Hurricane Irma is moving in on Miami this morning, causing a mass evacuation and moving the Dolphins home game originally scheduled for today into November. But the Dolphins are trying to change their routine as little as possible.

The Dolphins chartered flights for players, coaches and staffers to California, where they’ll spend this week practicing at the Cowboys’ training camp facility in Oxnard before playing against the Chargers in their Week Two opener.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, the Dolphins are trying to have as normal a work week as possible. They’ll be off on Monday, have a team meeting on Tuesday and then practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the same way they would any other week.

After playing the Chargers, the Dolphins are hoping their facility is in good enough shape that they can return to Miami for a normal week of practice before their Week Three game at the Jets. From there they travel to London to play the Saints. The Dolphins’ first game in Miami this season is scheduled for Sunday, October 8, in Week Five.

    The hurricane has bypassed Miami. They’re only getting heavy rain and high winds. However, it’s headed directly at the city of Tampa and they will feel the full effect of 130 mph winds for a twelve hour period.

  2. I hope the Dolphins made sure the families of everyone in the organization were flown out of state and lodged before taking the team to California.

  3. First of all, best of luck to all who are going through difficult hurricane times, we wish you well amigos!

    That was cool of the owners and the City of Oxnard to get the Dolphins the River Ridge facilities on such short notice. That is a good site to be at, and hopefully the Dolphins brought their golf clubs because there are at least three nice courses in that area.

    As for the rube who posted about liberals, Jerry Jones seems to enjoy California just fine and I am 110% sure he ain’t no liberal. Perhaps the reason why California is so great is that we can do things like golf on Super Bowl morning, whereas most states are under a few feet of snow. Or maybe it’s the drastically higher wages and property values, I dunno.
