Since the day I recognized there was a discernible difference between a cool car and my Mom’s station wagon, I’ve admired the Porsche 911. As I matured and my peers dreamed of Ferraris, DeLoreans and Lambos, my attention held fast to arguably Deutchland’s greatest export. I’d often dream of someday being rich enough to buy one of of my own.
About a year ago, I started perusing the web for classic cars and every couple weeks I find myself on eBay or similar sites looking for a perfect buy. I’m drawn to the 1978-1983 911 SC model. It’s probably the model I first saw as a kid on Miami Vice or something.
In my search for a classic Porsche 911 SC, I’ve gone as far as emailing a seller and in hindsight the deal was one I should have taken. I haven’t seen a similar 911SC for anything near the price of that one. I’ve also actually bid on a few through eBay, but each time it appears I’m up against some sort of bidding-bot because seconds after I place my bid, I’m told I’ve been outbid.
So when I’m in need of a little pick me up, I turn to the web and search for Porsche 911 videos. I came across this one a few months back. Enjoy.
The University of Miami men’s basketball team reached the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Div 1 championships last evening – making history and having fun the whole way. The canes overcame a talented Illinois team in a close game that had multiple lead changes and significant swings in momentum.
Through it all, Coach Larrañaga managed to help this team keep its poise and earn a University of Miami first – a trip to the Sweet 16!!
During an on-court interview with Shane Larkin following the game, Senior power forward, Julian Gamble, did a little national-TV level Photobombing to the delight of the Rubinoff clan.
Back in the lockeroom – the TV cameras got a unique look into the culture that permeates this Hurricanes squad…
Miami Florida’s second team, the FIU Golden Panters, have a history of stunts in the hopes of earning respect. Leave it to the little guy with a chip on his shoulder to pick the start of March Madness to attempt to steal a little attention away from Miami’s real team – the University of Miami Hurricanes.
Ole Miss guard, Marshall Henderson, mocked the University of Florida faithful with his rendition of the Gator Chomp after sinking a 3 pointer in his team’s win over the Gators in the 2013 SEC Men’s Basketball championship game.
I urge all University of Miami fans to adopt him as one of our own – for anyone who can mock the Gators like this deserves canes admiration.
