Week 11 Pictures

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Although it seems ages ago after that tragedy that befell us on Thanksgiving Day, last Sunday was fantastic. Our boys in Aqua trounced the Buffalo Jills in the most brutal fashion. Our defense came up huge pounding away on the Bills who limped off the field down by multiple scores after just the first half. It was a beautiful thing.

Third and Long was not exactly packed as you might expect when your team loses seven straight games to open a season but the die hards are there every week and by the end of the first quarter the bar was bumping. This was the most fun I have had watching a Dolphins game since I had second row seats to watch the Phins beat the Jets at the Meadowlands to lock up the AFC Championship in 2008. It was a great day.

I took a few pictures that are not exactly the most flattering shots of our bunch. Earlier in the year we tend to have a lot more cute girls out. But hey a win is a win and shots all around. Go Dolphins!

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!

Back To Football!!

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Football is back! Free agency starts at 6pm on Friday but players can talk to teams as soon as 10am tomorrow morning. I hope you guys are as excited as I am about getting back to football. I know the Dolphins are. They are asking Dolphins fans to set this image as their Facebook avatar to get everyone excited about the new season. They also put up a Back To Football website and shared with us this video. It may mostly be a promotional tool to sell season tickets, but it sure gets me pumped. Let’s go Dolphins!

Dolfans NYC Draft Party Pictures!

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

First of all let me apologize for not getting these pictures up sooner. I have been out of town a lot and Short Michelle and Alex are busy planning their wedding next weekend. Combine that with the lockout and a less than exciting first round pick and it all adds up to me posting this weeks late.  Sorry.

I also want to say that when I say less than exciting about Mike Pouncey only mean that being a lineman isn’t exactly someone you spend a lot of time watching highlights of. I am pretty happy with the pick and the draft over all. Let’s just hope we can improve our back field in the off season.

The Dolfans NYC turnout was a little low this year as was the turnout of the draft in general. It rained the night before when we had to wait in line, and of course the lockout thing, so pretty much just the die hard football fans showed up. A lot of the Dolfans NYC die hards had to work too. But even after all that we still had a pretty good turn out and filled up an entire row of the draft.  We brought along ALRIGHT MIAMI signs for Jim Mandich and even got Roger Godell to hold one up for us. Mad Dog had just died and we wanted to try to get out signs on TV to show our love and express the sadness of Dolphins fans everywhere.  Luckily we made it on both NFL Network and on ESPN!

Anyway, we all had a blast, and I think it’s too late to give a draft wrap up, so why don’t you guys just check out all the pictures and we will see you soon. We should have some new videos up once Michelle gets back from her honeymoon!

Dolfans NYC Draft Event

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Sorry we have been distant.  This lockout is getting to us!  But we have some details about our most exciting draft event.  Dolfans NYC is going to roll deep and we want you to come with us!

Though there is some uncertainty as far as the upcoming season, the show must go on. And in this case, the show is the 2011 NFL Draft! The Dolphins have the 15th pick and it’s anyone’s guess as to what they plan on doing with it. All we know is that we want to get everyone together to see it happen!! Who’s in?!?!

Here’s the deal….

WEDNESDAY, April 27th – Fans can line up at Radio City Music Hall starting at 10pm. At midnight, wristbands will be given at a first come, first served basis.

THURSDAY, April 28th – Fans with a wristband can line up at 6:00pm to receive their tickets. Please note that tickets have seating assignments on them, so the plan is for us all to go together!

So….on Wednesday, let’s meet up at 8pm, which should be early enough to get a good spot in line. For anyone who has been to the Draft before, it’s nearly impossible to join your friends once they line up, so it’s important that we all line up together. Radio City is on 50th and 6th. There’s a Magnolia Bakery on the corner of 49th and 6th. Let’s meet there at 8:00pm and walk over together to line up.

On Thursday, let’s meet up at that same Magnolia Bakery at 6:15pm so we can walk over and get tickets with seats together. The tickets are given out in a random order so showing up early doesn’t give you an advantage. We aren’t meeting up until 6:15 to give every one a chance to get to midtown after work.

For anyone who wants to meet up once inside Radio City, please check our Facebook and Twitter pages. We will post where we are sitting.

Please email us if you plan on joining, so we have a good idea of how many people to expect. If you do attend, please don’t forget to bring your Phins gear! (towels, flags, banners, etc).

Go Dolphins!!

The Funeral

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Please join for a memorial service for the 2010 Miami Dolphins at Third and Long this Sunday at 1PM Eastern Standard Time.  Join your fellow Dolphins fans and drink a toast to a severely mediocre Dolphins team that excited us at times but mostly just disappointed. Even in defeat at Third & Long we have each other to take solace in and this Sunday is the perfect time to say goodbye to you fellow Dolfans NYC members before we make our separate ways for the off season… besides we could beat the fucking Patriots.

Seriously.  The Patriots will probably play their guys most of the game because they hate losing.  They have no reason to play anyone so maybe we will get lucky, but honestly lucky has nothing to do with it.  The Dolphins play to the teams that play them. The Patriots are the best team in the NFL so if only for a Sunday I have a feeling the Dolphins will play pretty well too.  We have only lost one game on the road and we ALWAYS give the Patriots fits.  Honestly, even though we got killed by them this year, we really outplayed them on offense and defense.  Tragically our special teams had the worst game in history and then Henne threw a garbage time pick six.  Otherwise that game would have been very, very close.

So come out this Sunday, say goodbye to all the friends you have met this year and let’s root for our team like the quality Dolphins fans we are.

Our boy Solo D knows what’s up… check out his new track “Finish Strong”:

DolfansNYC Meets Dan Marino

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Last Sunday is a day that DolfansNYC will never forget.

Through the help of Michelle’s coworker, we had the opportunity to attend a live taping of CBS’ “NFL Today.” We stood behind the set as James Brown, Dan Marino, Bill Cowher, Shannon Sharpe, and Boomer Esiason went through the highlights at halftime of the early afternoon games. Once the cameras were off, we walked onto the set and took a picture with the entire cast.

And then, we had the chance to meet our idol, the greatest quarterback in Miami Dolphins history.

It was a little intimidating when my fiancée, Michelle, introduced me to her first crush. I felt like I needed to challenge Dan Marino to a throwing contest to win over her affections. Luckily, I thought better of it and excitedly shook his hand. After all, the man looks like he could still hit open receivers 50 yards down the field with his cannon arm.

“Is this for me? Can I keep this?” asked Marino after we gave him a DolfansNYC t-shirt. He thanked us for the gift, posed for a picture, and autographed our football, jersey, and photo.

As Igor said afterwards, it was an epic day.

What’s Your Fantasy? Week 7 (2010)

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

“What’s Your Fantasy” is here to get you set for Week 7. As always, I break down the players to start, bench, and think about for your lineup. This week, I finally get to shave my beard (hoorah!), recommend playing a Steeler against the Dolphins (boooo!), and answer a question sent in by a loyal viewer. As always, we’ve got music and a touch of humor for your viewing pleasure. Go Fins!!

Dolphins Vs Packers

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed the break from football as much as I did. After having my heart broken two weeks in a row I have pretty much avoided everything Dolphins for a while. I just couldn’t take it. But I am officially back on board.

The Dolphins are 2-0 on the road and ready to make it 3-0 against a banged up Packers. It looks like Aaron Rodgers is going to play but Clay Matthews is doubtful and Woodson has a toe injury which is never a good injury for a DB to have. On the Dolphins side we are the healthiest we have been all year coming off the bye week. Looks like Odrick is still out, but we finally get Crowder back and John Jerry is at least going to be worked in. If the Dolphins can hit Rodgers early (and Cam Wake should have a day with RT Mark Tauscher doubtful) I think they have a pretty good chance of taking the upset and getting back on track. And I pray they do because I can not take three straight losses. We need this game.

I am excited to see everyone at Third & Long (35th and 3rd Ave) this week. We should have a little more room to move around at the bar this week since it is not a big division game, but I hope to see the place pretty packed anyway. I know that anyone who can manage to be a Phins fan in the middle of Jests country can’t possibly be a fair weather fan. We aren’t doing a raffle or anything this week, but we still have drink specials if you are wearing Dolphins colors and as always we will have sound and the game on more than half the TV’s in the bar.

I can’t wait! Go Dolphins!

What’s Your Fantasy? Week 5 (2010)

Friday, October 8th, 2010

 

We’re going to pretend Monday night didn’t happen and move on with “What’s Your Fantasy” for Week 5.  As always, I break down the players to start, bench, and think about for your lineup.   This week, I recommend benching the league’s leading passer – the same guy who couldn’t beat out Rex Grossman for a starting job not too long ago, by the way — and picking up a must-own player in the aftermath of the Randy Moss trade.  As always, we’ve got music and a touch of humor for your viewing pleasure.  Go Fins!!
