The Fest is upon us, too bad we can’t ALL get together, however eventually we will. What a great opportunity it is to meet the people behind the silly or goofy comments, the jokes and the thoughtful takes. I figure if we keep doing the fest that eventually I’ll get to meet each of you and one time or another. When the Sentinel blog was going full force, when there were probably 100 or more contributors, I thought about a meeting that would take place in a hotel ballroom or such and that all the people from the blog would be there. They’d be broken off into sub groups having discussions about each other’s similarities and what not but nonetheless all there to once and for all meet the person behind the avatar. As these Fests have occurred it brings that vision into focus and the fact that we meet on Saturday night at Dave and Buster’s in our own room makes the vision become very realistic.
Our pal Stanger has taken the reigns on Fest organization and I want to thank him for doing it. He takes care of arranging group seating for all that will attend, he organizes the Saturday evening event at Dave and Busters and to top it off has his friend Warren prepare an amazing spread for the tail gate before the game. Stanger – Thank you for all that you do, the Fests are a wonderful time and you do an amazing job.
This time we have two streaks that need to be broken. 0-7 lifetime against the stupid Texans – that needs to end. The ONLY team the Dolphins have never beaten.
And the other streak of course if our fest losing streak, it seems that besides the first one way back when we played and beat Washington and have subsequently lost every one since.
Both change this weekend!!
So come Fest-ivus with the rest of us!
Manitoba recently got a photoshop program so occasionally some of his “work” gets forwarded along. I’d like to share his latest work, a tie in if you will of Dan Campbell taking over the Dolphins and the new Star Wars movie. It’s pretty good.
Ffr and Bat hate the Wendy’s chick on those Wendy’s commercials; well as much as they hate her I hate the “Final Countdown” commercial for Geico with the song from Europe. That song sucked when it came out! And I agree with Bookman about the Matthew MyGodI’mgay Lincoln commercials – enough – Stop it! I’m not an old lady, I’m not buying a Lincoln.
Stop it! I’m not an old lady, I’m not buying a Lincoln. LOL, someone needs to send them an email saying, stop making commercials not geared towards Son 😛
For those of you going to the game:

Another place we would always go was Coney Island on 167th
when we used to go to haulover we had to choose between sub center and coney island what a blast from the past.
Subcenter on the corner by Burger King on 19th ave or what the hell was that one next to the gameroom on the corner of Sunny Isle & Collins ave
We would always go to Arbys down by 19th on our way home.

Swimming the current in ’78
Diving off the bridge in ’79
Just hanging out on the rocks with our Girls
Party in the Parking lot Fri & Sat night early ’80s
Midnight movie at Sunny Isles afterwards

Hell I could go on and on about the crazy things in those days
All my friends, shit the whole gang
I probably even knew you If you where there during those days…
NCAA Football and the NBA. In college football who came up with the ridiculous formation on punts, I’ve seen more blocked punts, on jailbreak rushes, than there should be. In the NBA they’re finally figuring out that shooting 33% on 3 pters is the same as shooting 50% from inside the 3 pt line, something I’ve been saying for 30 yrs now.
What I’ve been saying is teams should be shooting more 3s. Last yr the Rockets figured it out, they shot the most 3s ever 30 per game, and rarely shot between the 3 pt line and 18′ out, it was either close in or a 3pter.
dumbo fisher does it again. too bad he doesnt have a great running back to give the ball too. what a fucking idiot
Anyone seen the freshman PR/WR for Utah Covey? He’s 5’9″ 160lbs white guy, fast and smart as hell, don’t let Belicheat get his hands on this guy.
Covey just went 66 yds for a TD reception to make it 42-24, 4 minutes left.
USC 42-17 over previously undefeated and #3 ranked Utes, with under 5 minutes left.
It’s over, the Utes are still most famous for the line in My Cousin Vinny 😉
Thank you I just met up with all the morons from the blog. Good times UK is here. Or at least someone impursonating him is.
