With an 8-game losing streak and the ballpark situation reaching a critical point, we figured we will distract you with some breaking Marlins Mermaids news.

Yes, the ladies just shot their 2008 calendar at dusk on the site of the famous Nikki Beach nightclub. If you want to get your hands on one of those (the calendars, that is) you will want to mark your old Mermaids calendar for September 23rd when the Marlins play the New York Mets. Prior to the game, the first 10,000 fans will receive the free calendar. Make sure you show up early before the 35,000 Mets fan get to the game.
