If the bright spot of the 2011 Dolphins season is killing the Jets, it'll totally be worth it to head to Sun Life Stadium (2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens). But we know that's risky, and maybe you don't want to be stuck in traffic on New Year's Day with possibly no victory to boot. Perhaps you want to be on the beach. Perhaps you want to be on a sundeck. All those things as well as $10 domestic pitchers, $12 domestic buckets, and $5 "bombs" (served downstairs) can be found at NFL Sundays at McSorley's Beach Pub (837 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). The Dolphins have been a mess. The Jets, for their part, have been a mess as well. Here, you can follow suit -- and not have that long drive home. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. Visit miamidolphins.com and mcsorleysbeachpub.com.
