A Good Cause and A Good Cry

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009
Well, I’m almost recovered from that terrible loss to the Patriots – a team that I dislike A LOT! As some of you may know, I used to watch the Phins games in a Pats bar. It was brutal, week after week, but also inspired Igor and I to start DolfansNYC, so certainly a bittersweet experience.
In any case, the thing that definitely helped me feel better about the game was looking back at how awesome the people at Third and Long were on Sunday. So many of you contributed to our fundraiser to support the club and The I Will Foundation. I had a terrific opportunity to meet Matt Long, the founder of I Will. His story is moving and inspiring and I encourage all of you to check it out on his website iwillfoundation.com We talked about having him come in to meet everyone during one of our games in December, which is going to be awesome!
Dolfans – I can’t thank you all enough for your generosity, enthusiasm and great energy! You are the reason this club is so awesome and I look forward to seeing you guys during the weeks ahead.
Also a VERY special thanks to Curtis, the manager at the bar, who has been a great supporter of DolfansNYC and continues to be a rock star! You’re the best!
Enjoy this short video from Sunday at Third and Long.
GO DOLPHINS!!!

It took me a few days to get back to the computer after that awful loss against the Patriots.  We just seem to want to throw away these winnable games. Still, our fund raiser nearly doubled what we were trying to raise and we are going to be able to give the I Will Foundation a pretty decent check.  I think people had a lot of fun.  I only shot a few photos because I hadn’t slept and because I was freaking out about the game, but the ones I shot are pretty nice. You should check them out below.  As always double click the slide show to get to our Flickr site and download the pictures.  We will have video up soon.

New England Week

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

This is the turning point in our season.  If we can beat the Cheatin’ Pats we can be 4-4 and just a game out of first place in the AFC East with a 4-0 division record.  If we win this game, we have a soft schedule ahead with a home game against the Patriots and only two other games against teams over .500. If we lose we are 3-5 and three games behind the Patriots.  This is a must win if there ever was must win in the first half of a season. And we might have to do it without Crowder and big Jason Ferguson. Yikes.

Now, to celebrate this momentous game DolfansNYC is throwing a party.  We are doing a big fundraiser for the game that hopefully you have heard about.  We are going to have 40 bracelets available for $10 each which get you delicious catered food and a raffle ticket.  We will also have raffle tickets available for $1 each. We know we have promised raffles before, but this time we are actually doing it. We have Dolphins signed items and some other random Dolphins stuff available. We are getting there at noon, and if the turnout is anything like the Saints game, the food is going to go fast, so get there early.

The proceeds from this fundraiser are going to be split between DolfansNYC and our adopted charity the I Will Foundation.  The goal of this club from the begining was not only to bring fans together to watch “the greatest football team” but to try to do some good.  We have spent a lot of money putting this thing together and are trying to recoup it so we can do more stuff for the club.  But on top of that we want to raise money for charity and the I Will Foundation is a foundation helping injured people that was started by the owner of Third & Long.

Anyway, Michelle is going to be there before the bar even opens decorating the place and setting everything up.  Come hungry, there is going to be a lot of food. It should be crazy so I hope to see you all out there.  I am in Texas at my cousins wedding but managed to find a flight that lands me in JFK at 1130. It will be a mad rush to Third & Long straight from the airport.  Let’s hope I make it.

Go Dolphins!

The Faces Of DolfansNYC

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Welcome to another exciting edition of The Faces of DolfansNYC.  This time we interviewed fan club members at our big tailgate at the Meadowlands.  One of our members showed up on crutches.  That is dedication.  We will be interviewing people every week for this segment so come get interviewed on Sunday for our beat the Patriots DolfansNYC fundraiser at Third and Long.

Sweeeep!

The Dolphins took out the Jets yesterday and may have redeemed Ted Ginn at least for a few days. It was a great thing to watch and we were there.  DolfansNYC turned out in force and we helped take over the stadium. It was beautiful.  Besides the 30 tickets we bought as a group a ton of other members came out to tailgate and we had a blast.  We passed out nearly 300 flyers for the club, so I expect next Sunday’s tailgate party/fundraiser for the Pats game to be nuts.  We have worked it out so there will be a huge spread of food at Third and Long that you can gorge yourself on for $10 which goes to promoting the club and to Third & Longs charity the I Will Foundation.  But back to yesterday…

I took a ton of pictures of the tailgate and Michelle shot a lot of video. We will have two new videos going up this week and Michelle is going to give you her own recap of our tailgate party.  What a weekend.  Check out the pictures below and as always double click the slideshow to go to the Flickr page to download the images.
