2015 #MetLifeTakeover Video!

Monday, December 14th, 2015

Tonight is Monday Night Football and in celebration today the 2015 #MetLifeTakeover video is here! The Dolphins might have lost the game but looking back in 10 years hopefully all we will remember is how much fun we had!

This video was shot by Greg Jeske and edited and hosted by Alex Bente. It featured interviews with Nat Moore, Tom Garfinkel, Andrew Abramson, Solo D, The Fintroopers and even Ace Ventura! Plus there is dancing… lots of dancing!

Thanks again to our sponsors Pabst Blue Ribbon, Sailor Jerry and AquaHydrate! Thanks to everyone who helped with the tailgate and everyone who helped with this video!

Honestly I don’t really know what else to say but watch the video and show it to everyone! Phins up!

This season has obviously been disappointing and Sunday was pretty much a disaster on the field but off the field we had a hell of a time. It’s hard to explain to someone who has never been to a #MetLifeTakeover but there is truly no better experience as a Miami Dolphins fan. Obviously I am a bit biased but when you get to tailgate with hundreds of fans and then all walk in and sit with 1000 Dolfans and make so much noise that you can hear us on TV even in a disaster of a game it’s the greatest feeling in the world.

In the fourth quarter we were getting killed and for some reason most of the Jets fans had already left the game. A lot of Dolphins fans had left too, but our section was still filled with a ton of die hards. The Dolphins scored and we sang the fight song as loud as we could. We then recovered and onside kick and were cheering like crazy. Then, the Dolphins being the Dolphins, we fumbled the ball and the few remaining Jets fans started laughing at us. I turned to our remaining crowd and started chanting “Let’s Go Dolphins” as loud as I could. The rest of crew joined me and all you could hear was “Let’s Go Dolphins” despite just turning over the ball on the fourth quarter of a blow out. It was one of my proudest moments as a Dolphins fan.

It’s easy to be a fan when you are winning. It takes something special to root for your team when you are terrible. Reshad Jones TweetedWhen you winning, everyone is your friend, it’s easy to be on the wagon, so a SPECIAL shout-out to the ride or die fans!!” and we showed everyone we are out here riding for our team!

Now, about the tailgate!

We had a blast! Our four busses made it to the tailgate by 9am so we had hours to party. DJ Tropic DJ’d the whole thing which really upped the game from the last few years. Solo D and his Miami Sports Music/ DWA crew perform. We had a catered tailgate and Pabst Blue Ribbon donated 600 beers! We had water from AqauHydrate and Sailor Jerry Rum & cider. We are so lucky to have such rad sponsors.

We raised nearly $3000 through donations and merch sales which when you add to the money we made at the #MetLifeTakeover Pre-Party was close to $5000 that we can donate charity for the weekend not including the money we made from ticket sales. Plus we had a ton of people bring toys to continue the toy drive we did from the night before. Really amazing. Thanks so much everyone!

We had some cool guests at the tailgate as well. Dolphins legend Nat Moore and CEO Tom Garfinkel showed up at the tailgate which is always awesome. They have been big supporters of what we do up here. We also had Andrew Abramson from the Palm Beach Post and Brent Grimes infamous wife Miko show up as well. Miko has come to all our tailgates and this is Andrew’s second one so I appreciate the support from them. We even had some Jets fans come by to talk some smack. But they are the guys responsible for flying banners over the Patriots practices to troll them so I guess they aren’t so terrible.

Anyway, it was a terrible game but another amazing experience. Let’s just hope next year’s Takeover isn’t on Thanksgiving so we can bring out even more Dolfans and get another win. Since the first big #MetLifeTakeover this is our only loss so I think we are doing pretty well overall. Phins up!

Now check out all the photos from the tailgate!

Jets Week Photos

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

As bad as the Dolphins have been I have been amazed at how Dolfans NYC has continued to show up. On Sunday against a terrible Broncos the bar was packed by halftime. When the game started there were only about a dozen of us and I figured it was going to be empty but by God you guys kept showing up and we had a great time comiserating about the team and discussing the future. When you blow a game like that it’s really nice to be surrounded by people who feel your pain.

It took me a while to get over losing to the Jets and finally put these photos up but I have some great pictures for you.

First off we had our Nat Moore meet and greet event last Sunday. If you weren’t there Nat Moore came by to watch football with us. We had a raffle and raised some money for charity. Third and Long paid for food for everyone and Nat talked with everyone and signed autographs. He was really great and I cannot thank him enough. I know everyone there really apreciated it and I was really impressed with the turn out considering the Dolphins weren’t even playing.

The second batch of photos I have for you is from our amazing tailgate at the Jets game. We didn’t sell as many tickets as we were hoping but we still had more than 50 people all in the same section at the game and we had a lot more than that at the tailgate. We met people from all over the country and sold them a bunch of Dolfans NYC t-shirts (all the money goes to charity) to take home with them and rep in Miami and all over the place. A couple of guys were even in town from Belgium! Very cool. The game of course was a disaster but we held strong and most of us were still left in our seats when the whistle sounded. We had some fun after the game too but I think we will just leave it at that…

I am posting two galleries below. The top one is from the Nat Moore event at Third & Long and the bottom one is from the Monday Night Football tailgate at the Meadowlands. If you want a copy of a photo just double click on it in the slideshow and it will take you to the gallery.  Go Dolphins!

DolfansNYC Podcast, Episode 10: Nat Moore

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Last Sunday, Miami Dolphins legend Nat Moore paid a visit to Third and Long, the home of DolfansNYC. The bar was packed with aqua-and-orange, and Nat took the time out to sign autographs and pose for pictures with every fan, helping us raise several hundred dollars for charity.

Afterwards, the former Pro Bowl wide receiver, whose name is prominent in the team record books, joined us on the podcast to discuss some of his career highlights and favorite memories; catching passes from Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks Bob Griese and Dan Marino; the goals of the Nat Moore Foundation; and his impressions of DolfansNYC.

On Sunday, October 16, Miami Dolphins legend Nat Moore will visit the home of DolfansNYC, Third and Long on 35th Street and Third Avenue, at 1 p.m. EST. One of the greatest Dolphins of all-time, Nat ranks third in catches (510) and receiving yards (7,546) and second in receiving touchdowns (74) in team history, and played on two Miami Super Bowl teams.  Be sure to put on aqua and orange and stop by the bar to meet the Pro Bowl wide receiver, as well as get pictures and autographs.  We will have food and drink specials, and raffle off some amazing prizes.

We need to confirm our numbers with the bar, so please RSVP via Facebook or e-mail us at dolfansnyc@gmail.com to let us know if you can make it.

MiamiDolphins.com is also doing a feature on DolfansNYC, and a camera crew will be at Third and Long during Sunday’s event, as well as Monday’s game against the New York Jets.  If you are not attending the game with us, come out to the bar and show the cameras how we represent the Phins here in New York.

To help spread the word, here is a special message Nat has for DolfansNYC and the Jets.
