Just thought it would be cool to find out some people's first ever experiences with the Dolphins.

For me it was a Dec. game in either 90 or 91 game against the Jets on Sunday night football. The Jets were winning 17-10 when Marino hit Tony Martin with a WR screen and he went all the way... Stoyo MISSED the xtra point and the camera caught Pete Carroll doing the "Choke" sign on the sidelines. The Fins D forced a 3 and out and Marino lead the team down the field with about 1:30 left on the clock and Pete hit the game winning FG with next to no time left. What an unbelieveable game and feeling it was to see that field and stadium in person and not on TV, especially when your 11-12 years old.​

that would have been a great game to see.

the first tv game i remember was 55-14 over the cardinals.

first live game: '84 in indy. the colts were up 17-7 at halftime and the place was going nuts. i was not pleased. marino threw 4 td's in the second half and we went home happy. 35-17 phins.

the only game i have seen is the world bowl at wembley against the 49 ers--not much I know but I treasure that day--and i was lucky enough to actually see Marino play, all be it for only a Qtr--To cap it off we beat them so i have a 100% winning record when watching them live--I hate my sister cause she actually seen em play at J Robbie--I still got the game programme--they lost 38 -31 to the jets

My first Dolphin game was in 1996 when they lost to the Eagles up in Philly 35-28. My first game in Miami was the 2000 playoff game when the Fins beat the Colts 23-17 in overtime. Those were my first two games and since then I have been to three more Miami home games. The 2001 game against the Falcons, the 2003 game against the Jets and the 2004 game against the Titans.

This year the week I can come down to Florida is the week Miami plays the Buccaneers. Hopefully I can get tickets to that game.

Sorta. It depends who they are playing that week. If they are playing a big team like the Jets or Patriots, tickets will go fast, but if they are playing a team like the Cardinals they practicly beg you to take them. My recomendation is to be on ticket master right when they go on sale, which will be sometime in July.

mine was 98 or 99. Tennessee at miami. Marino was on the sideline and Damon Huard was throwing the rock. Miami won 17-0. Madison abused mcnair for 3 picks. everything was going right for miami, even huards lame duck that shot up into the air was a completion.

Live in Ct so my first dolphins game was against the pats in old foxb-. Spent a couple of hours messing around witht he nfl experience in the parking lot. Ate like 15 sausage and pepper sandwiches and didnt' get sick. i remember a sign, hey jimmy guess what terry is playing. Lost that game. Someone poured beer on me. Took two hourse to get out of the parking lot. Went three years in a row after that,, did not win a single game. Hate the pats period. Plan on making a trip to florida this year.. Not sure which game we will be going to.
