I have been a Miami Dolphins fan for many years. I was so lucky that I even saw them play in person . Appreciating Dan Marino comes naturally to a Dolphins fan of course. What if there was something else that he did that would make me think he was supremely cool that had nothing to do with throwing a football. For me here it is. From a twenty year old Sports Illustrated Article.
Marino has no tolerance for his younger teammates' tastes in visual entertainment (Madden NFL '98) or music (rap). "The receivers are right across from me in the locker room, and they blast that stuff all the time," Marino says. "A few months ago I said to myself, Screw this, and I drove to Best Buy and said, 'Give me the biggest boom box you've got.' The next day I brought in a bunch of my CDs, flipped on some Ted Nugent and blasted it right back at 'em."
