Dateline..January 17, 1993
Miami Dolphins play in their 7th AFC Championship in the last 22 years...
Who could imagine at the time that over 10 years would pass without Miami playing in another AFC Championship game? Especially considering that the Dolphins had made it that far 6 times from 1971 to 1985. To make the fact all that much more disgusting is to see all of the other teams that have made it the AFC title game since that day...
Wow, that's pretty sad for a franchise with such a rich history. I was just short of my 21st Birthday the last time the Fins made it to the AFC title game...now I'm 32 years old! I can't believe it's been that long! There are 11 yr old kids running around right now that weren't even born the last time MIami made it! :cry:
The sad realization is that all I want is the Dolphins to do is make it to the AFC Championship ..much less the Super Bowl. That would make me happy. Almost every other team in the AFC has made it that far since our last time. The freakin' Jaguars were an expansion team in 1995 and they've made it TWICE!
Of course, I want Miami to win the SuperBowl, but since it's been so long I have lowered expectations. When will it be our turn? What has happened to my beloved franchise?
