About me...

Every year or so, I remind everyone (when I start sounding fair-weathered) about me...

I was a fan from the early 70s.  Loved this team through high school and college, and beyond....was a season ticket for a number of years and sat through every game I went to...

I started a website (that became this blog) as one of the first on the block (Curt at phins.com probably beat me by a couple of weeks), and was as passionate as anyone.  I helped found finsradio.  I was a good ambassador for the team. And still followed them through Nick, Cam, and into Sparano.

But everyone has a breaking point, and somewhere in there, among all the relative lies, poor performances, and lack of leadership *anywhere*, I stopped watching every week.

Over the last few years, I have found more enjoyment watching RedZone, and the entertainment aspect more than *any* single game.  I have a fantasy team and its fun to key in on performances. 

And while I tried to make Dolphins fans out of my boys, well, that hasn't worked so well.  The team didn't capture their interest, and they are fans of individual players rather than a team.

That's how it goes.  I don't believe that makes me fair-weathered.  And to be fair, even in the unlikely scenario that the team went on a tear, and finished 14-2, and was the favorite to win it all, I don't think I would ever go back to watching every week.
 
You may notice that I only comment occasionally on this blog, and its more observational, and about a general topic.  That's because I don't want to come off as a "true fan" ... I still care to a point, and feel a need to comment at times. Just about what I'm seeing...

Dave, you love the game and that's what is important.

You were an important player in the beginning of the Dolphins' journey into this medium. A true pioneer!
