Ode to the Orange Bowl, sor of OT , but Pats related
This is the last game for the Orange Bowl. And as a Pats fans , many of us had not so many great memories down there
1978- Fairbanks was fired before the game and we get clubbed
1980- MNF John Lennon was shot when we played Miami
1982- Lost a playoff game 28-13
And who could forget the 52-0 clubbing we took in 1972.. ( Remember that one Shula)
But 2 great memories were Pats related, and for the Dolphins I dont think they have recovered from
1985 AFC title game - 31-14.. Eason was marginal at best, but did not have to be perfect.. Running game, defense and a mud field led to our first AFC title game- Squish the fish
1986 - The last ever game played at the orange bowl, and guess who won that game... Pats beat the fish 34-27 for the Afc East title game... Grogan to Morgan for the win, one of my fav games of all time...
so when the orange bowl closes its doors today, think of the Pats, because they won the last playoff game and the last game ever played there.. You can also argue Miami has never really recoverd since playing there .. Miami has only won 6 playoff games since 1985 , the Patriots have won 15 and had 4 super bowl apperence. 5 AFC title games.. Remember when the Pats could never win and that stadium and Miami was the team to beat always, my how times have changes for us long Pats fans...
