And a Baseball Diamond Runs Through It, Part Deux

Written by Juan Cena on Tuesday, September 22 2009 and posted in SWRT

Another edition of Monday Night Football, another football field spoiled by the imprint of a baseball diamond. This one courtesy of the Miami Dolphins and their sadly named Land Shark Stadium (the ex-Dolphin Pro Player/Joe Robbie Stadium). This one might actually hurt worse than last week's Chargers-Raiders game in Oakland, since the Dolphins don't really deserve it as much. They're forced for share a stadium with The Florida Marlins until 2012, when the the baseball fish are scheduled to move into a new stadium.
Even worse for the Dolphins: Thanks to a naming rights deal with Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, the stadium is tagged with the moniker Land Shark Stadium, after a lager with the same Land Shark name. Epic fail. Jimmy Buffett has the right to buy the naming rights to a stadium to promote an adult beverage. But seriously, why not name it Margaritaville Stadium? The sales from the merchandise would be more profitable than the beer ever would. A t-shirt with the words "Margaritaville Stadium" = license to print money.
