In any case, let me clarify my "once proud franchise" statement. I was speaking of the Dolphins. All these years, I sported my colors. (People seem to get the idea that girls like the Phins because of their colors....aqua and orange? really? My linemen look like pumpkins in those orange jerseys.) Let me tell you, I was proud. Proud of their history, coaches, players, owner, all of it. For the last decade or so (disregarding this year and last) I wasn't proud. I saw poor management, horrible coaches, godawful drafts and free agency, and disheartened players. Worst of all I saw fans, people I talked it up with, cheered with and shared disappointment with, turn. Turned to the Patriots! Ugh. :vomit:
I wasn't proud of any of that. But I watched every painful game, raged against so many bad moves and sat with my head in my hands for more games than I can count. I did it because it was my team, my marriage. For better or worse, right?
IMO that's what a true fan does. The Skins will improve, and let me tell you, stick with it because when it happens, it's one of the best feelings in the world.
Bill Parcells. Nuff said.
Here's to your continued success!
To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered.
