Are you awake? Probably not.

There's something inexplicably sexy about sweaty men, especially the men of the Miami Heat. Just look at the way they run across the basketball court at the AAA with perspiration slowly dripping down their chiseled biceps, how aggressively they fight for the ball, and how smoothly they score. Mayb ... More >>
While the rest of Miami -- and the nation for that matter -- was wondering whether the Heat would finally show the Spurs who's boss during overtime Tuesday night, all we could think about was where we could find a massive slice of fudge cake or pint of cookie-dough ice cream.

Alright, so the Miami may have lost to the San Antonio last night. But there's still no denying that LeBron, D-Wade, Bosh, Birdman, Miller, and all the über-talented ballers that make up el Heat are better than Parker, Duncan, Ginóbili, and the rest of those goofs from the Spurs. And if there's o ... More >>

The good news is the Miami Heat took advantage of a little known NBA rule that states you can only lose once a night.
