Tonight marks the first time in more than 50+ years that the University of Miami football team will open their home season somewhere other than the illustrious and famed Orange Bowl. I had the opportunity to fly down and attend their last game in the OB w/ my dad. The ‘canes were blown out by the University of Virginia Cavaliers. I had a last OB dog – a last walk up and down the beer soaked walkways – a last buildup to the famous entrance through a tunnel of smoke as the team took the field. Dolphin stadium is antiseptic. The OB had flavor and grit and it literally shook and rattled when the crowd got amped.
