Miami Dolphins Giving Away “1972 – Still Perfect Hat” to Every Fan at Oakland Raider Game Sunday
Miami Dolphins Press Release –
In honor of the 40th
anniversary of the Miami Dolphins 1972 Perfect Season, the organization has announced a host of unique events, activities and promotions in honor of this singular achievement.
To commemorate this historic anniversary, every fan attending the season opening game at 1:00 p.m., September 16, against the Oakland Raiders will receive a commemorative 40th
Anniversary 1972 Perfect Season cap. Titled “Still Perfect”, the high quality caps will be presented by Publix. Additionally, members of the 1972 team will be at stadium gates greeting fans as they enter the stadium.
“40 years later, the achievements of Coach Shula and the ’72 team remain unmatched and continue to be a great legacy for the Dolphins franchise,” said Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee. “We are proud to partner with Publix to ensure that every single fan in attendance on Sunday can take home a piece of history with these throwback hats, handed to them directly by the players that brought Miami its first Super Bowl championship.”
Being a former season ticket holder, I received a call from Bob Griese (yes, it was a recording) urging me to come out and watch the Dolphins take on the Raiders. “I want to personally invite you to come out this Sunday as the Miami Dolphins take on the Oakland Raiders,” Griese said. “Come out to the stadium and help create a home-field advantage. Also, everyone in attendance will receive a limited edition 1972 Perfect Season Throwback cap.”
The voice recording was played overtop of the original Miami Dolphins Fight Song
. Speaking of which — the Dolphins will play the fight song after every score rather than that stupid Jimmy Buffet beach motel song.
The team is trying really hard to win back its fans and rebuild the home-field advantage the Dolphins enjoyed with Dan Marino. Coincidentally, both Ryan Tannehill and Joe Philbin were wearing the hat (seen below) in their post-practice interviews today.
While the hat is a nice touch and something I definitely would be there for if I could, a win would be a better giveaway on Sunday! Go Dolphins!
