As bad as the Dolphins have been I have been amazed at how Dolfans NYC has continued to show up. On Sunday against a terrible Broncos the bar was packed by halftime. When the game started there were only about a dozen of us and I figured it was going to be empty but by God you guys kept showing up and we had a great time comiserating about the team and discussing the future. When you blow a game like that it’s really nice to be surrounded by people who feel your pain.
It took me a while to get over losing to the Jets and finally put these photos up but I have some great pictures for you.
First off we had our Nat Moore meet and greet event last Sunday. If you weren’t there Nat Moore came by to watch football with us. We had a raffle and raised some money for charity. Third and Long paid for food for everyone and Nat talked with everyone and signed autographs. He was really great and I cannot thank him enough. I know everyone there really apreciated it and I was really impressed with the turn out considering the Dolphins weren’t even playing.
The second batch of photos I have for you is from our amazing tailgate at the Jets game. We didn’t sell as many tickets as we were hoping but we still had more than 50 people all in the same section at the game and we had a lot more than that at the tailgate. We met people from all over the country and sold them a bunch of Dolfans NYC t-shirts (all the money goes to charity) to take home with them and rep in Miami and all over the place. A couple of guys were even in town from Belgium! Very cool. The game of course was a disaster but we held strong and most of us were still left in our seats when the whistle sounded. We had some fun after the game too but I think we will just leave it at that…
I am posting two galleries below. The top one is from the Nat Moore event at Third & Long and the bottom one is from the Monday Night Football tailgate at the Meadowlands. If you want a copy of a photo just double click on it in the slideshow and it will take you to the gallery.Â Go Dolphins!
Last Sunday, Miami Dolphins legend Nat Moore paid a visit to Third and Long, the home of DolfansNYC. The bar was packed with aqua-and-orange, and Nat took the time out to sign autographs and pose for pictures with every fan, helping us raise several hundred dollars for charity.
Afterwards, the former Pro Bowl wide receiver, whose name is prominent in the team record books, joined us on the podcast to discuss some of his career highlights and favorite memories; catching passes from Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks Bob Griese and Dan Marino; the goals of the Nat Moore Foundation; and his impressions of DolfansNYC.
I hope you guys are getting ready for this weekend! We got a lot going on and we are playing the Jets. Anyone who knows Dolfans NYC knows that we are nearly as anti-Jets as we are pro-Dolphins.Â As a club we are 3-0 in group trips to Giants Stadium so we are ready to make it 4-0 and 5-0 in a few weeks…
Just wanted to remind you guys about things and update you on the tailgate situation.Â We plan on tailgaiting in the GREEN section. We have a little bit of food and a grill but it’s BYO all the way this year. We will be set up around 5pm and we will be emailing people once we have an exact spot so if you want on that email list hit up Dolfansnyc@gmail.com and we will hit you up as soon as we have a tailgate spot.
I also want to make sure everyone is coming out on Sunday at 1pm to Third & Long. I know the Dolphins aren’t playing but Dolphins great Nat Moore will be there hanging out and signing autographs. Wear your Dolphins colors because MiamiDolphins.com will be there filming a video about the club.Â We should have a raffle and giveaways and stuff and we can watch the Giants beat the Bills or one of the other 1pm games.
See you guys there and at Met Life Stadium on Monday! Go Dolphins!
