With the Miami Heat blowing NBA faces to smithereens and the University of Miami Men's hoop team getting a number-two seed for the NCAA tournament, the Miami Dolphins are left in the wake, wallowing in their spending spree for free-agent players who probably don't deserve all the money they're getting.
Miami Dolphins Logo: 15 New Choices
So they've devised a plan. And that plan is to tell everyone that they plan on unveiling their new logo on April 18 because when the U of M Men's Basketball team is doing things you haven't done in more than a decade, now is the best time to razzle-dazzle everyone with a picture of a porpoise.
But has the new logo been leaked?
Turns out, newly signed linebacker Dannell Ellerbe may have leaked the new logo per his Twitter feed.
His Twitter avi, which used to be a picture of Ellerbe playing football as a Baltimore Raven, now features this avi:
HOWEVAH! Newly signed tight end Dustin Keller has this on his Twitter:
(Keller also still has a picture of him in a Jets uniform. The shit, Keller??)
Could one of these be the new Dolphins logo?
And, if so, will it distract us long enough forget that the Dolphins keep finishing every season with a 7-9 record??
Some fans think the logo as-is is cute and should just be left alone.
Miami Dolphins are getting a new logo. I thought the dolphin with the helmet was cute. #NFL #fins-- Hillary McLeod (@hillary_mcleod) March 18, 2013
The dolphins are changing their logo? NOOOO the dolphin with the helmet is so cute. What could they possibly change it to. #disappointed-- Tori Ortiz (@Tfreakkyyyyyyyy) March 18, 2013
Others, if you might recall, submitted their own designs to us a few weeks back.
Either way, April 18 will be the big reveal and we can all gather around our computers and be dazzled and have our asses blown clean off by the new picture that will appear on our 7-9 football team's helmets.
