Most Dolphins fans were left shaking their damn heads last night after their archrivals, the New England Patriots, collected yet another Lombardi trophy. To make matters worse, Pitbull, Flo Rida, and Rick Ross, Miami's three biggest rappers at the moment and all supposed Dolphins fans, decided to spend last night partying with the Patriots and owner Robert Kraft.
Did they not have money to fly in Trina and Gloria Estefan too? Apparently not, but the Pats did hire Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish too... who is also supposedly a really big Dolphins fan.
Mind you, Ross is a man who is supposedly such a big Dolphins fan, he's made claims that he wants to buy a piece of the team and has even gone as far as meeting with the front office.
Pitbull, meanwhile, had the good sense to keep his apparently newfound Patriots fandom off of social media, but last week on Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg's SiriusXM radio show he said he was rooting for the Pats and was signed on to play their afterparty.
Flo Rida kept his involvement a bit more hush-hush, but he was there too, per reports... along with Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish.
Pitbull, Rick Ross, Flo Rida and Darius Rucker performing at the Patriots hotel party. Are they purposely getting guys with ties to Miami?

Yes, Hootie and the Blowfish, a band whose biggest song "I Only Wanna Be With You," includes the lyrics, "I'm such a baby 'cause the Dolphins make me cry." Rucker also once told ESPN he even has the team's logo tattooed on his body.
So literally every artist playing at the Patriots private celebration party was a Dolphins fan.
Regular Dolphins fans were unimpressed, if not a little hurt.
Yup Pitball and Rick Ross are sure reppin their hood of Miami allright when they're celebrating the Pats SB win, wld never happen w/Biggie
