2013 Wrap Up, #MetlifeTakeover Video & Super Bowl Plans

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

So things have not gone so well since I last updated. We lost back to back games including one to our hated rivals the Jets and one where I drove 8 hours to Buffalo to watch us get killed in freezing rain… at least I had great seats. We also had this great video from the #MetlifeTakeover but it wasn’t edited and ready to go until after the season was already over. Since then there has been a disastrous GM search and a Super Bowl in our city that I can’t even pretend to get excited about.

That being said, 2013 was a truly great year for Dolfans NYC. We found a new and improved home at Slattery’s Midtown Pub, raised thousands of dollars for various charities, threw the biggest away fan takeover in MetLife Stadium history and grew Dolfans NYC into a serious force in Dolphins fandom. The Dolphins new CEO even invited Michelle and I to watch a game in his box at SunLife. On top of that we really have created a family and even in horrible losses it’s been amazing to be around so many awesome Dolphins fans. There’s no place I would rather be than Slattery’s on Sunday and it makes the wins so much better and the losses sting a lot less.

This year we donated $3000 to the Miami Dolphins Foundation, sponsored two riders in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge, donated several hundred dollars to a breast cancer charity in October and made Christmas a lot better for two Dolphins fans who were injured in the Metro North train crash on the way to the #MetlifeTakeover. We also have raised a significant amount of money that’s sitting in the bank for next year. This money will be used to make more t-shirts, buy more prizes for our fund raising raffles and to make future charitable donations. This fundraising we do is truly the best thing about this for us. It means so much to be able to do something positive and have all this fun at the same time.

Michelle and I (and our many volunteers!) spend so much time on Dolfans NYC and people constantly thank us for all our work… but the truth is, we don’t need to be thanked. All this work is selfish. We do this because we want to have the best experience possible when watching Dolphins games and being able to watch every Sunday with 200+ passionate Dolphins fans or go to the Jets game with 760 of you guys is worth all the time and energy. So in reality I want to thank you guys for coming out and supporting what we do at Dolfans NYC!

Anyway, the Super Bowl is in NYC and I haven’t even checked out any of the events going on. So many Miami people are in town and I haven’t even gone down to Super Bowl Row. I feel like we should be doing more but Michelle is about to have a human child pop out of her and I am busy with work BUT, I just wanted to let everyone know that Slattery’s is going to be doing a big event for the Super Bowl.

Slattery’s is doing a $75 top shelf open bar with free appetizers upstairs  but it’s only $50 if you are wearing Dolphins colors! You can also watch the big game downstairs without having to pay for the open bar. Just pay as you go. I would love to watch the game with a bunch of Dolphins fans so let us know over on our Facebook page if you want to attend. Thanks!

Lastly, I wanted to finally get up our #Metlifetakeover video. This thing is so cool and I posted it on Facebook and Twitter but I never posted it on our actual page. I hope you guys get a chance to watch it because I really love this video. Thanks to Alex Bente and his crew for filming and editing this! Also thanks again to Sailor Jerry and PBR for sponsoring our tailgate.

The Super Bowl Looms…

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Hey guys.  It’s been a bit since I updated.  I just wanted everyone to know that I am going to try to update this site about once a week during the off season.  Maybe a little round up of Phins news or some videos or something.  I just want to keep the momentum going.

I collect Miami Dolphins related records and I made a few recordings of a couple of things I have.  I will get those up here periodically over the next few weeks and months.  They should be pretty cool, stuff not a lot of people have heard, including the original recording of the fight song which sounds completely different from the one they play at Dolphins Stadium.

Now a few quick words on the Phins:

  • Joey Porter is an asshole. He is going on every radio station he can find to complain about the Dolphins and to force his way out of Miami.  I can’t wait to see how Sporano is going to  handel him.  The worst part about it was that Channing Crowder got his back on the air and said that the situation was bad for the team chemistry.
  • Thank God the Jets didn’t make it to the Super Bowl.  We would have all had to move if that had happened.  The best part is, because they lost in the AFC Championship they have restrictions on what sort of free agents they can sign. Amazing.
  • Speaking of the Jets, seeing Rex Ryan flip off some Phins fans made my week.  I bought a copy of the NY Daily News with him on the cover. The headline read “REX-RATED”.  Next time I see him at the bank I will see if I can get it signed…
  • Lastly, how sad is it that we missed out on Drew Brees not once, but twice.  The guy is one of the best in the game and he could have been ours. Instead we got Jamal Fletcher and Daunte Culpepper. Woops

Okay guys, hopefully I will be back soon. We have some off season surprises instore for you, so keep checking back… Go Dolphins!
