Celebrity Miami Dolphins Fan #4: Anthony Rizzo

Former Chicago Cubs World Series Champion and current New York Yankee Anthony Rizzo is a big Dolphins fan, but don’t google it.

You’ll see pictures of Rizzo in Dolphins swag including t-shirts and jerseys, and a flick of him participating in a local charity bike ride rocking the teal and orange. But two of the top results you’ll get are quotes from the first baseman talking about how excited he is for the Jay Cutler era in Miami. Yuck.

Rizzo was born and raised in Parkland, Florida, just south of Boca Raton and certainly in Dolphins territory. He was headed to Florida Atlantic University to play his collegiate ball before being drafted by the Red Sox organization.

On December 24th 2016, Rizzo tweeted out “All I want for Christmas is a Miami Dolphins win!!!” ahead of the postseason-clinching game against the Buffalo Bills.

Celebrity Miami Dolphins Fan #5: Daniel Tosh

One of the most visible celebrities during the 2010s was Daniel Tosh, who was the host of the popular variety show Tosh.0, which aired on Comedy Central from 2009 until 2020.

Born in West Germany, Tosh grew up in Titusville, Florida, outside of Orlando. He not only spent his formative years in the state, but he also attended the University of Central Florida during the mid-90s. His Dolphins’ fandom was obviously born out of locality and geography.

The Dolphins were featured in a number of skits put on by Tosh during the show, including self/team deprecation and hilarious slander of both Nick Saban and the New England Patriots. When his friend was battling a brain tumor in 2015, Tosh placed a $25,000 bet in support, taking the Patriots -3 in the first half in a game against the Dolphins. New England was up by 19 at halftime, and Tosh came out with $45,833 in total.
