    I guess you could call this is an introduction thread.

    Been a member of this forum for a while, just never really posted. I just bought Dolphins season tickets, honestly I can't say I ever actually liked the Dolphins, mostly due in part to my extreme hate for Huizinga (I'm a Marlins fan ;)).

    There's two kinds of Marlins fans, those who love the Marlins and hate the Fins and those who love both, I guess I was one of the former up until recently. I've been a Marlins season ticket holder since 2000, moved to South Florida around 1998. I've always watched the Dolphins, just was never really a fan or truly rooted for them.

    Ed Perry actually used to be a neighbor of mine when I lived in Weston. Don't get me wrong, this was no million dollar neighborhood either, it was in the Meadows, he lived a few houses down from me in a modest 3 bedroom 1 story ranch house, he was a really nice guy and I used to walk his golden retriever for him. He lived with his girlfriend, but I guess now they're married with a baby. I moved out of Weston and into Palm Beach County around 2002 or so, not sure if Ed Perry still lives there or not.

    I was just browsing the Dolphins website last night at 2am and figured i'd look at the season tickets page just for the hell of it with no intentions of buying, then I saw how incredibly cheap season tickets were in pretty damn good seats (upper deck, sidelines right around the 40 yard line).

    So that's my introduction thread. It's good to be a Dolfan now :).

    This is my first post, so don't shoot me if I posted it in the wrong section :eek:.

    Welcome to the world of being a Dolphin fan and welcome to the best phins messageboard on the net.

    Never heard of anyone buying season tickets for something/some team they were not a fan of, but guess theres a first for everything.

    Yeah, it sounds pretty crazy now that I read over my post. I guess my hate for Huizinga was clouding my judgement ;).

    Welcome:www: :welcome:

    I use to get mad because the Marlins always beat my Phils....looks like the NL East is gonna be a great fight till the end. I just wish the Marlins would get their own stadium. By the way, how much does season tickets cost. It takes years to get season tickets at Mile High at Invesco to see the Donkeys up the road from me.

    Well, since we are both dolphin fans, if your judgement ever becomes clouded again, you can count on me to take those season tickets off your hands

    Just like in the brawl last year :lol:.

    They were $620 per seat for the entire season including two pre-season games. They're sideline in the upperdeck right around the 40 yard line on the visitors side, I heard the sun is pretty bad on that side, but there weren't any good seats available on the home side. I had to downgrade my current Marlins seats to be able to afford it, but it's all good :D.

    I actually root for the Marlins to constantly lose, just so the Dolphins don't have to deal with the dirt come the MLB playoffs.

    I would be wearing lots of sun screen and have one of those suits filled with cold water....can you guys leave your seats to have some keggers at halftime?...some stadiums wont let you leave and come back until after the 3rd quarter. I hate all the rules these security people put you through. :rolleyes:

    Wow the Braves won 13 (about to be 14) straight East Titles. And how many World Series is that? That's what I thought!!!! The Marlins have twice as many World Series Titles than the Braves.

    I'm pretty used to all of the brutal 1:05 Marlins games, so i'll be good to go. Hopefully there's a breeze in the upperdeck :rofl3:.

    Yeah I was thinking maybe Huizenga could open his wallet and put a retractable roof on the stadium so that in the early part of the season it would be bearable for the fans??? I know the temperatures dont go down that much later on but it would not be as hot and humid in Nov/Dec as it is in September. The good news is that the heat and humidity should kill teams like the Denver Broncos coming to Miami on week one. :lol:
