We'll Fix Your Bandwagon

As the Miami Heat’s recently concluded best season ever amply demonstrated, this city's sports fans have only one mode of transportation: bandwagon. Sunshine fans in the Sunshine State. If our team loses a few, we disown it. It wins, we break out our T-shirts and pennants and pose about how we've always been dedicated. Hard to fault the Marlins for considering a move to San Antonio. And hard to fault the Marlins’ play of late, though we've been faulting them -- without abandoning them -- all season. In a recent interleague series, the Fish swept Toronto, and, when this item went to press, the cellar-dwelling Marlins were only three and a half games out of second place (yes, the NL East does suck, but still ...). Junior-league powerhouse Boston comes to town for another interleague matchup, Friday at 7:35 p.m., tonight at 6:05, and tomorrow at 1:05. Brace yourself -- the Marlins might not win all the games. Tickets range from $6 to $90. Dolphin Stadium is located at 2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami. Call 1-877-MARLINS, or visit florida.marlins.mlb.com.
