"Give them nothing,...and take everything !"
And so it begins. A new season and with that a new adventure. But this year it's different. It begins in my own backyard and its personal.
I've been to Cleveland many a times. It's a place that is never easy to be an opposing fan at. Good sportsmanship,....not there, and certainly not at The Muni Lot ( at least I haven't seen it ). And certainly not when when it's week 1 when their ( and everybody else's ) optimism is at its height. The Browns possess one the greatest fan bases in all of sports, The Browns Backers. They are everywhere even with the fact their team has toiled at the bottom of the league for some time.
If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times,....."don't wear your gear there", "you'll be wearing a beer before the 1st quarter ends", "you are going to get into a fight". On & on,.....but I've heard it all, and seen it all.
But this time I have a different strategy. Long gone are the days of rolling in there in a small group of 4-10. This time my group is close to 50 strong, and filled with hardcore fans. The word has been put out there, I am inviting each & every DolFan attending to show up over at my tailgate party at the Burke Lakefront Airport's lot Here, FB, Twitter,....I'm blasting it out there. There is safety ( & fun ) in numbers. And speaking of which, just how many DolFans will be in attendance ? And how many can I get over there ? 100 ? 150 ? 300 !?? More ????
I will not be hard to find. I will lead the charge !
I am Ohio ! FinFan ! 4 ! Life !!! And I will not retreat. I will not surrender.
Sure it's a bit dramatic,.....but WTF, its a new season ! Go Dolphins !!!
PS- any good Dolphins groups going to Indy ? Cause I'll be coming in hot and need a place to hang pre-game,....
