South Beach Diaries: Day 0

In this Sunday, this is very tough, in this Sunday I'm going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat.

No, I'm not taking a new job, or moving. It's just for a week. I've been planning this vacation since the NBA schedule came out, and I'll be going to Heat games on Sunday (Bulls), Tuesday (Blazers), Thursday (Lakers) and Saturday (Grizzlies). I kind of wish I'd extended the trip to the following Wednesday to catch the Spurs and Thunder too, but I have to get back to work at some point.

And in case there's any confusion as to WHY I'm going to Miami -- well, technically Weston, FL, where my hotel is -- for a week, just take a look at the picture above. This is a LeBron trip.

I don't really have any plans on my non-Heat game days, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. Maybe I'll just sit poolside at the hotel and enjoy the fact that it's going to be 80 degrees and sunny pretty much every day, and there aren't massive piles of snow on the ground.
