The Miami Dolphins continue their embarrassing march toward all things ridiculously South Florida stereotypical and cheesy.
Add an "exclusive, ultra-modern" nightclub cobranded with Ocean Drive
magazine in the middle of the stadium to their dumb venue name, ever-growing list of celebrity owners, crappy collection of new theme songs, and Britto art collection.
That's right, the Fins have partnered with the least sports-focused publication in Miami for a VIP club called, naturally, the Ocean Drive Club.
"The alliance will enhance the Miami Dolphins' relationship within the local community and bring together tastemakers and influencers that make South Florida shine," niche media honco Jason Binn says.
Never mind the fact that the real "local community" doesn't even read Ocean Drive.
The 4,500-square-foot club will be located in the Gate G sub-concourse and will feature lounge-like seating, flat-screen TV sets, a carving station attended by chefs, private cabanas, and a premium bar, among other amenities.
Does this mean the Fins will make more appearances in the pages of Ocean Drive? Because, boy oh boy, we can't wait for a spread featuring Joey Porter and Chad Pennington wearing the latest European swimsuit fashions.
