December 16th, 2007 - forever known as the day the Dolphins Frachise was saved from the possible 0-16 season.
We all know and remember the story to well, the Dolphins were the laughing stock of the league and not expected to even win a game after starting the season 0-13. Everyone was piling on from friends, to announcers and even sports radio broadcaster Jim Rome had a campaign going on but on this day it all had come to a complete hault.
At this point I personally had stopped watching games with friends and stayed home watching the games by myself, I live far away from Miami so I have always had the Sunday Ticket to enjoy all Dolphin games. It was the time of year for spiced rum and eggnog so that is what I had decided to drink and put back enough to make the game managable as I had almost lost all hope. The game wasn't pretty ... in fact we still even tried to give this game away *thank you Matt Stover for the missed FG's* So by the time Greg Camarillo had caugth the ball and was breaking towards the endzone I probably was jumping as high in the air as I ever had time and time again ... relieved and exhausted the phone calls came in from my brother and friends, mostly laughing at how excited i was over 1 win but I didn't care they would never know what as fans that season was like, it just felt so damn good to get that one win.
I can admit I didn't bust into tears like Wayne but I was close, like most of you here I live and die with the Dolphins and that is the season I never want to go through again. Its at this time that we should remind ourselves how lucky we are to have such a great organization to cheer for and that now we are talking PLAYOFFS two seasons in a row since that infamous season.
So my question to you is ... Where were you? what were you doing? Were you alone like myself drowning my sorrows or were you with other people or even at the game? Lets here it because that is a day as a phin fan I will never forget.
