Last month, we told you about a listener to a local sports radio program who released an excellent Miami Heat parody song called So Rude (Riley Ain't Scared). Now, the Zaslow and Joy show on the Ticket Miami is soliciting Miami Dolphins parody songs in exchange for tickets, and the same fan has delivered once again.

Known on Twitter as @itsleooo and on SoundCloud as Wolf Coat, the listener submitted a remake to Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven," called "9 and 7."

David Beckham's group of investors looking for a South Florida stadium for their MLS club have reportedly turned down Broward County.

This, according to a report by Gossip Extra. The gossip site says a source tells them Beckham is citing Broward's poor history for soccer clubs and low attendance to Panthers games as the main reason.

However, Broward officials and one of the main groups working on a stadium proposal for Beckham claim they've not heard from the investment group, and that all this is news to them.

Five Reasons You Need To Be Watching the Miami Marlins Nightly

Your little baseball team might not make the playoffs, but they're worth watching

This exact time last year, the Miami Marlins found themselves in last place (49-81) in the NL East, having been outscored by 110 runs, which was the second worst run differential in the sport.

This year?

The Fish already have 65 wins, they've only been outscored by 22 runs on the year and the good guys (minus rat fink owner Jeffrey Loria) are just four games out of a playoff spot with 31 games left to play. The math still points toward missing the playoffs -- Baseball Prospectus simulates the season every day, creating postseason probability percentages, and the Marlins still have only a 4.7 percent shot of making it -- but if you aren't already, you need to be watching the club every night.

There's long balls, unhinged announcers and excited players you haven't seen since you stopped watching when Jose Reyes and Hanley Ramirez departed. Alas, here are our five reasons you need to start tuning in again.

Giancarlo Stanton Makes It Clear Marlins Need to Build Better

Don't get too attached, kid.
Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is pretty much having the best season of any other player in the National League (and probably all of baseball). As a result, the Marlins are shockingly in the hunt for a Wildcard spot.

As any Marlins fan can attest to, this is a rare thing indeed. But Stanton has made it clear that, just because this has so far been a fun season with the team playing meaningful baseball going into September doesn't mean he hasn't forgotten that the Marlins higher-ups run the team like a banana stand.

Six Reasons Dan Marino Being Hired by the Miami Dolphins Is Great News

The big news over the weekend was that the Miami Dolphins have finally gone ahead and hired Hall of Fame quarterback and all-time Dolphin icon Dan Marino to a front-office job.

The actual title of the job is "special advisor." And while that can literally mean just about anything, all indications seem to be pointing to Marino being a figure head for ticket sales and community service -- not unlike what Alonzo Mourning does for the Miami Heat.

However, Marino will definitely serve as an adviser to owner Stephen Ross on football matters, which is the most important part of this whole endeavor. Because, up to this point, Ross has run the organization pretty much exactly like a couple of monkeys and a yo-yo would.

And, while back in February we personally advised Marino not to take any job with the Dolphins, we're kind of coming around on the idea.

And here are six reasons why:

Ray Allen was decidedly unhappy about how the Coral Gables Police Department handled seven teens who broke into his home in the middle of the night.

But after meeting with the Florida State Attorney's Office, authorities have charged all seven teens with first-degree misdemeanor trespassing of an occupied structure.

"Ray and Shannon have been advised that the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office has filed trespass charges against the seven intruders to their home," attorney Gregory Victor said via a statement. "The determination as to what specific charges to file was entirely within the discretion of the State Attorney's Office and the Allens are satisfied with both the decision to prosecute and the charges being pursued."

Through the statement, the Allens expressed satisfaction and gratitude that no one was hurt.

After being named for a prison accused of human rights violations and after almost being named for an apparent homophobic fast-food restaurant, the Florida Atlantic University football field is finally getting a name that everyone will love and isn't a total lapse into bad taste.

FAU announced Wednesday that the football field where the Owls play their home games will be named after former FAU head coach and University of Miami legend Howard Schnellenberger.

Ray Allen blasted Coral Gables Police for the way they handled his home being broken into last week.

Last Thursday, a group of teens walked into Allen's home in the middle of the night while his wife and children were asleep. Allen was not home at the time.

According to police, the teens did not steal anything, and the entire break-in is being called a prank. No one was arrested or charged.

And for that, Allen is peeved.

Eight Types of Miami Dolphins Fans

The Miami Dolphins are well into the preseason, facing off against the Buccaneers in Tampa on Saturday night. And that means football season is in full swing.

And while kickoff is still a couple of weeks off, people are either excited, not excited, or just don't give a crap that the Dolphins are about to begin the first season of the post-Jeff Ireland era and the second season under Joe Philbin.

So while there have been some changes here (new GM, new offensive coordinator) and there (no more Richie Incognito or Jonathan Martin), one constant remains true: Dolphins fans are an eclectic bunch made of wacky characters, fanatics, and the aforementioned people who don't give a crap.

It's unlike any other NFL fan base, really. So, it must be broken down into categories.

Here now are the eight types of Miami Dolphins fans. Play along and see which you might fall under. Winning prize: a 7-9 season and an offensive lineman taken in the first round of next year's draft!

A group of teenagers may have just single-handedly ruined the chances of the Miami Heat getting Ray Allen back after they broke into his home in the middle of the night, while his wife and children were sleeping.

According to police, the break-in happened Thursday morning around 2:30 at the Allens' mansion on Tahiti Beach Island Road in Coral Gables.

Nothing was stolen, and it appears that the teens wanted to break in simply to have a look at the Miami Heat star's house. But they were chased off when Allen's wife, Shannon, woke up and began screaming at them.
