the record 34 wins in a row, but last night the Heat got a club-record 62nd season win. Not a bad consolation prize. Oh, yeah. Almost forgot. They also secured home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, meaning the championship goes through Miami. Have a feeling it'll go through here and stay here.

Poll result: Support for Dolphins stadium improvements (with a caveat): We asked in the previous blogpost (you may still vote) if you support the upcoming planned referendum on devoting tax dollars for Dolphins stadium improvement and 66.4 percent said yes. It was 30.7 % no and 2.9% undecided. The caveat? Our blog skews toward Dolphins fan. The county-wide vote is sure to be closer.
