I’m about to tell you a story of a Miami Dolphins fan — a story that you probably know and understand all too well. This is a story of jersey selection and the unfortunately fate of a Miami Dolphins fan.
I received my first Dolphins jersey when I was very young. It was an aqua Ricky Williams jersey, and I remember the day I got it. I was actually in Miami when my parents gave it to me. At the time, I thought it was going to be the beginning of an epic jersey-owner relationship. Well, a few short years later Williams left football to pursue other activities and my parents didn’t like the idea of my wearing his jersey anymore.
So that sucked, but then I decided to look to the draft. Next jersey? Ted Ginn. Well, we all know how that worked out so bye bye Ginn. Honestly, looking back I don’t know what I expected when I invested in the Ginn jersey. It was a moment of desperation. That being said, however, during the Ginn reign Williams returned to action and I got to sport his jersey for a few years despite it being a child’s medium.
Meanwhile, in the rest of my house my brother had invested in Chad Pennington, Chad Henne, and Ronnie Brown. He eventually got a Cameron Wake jersey. And my mother invested in Jake Long, which was great until this past offseason.
After Ginn I went Ronnie Brown. Gone. Then I went Brandon Marshall. Boy did I love Brandon Marshall. That of course ended and so last year I went Ryan Tannehill.
Most people say the jury’s still out on Tannehill, but (for now) lets just add that to the list.
Honestly Dolfans, what am I supposed to do?
