    For those of you who don't know about DolfansNYC we are the Dolphins fan club in New York City. We started in 2008 after our group of about 10 swelled to about 35 by the time we made the playoffs. We meet weekly at a bar in the city called Third & Long. We do a trip to the Meadowland every year (Twice last year when the Phins played the Giants away) but this year was BY FAR our biggest trip. We bought 199 tickets in two sections as a group but TONS of other Phins fans bought tickets near us. We brought two buses from Third & Long and way more people met us there. We had a MASSIVE tailgate and then went inside and harassed the hell out of Jets fans without them being able to do anything about it. It was amazing. At the end of the game all the Jets fans left and you could just hear us. If you heard the "Let's Go Dolphins" chants on TV in the 4th quarter that was us.

    The cool part of the tailgate was that Stephen Ross showed up with Fergie, Mike Dee, Nat Moore, and a bunch of cheerleaders. Andy Kent was there to write about it. They were all really cool and posed for pictures and signed autographs. It was a great time.

    Here are a few pictures from the tailgate, but you can read more and see all of my pictures here. I am a professional photographer in my real life so I took a TON of shots. Enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing. Gave me goosebumps, especially the one with Mr. Ross hanging out with the fans, you don't see that too often. We clearly have an owner that cares about our team.

    Jealous. This would definitely be worth the trip from Oklahoma to NYC next year. I have a good friend who's a Dolphins fan as well as his little brother so we travel to a game once a year to watch them play. This would be freaking awesome though.

    Why is there a stupid Mets logo on that dolphin? Don't you know they're the Jets of MLB?

    Absolutely awesome. I've always been worried about travelling to New York to see a Dolphins game. Maybe I'll head down from Toronto if this thing happens next year too! I love heading into enemy territory.

    A lot of people came down from Canada. A bunch of people drove back to MTL and Toronto after flights were canceled because of the storm.

    It's not a Mets logo. It's actually in the same font that's used for the M on the Phins helmet... just NY because we are the NY club obviously.

    That is some cool ****. As for the owner/s and his entourage, that **** matters. Alot of posters here were saying how Ross just cares about this and that, and not winning games. But when a NFL ****ing OWNER shows up at a TAILGATE party, its a very cool thing.

    Also in your first picture, who let Cheech into the party?:rob19:

    Laughing and pointing at the Jets fan was a classic shot. Great job.
