Jenny from the block
For those who don’t know me well, I’m a Miami Dolphins fan. Have been since that fateful day I born and the dolphins played the packers…they lost, but that’s not the point. The franchise has had its fair share of fumbles lately, but I have stayed steadfast in my loyalty. Not caving to the Western NY theme of “following the Bills only because I live here”.
Things took a turn for the worse when Marino’s career was cut short by a running coach and then he was slaughtered by the Browns. (I was at that game; ask me sometime, I have quite the story of it). We have been on shaky ground since Marino retired and the team has gone through coaches faster than Brittany Spears has mental breakdowns.
The addition of Parcells last year as VP of Football Operations did not make me a happy camper. And then there was the $62 million dollar deal they struck with rookie Jake Long. But what put me over the top was the whole throw-down between Mr. VP of Football Operations and the well respected talents of Jason Taylor. YOU DON’T JUST THROW OUT YOUR BEST DEFENSIVE END. All in all, I must admit, the 2008-2009 season went far better than expected. Though it wasn’t hard to top; we came away from the 2007-2008 season with just one win.
With the unexpected turnaround and the playoff bearth last season, I had high hopes this time around.
Until yesterday. Alas, another MAJOR setback. And this time it’s in the form of a skinny, Latin singer. Marc Anthony has joined as a partner in the Miami Dolphin franchise. You have got to be kidding me!! Are we that desperate that we need to strike up contracts with mediocre singers who only happen to be famous because of the gigantic, junk in your trunk arse that they married?
Shocking as this is, he will perform during one of the home games. Do you think that was part of the deal? There are his laywers, sitting in the board room running numbers and he comes out with, “I’ll only invest Jennifer’s money if you let me sing during a game”.
Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I’ve got, I’m still…I’m still Jenny from the block. Listen Lady, pick up your husband, return to your block, and then purchase a buns of steel workout video.
I’m sure this will prove to be another fruitful season.
