Dolphins release plans for “umbrella” they say they don’t need

The Miami Dolphins have revealed what they want to spend their $250 million in stadium renovation money on: Giant umbrella!

Okay, to be fair, team execs actually said they have no idea how much the umbrella (what normal humans usually call a “roof” or an “overhang”) would cost:

“This is not a plan that has been priced out,” Dolphins CEO Mike Dee told a South Florida Super Bowl Host subcommittee appointed to review the proposal. “We’re not at a point where we’ve figured out financing or figured out how to make it work. But we want to leave no stone unturned to see how we can work it out.”

Dee also said, according to the Miami Herald, that “the Dolphins do not need the stadium improvements for regular season games, and that it was up to local Super Bowl organizers to decide if the renovations are worth pursuing.” Translation: We just drew the pictures of the superumbrella, don’t expect us to actually help pay for it.

  1. Move the Dolphins to Los Angeles.

    There is a fan base who would accept this successful franchise!!

    Go LA Dolphins!!!

  2. I was at the last Super Bowl in Miami. We were there for 9 days and it rained a little every day, but the SB just happened to be the one really miserable day of the 9. That’s the breaks–hardly worth spending a quarter of a billion dollar to remedy.
