The Greatest Day

Today is Monday September 21, 2009, the day I’ve been waiting for since the saddest day in Dolphin history, July 21, 2008.


The bright stadium lights shined away. The cool night walked among us. Partly couldy with a smooth breeze blowing. The night was perect, perfect for football. A helmet sits on the ground, the stadium lights are bright and makes it hard to tell what the helmet said. A tall figure, 6'06, 225 pound emerges next to the helmet and lifts it off the ground. As the helmet moves towards the figures head the lights fade away allowing us to see a Dolphins Logo on the side of the helmet.


The figure puts on the helmet and waits patiently his turn to enter the field. He will be the last person to run into the field. Finally, his turn comes. He takes a deep breath and runs onto the field never looking back. A sold-out house awaits him, nothing but aqua and orange surrounds him. As he runs onto the field, you begin to see his jersey. The beautiful aqua color coming off strong. The number 99 bares on his back loud and proud and his name reads Taylor.


The stadium will go crazy. It will be the best memory to ever be recorded into my skull. The moment JT enters the field my lungs will burn from screaming, my mouth will dry up and my eyes will water, but I won’t care. This will only happen once in a life time. The crowd will chant JT, JT, JT......


The game will kick off and JT will run over the Colts. Manning will find his face on the ground everytime JT hits the field. The day will be capped off with a very comfortable win. I will kiss the girl next to me and I will hug the stranger in front of me. The crowd will sing along to the Miami Dolphins song.


We still have a month until this much anticipated return. But I will be ready. The stores will flood with people getting ready for their tailgate parties. Football will be in the air once again for Miami. Every night before I go to bed I cross out a day and day by day September 21 will come and I’ll be ready, will you?


I, like all Dolphins fans will celebrate his return. His name is Jason Taylor.




No I'm not a physic I can not predict the future, but hell that would be a beautiful story. No?
