A national historic landmark turned aqua and orange to kick off football season and it wasn’t the only one.
Only one team in the history of the National Football League has gone undefeated in the regular season, the playoffs, and then won a Super Bowl, the 1972 Miami Dolphins. Tuesday, the team received its long over-due trip to the White House to be honored as a champion by the president.
The Miami Dolphins team that achieved the only perfect season in NFL history will be honored by the White House next Tuesday, more than 40 years after its accomplishment.
Legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula was two wheeling it Sunday at the Fins game. The NFL Hall of Fame coach used a wheelchair to take part in a pregame ceremony Sunday honoring Miami Dolphins Hall of Famers.
The Miami Dolphins game against the Oakland Raiders will be extra special for longtime Fins fans who cherish the days of the Mad Dog.
