LIFER.........

I love the Fins!! It started in a very tender age, before I even knew what I was rooting for. But, it was 1985 when I attended my Fins game at the long gone Pontiac Silverdome Vs the still lowly Lions. As fate would have it, the Fins lost....but the hook was set.......for me. Many seasons, many games, and many stories ( some, OK, alot are on the crazy side) have pasted. Three seasons ago, I was able watch the Fins in Cleveland and Buffalo, and two more games back to back down here in Miami. 4 games in one season, not bad for a Fins fan from Toledo, Ohio!! At the time it was my personal record. On that trip down I got engaged, met Don Shula, Zack Thomas, Wes Welker, Rob Konrad, Manny Frenadez, and a few others. I also got a tattoo, a large tattoo, a Fins tattoo.......I'M A LIFER!!!!

Now, two seasons ago I began to travel with my job. I can go anywhere I want to go and where do I decide to spend the football season?? Where else South Florida,........I'M A LIFER!! 5 games that year, the year of shit (1-15). I never let them beat me down, years of unrulely fans dumping their shit on me has left me unfazed by anything anyone could say.......EVER.

Now, we come to this year, a year of uncertainy, and just look at us! A game above .500 and hope is back!! To me, every game seems like a playoff game, every game brings us more respectability. Soon, very soon, teams will fear the Fins. I am happier than ever to be a LIFER!!!!
