For generations, sports fans from South Florida and beyond have enjoyed their home teams here - no matter where their "home" may be. With representatives from every major professional sports league in town, there's sure to be a tale to be told of the fun of a home-stand in South Florida. Sports journalists are certain to find a unique angle when traveling south to cover their home team.
There's nothing like the raucous time when the Dolphins host the New York Jets, the New England Patriots - or other AFC East rivals.
The 2012 NBA world champions Miami Heat NBA franchise plays nearby in the AmericanAirlines Arena - which fills with fans from rivals like the New Jersey Nets or New York Knicks when those teams travel south.
Two-time World Series champions Miami Marlins open the 2012 season in their new, $515 million retractable-roof stadium. They're sure to raise whatever roof is on when the New York Yankees or Mets come to town.
