in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Miami Dolphins scored a highly improbable victory on Sunday, prevailing over the hapless Baltimore Ravens, 15-13.

Dolphins RB LaMichael James wants to go by LaMike

in Sports by

If LaMichael James is to make the Miami Dolphins’ final roster, he’ll do it as LaMike. No. 27 will be identified by the shorter first name on the press box flip cards at Thursday’s exhibition game against Tampa Bay. That’s a change for James, who has long been known by football fans as LaMichael, including when he finished third in the 2010 Heisman Trophy race with Oregon. “I prefer you call me LaMike,” James said Tuesday. “With LaMichael, I might…
