Winning or losing loves company. Its true. When a team is on top of the world, theres no better feeling than sharing it with others who share the cause. And when things arent going so great well, misery loves company. Its why since the first pig was skinned for a football, people have gathered and soaked their sorrows or toasted the success of their teams. The Lodge (200 S. Federal Highway, Boca Raton; 561-392-5003) is one such place for soaking and sipping, and when the Steelers travel south to meet the Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium, being at the Lodge... well, thatll give you the chance to not have to wait to use the restroom. Steelers fans will be cheering Ben Roethlisbergers second game back from a four-game suspension for some serious hanky-panky at a Georgia nightclub, and the Dolphins will be hoping that good Chad Henne shows up instead of bad Chad Henne. Dont want to have people see you cry (in joy or grief)? You can take your wings and grab a growler of your favorite carbonated malty beverage to go. Thats 64 ounces of frothy goodness. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. Sunday, and tickets start at $52 at Sun Life Stadium (2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens; miamidolphins.com), but things get going at the Lodge, no cover fee, at 11:30 a.m. Visit thelodgeboca.com.
