"Ball is life" is not just a catchy hashtag, it really is a lifestyle. Follow anyone on the Miami Heat team on social media, and that is more than apparent. The players are always looking for ways to evolve their games, from traditional training or more unorthodox methods. Recently, Jimmy Butler and Chris Silva were spotted making up a totally new game they dubbed ‘Soccer Tennis,’ and fans were loving it on social media.
While the rules were less than clear from the video, it was obvious both parties were having a blast just kicking the ball around, and practicing skills they’d use on the court, too.
In the comments, fans speculated that the new game was inspired by Paul Pogba’s recent visit to the Miami Heat’s games.
Pogba was in Miami visiting his long-time friend Jimmy Butler, and the two were even seen eating out with Pharrell Williams at a Miami restaurant.
As far as Soccer Tennis goes, as Butler and Silva kicked the ball over a low ‘net’ made of stacked chairs, Butler was not giving Silva any slack.
The Miami Heat account even asked fans in the comments if anyone would challenge Jimmy in the new game.
Many agreed they would, while others still argued that should really be called “Futbol Tennis.”
No matter the setting, Butler will play whenever and however, and Silva can confirm, he does not lose!
"The fact that a new species like this could be found in a fragment of endangered forest in the middle of the city underscores the importance of preserving these ecosystems before we lose not only what we know, but also what is still to be discovered," said Frank Ridgley, DVM, Zoo Miami's conservation & veterinary services manager. "Venoms of related species have been found to contain compounds with potential use as pain medications and cancer treatments."
The new species has not been documented anywhere else but the pine rockland fragments around the zoo. Only about 1.5% of the pine rocklands outside Everglades National Park are actually left in Miami-Dade County, leading researchers to believe the species may already be near extinction.

Governor Ron DeSantis ordered that beer, wine, and cocktails could be made to-go in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 back in March of 2020, and he has been a supporter of making it a permanent thing ever since.
