By Miami Dolphins Football Tickets Staff Writer: R. Murray
The Miami Dolphins:
The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football team who are based in the Miami metropolitan area. This rockin' team is part of the Eastern Division of the AFC (American Football Congerence) in the NFL (National Football League). Their home games are played at Sun Life Stadium which is the in the northern suburb of Miami Gardens.
The team made its first Super Bowl appearance in Super Bowl VI, but lost to the Dallas Cowboys 24-3.
The Miami Dolphins Stadiums:
The Dolphins originally played all home games in the Orange Bowl in Miami. The Miami Dolphins then moved to the new Joe Robbie Stadium after the 1986 season. Later the stadium's name was changed to Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, LandShark Stadium, and, as of January 2010, Sun Life Stadium. The facility is located in Miami Gardens, a suburb of Miami located approximately 15 miles (24 km) north of downtown Miami.
The Miami Dolphins Training:
The St. Petersburg Beach hosted the Dolphins' first training camp in 1966. The Dolphins trained in Miami Gardens at Biscayne College, later renamed St. Thomas University, from 1970 until 1993. The players were housed next to Sea World.
Then, i 1993, the Dolphins opened the Miami Dolphins Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. In 2006, the facility added a domed field which allows the team to practice during thunderstorms which are common during the summer.
Miami Dolphins Fight Song:
The song was written and composed by Lee Ofman. Ofman approached the Dolphins with it before the 1972 season because he wanted music to inspire his favorite team. The fight song would ACTUALLY serve as a good luck charm for the Dolphins that season. The Dolphins became the first team in NFL history to record an undefeated season, going 17–0 en route to victory over the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl VII. WOO!
The Dolphins revealed a new fight song by T-Pain & Jimmy Buffett featuring Pitbull on August 7, 2009 which was introduced for the '09/10 NFL season. The fight song was played during the preseason home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars on August 17, 2009, but was not played during the second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers on August 22, 2009 after being booed heavily in the first game. Furthermore, the team has preferred to play Buffett's song "Fins" after scores during the 2009 regular season instead of the traditional fight song. The Dolphins shorthand nickname, "The Fins," has been recognized and used by the team. Anyway, everyone knows T-Pain pumps people up.
The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders:
The team's cheerleaders are known collectively as the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders. The company had its debut in 1978 as the Dolphins Starbrites. (The name referred to the co-sponsor, Starbrite Car Polish.) The cheerleaders' founding choreographer was June Taylor, famed colleague of Jackie Gleason, who led the squad until her retirement in 1990. The Dolphin Dolls, a 125-member pep squad of girls aged 8 to 18, cheered the team at home games from 1966 to 1977. Cuties!!
