Dolphins having “garage sale”

If you live in South Florida and if you hurry, you can make it to Sun Life Stadium for the conclusion of a “garage sale” held by the Dolphins.

Per the Palm Beach Post, the event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

With a new logo and uniform coming for the franchise, the Dolphins need to unload their existing gear.  Some items are being sold for as little as $5, and most of the products are available at 50 percent off.

Of course, similar discounts aren’t as widely available at the team’s online store, where there’s no warning provided that the logo and other facets of the team’s uniform and colors will soon be changing.

So we’ll provide the same advice we’d offer anyone thinking about purchasing tickets to the team’s games:  Buyer beware.

    Some items are being sold for as little as $5, but the players start at $7.

    Forget the garage sale, that article you linked says that Koa Misi was just sentenced after he punched THROUGH a man’s front door and broke the guy’s eye socket. That is impressive. Illegal, but impressive.

    This is an important time of the year for the franchise as they gear up to host many of the top free agents before they sign elsewhere.

    Im not driving down there to get some nasty mouth piece for $5. “Garbage Sale” would be more fitting.

    Just got back from it. Most of the items are sized for the players and I’m gonna have to spend a long time at the buffet before I can fit into a 4XL. But if you dug hard enough you could find some items for normal sized people at literally garage sale prices. My haul: a long sleeved thermal shirt {for the 4 days a year it gets a little chilly in Miami}, 2 T shirts and about 20 pair of socks, $18. I bring it to the cashiers table and he says, “ah, let’s make it $15.”

    Then over to the store in Dolphins Stadium {you will never hear the words Sun Life Stadium come out of my mouth} where everything was 50% off because they have to make room for new crap with the new logo. With the discount, stuff was still selling for twice what it’s worth but the place was crowded and people were happy. All in all, a good morning.

    For a moment there, I thought the Jets were in town.

    They did this the last time I went to their draft party as well. Had a ton of old canister film of practices back in the 60s and 70s.

    “Just got back from it. Most of the items are sized for the players and I’m gonna have to spend a long time at the buffet before I can fit into a 4XL. ”

    Someone probably already backed up to there with trucks buying all the sizes most of us would wear so they can resell it.

    Thanks for sharing, handsatlanta.
    Now let’s see the new logo and uniforms!

    How desperate does Florio have to be to make such a cheap shot at the Dolphins? First, if it were almost any other team, he would probably be calling this just a sale (yeah, I know he got the idea from Volin, but Volin made it the third item on the page after some real, actual news and didn’t add any invective when he reported it, unlike Florio). Second, whatever the Dolphins did with the stuff, Florio would probably find a way to disparage their decision. For example, if they kept/threw it out, he would probably write that they must be doing so because they can’t find anyone to buy it.

    I hope they don’t screw up the new logo. Especially with the great history of the Dolphins.

  13. vipod4ever says: Feb 16, 2013 5:16 PM

    How much are they selling heart,mind, and soul? Can’t put a price tag on that!

  14. melikefootball says: Feb 16, 2013 5:17 PM

    As usual by the new NFL, let the fans help bail out the team by buying the left overs that the players have aready got for NOTHING.

    I hope they’re gonna be wearing that awesome metallic orange facemask ive been seeing online. That looks awesome!

    “Broke ass Dolphins just like their fans. Lol. #GoBills”

    The Dolphins and their fans may be broke ass as you call us but after the game we go back to our homes here in South Florida where, in February, the sun shines, it’s 75º and our biggest chore is cleaning the backyard swimming pool. How you doing up in Buffalo?

    Oh, and by the way — our rookie QB played like a rookie last year with a 76.1 rating. Your 7 year veteran QB has a career 76.5 rating. All in all, I’d rather be in my shoes than yours.

    I wonder how much they were selling Jeff Ireland bobble heads for? They’d probably have to pay fans to take them.

    Is Mrs. Tannehill going to be holding a bikini carwash as well? Because that would be worth the drive
