For those who don’t know, web weekend is a weekend where the Dolphins organization honors us webbies. I went with FINesse who is part of the staff on the site and a friend of mine.
The weekend starts at Bokamper’s Bar to start the weekend off on Friday night. Sat morning is a community service where we packed boxes full of goods to the troops. I live in Bradenton, Fl. So I drive over there Sat morning and get there by 1 or 2pm. We stay at the hotel that the team stays so there is a pretty good vibe buzzing around.
Around 3:30 a Dolphin shuttle picks us up and takes us to the practice facility. We get a tour of the locker room and the bubble. We then get served dinner in the players lounge. After that we go to the meeting room for the webie awards and guest speakers.
This year Mike D. and Jeff Ireland spoke to us about the team and they took questions from us. I asked about the progress of Egnew and he gave me a BS answer on how great Fasano and Clay are playing and that Egnew can’t break the lineup. I was done after that…lol. Jim Kiick was there to honor the ’72 Fins and we got a sneak preview of the new movie coming out regarding the perfect season which is still perfect, thanks Saints! We didn’t win a webbie. For the last 2 years, only 3 sites have won anything. I’m starting to think it’s rigged.
The next day a bus picks us up and takes us to the stadium for a private tailgate party which features all you can food and beer along with cheerleaders and live music. Around 12:00 we get to go on the field while the players warmed-up and then we get escorted to our seats which were right by the locker room in the old dugout.
I won’t even talk about the game, but I was in the hall way and let the players know how bad they played. Other fans were cheering them on and telling them its OK guys, get them next week. I was thinking to myself that I was at a little league game where everyone gets a trophy, even the losers.
I asked Odrick if he even played and I told Incognito that he’s an idiot for not controlling his temper. Then another fan told me that I was being mean that they are going to hate their fans. I laughed in his face and said no one cares bro. He’s a fan that had his mustache shaped into the mustache that Jim Kiick had back in the day. It was just a frustrating Sunday.
