I'm pretty new to this site, but I've been posting a little while here now. I'm trying to get a better grasp of the other regular here so I know who I'm chatting/arguing with. A little background on me: I'm 32 years old, my wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary earlier this year in Key West. We have 2 wonderful boys (8 and 5) who are next in line Dolphin fans. We live all the way up in Seattle, WA. Pretty tough to get regional coverage of a Dolphin's game up here, go figure. Thank god for overpriced Sunday Ticket. I was born in Detroit, MI and my mom (RIP) and I escaped to Orlando, FL before my 1st birthday. I've been a loyal Dolphin and Hurricane fan my whole life. My mom re-married and we moved to Pittsburgh, PA when I was 10 years old, talk about culture shock! I lived there throughout my high school years and joined the Army as an 18 year old punk. That brought me out to the Seattle area where I met my wife......been stuck here ever since. I did my 3 years in the army and a 5 year stint at the airport. I've spent the last 10 years or so trying to convince the ol' lady to move to the Sunshine state. We'll get there eventually. Anyways, these days I'm a union sheet metal worker, but I've been exploring other job opportunities due to the death of commercial construction here. Most will probably glance at this and not give it much thought, but football is my religion and I just wanted to get some perspective on who I'm chatting with. Mike Mandia
