Members, Readers, and Lurkers alike:

Here is your one and only chance to get to join Dan Marino in Canton, OH for his sold out Enshrinement Ceremony on Sunday, August 7, 2005 at 1:00 PM EDT.

FinHeaven has three Dan Marino Hall of Fame Commencement Tickets and they can be yours*!

Here is what you have to do...
Submit us a picture of yourself showing us how much you love FinHeaven. Be creative!!! Remember, it's a photo of how much you love FINHEAVEN, not so much the Dolphins, but being that the Dolphins are what we are all about, you may include it in that theme!

Go nuts... except keep it TOS friendly (http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?t=1655). Submissions** will be posted in the main forum section of FinHeaven.com for the fans to see just how dedicated you are!

Any photos that are not within TOS (http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?t=1655) will be deleted and the user will not be allowed to win the contest.

We will contact the winner by either PM or e-mail, so be sure to be on alert at both places (if applicable) to find out if you won. Winner will also be posted in this thread. The tickets will then be overnighted to your location.

Submissions can be done in one of two ways. If you are a registered member, you can host/attach your photo to this thread (prefered). If you are a lurker (please, sign up and come talk with us!), you may e-mail your submission to contest@finheaven.com. Please allow a few hours for email submissions.

The Deadline is set for Tuesday, AUGUST 2nd at 10:00PM EST. However, please get your submissions in as soon as possible.

If you have any questions please PM myself, Muck, or TerryTate. You may also send an e-mail to admins@finheaven.com.

* Tickets are yours, transportation is not. If you can't get to Canton on Aug 7th, please don't participate in this contest. Thank you. :cool:

** Staff is prohibited from participating in this contest. :P

Well, we got our first email entry. A true Diehard FinHeaven fan. This guy went and got the FinHeaven mascot airbrushed onto his arm... which may last upto THREE months. Now, that's diehard!

http://www.finheaven.com/contest/BradleyP.jpg


You probably didn't want me to type all of this but I thought I would tell you why I like this site. For starters I'm the biggest dolphins fan there is. I loved this site ever since I first came here, now I come here three or four times a day because this is the best Miami Dolphins website on the internet, dolphin fans are so lucky to have a website like this, no other team has a site that updates every day, message board, camp reports, daily polls the list just keeps on going. I like how FinHeaven has changed the layout of the site, I really like the pic of the dolphin in the top left corner, you can tell I like it by the pic of me below.

[...]The tattoo in the pic I sent is not a real tattoo its a airbrushed tattoo that I got at Myrtle Beach 2 weeks ago. The tattoo will stay on my arm for about three months, I was going to get the Miami Dolphin logo tattoo but I printed off the FinHeaven logo and asked the guy doing the airbrushing if he could do that on my arm he said yes but it cost a little more since it was harder to do than most of his tattoos. Maybe in the future I might get a real tattoo of the FinHeaven logo, the logo is really cool and I don't think any one has seen a real tattoo like this.

Thanks A Lot

Dear FinHeaven,


They say a picture paints a thousand words, but the picture I have of my husband’s (NY_FinFan_72) descent into madness is far too graphic to be accurately depicted by the photograph I’ve submitted… thus, the following explanation/plea.


You see, I have become a widow of sorts, forced to tell the tale of his downward spiral for him, because he is no longer capable of communicating with the “real world”. This is the story of how a once productive man has wound up to be the lifeless body I now live with… all at the hands of FinHeaven.com.


When we met, he described himself as merely a Dolphins Fan. He actually once told me, he wasn’t into “all that junk” (the talk, the gear, the zombie like state most men slipped into between September and January; the same time they forgot they had children, wives, pets, a job. The time where brain cells of seemingly intelligent men became that of a 2 year old. ) And at first, it seemed harmless enough. Sundays and Mondays were devoted to him and I enjoying games together, in our home or at the bar scarfing down chicken wings and cokes, dressing up in 8 inches of clothing to drive to Buffalo to freeze our butts off and get heckled by obnoxious, drunk Bills fans, (talk about 2 year olds!), and once in awhile, I’d be forced to wear a jersey of someone who’s position I had no clue about (except for Olindo. That man has one damn job, why can’t he do it????) We’d go to Miami once a year for a game, which we used as our yearly vacation. Again, this I enjoyed, and it did not concern me really.


And then, I would ask him toward the end of a night game, was he coming to bed soon? He would reply, “soon, yes soon” but I would fall asleep only to be awoken by the smell of too many cigarettes, a sense of much time passed, and the soft murmurings of other’s names. Barely audible, I would strain to hear names, but would only hear what every woman dreads; “Go! Go longer! Do it! Go! Go! Go!”


About a year ago, I realized he was changing. During social events, whether it be complex or simple, he would often seem distracted, anxious, and impatient. He would pace and twitch as if he could not sit still, and when we finally got home he’d dash for the office and close the door… followed by a low sigh and then silence - except for the click, click, click of keyboard keys. Would I have to engage him in a 12 step program? What the hell was he doing in there?


And then, slowly, I realized, he did not speak in full sentences anymore. There were many “yup’s”, “nope’s” and “are you talking to me’s?” There were mugs and dishes piled everywhere, and he would still be in work clothes though he had had 2 days off. There were more Air Dr. cans (to keep his keyboard clean, and ready for action) on the desk than pens and pencils. Things such as soda cans, potato chip bags, empty wrappers from various late night snacks, empty cereal bowls, used silverware, stacks of Dolphins Digests, coffee cups, empty glasses with melted ice at the bottom, NoDoz, aspirin, vitamins, printouts of player stats and “mock drafts” (whatever the hell that is), Sports Illustrated magazines (new and old), and an overflowing ashtray were all in a 3 foot circle within reach of his computer chair. I told friends, “He’s on that web-site all the time! He literally must click that FinHeaven link 50 times a day (and I’m seriously being conservative with that guess). How much information can there be about one damn football team? What is there to talk about? Who are all these men that keep my husband up all night!? At least I could beat up another woman! What the hell am I supposed to do about THIS lover?”


I’d now go to bed saying good-night to an orange, teal, and white glow around an unmovable head, and focus my sleepy eyes in the morning to Sigs (what the hell is a Sig!!???) that he had made at 2:00 am the night before, and an angry dolphin logo in the upper left hand corner of the screen… your website… EVERY DAMN DAY AND NIGHT!!!


A man that once cooked now eats cold spaghettio’s out of a can with a spoon. A man who once had friends named John and Bob and Joe, now has friends named PhinPhreak, Nublar, and Muck.


A man who once covered himself in tattoos and bruises from being in the mosh pit of a Henry Rollins or Pantera show is now humming the Dolphin’s fight song in the shower! I need a road map to get through the piles of laundry just to leave my apartment. I have lists upon lists of things falling apart that need fixing as he visits a slice of FinHeaven every 10 freaking minutes, and when I ask, when will they be done? I am often told, “Just give me 5 more minutes… 5 more minutes”


I thought it would be in poor taste to take a picture at this point. I thought it would be like watching an addict in the throes of their addiction. No one wants to see that. I figured it would be a morbid look into the window of a home where there are CDs, shoes, hats, hangers, belts, banana peels, bags, underwear, autographed Dolphins photos, pictures from game trips, posters, plaques, jerseys, schedules, ticket stubs, pennants, signs, and more other Dolphins memorabilia than I can count… with my husband, in the middle of it all, on the floor, drooling, mumbling like a madman, seeing only visions of Dan Marino in a Cincinnati Ohio stadium. The man I once knew; a mere memory. And then I decided, if I didn’t provide a picture of some sort, no one would believe me!!!


I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way to break this cycle is to go straight to the source… FinHeaven.com. So here I am, BEGGING you to please help stop this madness. A few months ago he told me he wanted to go to Canton for Dan’s induction… and I said no. But honestly, even if I had said yes, I don’t think he would have gone because that would mean two or three days away from Fin-Freaking-Heaven. You see, the thing is, I’ve given up on him cleaning or doing any of the litany of things I’ve listed above that he no longer does. The problem is, I can’t get him out of the office room, and away from his computer and FinHeaven.com for 5 damn minutes to even attempt to try to clean around him. I SERIOUSLY CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!


I don’t know if there is a way for you to check and/or verify this, but he has to be on your site more than anyone else… he just HAS to be… and it has to stop… NOW!!!


The picture below is just a small glimpse into what I have described here. Not only is my husband the biggest Dolphin’s Fan I know, but he also has got to be the biggest FinHeaven fan on the planet. If there’s someone worse, I’d like to meet them (and their Wife, so we can start a support group).


He needs to win this contest, if for one reason, and one reason only… so I can reclaim my life, my office, and my apartment… even if only for a couple of days!!!


Oh, and maybe, just maybe, he’ll get this Dolphins/FinHeaven thing out of his system while he’s there… yeah right.


THIS IS 100% SERIOUS!!! PLEASE HELP!!!


Sincerely,


A_FinHeaven_Widow

Ok, this is going to take a little bit of explaining, as you can't actually SEE what I'm trying to get across.....

I love Finheaven so much, that while I was on a 2 week trip to China, I checked up on it EVERY chance I got. I could occassionally use the internet, and when I did i did not email my family or friends pictures as they requested....I checked finheaven :). I took my trusty laptop all across China (the picture on the left has me in red, that bag at my feet is my Targus backpack containing my laptop), and checked the on finheaven, every chance I got. Even while I was in the Yellow mountains (which is where both pictures are from), which was the most beautiful place on the face of this earth IMO.

That's right people..i carried finheaven across my back up a mountai that youahd to take a gondola up to the top to visit, i carried it on my back all the way up the great wall, through beijing, hanjo, and sanjo! Finheaven has been accessed across the entire world. I was there May 3rd-21st. You can check your logs for the IP's. The first 6 days should be from Beijing, you should have one from near sanjo, etc. Had to get my ricky news :)

As a matter of fact, I would not be surprised if by this time next week you and I have our own screen names and SIGS.

Ok, so it's bad enough my wife wrote that letter, selling me out... and it's even worse that I helped her upload a picture of me sleeping under my desk to go along with it, and then helped her post them both. But honestly, it has caused me to do some reflecting, and after going through some old posts of mine I think I've pinpointed when the "addiction" took complete and total hold. It was sometime in the middle of the night on December 23rd, 2004:


I Called In Sick To Work Because Of Finheaven!!!
OK, I haven't been on FinHeaven.com for very long... so here is a first: I called in sick to work today BECAUSE of FinHeaven.com!!! Let me explain...

Alright, so I was kind of wired yesterday, and couldn't sleep. Just waiting for my Tylenol PM to kick in, I was trolling my usual internet sites looking for 'Phins/Saban news, and got around to FinHeaven. Most of the threads were ones I had read earlier in the night, but I checked them anyway to see what had been added... then I noticed this thread.

My two Tylenol PM's were just starting to kick in, and I was getting a little tired, but the headline intrigued me, so I clicked it, saying to myself, "Ok, I'll read this real quick then I'll got bed". YEAH RIGHT!!!

I couldn't believe what I was reading. I've e-mailed lots of the Sports Writers down there in S. Florida, and never encountered anything like this. I mean "I don't even know why I'm taking the time to respond to you, but here it is:"??? Are you kidding me??? I'm thinking, "This guy got busted by one of the LEAST reputable sources for football information there is, and not only does he stoop to their level, he goes waaaaaaay below it... what a schmuck".

So like I said, I haven't been on FinHeaven all that long. I only started coming here after the PhinZone merger, and never really used the MB on PhinZone. That said, and in combination with the fact that I live up North, I new nothing about the "High FiveGate" situation that was referenced in this thread. Thankfully, Muck provided a link.

Now I was faced with a decision. I was getting really tired, really fast, but I wanted to know what this "High FiveGate" was all about. I figured, this thread was only three pages long, so how long could the "High FiveGate" thread be? So I clicked the link.

I was hooked from the first post by Mike, and honestly, I had no choice but to keep reading... I was that enthralled by the situation, but still had no idea how long the thread was. Well, as it turned out, it was 26 pages, 384 posts long, and I read EVRY WORD. At that point it wasn't because I WANTED to, it was because I HAD to!

THAT THREAD WAS THE ANTIDOTE FOR TYLENOL PM. The more I read, the more awake and jacked up I became. It was amazing. I can only say that I was I'd discovered FinHeaven sooner and had been around during that time. That thread and situation were both EPIC!!!

So, to make an already really long story short, as I read post #384 and finished the book... errrrr... thread, I looked at the clock and it said 3:47 AM. 10 years ago I could have worked on 2 hours of sleep, but not anymore. Also, when I got done, I remembered that I had taken 2 Tylenol PM's, which were now starting to reassert themselves. I knew I was doomed!

So I left a voicemail at work at 4:00 AM saying I was up puking and wouldn't be in, and then I went to bed, finally, still not believing all that I had just read... thus, the title "I CALLED IN SICK TO WORK BECAUSE OF FINHEAVEN".

I have to say that I have much respect for everyone from FinHeaven involved in the "High FiveGate" situation, and have a newfound respect for this site. That was awesome.

Well, "Gotta Go!"
:roflmao:
High Fives all around to FinHeaven!

http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?t=59706&page=3

The posts that follow mine are pretty funny. I guess this is when I should have realized I had a "problem". :D

Anyway, I was gonna come on here yesterday to tell you all that my wife was exaggerating, but the more I thought about, I realized she wasn't. Ouch.

I also wanted to say good luck to all who entered or may enter. No matter what happens with the contest, I'll still be here at 2am making SIGS, posting nonsense, and catching up on all things Dolphins.

I honestly don't know how I did it before FinHeaven. This is the greatest Dolphins site there is... period. All others have been erased from my favorites.

I do hope I win though... cuz I really don't wanna have to help clean this room!!! (it's still a mess)

Good Luck

After a huge summit of all the FinHeaven leaders... the winner has been announced.

All the entries were great. The airbrushed tattoo, the great Winds Beneath my Wings video, the dedication of checking FinHeaven across the world, and the pretty hilarious "Bull Riding" photo by Byroan. However, there was one entry that just showed some diehard dedication.

The FinHeaven Member that will be going to Canton is....

NY_FinFan_72 and Catherine!

Congratulations! Please PM me your address to where I can second day / over night the tickets to you! You officially have another reason to "call in sick."

The other winners - thank you for your submission. Stay dedicated to FinHeaven this season as there will be MANY more contests to come!

After a huge summit of all the FinHeaven leaders... the winner has been announced.

All the entries were great. The airbrushed tattoo, the great Winds Beneath my Wings video, the dedication of checking FinHeaven across the world, and the pretty hilarious "Bull Riding" photo by Byroan. However, there was one entry that just showed some diehard dedication.

The FinHeaven Member that will be going to Canton is....

NY_FinFan_72 and Catherine!

Congratulations! Please PM me your address to where I can second day / over night the tickets to you! You officially have another reason to "call in sick."

The other winners - thank you for your submission. Stay dedicated to FinHeaven this season as there will be MANY more contests to come!

Sincerely,
AJ

Congrats NY_FinFan_72! Have fun in Canton! U are truly a Die-Hard FinHeaven Fan!

OMG!!! Thank you FinHeaven sooooooo much!!! I am so psyched I can't stand it!!!

Wow, I guess letting my wife thoroughly embarass me on my favorite website truly paid off!!!

I'm bringing my Wife Catherine and my Mom, a lifelong Dolphins fan (and the reason I became a Dolphins fan... she was dressing me up in Czonka gear before I could even walk).

Anyway, as I said to AJ in my PM to him, one of my hobbies is video editing and production. Video and still cameras are allowed into the Ceremony, and I will be documenting our entire trip. When I get back and get everything edited down, I will make copies of the DVD available to anyone who wants one... it's the least I can do!!!

Again, thank you sooooo much. FinHeaven is the Greatest!!!

But now, I gotta go... I promised to clean if we won, so I better get crackin'!!!!!!!!

Edit: Anyone who wants to meet up, PM me. I think we're driving out Saturday. We'll be there on Sunday when the gates open. Obviously, you know where we're sitting. I'd look forward to meeting up with some of the FinHeaven faithful.

OK, I'm getting the evil eye... gotta go........

Ok, so it's bad enough my wife wrote that letter, selling me out... and it's even worse that I helped her upload a picture of me sleeping under my desk to go along with it, and then helped her post them both. But honestly, it has caused me to do some reflecting, and after going through some old posts of mine I think I've pinpointed when the "addiction" took complete and total hold. It was sometime in the middle of the night on December 23rd, 2004:

The posts that follow mine are pretty funny. I guess this is when I should have realized I had a "problem". :D

Anyway, I was gonna come on here yesterday to tell you all that my wife was exaggerating, but the more I thought about, I realized she wasn't. Ouch.

I also wanted to say good luck to all who entered or may enter. No matter what happens with the contest, I'll still be here at 2am making SIGS, posting nonsense, and catching up on all things Dolphins.

I honestly don't know how I did it before FinHeaven. This is the greatest Dolphins site there is... period. All others have been erased from my favorites.

I do hope I win though... cuz I really don't wanna have to help clean this room!!! (it's still a mess)

Good Luck

Mike

It gets better FF72, I used to go through the same thing, my wife would even sneak down late at night to see if I was on the site, she was so relieved when she found out I was only looking at porn. :lol: Luckily she hadn't come down a few minutes earlier I would have got caught replying to a post, how embarrasing.
