Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

in Bloomington. With his hiring, South Beach Hoosier's prediction
-and wish- came true!
Now, we can finally get back to the IU tradition: an emphasis on
playing smart, playing hard, playing as a team -and winning with class.
And graduating!
No more one-and-done recruits!

"In the Heart of a Great Country, Beats the Soul of Hoosier Nation." -South Beach Hoosier, 2007

Those of you who have written, called or wondered
when I was FINALLY going to be writing something
about Isiah being hired as head coach at FIU, and
the Miami media's tempest-in-a-teapot over his hiring,
should know that something was already written weeks
ago on him and the over-the-top media coverage,
where lots of usually sober TV and print reporters
were sloppy with facts and heavy with insinuations
in ways that you rarely see on local news coverage
-even in Miami!

It's in cold storage right now, waiting for the right time
to bring it out, a day that is fast approaching.

Me in the Summer of 2016

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
