Mission Accomplished

Wow. I feel high right now. After all the games this season that have gone down to the wire, after all the injuries, after all the giant British JT robots, we finally did it. Cleo Lemon had a hell of a game and the defense came through in spades. It wasn't perfect, but the days of criticizing Dolphin wins is over.

After our only win this season, I got bombarded with emails about people relating their feelings and experiences about it. I had a really great time reading all the emails and comments and it reminded me how important this team is to all of us. It also reminded me of the alarmingly high number of grown men who can be brought to tears by one great game. Here are some of them.

"I couldn't help it. I had tears after this one. It was awesome! I've never screamed at my tv as much as I was on that last play. I wonder if Camarillo could hear me telling him to run? I was hollering loud enough for him to, even if I do live in south Louisiana."

"i had to listen to the whole game on the radio cuz i was drivin home from palm beach. on the missed field goal and the last play i nearly ran off the highway haha"

"Being in "Buccaneerland", the closest I got to seeing the game was watching the scores on the bottom of the screen. In a house full of non-Dolphins fans, I jumped up, threw my hands up and screamed "WE ARE NO LONGER WINLESS!!!"

"I had to go to a bar with the NFL TICKET yesterday cause we don't get PHIN games in Orlando...Anyways I had to beg the bartender to put the game on, and Dolphin fans sometimes get heckled in this bar.But by the end of game the game was on the 3 screens behind the bar and everyone was on the edge of their seats, and man when Cleo aired it up.Everyone was screaming and clapping.Awesome!"

"I was screaming and jumping up and down while Camarillo ran down the field. I was going nuts. Even my husband and our neighbor (a Jets Fan and Raiders Fan) were excited for them!! WAHOO!!!"

"I didn't yell that loud since i dropped a 45 pound dumbell on my foot. i was sooooooooo loud.
haha IT was soooooooooo sweet. Never thought i wuld be so happy that were one and thirteen."

"Yep...Awesome finish!!! All I wanted was to win 1 game now LOL Now that we did it...Do I get a date with one of the Miami Cheerleaders of my choice???"

"I am the happiest gal on earth! You should have seen the stadium, it was like we DID win the superbowl!"

"1-13 never felt so GOOOD!"

"dudeeeeee. 1-13!!!!! if i was a girl id ask jason taylor to get me pregnant"

"Thank god we got the "W". So happy I got to catch the end of the game out here on the Big Island (Hawaii). Whew...I was getting worried."

"I smell a comeback, i think if we keep this winning streak going (yes, it counts as a streak), and if we pay the right people, or do what the pats do... i can see us make it to this year's superbowl...
just maybe..."


We did it. We're not the worst team of all time. Now all we have to do is beat the Patriots and it won't be a lost season. Also as a tip to help them accomplish this.....

Pass to Greg Camarillo More Often 
The shocking play that ended the game was even more shocking because the player who did it was someone I didn't even know was on our active roster. It appears he can catch. Perhaps throwing to him in the future might work.

Have Jason Taylor Fight Cam Cameron to the Death

The last two games against the Bills and Jets confirmed what many had suspected, that the Dolphins have actually become worse as the season has gone on, regressing from a semi-competitive team who couldn’t catch a break into a laughable blooper reel of a team who only serves to give easy wins to otherwise terrible teams. Aside from their on-field play getting worse, there are signs of division off the field, the biggest of which seems to be the growing rift between Jason Taylor and coach Cam Cameron. A team cannot expect to succeed with its only healthy star feuding with its coach, which leaves one rational decision.

Have Jason Taylor Fight Cam Cameron to the Death 

Since the dawn of time, fights to the death have been used successfully to settle feuds. There is no way to know who would win this battle, but it’s clear that one of them needs to stay with the team and one of them needs to die. Their fight should be held at Dolphin Stadium so for once this season, Dolphin fans can leave the stadium with smiles on their faces.
