South Beach, oh South Beach. No, not the diet — one of the most fun areas in the world, according to everyone who has gone there. South Beach is all about girls, booze, drugs, and more girls, booze and drugs. I asked an acquaintance of mine about South Beach after he returned, and all he could talk about was the purest cocaine he’d ever laid eyes on. I’m not condoning that, and I have never done cocaine in my life; I’m simply trying to paint a picture of South Beach. It’s crazy, out-of-control, sins-and-lawlessness-occurring-everywhere fun.
Unfortunately, it’s also in Miami. Which is fine, unless your favorite basketball team will be playing a playoff series there. On the court, the Miami Heat are all Dwyane Wade, with an improving but nonetheless mediocre supporting cast. But, aside from Wade’s potential to drop 40 points all series long, there is also that perilous South Beach to worry about. (Boston Herald)
Already the nightlife area is being called perhaps the toughest matchup in the series beyond Wade.
“Man, South Beach isn’t just the sixth man,” cracked Marquis Daniels. “It’s like the sixth, seventh and eighth man.”
In Miami’s case, the real sixth, seventh and eighth men are Udonis Haslem, Dorrell Wright and Mario Chalmers. If Daniels is comparing South Beach to them, maybe it isn’t so bad after all.
