Being a Miami football fan these days is akin to being a prisoner of war. The experience just keeps getting worse, with no end in sight. As the anxiety sinks into desperation, you want to do something, anything, to better the situation, but youre trapped and your captors are out of reach. Youre too old to try out for the Canes. Conventional wisdom says youre too small to play for the Dolphins, but thats up for debate as the Fins flail toward an 0-16 finish. This weekend youll have two chances to escape. The Miami Dolphins take on the hated New York Jets at 1 p.m. at Dolphin Stadium. The stadium will no doubt be full of obnoxious New Yorkers, and its your patriotic duty to represent our banana republic and stave off the occupation. For game tickets, including a $99 holiday two-pack, call 1-888-FINS-TIX or visit www.miamidolphins.com.
