    Official "Little Known Dolphins' Facts" Thread

    A little idea I came up with. A thread where anyone can post a little known fact about Dolphins. I happened to have found a few.

    1. The Miami Dolphins are the first team to appear in three consecutive Super Bowls (71, 72, 73) and the first AFL/AFC to win back-to-back Super Bowls.

    2. Vonnie Holliday's name is parodied in the non-NFL football game Blitz: The League. One of the superstars in the game, a defensive back, is named Vonnie Treonday.

    3. Volume 15 of the manga Eyeshield 21, a picture of Ricky Williams, and his previous dreadlocked appearance may be the inspiration behind a character int he series, Agon Kongo.

    :eek: :eek: - Pretty sure I dont have any idea what this is about.

    Okay, I will submit a little to this:

    Mariners, Marauders, Mustangs, Missiles, Moons, Sharks, Suns were all names submitted as possibilities for the Miami franchise, but of course none could compare to the grace, strength and smarts of a dolphin:wink:

    Hehehe, I only heard about Eyeshield a couple of days ago. But I do plan on picking up the anime on DVD as soon as I get the cash.

    If you've been a Dolphin fan for any appreciable period of time this is not anywhere close to a little known fact.

    That's not really true. The Bills went to three straight Super Bowls as well.

    Actually, the Bills went to 4 straight SuperBowls.

    The Dolphins are the only expansion team in NFL history to win a SuperBowl. In '72, since no teams had entered since the Phins in '66, they were still considered an expansion team. Just a cool thought.
    The record would not have been broken had the defenders been able to cover receivers like they did in 1984.

    In the show Mystery Science Theater 3000 season 9 episode 10 "The Final Sacrifice", Nelson and the bots make several Csonka references as the main character finds a picture of a guy that looks like him
