    Wanted to share with you guys a little positivity in the Dolphins world!
    I help run DolfansNYC the New York City Miami Dolphins fan club. We have a huge crew that meets up every week at Slattery's Midtown Pub (our old bar Third & Long closed sadly) but our biggest event of the year is when the Dolphins play the Jets in New Jersey. We have done this for five years in a row now and it gets bigger and bigger every year. Last year we bought 199 tickets as a group and you could hear "LETS GO DOLPHINS" clearly on TV. It was amazing but it doesn't come close to this year.

    This year we have sold 760 tickets!!!!! We are all going to all be sitting together in two sections (323 and 322) and we are going to be throwing a massive tailgate as well. We ended up getting people super cheap tickets and still making a little bit of money and we will be donating it to charity. Since last year we have donated nearly $10,000 to charity. It's a pretty amazing thing.

    I just thought you guys would like some good news for a change.

    If anyone is going to be at the game we are going to be hanging out in Parking Lot L. You need a Yellow pass to park near us but you are welcome to walk over. BYOF/B because our tailgate sold out long ago.

    Also, if anyone wants to go with us there are some tickets in 322 on StubHub but we are all sold out. Hope to meet some of you guys there!

    You forgot to mention that we will all be waving orange rally towels so if they every pan up to our section you are going to see a huge block of orange in the middle of a sea of green.

    What makes you think they aren't? There are more "passionate" Dolfans in South Florida than anywhere in the world.

    Passionate doesn't translate to buying tickets no matter what the season has been like

    I signed up for food and booze. Does the beer usually run out pretty quickly? If so I might bring a couple extra.

    Last year I had Jets fans offering me free tickets because of Sandy when I was walking into the game. Wish I could make it this year. Hope you guys have fun and I'll try and make it up again next year.

    I was gonna buy tickets for the takeover section..... BUT I have a friend who's a Jets fan and he wanted to come so that wouldn't be nice. He's still out numbered in our group that's going 7 to 1 lol

    Maybe we will take a walk over.

    It's two PBRs and one Sailor Jerry rum drink per person. If you want more than that you are more than welcome to bring your own.

    Oh yeah, the Jets hooked us up.

    ---------- Post added at 02:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:15 PM ----------

    We spread it around. Lots goes to the Miami Dolphins Foundation, we raised around $4k for Sandy relief efforts last year, we support the Dolphins Cycling Challenge and several cancer charities in October.

    Just got word that Solo D is going to be performing at the tailgate too! Should be awesome.

    You also got food and a ride to the game for $35. We are actually losing money on that part. Would have been worse if I didn't find us booze sponsors.

    Just bustin' balls. I applaud your gatherings. Sounds like you guys always have a hell of a time. Passionate finfans are the best. One of these years, I will make it up there and share a PBR and fins victory with you guys. :brewskis:
