    I think the Cavs did this to.

    Hmmm. Another career change? I don't like the Marlins. I do like Florida.

    I'd be willing to pack on another 50 pounds and move to Florida to be a Manatee. How much does the gig pay?

    And the new stadium on the old Orange Bowl site is a go, Moddy. This could be the start of a great career for you. :D

    Yeah, man. I knew this gut would come in handy one day.

    I would have to lose weight to qualify for this group. Just stick a fork in me. Literally, you might get something good — probably ranch dressing.

    This is something Mark Cuban started with the Mavs. Other teams have been copying the concept over the last few years.

    I think I'll stick with trying out for the Hogettes. :p

    I've seen these idiots before. So lame.

    I love the name Manatees, though.

    As an aside, I remember when the Pacers' dance team, the Pacemates, first brought a male dancer on board. Poor sumbitch got eaten alive in Fort Wayne one night at an exhibition game.
