Having the opportunity to go to Land Shark Stadium in Miami with my lovely wife to watch football games two days in a row was an unforgettable experience, firstly getting to see the University of Miami Hurricanes play the Oklahoma Sooners before seeing the Dolphins under 24 hours later.
We picked up the Dolphins tickets on the Friday before the game, and when we were there the Oklahoma Sooners truck, with what I imagine was all the players uniforms inside, was just departing the car park outside Land Shark Stadium’s main entrance.
The Sooners truck was dropping off pads and helmets in Miami
The main shop at Land Shark Stadium was packed with merchandise for Dolphins and Hurricanes fans alike.
One of the more amusing gifts is below.
I swear I took a picture of cuddly Dolphins
The shop was pretty impressive, not so sure about the day-glo chimps.
Being at the stadium when it was empty was a slighty weird experience but it was fun.
I was certainly bitten by the bug of Land Shark Stadium
Rather oddly in the three visits my wife and I made to the stadium we did not drink a single Land Shark beer.
I did have one at a cool pizza place on Collins Avenue though, it was no Red Stripe though.
Mine's a Red Stripe please but I'm not in Jamaica
