#FishStripes: Miami Love

While the Marlins aren't necessarily finding themselves on the winning side, our NBA brethren won their first title in 2006. There's no such thing as giving a team too much love.

Our Tweet(s) of the Week comes from none other than Logan Morrison and Emilio Bonifacio, giving their props to the Heat:

Here's Emilio giving some love:

While we've mentioned LoMo, here's an event to attend on behalf of Morrison:

Our Play of the Week comes from Justin Ruggiano, who made this amazing catch:

Brett Hayes believes in the Ruggiano leap:

Hayes also gives advice to those in Miami today:

It wasn't just Marlins players who wanted to congratulate the Heat on their title run:

When a pro team celebrates, they do it big just as Tannehill points out. Just check out their cake that is fit to feed nearly all of Miami-Dade County. Also be sure to check out more content from our friends at Peninsula is Mightier.

When the Heat won their last championship, the Marlins were still named Florida and were playing in whatever name that old stadium was. Anyway, they finished 78-84. Dontrelle Willis, Scott Olsen and Josh Johnson each had 12 wins that season.

On the plus side that year, Joe Girardi was the manager of the Fish and the big offensive bat came from Miguel Cabrera with 26 home runs and 114 RBI.

In terms of 2012, one of the big fish in the pond is Giancarlo Stanton, and he made an appearance to MLB Network's "Intentional Talk" on Friday:

This week, the Marlins are home against the Cardinals and Phillies. All weeknight games start at 7:10 p.m. while Saturday's game begins at 4:10 p.m. and the Sunday matinee is at 1:10.
