Here are a couple of nuggets that have next-to-nothing to do with the team's play:
- If you didn't hear, Stephen Ross quietly extended the contract of Jeff Ireland this offseason. I guess that means Ross thinks he's doing a good job?
- The team and Superbowl host committee submitted a bid to get SB 52 in Miami. You can rest assured that there will be new talk about renovating the 'clunker of a stadium' any day now.
- To the end, the team reportedly hired former Miami-Dade Mayor Alex Penelas to consult with the team. The assumption is that he will work on 'community relations' to help broker a deal in the local community. The story goes that Penelas (who was often referred to by one-time talk-show host Neil Rogers as "Mayor Pinga Pequeña") is better qualified to handle local issues than Mike Dee ever was. After all, Penelas is a local, Dee was an outsider.
