Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins, would likely do anything at this point to take the attention of the team's fans away from the terrible product on the field. 

If he was praying for a big story that would involve a player on the Dolphins that's relatively harmless, but says nothing of their poor performance of late, his prayers were answered.

For that, he can thank the news that Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from husband and NBA power forward Kris Humphries. 

The news of the divorce itself isn't enough, though. What's important to the Dolphins is that according to this story from, 'Phins running back Reggie Bush had lunch with ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian on Saturday afternoon while both were in New York. 

Bush and Kardashian met at what was described as "a high priced sushi restaurant in NYC." At first, Reggie had declined because he was busy; however, due to the storm that engulfed the Northeast, the Dolphins team plane flew into New York earlier than expected, which allowed Reggie to meet Kim for lunch. 

Really, there's not many other details I can share without you clicking on the link. I'm not the type to revel in celebrity gossip; in fact, I'm one to actually loathe reading about the exploits of celebrities. In fact, I'm rather annoyed by it. 

But Ross likely doesn't mind it at all. If anything, it must be the most welcome news he's heard about his team in a long while. 

Now the attention amongst the general public, at least for this media cycle, won't be on Suck For Luck or the failures of the Parcells/Ireland/Sparano era (something I'd rather talk about like I did in this editorial published earlier today), but instead on rumors about whether or not Reggie and Kim will be reunited. 

If such a reunification occurs, Ross will also be pleased, as he'll have another celebrity to attend games and walk across the "Orange Carpet."

It also helps that Bush had the best game of his career on the ground the day after his lunch, running for 103 yards on 15 carries.

Of course to people like me and likely you, the reader, this is not news nor something to really talk about. 

But for Stephen Ross and the Miami Dolphins, well, it is much better than having to hear about how terrible they have been.
