Darius Rucker made it no secret in the Hootie & The Blowfish 1995 hit song “Only Wanna Be with You” that the Dolphins make him cry. As a South Floridian, born and raised, as well as a lifelong Miami Dolphins fan, I truly get the sentiment and often join Darius in those sobs of defeat.
However, today, in sunny Miami as the Dolphins gear up for their first home game of the NFL season, Darius isn’t quite crying (yet). Rather, he is all smiles as he poses for a picture with the record-setting former quarterback of the Fins, Dan Marino, after the two had a catch at Sun Life Stadium.
Good luck to my boys as they face the Buffalo Bills later today. Do me and Darius a favor — don’t make us cry!
