PLAYERS: Edwin Rodriguez
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
Four years of planning, hard work and dedication culminates Saturday night for Team Rodriguez as undefeated super middleweight Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez makes his HBO debut against Donovan George at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.

Miami Marlins Theme Song

Honestly, I was expecting something terrible, but even I wasn’t ready for this atrocity. This has only solidified my hatred for the bandwagon sports city that is MIA.
