Steven Sotloff was in many respects like many of you on this blog: He was a Dolphins fan.
"When we moved in together, he would never shut the heck up about rugby. Rugby or the Miami Dolphins," Emerson Lotzia Jr., Sotloff's former roommate at the University of Central Florida told the Central Florida Future recently.
Sotloff pursued his passion for journalism and the Dolphins in parallel ways. He headed to the middle east to cover the region and tell stories. And he found innovative ways to make sure he stayed up to date on his NFL even from the most remote locations.
The Dolphins lost Sotloff recently. He was slain in a barbaric manner by the terrorists for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria -- known more commonly as ISIS.
The Dolphins are aware of this heinous act and Sotloff's passion for the team. So they are going to have a moment of silence before Sunday's game against the New England Patriots to pay respects in rememberance of Sotloff, according to team president and CEO Tom Garfinkel.
