NYC (Upper West Side)

I guess that's why I can't muster up much genuine passion for the Bills-Dolphins rivalry. It's always the Jets I hate to see winning.

My favorite Jets memory: losing the AFC title game in Miami in the mud. AJ Duhe was my favorite player (remember him?).

I can still recall one of the local TV station's guys, Spencer Christian, doing a live remote from the Miami airport after the game as the Jets were boarding their flight back. Pouting, whining. He actually said "The better team didn't win today."

It was sweet.

I also live on the Upper West Side! Luckily I only have 2 and a half more years in NYC. I hate this dump!

I spent quite a bit of time up there... I was stationed in Saratoga Springs for a year back in '97-'98, and really liked it up there (except for the weather)

Had a fine o' time Monday night. ME and one other Phins fan in the bar (wearing a Ricky Jersey) he spent the entire night playing some dumb video game and only looked up when I was yelling "RUN RICKY RUN" :shakeno:

I live on Long Island and the best thing I ever did was get Direct TV about 3 years ago....don't have to hang out in a bar with loud jet fans.....its tough enough with all the newspapers and radio proclaiming every year that Gang Green will be Super....but it is what we must deal with....I go to training camp for the past 4 years(the wife is great about it) and try to get to at least one game a year.....nice to know there are other fin fans close

Ohh man, that place gets Crazy during the summer, I rented out 2 rooms duing the track season for 1000/wk. It paid our rent there for 3 months (LOL):lol:

I think it was 4 years ago that I worked there for the summer. Best summer job ever! I got paid 10 an hour to serve beer, and could bet on all the races, and walk around the place for half the day. I hit an exacta on a horse named skull buster. He was a 75-1 longshot. It covered all my leisure money for the whole next semester in college.

The other big perk of the job was we would buy a keg about 3 times week from the beer tent, and charge 5 bucks a cup in the employee parking lot after the races. We would stumble home, and then hit downtown a few hours later. Oh college was grand.

I wish I had heard that song. I went to the University of Buffalo, but went back to Saratoga for the summers.

I live in Westchester County, NY (1/2 hour North of NYC). I usually catch the Dolphins games at a Sports Bar in Central Westchester (White Plains to be exact) where they have a good Dolphins following of at least 6 guys. It's cool 'cos we're all regulars and we usually get a whole room to ourselves so the Management hooks us up by letting us have sound (even with 3 other screens with different FB games in the room).

I went to my first ever Dolphins game in September when we crushed the Jets at Pro Player Stadium!!! Ohh!! Was that sweet!!! Going down to Miami this weekend for the Raiders game and hoping for a similar outcome!!!

Go Dolphins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its a suburb by distance, but it takes 2 hours to get there with all the traffic in CT. I drove to Providence in November, and we were stuck in CT traffic for a good 2 hours.

I'm in NYC

I went blue in the face saying this last year. I don't care if you have DirecTV or not, but it would be great to have a bar where we can get SOUND. I mean it people. If we band together we can do this. There are always large numbers of other fans (Philly, Pittsburgh, New England to name a few) that use numbers to get their way. You even see Jets fans clogging the bars for away games. I don't see why we can't do the same with a little collective action.

There are two selfish reasons for dreaming of Dolphins Shangri-la...

1. Collateral damage caused by my excessive celebration has the potential destroy my apartment. I was almost done by the small celebratory fire I started in my room after the win in week 3.

2. Call me a pessimist, but my refrigerator will not hold enough beer to console me in the event of a loss to the fundamentally unholy and evil Jets. Woe be to that forsaken scum of the earth.
