I especially enjoyed watching the Dolphins play this past Sunday!
Of course, there were the obvious reasons; great game, Miami win, etc... But also because I got to share this Miami win with some friends of mine in Denver. When you live outside of Miami, it is sometimes challenging to find other Miami fans to sit down with, have a beer, watch the game, and root for our Fins. So I left Southern California on Friday evening and rolled into Denver just in time to catch the game with some real, live Fin Fans!
And how sweet a victory it was!
But something else that is interesting is that when you are actually watching the game with friends, you talk about stuff more than if you just happen to be sitting next to some guy in a sports bar. You know, "stuff". Dolphins "stuff". Like the offseason moves and Greg Camarillo's two famous catches (c'mon, you know - the OT TD in the 1-15 season, and the incredible "***-catch"); or the confusion we shared when we drafted a whole family with one draft pick, and how much we could use "Crash" Jensen on Special Teams today.
It was awesome!
But it also got me watching the Dolphins game play a bit differently. Kind of looking at the progress we have made over the past few seasons, but also seeing the evolution of the team as well.
