Today our 2013 NBA Champs, the Miami Heat, will be parading in a parade in their honor. Congrats to them, and if YOU are going to be a part of the celebration, please remember to drink a lot of water, protect yourself from the sun and do a lot of dancing in the streets!
Thanks to the team for an outstanding season of basketball watching.
