Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The horrible eight months in which we've had to refer to our football stadium as "Land Shark" in honor of a horrible Chevy Chase sketch Jimmy Buffet's beer is just about over.

As soon as the Dolphins play their January 3 game against the Steelers. the stadium will revert back to being known as Dolphin Stadium. So the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, and seemingly the Orange Bowl will not be tainted by Jimmy Buffet.

Of course, there's always the possibility someone else will step in to buy the naming rights. Let's just hope it doesn't end up as the Sunkissed Glow by J.Lo Eau de Toilette Bowl (a.k.a. Jennifer Lopez's toilet bowl).

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
