Happy Thanksgiving from Dolphins in Depth

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Today is about big parades. And eating. And certainly about watching football. There are three games on the schedule, including an AFC East meeting between the Patriots and the Jets.

But there's more to this national holiday than the national sport. This is, as you should know, a time to give God thanks for the many blessings he's bestowed on us the past year.

I thank Him for my wife and family.

I thank Him for health and wholeness.

I thank Him for a life full of goodness.

I thank Him for tests -- because they will lead to testimonies.

My family will celebrate with a meal today. I'm frying a turkey. That's right, frying. Locks in the juices. Highly recommend it if you haven't tried it.

But we all must be aware not everyone is enjoying the kind of prosperous personal situation most of us are. Some are less fortunate. Some are not of good health or perhaps aren't working or maybe have been detoured by a string of bad luck.

On Wednesday afternoon the Dolphins did their share to make sure some of those less fortunate would still be able to enjoy this day and be thankful for a good day, at least. The club in conjunction with Publix gave away 750 turkey meals that included all the fixins'.

I shot some videos of the folks picking up those meals.

Here they are:

And here's part deux:

I will watch, if possible, the Pats and the Jets and pull for a Jets win(I have not given up yet).

Once, around the Holidays, a Med Rep came into my Office after seeing the long lines around the Abriendo Puertas building and said, Que estan regalando ahi?(what are they giving away for free there?). I found it funny.

Thanks for the great post Armando. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. While not forgetting what is truly important on this day, family, health, etc. I do thank God for also providing us with a light at the end of the tunnel for our beloved Dolphins.

The Thanksgiving day meals giveaway is a great tradition for the Dolphins. The players and entire organization should be proud.

Wow did Kris get torched last night!

Exposed for the dimwit he is.

He deserved it.

ARMANDO

I KNEW IT

An article posted that Ross is seeking tax payers dollars to renovate his stadium??? Heres a thought YOU BIG EARED BIG NOSED CIRCUS MONKEY, how about putting a winning team on the field and finding someone who can really bring in talented players not that little terd Ireland.

Happy Thanksgiving Mando. Thanks for all that you do here. Seriously, this blog provides much entertainment for me every week that otherwise I'd have to fill with something else. (I'm talking about while I'm stuck at work. I don't waste my entire life here like some do.) ; )

Guys, here's my philosophy, and I expect you to buy in:

FAIL. FORWARD. FAST!

Happy Thanksgiving Mando, and Happy Thanksgiving to all on this blog..

Aloco Old Tuna Ball is dead, maybe Ireland will finally realize this when he forsakes his regular lunchtime sandwich for the fried bird with fixins Armando will send to his office via courier.He is formulating plans for picking up more TEs to sit on the bench that will help the team in December when they play in freezin weather.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone


Let's celebrate a holiday Where the white man slaughtered Indians great yea.

Why do we need to Thank anybody? If there were no food, there wouldn't have been people, no pollution, no disease, no war. What are we here for, to put on a show for god? Let god Thank us.

Loves me some fried turkey.

ARMANDO,


IN FOOD TERMS ,YOU CAN'T SAY (( LOCK THE JUICES ))...IT SOUND LIKE A ROOF GUY COOKING .......... BUT YOU CAN SAY ,SEAL THE JIUCES OR RESERVE THE JUICES ........

STILL TIME TO CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT FRYING THE TURKY ,ITS ONE OF THE WORST THINGS YOU CAN DO TO YOUR FAMILY ,ITS ONLY GOOD IF YOU COOK IT FOR THE HOMELESS..........

Fail forward fast!!!

Frying turns food into poison. Armando looks like he eats lots of fried food.

Armando,

Is it sexist to refer to god as 'him'? Does god have genitals?

oscar canosa/Aloco/Dashi/Kris,
Thank you for being my great friends!
I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Please continue to tell us over and over and over again what must change on the Phins to return them to thier glory days of 1972.
However you do not need to tell us anymore about playing periscopes in the jacuzzi with each other.

THE JAX WILL RELEASE GABBERT SOON ......

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! U To Mando! And Ur Boys!! Oscar and Aloco!

For U food Connoisseurs. Dashi is making a REAL Paella. Wth about the same ingredient As Ur Seafood Salad! And A Turkey! Plus all the regular TG sides.

Don't worry! Didn't use a Bag. Wanted to get that crispy crust!! Turkey has been Seasoned for 2 Days Now! Didn't debone it! Or Sliced it UP to Put the Dashi Mojo Rub!! With Sour Oranges from the Yard! Once The Mofongo Stuffing is ready!! That bird is going in the oven!!

And yes!! Frying Turkey!! Is not Healthy! But it tastes great!!

And my boy Mando looks like he loves the way food taste more than how healthy it is!!

With that said. Dashi heard we are going to have a shortage of bacon next year!! Bacon is about to be Big Business!  

dashi/kris/odin - the three stooges, or the three stools.

notice how they always come to defend each other no matter how stupid their arguments are.

this is what we know:

odin loves kris
dashe loves himself
kris loves nobody

Happy Thanksgiving all! Thanks for the important things and thoughts go out to those around the world in need.

Thanks also for 72', and all the great years in between. Keepin the faith they will return. My 13 year old son a PATs fan by being born in NE patiently listens to my stories of the days when the AFC went through Miami. when your a FLA native you never leave your team.

I am thankful that the Dolphins have GM Jeff Ireland on board, surely one of the most unjustly criticize personnel men in the NFL. I thought I should repost an excerpt from his bio:


"After Bill Parcells elevated Jeff Ireland from a scout for the Dallas Cowboys to the GM of the Dolphins, some were incredulous at the rapid ascent of Ireland from a rather insignificant position with the Dallas team. Ireland always deflected compliments on attaining the position of General Manager at such a young age, stating that he was just warming a chair and collecting a paycheck while Parcells ran the entire show. During one draft, Ireland's duties consisted solely of pouring Dewar's scotch and lighting cigars for Parcells.
Parcells never missed a chance to denigrate and humiliate Ireland, calling him the "boy wonder" and forcing him to perform menial labor, such as vacuuming and polishing the brass in the executive offices, usually with an offhand comment that Ireland should do something to merit his salary. At one point, he challenged Ireland to criticize the selection of West Virginia quarterback Pat White in the second round. Ireland's only comment was "Great pick, boss" - but inside Ireland chafed at his treatment and privately questioned Parcells' sanity as well as his draft picks."

I am thankful that first Chad Henne returned manliness to Miami with 60 yard TD bomb to Ginn in endzone against Jets on MNF in his second start. That put the era of NoodleArm-BACKDOOR-Wildcat to rest.
I am thankful that Tanne has continued the era of manliness.
Being manly and having self-respect is more important than winning football games.
We can never again allow 1 individual to make every player, employee and fan of this organization like like...

...hose handlers

GABBERT NOW IS AN OFFICIAL BUST.....

HOW DID WE MISS ON KAEPERNICK OF THE 49'S ?

Notepad,

Dashi does Love Himself. I've never denied that. Dashi is a Illeist! But Dashi loves and respects everyone else the same as Himself!

That is The Way of The Dashi!! Treat others With Respect! And Never let A Weak Emotion Like Anger! Take Over U!! Stay Positive at all times!!

It's Thanksgiving!! Give it a break Buddy!! U were Exposed by The REAL Coalition!! Take a Break!! Eat Some Turkey!!

U've just been Dashi'd!!

DASHI ,

YOUR POST @ 10;50 AM , IS THAT WRITTEN TO NOTEPAD OR KRIS ?

IRA, pretty funny....wished I had your gift of satire. Keep them coming.

Do you know that in my Profession the Holidays are the busiest time of the Year? Yes, at the VA too.

ALoco, I and some others wanted Kaepernick. SF traded up and got him. Ireland also traded up and got Daniel Thomas.

didnt miss on him aloco, we missed on harbaugh . its the coaching

ARMANDO ,DID YOU EVER GO TO HIGH SCHOOL ?

YOU CAN'T WRITE IN ENGLISH;;


(( LIFE FULL OF GOODNESS ))

OR

(( lock the juices )).............BOTHE ARE WRNOG ........

Aloco,
Mando wanted us to get Kappe.
I don't regret we have Tanne.
QBs like Kappe that make thier plays outside of the pocket spend a lot of time on sideline with concussions (see Mike Vick).

Tanne > Kappe

BILL,

IF WE HIRE JESUS CHRIST TO COACH THIS TEAM OF BELOW AVARGE PLAYERS ,HE WILL FAIL.......HARBAUGH WENT TO THE 49'S B/C HE HAD WAY BETTER PLAYERS THERE AND NO GARAGE MANAGER THERE...

CADLIIIAC........


CAN YOU TRY WRITING A DIFFERENT NICER POSTS THAN THESE HOT TUB CRAPY POSTS YOU KEEP POSTING ....

Wow didn't even get through one page before all the BS weirdness started anew. It's not funny, entertaining, or anything that could be construed as meaningfull.

So how many weirdos are involved in the daily hijacking of the comment section of this blog?
Is it really just two or three people? That's pretty weak.

1-MY GOOSE IS IN THE SINK READY TO BE WASHED .

When Ireland traded 3 picks for D Thomas the draft room broke out in hysterical laughter.

NOW , WE HAVE 18 TE ...........

2- I AM WASHING MY GOOSE WITH COLD WATER AND SOAP.

Aloco the Ireland led Dolphins missed Kapernick just as they passesd on Seatle Back-up Flynn.Thats all good because it would have been more DEAD MONEY to deal with for the major overhaul to be performed by the gas station manager in the off-season and upcoming draft.

WE SHOULD HAVE SHOULD HAVE KEPT HENNE,WITH MOORE AND DRAFT TANNEHILL............

WE SHOULD HAVE KEPT MARSHALL AND DAVIS ..


WE SHOULD HAVE RELEASED;FASANO,D.THOMAS...

KingShula they didnt pass on Flynn. Flynn passed on us.

there are seventeen jolly monkeys in my pool. I have taught them how to service me with their hands and mouths.

I didn't realize Lane was such a fat weakling lard. I guess that time he ran over that guy in preseason was a fluke. He ain't no Polite. No wonder he can't get a first down. Has that dude ever seen a weight room from the inside?

Fail forward fast!

I have evaluated myself and I concluded I have done nothing wrong. We are going to continue to follow my philosophy of failing forward fast. Onward!

Precisely who did we draft with Kopernick was on the board?

It's not like he's a secret. There were articles saying he's twice as good as Tebow 3 years ago. Dude has literally twice as many everything as Tebow in college. Twice as many completions, yards, TDs, rushing yards, rushing TDs, etc.

Exactly who did we draft the moment when it was our turn and he was available?

McLovin,
You down on Javorski 'Night Train' Lane?
