Today, the Dolphins had their kickoff luncheon at Sun Life Stadium, where players, coaches, and fans all got together to get pumped up for the 2011-2012 season.
Players sat down and chatted with fans, also doing interviews with Jesse Agler (@finsjesse if you’re not following him on twitter don’t consider yourself a true Dolfan). Then they closed it out with Coach Sparano giving a speech to all in attendance.
Like him or hate, Coach Sparano can give one hell of a speech. Tony is a very motivating speaker that can light up any room. In fact, Brandon Marshall tweeted earlier: @BMarshall19: Every time I hear coach Sparano speak I get chills. #greatness
There were a couple of lines that stood out to me from Tony’s speech:
Sparano at Dolphins luncheon said " this team will win!!"
Talking about home opener, "I hope it’s outrageous out there.”
Tony quoted Gladiator, saying "If you win the crowd, victory belongs to you, this group will win the crowd."
