First, though, I'll tell you that Centerplate (who recently merged with Boston Culinary, which means I need to do some category rearranging) hired 3,700 people to support the food and beverage operations. They're expecting to serve 70,000 fans twice during the SuperBowl since it's really a day-long event. Love that. They're also expecting to sell One Ton of pulled pork (let's talk about Everglades BBQ Company later).
Here's something else interesting...this Stadium has had seven names since it opened in 1987: Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Dolphin Stadium and Land Shark Stadium.
Because Land Shark Lager's eight-month naming rights deal expired after the Orange Bowl, the name Dolphin Stadium has been back in use for the past two weeks. Brilliant. And good choice to go with the singular form of the team's name. When SG went to the AFC-NFC World Championship Game (ticket pictured) it was Pro Player Stadium, and it was excellent.
