For the Fifth Time

Yet another name change for the football/baseball stadium in Miami.

The Miami Dolphins are renaming their home Landshark Stadium as part of a partnership with singer Jimmy Buffett.

The name change from Dolphin Stadium is the fifth since the stadium opened in 1987. Buffett’s Margaritaville enterprise includes Landshark Lager, brewed by Anheuser-Busch.

Buffett and new Dolphins owner Stephen Ross are friends. They plan to unveil a new logo for the stadium at a private event Friday, where Buffett will perform a song inspired by the Dolphins.

I like Jimmy Buffett and all that, but Joe Robbie founded the Dolphins and built the stadium, and it was named in his honor. Leave it that way.

Harrumph.
