Dolphins Drinking Game - P1

  •  As a lifelong fan of the Miami Dolphins , going all the way back to the figurative Stone Age of the early 1980s, I’ve learned that fandom isn’t always highs & euphoria.Hell, if the post-Marino era has taught us anything it’s that we as a franchise & fanbase have been mostly spoiled for the bulk of our existence thanks to the leadership of “The Don” Shula and The Right Arm of God, Dan Marino. Since both stepped aside by the spring of 2000, the past 17 years have been about as fun as an involuntary colonoscopy thanks to poor leadership and mismanagement.Sure, we had that epic 2008 season, and a damn fine hot streak in 2016 that got short circuited by a cheap shot, but life as a Dolphins fan has been tough of late.Enter the #DolphinsDrinkingGame.What started as a sarcastic coping mechanism has manifested itself into a fun thing we can all participate in, provided we act like adults.And now comes the part when I implore you to approach this with a sense of humor and that whole “adult responsibility” thing.First, if you’re going to partake with adult beverages Miami Dolphins T-Shirt , do NOT get behind the wheel.Getting yourself and/or others hurt or killed is never worth it.Call a cab, request an UBER (don’t ride share with Jameis Winston) or get a designated driver.Second, nobody is saying you have to play along with alcohol.Feel free to use whatever beverage you like - ethically sourced non-GMO coffee, Earl Grey tea or even dank well water from Okeechobee.So now, I present you with our 1st preseason #DolphinsDrinkingGame rules, because the liver needs training camp too.Enjoy...DDG - P1@nashmax73Would You Draft Tom Brady on Your Fantasy Football Team? My wife steered the Honda Odyssey while children snoozed - I finally had some time to look into fantasy football. Fairly quickly, I had a treacherous, most perilous thought: if Tom Brady were on the board, and the value was there, could I click the “draft” button?It became a much harder proposition to resolve than I expected. Fantasy football requires a different level of fanhood Miami Dolphins Hats , one that’s more polygamous than your “true” monogamous Dolphins self. It also requires more emotional distance, especially if you are playing in a money league. Screw your feelings, draft the best players regardless of team and make money. Coolly monstrous. Like Nurse Ratched.Except it’s not easy to flirt with some players, as it creates a tension within that’s scantily worth visiting. I’ll admit fam, I had a relationship with LeSean McCoy in 2016. I thought he presented tremendous value in the 3rd round and I decided to overlook the nasty “Buffalo Bills” thing. It wasn’t my proudest moment, but it helped result in some dollars getting stacked.LeSean McCoy is not Tom Brady.Even when I type “Tom Brady”, I feel like punching myself in the face. No other player can make me feel that way. How dare I type the words Tom Brady on a Miami Dolphins website? The audacity! And I shutter at the thought of the existential work involved in drafting Tom Brady on a fantasy football team: you actually have to follow him and root for his statistical production. That thought alone may have ruptured my gall bladder.I don’t even want to draft Jimmy Garoppolo for the residual stench of being affiliated with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. I could have my draft right this very second, and not know what choice I’d make.What would you do? Would you draft Tom Brady on your fantasy team?Just to bury the hatchet with anybody who’s triggered by me bringing up Tom Brady, here’s Tom Brady getting sacked by a bunch of people:
