Dolfans NYC Ice Water Challenge

Monday, August 25th, 2014

The Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) has blown up on the internet and has a great job putting eyes on the terrible neurological disease. Unfortunately at some point people stopped even talking about the disease in their videos or encouraging people to donate money to help find a cure. It’s become shameless self promoting for celebrities and people who want to be celebrities.

Both Michelle and I have been challenged by friends so we wanted to do something for ALS but we didn’t want to just do another video. Dolfans NYC has always been about raising money for good causes so instead of getting soaked in cold water we will be donating $200 to ALS Association and we are asking you guys to take some time to read about ALS and maybe make your own donation.

In the spirit of the Ice Bucket Challenge I quickly made an “Ice Water Challenge” video and am calling out our friends at Phin Phanatic, The DC/NOVA Dolfans and the NorCal Dolfans. We are asking them to try and match our donation and maybe do their own video to help spread awareness. And yes, you guys can dump ice on your head if you really want!

UPDATE: Apparently Phin Phanatic was WAY ahead of us… Instead we are calling out the Phins Addicts!

 

Get Ready For Some Football!

I don’t know about you guys but I am getting way too excited about the NFL season. We here at Dolfans NYC have been working non stop getting a bunch of stuff together and I wanted to update you on some of that progress but I figured we should talk about the actual team for a second.

After watching two preseason games a couple things are pretty clear… The Dolphins still have some pretty big holes. The offensive line is still a disaster and losing Pouncey to injury is not helping. The defense is very weak at linebacker and with Reshad Jones out for the first four games we apparently don’t have anyone that isn’t a lineman that can tackle. But there are some good signs as well, early NFL odds currently have us as only 4 point underdogs against the Patriots and I think that is partly because of how good the pass offense has looked.

Tannehill has played great in the preseason and even Matt More has looked pretty good. Despite the struggles of the offensive line and the running game Tannehill has been getting passes out very quickly with short and middle range passes that give our receivers room to work. 2nd round pick Landry has looked fantastic and Matthews has looked fantastic. It’s amazing how deep our WRs are. I think this offense should look pretty good as long as we can get the ball out of Tannehill’s hands fast. Moreno should help when get gets healthy. He’s a great pass blocker, receiver and runs straight ahead… all things we need right now.

On the Dolfans NYC side, we have so much going on! We of course are working on the #MetlifeTakeover (get your money in now!!) and the #SunLifeTakeover, but we also have a bunch of other things in the works!

We have some new merch this year including tote bags, black t-shirts an some warm weather gear that will be available a little later in the season. We are setting up an online store and it should be up and running by week one.

We just had a meeting with our bar, Slattery’s Midtown Pub, and they are going to doing some cool stuff this year to help make everything run smoother and be an even better experience. They have added several extra HD TVs and will have improved bar service all season. We are going to have DJ Tropic DJ every game so that we will have music during commercials, never have any delays in the fight song and he will have control of the game audio so if we start to get loud the TV’s audio will still be audible. If you guys were at any of our prime time events last year you know how much fun it was when he was DJing.

Anyway, I am on my 10th cup of coffee today and have been working on Dolfans NYC stuff for hours so I just wanted write something about how pumped we are for the season. I will be back with more details before the season starts but for now, make sure you are signed up and have paid for the #MetLifeTakeover and come with us to Miami for #SunLifeTakeover.  Win or lose it’s gonna be a fun year!
