Lionel Messi sits again as Inter Miami loses U.S. Open Cup final to the Houston Dynamo

FORT LAUDERDALE — Thousands of pink No. 10 Lionel Messi jerseys nearly filled DRV PNK Stadium Wednesday night for the highly anticipated U.S. Open Cup final between Inter Miami and the Houston Dynamo, but the Argentine icon was not wearing one. Messi, bothered by a nagging old injury, was not in uniform and left off the Miami roster. He showed up shortly before kickoff in street clothes and watched the game from the field-level suites, where French legend Zinedine Zidane, Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham, and Dynamo co-owner James Harden were among the dignitaries in attendance. The Argentine...

DeSantis knocks Trump, GOP moves on from Reagan and other presidential debate takeaways

By MICHELLE L. PRICE and NICHOLAS RICCARDI (Associated Press) Seven Republican presidential hopefuls gathered at the Reagan Library in California on Wednesday for the second of the party’s primary debates. The contest’s dominant front-runner — former President Donald Trump — skipped the event again. With less than four months until the Iowa caucuses officially jumpstart the GOP nomination process, the pressure is building on Trump’s rivals to show they can emerge as a genuine alternative. Here are some early takeaways from the debate: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had an aggressive start, using...

Marlins-Mets game postponed due to unplayable field conditions; teams will play doubleheader Wednesday

By MIKE FITZPATRICK NEW YORK — The series opener between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets was postponed Tuesday night because of unplayable field conditions caused by Tropical Storm Ophelia. The game will be made up Wednesday as part of a single-admission doubleheader beginning at 4:10 p.m. It’s a crucial series for Miami, which began the day one game out of a National League playoff spot with six to play. The Mets are eliminated from postseason contention. Three straight days of rain in New York left the Citi Field infield a soggy mess when the showers finally subsided late Tuesday afternoon...

Defense asks judge to dismiss double murder case against YNW Melly

Defense lawyers in the YNW Melly double murder case are demanding a dismissal of the charges, accusing prosecutors of withholding incriminating information about their lead detective. Over the summer, attorneys for the rapper, whose real name is Jamell Demons, filed a complaint against Miramar Police Detective Mark Moretti, accusing him of forcibly taking a cell phone belonging to Demons’ mother while he was questioning her in connection with the case at the Broward courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale in October 2022. According to the defense, Moretti was outside his jurisdiction when he...

The Miami Hurricanes are coming off their first Final Four appearance in school history, and now they know what teams they will be facing as they try to punch their ticket back to the NCAA Tournament.

DeSantis’ move to pull Sagemont scholarships: Concern about Communist China ties or a political stunt?

Florida’s move to cut off a high-end private school in Weston from state subsidies to parents has raised political and policy questions: Were the schools really an “imminent threat to the health, safety, and welfare” of the students and the public? Or was the state’s move a political stunt to bolster Gov. Ron DeSantis’ struggling presidential campaign? At least 229 students were receiving taxpayer-funded scholarships at the two Sagemont Preparatory School campuses in Weston that were targeted late Friday by DeSantis for alleged ties to the Chinese Communist Party. His office on Monday referred...

Chris Perkins: Dolphins’ defense shines in 70-20 blowout win over Broncos

MIAMI GARDENS — Give some love to the Miami Dolphins’ defense, which played more than a supporting role in Sunday’s 70-20 dominant victory over the Denver Broncos. The defense, hard as it is to believe, was a star. “We just played together,” linebacker Jerome Baker said. “It’s as simple as that.” You’d think it’d be hard to shine when the offense scores 10 touchdowns and a franchise-record amount of points. The Dolphins’ defense, one of the season’s big reclamation projects along with the offensive line and the run game, got some shine, however. Consider what the Dolphins’ defense did: *It produced...

Lackluster Gators slip by Charlotte behind stout defense, 5 field goals

GAINESVILLE — Florida’s 22-7 win against Charlotte on Saturday night marked the Gators’ first three-game winning streak under Billy Napier but felt like a hollow victory. It could be a warning sign with SEC play set to ramp up Sept. 30 at Kentucky, winner of three of the past five meetings. “It’s hard to win,” Napier said. “We had to grind that one out. Half the teams in college football lost and the Gators won.  “Are we happy with a lot of the things that went on out there? No.” Napier’s squad failed to build on the momentum of an emotional and resounding 29-16 win against Tennessee but dispatched...

Altmyer bounces back as Illinois, down by 10, rallies past FAU

By STEVE STEIN (Associated Press) CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Luke Altmyer threw a touchdown pass and ran for another and Isaiah Williams caught eight passes for 120 yards to lead Illinois to a 23-17 win over Florida Atlantic in a non-conference game Saturday. It was a bounce-back game for Altmyer, who threw four interceptions in the 30-13 loss to Penn State last week and was benched in the fourth quarter. He completed 25 of 36 passes for 303 yards and wasn’t picked off. Florida Atlantic’s Daniel Richardson, in his first start after Casey Thompson suffered a season-ending ACL tear, completed 28 of 49...
