« Unfiltered: Chad Pennington on playing the Jets | Main | Crowder's knee injury could cost him money »

A Dolphins in Depth Christmas greeting

This Christmas poem was written by Michael J. Franza and sent to me by his dad, Mike. I thinks it's appropriate for today and this week:

'Twas Week 17 and all through the land, Miami was flowing with excited Fish fans.

The stage was set in the meadowland air, in hope that St. Pennington soon would be there.

The Jets fans were worried, alone in their beds, while nightmares of Wildcats danced through their heads.

Chad in his jersey and Sparano with cap, they just couldn't wait for that Sunday first snap.

From one and 15 arose such a clatter, I sprang off the couch to see what's the matter.

Wearing number 10, not to be outdone, I knew it was him, our St. Pen-ing-ton.

Now Ricky, now Ronnie, now Polite and Mar-tin , on Cobbs, on Bess, on Fasano and Ginn.

Chad sprang to the huddle, Joey Porter gave cheer, and onward they went, like a new team, a new year.

But then I heard Chad exclaim, as the team drove out of sight, Merry Christmas to all, and to Jets fans good night!

I want to wish all my Christian friends and readers a very Merry Christmas. I want to wish all my Jewish friends and readers a happy Hanukkah. And as a brotherhood, I am believing the one living God we all serve will make His face to shine on us together in the coming year.

If you saw my comedy you would like it Booger.It is a pretty much out there and you have to have some brains to get it!!I think you would enjoy!!

Merry Christmas Armando! Cool Poem! Here's a two lines from Dylan Thomas' poem that I hope the Dolphins follow:

"Do not go gentle into that good night/
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

Oh, and please beat the Jets!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Mando, bro, show some love to your atheist readers like me. We are you friends, relatives, and neighbors, the people you stand next to every day. I just had a great Xmas with my daughter, and neither the holiday, with its Christian, pagan, Jewish, etc., roots, nor I am any less diminished by it.


Feels goo-oo-ood!


Tone, Toni, Tony has done it AGAIN!

(early 90's r&b rocked!!!!)

Tony: Merry Christmas to you and your family also.

By the way, my wife and I are watching the Dark Knight. Very strange. Very long.

Dark Knight was cool.

What's with Batman's voice though?

A losange, maybe? I dunno...

You make me laugh, Booger. Can't believe I just wrote that sentence.

Dark Knight was terrible...I haven't liked Batman since Keaton...Not much into sci-fi or comics though. Taken was a good action movie, as was Traitor. Rendition was great, but not really action.

Merry Christmas Mando,,, haha I was also watching the dark knight today... batman's voice was pretty funny

Hi Mando,

Just a slight correction to your response above, muslims do celebrate the birth of Christ as Jesus is a prophet in Islam. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!! Dolphins will get it done on Sunday!

Hi Khalid,

Good try, my friend, but Muslims recognize the birth of Christ but definitely do not CELEBRATE it. There is a difference.


We all happy now? Now get back to work.


what is work? Mando,

did u get the email about the replay of the 2000 Dolphins and the pets at 9 pm on NFL Network? i do beleive the NFL network is trying to piss us off prior to the Big game.

hope you had a Great Christmas-Christos is King !

Maxx, you're an idiot.


My friend good try on your behalf, my fathers family is Muslim and mother is christian, and muslims do view the birth of Christ as a special day. As I said Christ is one of many prophets in Islam. I realize this is a dolphins blog but one should always be informed. Remember Christianity, Islam and Judiam all have their roots in the old testimate. Phins will get it done!
