He didn’t even have to ask, it was obvious something happened between them in the Ladies room (hair out of place, smeared lipstick, tossed clothes), after all he was the one who introduced Brenda to Erika.
“Ok we can leave now, take us back to your place”, Brenda said to him as they approached.
Being the gentleman he is he politely opened the door for them and escorted them to his car.
“You’ll get a participation trophy tonight”, Brenda whispered to him as he opened the car door.
Whoa hold-on, wait a minute-wrong blog!

Excuse me, that wasn’t supposed to be on here, that was for something else…
But now that you mention it – Should the Dolphins get a participation trophy for making the playoffs this year?
How about a proverbial trophy, or is it just an atta-boy.
Don’t make me list all of the accomplishments of this season, I know we started 1-4 and then a firecracker went off in the teams ass, they were pumping out wins so fast no one had time to notice the injuries piling up, the young players maturing but also struggling, a coaching staff taking hold with a clear direction, followed by consequences when someone tries their own direction. We just kept winning, it was glorious.
So what are we left with?
Are good or are we lucky?
I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floatin’ around accidental-like on a breeze. But I, I think maybe it’s both. – Forrest Gump
Are we better because we made the playoffs or are we better and made the playoffs?
I think a solid core is emerging that will lead this team to become a perennial playoff contender no matter how bitter yesterday’s loss was. I think in large part it starts with Jarvis Landry, it starts there and spreads through guys like Wake and Suh, Albert and Pouncey followed by a host of 1-3 yr players. We’ve had some decent success in the draft recently and we’re beginning to see it evolve. Injuries took their toll on a fragile roster and clearly defined the cracks that need to be addressed and that will be discussed profoundly over the next several months.
So we enter at least this post season with a bit of a hop in our step for at least participating in the playoffs. Equal growth into next season would make the 2017 Dolphins pretty formiddable.
If you want to crown ’em – crown ’em
They’re who we thought they were…
Thanks Coach Gase. You gave us hope what more could we ask for.
