Dukes of Awesome


Think the Rivalry is Kind of Dead? The Rivalry is NOT Dead. by pinkjerseyssuck

So if you’re a long time reader you know that a portion of the Dukes went on a Buffalo sports vacation down to sunny overcast Miami. If you’re a first time reader you just found out. The trip opened my eyes to a few things. 
.
First, if I bring Sahlen’s hotdogs next year I can use them to buy tickets (I am definitely not kidding). 
Second, it is really, really, uncomfortably humid/hot in Miami. 
Third, I do not speak Spanish. 
Fourth, Kent Hull is gigantic and Rolls has a ridiculous hairline. And
Fifth, the rivalry is not dead.
.
When it was first announced that the game in Toronto last year was the Miami home game some people were angry, but, for the most part, everyone just thought about it and decided they didn’t care that much. Why? Because Miami was *terrible* two years ago, because they hadn’t been serious competition for anyone in several years, and because people claim that the rivalry is “dead” between Miami and the Bills, including some Bills players. 
.
After a sweltering trip south, I now beg to differ.
.
I now hate Miami, and I hate their fans. None of them individually, but as a group. (Individually some of them were actually good-hearted, but I chaulk that up to the female presence in our group). It was painfully obvious that these fans could care less about their football team when a Bills jersey isn’t nearby. Here are a few examples:
.
1. The fly-over.
Look real close, it's there.
Look real close, it’s there.
.
2. The dedicated fans take their seats in the middle of the second quarter. 
THAT is dedication.
THAT is dedication.
.
3. You could recognize their fans by their pink shirts.
does torquiose + orange = pink?
does torquiose + orange = pink?
.
4. This guy was in the running to win a prize – because they give a prize to people who show up simply if they have dolphins colors on. Not the “best” outfit, just any. They bribe their fans to support the team.

.
5. Half of the Dolphins attendance was jazzercising women in pink shirts who left as soon as their show was over. Once they left there were more Bills fans.
Bye, bye.
Bye, bye.
.
6. The WORST, and I mean WORST theme song ever. Ever. Terrible.
.
7. Even their cheering sucked. The most obnoxious man boy “Dolphan” I’ve ever seen tried rallying the 2 rows behind him when the Dolphins managed to get a safety, to no avail. A safety? Come on, dude. 
.
Now, after soaking in all the above information, realize that I have never been trashed talked so much in my life… and it wasn’t even good trash talk. You don’t see the celebration that you see at the Ralph when the Bills win. No. You see people walking, talking about their trailer homes, and then when they catch a glimpse of blue and red, attempting to trash talk by saying “it’s cold in Buffalo!” and “you lost to the worst team in the division!” and then going back to their conversations about how fun it is to excessively sweat 364 days of the year.
.
Really? That’s the best you’ve got? Ugh. 
.
And so now I have come to realize why people continue to fly to these games year after year. The Rivalry is alive and well, even if it is only with the fans of each team. I now officially hate the Dolphins, and I hate the Dolphans. And I can’t wait until next year when I go down there and watch us WIN. It will feel so sweat sweet.
