Welcome to the Hype Machine!

When was the last time the Dolphins have received positive publicity? Last I recall we were part of bunch known as the laughing stock of the NFL. Has our fortune changed? Seems as though the media, players and fans are all buying in to the Phins program. In a sense, we have gone from laughing stock, to high stock. Players want to play for Miami. When did that happen? They must be drinking the Joe Philbin kool-aid or something because in the past decade all I seem to remember is the complete opposite. Either that or players are trying to cash in on the deep pockets of Stephen Ross during this off-season that was the Jeff Ireland shopping spree.

Either way, we are building something special here. We have been pretty hyped up by the media, but I still think we are flying under the radar. Nobody expects us to overthrow the Patriots, not this year anyway. Well, I say "WHY NOT US?" "WHY NOT NOW?" The beast of the AFC East is wounded, so our time is NOW. I will take my hat off to Bellichick and the Patriots if they can overcome the losses of almost all of their key contributors on offense. The way I see it is 1st and 2nd place are interchangeable at this point in time, obviously between the Pats and Phins. Most of you would agree that Buffalo and NY are not relevant this year, but there are always surprises in the NFL.

As the author of Phin Wars and epic and forgettable fails such as MIAtrix, it has become clear to you all and myself that my view on posting on behalf of the Dolphins is a hobby of mine, but I like to combine my other interests into my love for the Dolphins. Without further ado, my latest endeavor. If you're into classic rock, you'll pick up on this pretty quickly.

Where has this been? It's alright we know where it's been

We've spent a lot of time, waiting in line
