It's the winning touchdown in the Dolphins' 22-16 overtime victory over the Ravens on 12-16-07!

Coach Don Shula (NFL's winningest coach) and I
would like to welcome you to this web site. Thank you for visiting!
**Picture taken on December 12, 1992, at a closed Dolphin practice in Miami, Florida.**
Coach Shula passed away on May 4, 2020, and I'll forever be grateful that he was the one who led the Miami Dolphins to greatness.  I admire him for the way he was--a passionate, Lord- and family-loving man who handled himself with class and contributed to the betterment of mankind for 90 years.  Thank you, Coach, and may you rest peacefully and joyfully in Heaven!

I am...

I watched from home as the greatest quarterback ever was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on August 7, 2005.  Marino's son delivered an impressive introduction; then Dan took over and calmly surpassed everyone's expectations with an unforgettable speech.  Dan Marino, thank you for all of the wonderfully exciting moments that you provided for Dolphin fans across the country from 1983-1999.  You are the GREATEST!

Is this absolutely gorgeous or what? Yes, I agree.

I loved what Chris Chambers did for the Dolphins.
His catch to beat Buffalo in 2001 was, um, sick!

Two Fin Fans on 2-4-07 (Super Bowl 41)
I am so glad the Fins drafted John Beck and NOT Brady Quinn.  Watch Beck throw the ball and listen to his words.  This guy is a player and a leader...and the Fins won't have to pay him an outrageous amount of $$ like Quinn would've needed.

"Ricky's back...or at least he was for six carries against
Pittsburgh on a sloshy Monday night before suffering a season-ending injury....we want you back in 2008, Ricky" says Greg Cantine.

Update (11-11-08): Ricky rushed for 105 yards and a TD two days ago as the Fins, now 5-4, have become serious playoff contenders. Ricky showed no signs of slowing down...and I'm so glad he's back!!

What could possibly make a Dolphins fan happier after his team loses and falls to 0-9?

Answer: Three Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders
What's even better than that?
Lacy (on my left) shares the same birthday month as me. What does that mean? Nothing.
Answer: Meeting two of them!

Alright, Miami!!!   (Alex: 5th grade)

Madisen's "Cali for Nia" shirt shall bring good luck to the Dolphins, while Alyssa's expression shall chase away the Ravens' evil spirits.
These actions will bring about the Dolphins' first win of the season
