OK, I had to comment on this one. Thanks for reminding me what an awesome night this was!!I've been a Dolphins fan since the early 80's, living in Bermuda, never been to a live game. Through Facebook I found the buddy I hadn't seen in 20 years who got me into the Phins as a kid and gave me this life long love affair. Turns out he's still just as much a Phinatic as I am and I decide I'm finally gonna go to Miami to watch my first live game.And this was the game I picked - kind of a no brainer, the hated Jests on MNF! Couldn't have scripted it any better than that. This night ranks up in the top 5 moments of my life after my wedding day and being in Canton to see Danny get inducted.Will never forget this one, and never get tired of watching the highlights...
For a football fan there is nothing like going to your first game. The first game I went to was Super Bowl III Jets/Colts in the Orange Bowl. Yes I was there, it is no lie. We had sideline seats at about the 5 yard line row 22 lower deck closed end of the field Colts side.I wish I remembered more of the game than what I do. I was 17 or 18 at the time. 2 years later and I had Dolphin season tickets and held them for the next 6 years until we moved out of the area. I still live in FL. about 100 miles away, and follow the Dolphins like some people follow their God :)
This has to be one of the greatest games of my life. I watched it three times in a row because I enjoyed it so much.Football can leave you with some pretty great memories.
AllThere is charter boat captain that runs a guide service out of the Vero Beach area. He has a saying when he closes out giving his weekly fishing reports. The phrase he uses is : Go out catch yourself a memory..I think that sums up the feeling I have when ever I get to see a game.There is just something about beating the Jets that leaves me with the same feelings when latching on to big snook. Both of them leave a great memory :))
Agreed Riverdog. Down with the jets
