NFL Network to Showcase Miami Dolphins on Tuesday June 10th

The NFL Network, as part of their Decades Month and as this week they are honoring the top teams from the 1970's, will be featuring the Miami Dolphins with 8 straight hours of highlight shows on Tuesday June 10th.

Their coverage begins at 2 PM with a 2 1/2 hour rebroadcast of Super Bowl VII in which the Miami Dolphins bested the Washington Redskins to finish the 1972 season as the only Perfect Team in NFL history at 17-0.  If you haven't had an opportunity to actually watch that game, now is your chance to see it play by play from the Los Angeles Memorial Stadium on January 14, 1973.

This will be a special treat to hear NBC's Curt Gowdy and Al DeRogatis call the game.  I am sure it will bring back some fond memories for those of us old enough to have seen the live broadcast way back when.

Directly following at 4:30, the NFL Network will rebroadcast a half hour highlight show of Super Bowl VII.  This was originally produced by NFL Films.

From 5-6 PM, the NFL Network will be re-airing "Don Shula: A Football Life".  This one hour special will highlight the football career of Don Shula.  Surprisingly, they actually get it all in in just one hour.  This is a must see for all generations of Dolfans.

From 6-7 PM, the NFL Network will be re-airing their show "America's Game: Super Bowl VII" which highlights the 1972 Miami Dolphins Championship Season.  With commentary from Don Shula, Manny Fernandez and Larry Csonka, you will get an insider's view of the NFL Network's #1 Ranked All Time Super Bowl Winning Team.  Plus, Fernandez and Csonka share some funny stories.

From 7-8 PM, the NFL Network will be re-airing their show "America's Game: Super Bowl VIII" which highlights the 1973 Miami Dolphins Championship Season which capped off a 15-2 record with a victory over the Minnesota Vikings.   In this segment, Bob Kuechenburg, Mercury Morris and Dick Anderson bring their perspective of that season right into your living room.  This is a well produced series by the NFL Network.

Finally from 9-10 PM, if you haven't had enough of our proud past, you can watch "Don Shula; A Football Life" again.  After all, who can actually get their fill of the Miami Dolphins' legendary head coach.       

Personally, I am looking forward to the rebroadcast of Super Bowl VII.  My DVR is already set.  This was a game with a few crazy plays in it.  Of course, I won't spoil it for you so set your DVRs tonight.

Phins Up!!!
