Grumpy Old Men

The Miami Dolphins have not had much to celebrate lately. The 1972 Dolphins, however, celebrate their undefeated season every year once the last undefeated team goes down. But as the New England Patriots march on towards their own perfect season, the old champions are shaking it their boots. None more so then their leader and coach, Don Shula.

Shula, in an interview with the New York Daily News, has said that, "The Spygate thing has diminished what they've accomplished." He also went on to say, "I guess you got the same thing as putting an asterisk by Barry Bonds' home run record."

Looking at the big picture here, this doesn't really mean a thing. That's because, if the Patriots would go on to a perfect season, nothing would loom over them. Nobody will remember "Spygate", and the Pats would be remembered as one the greatest teams of all time. This, of course, is unacceptable to the '72 crew. Their perfect season is really all they have left. The party they hold every year to celebrate themselves is already sad, if not totally embarrassing. This just adds to the awkwardness we have to feel when watching these crusty old geezers pat themselves on the back.

The '72 Dolphins will do anything to keep another team from breaking their record. It would not shock me to hear that they kidnapped Tom Brady right before Week 17 to remain the only perfect team in NFL history. The scene from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective with former Dolphin Dan Marino comes to mind. By publicly calling out the Patriots and trying to get everybody to join in their conspiracy, Don Shula and the gang have sunk as far as they could go. I am now rooting for New England to go undefeated this year, and knock these cocky grandpas of their pedestal.

Yeah, New England is a better team than the 72 Dolphins because they played better teams! But, then they lose the Super Bowl to a wild card. Sounds like they didn't play any good teams after all!!!
