GOOD TIMES AHEAD? In Miami, Greg Cote writes the Dolphins yesterday were "buying excitement," and "buying hope." They were "nourishing the idea that maybe -- just maybe -- this once-proud club is turning a real corner toward better days at last." The Dolphins were "the talk of the NFL on the first day for free-agent signings" (MIAMI HERALD, 3/13). In Boston, Ron Borges writes Ross "finally figured out that the way to fill the orange grove of empty seats at Sun Life Stadium is not by putting Gloria Estefan, Venus and Serena Williams and Marc Anthony in the stands." It is by "putting million dollar players on the field" (BOSTON HERALD, 3/13).
