SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE: Ross, when asked about the team's new fight song and playing Jimmy Buffett's Fins when the team scores, said, "You don't get a feeling for impact until you try something. We're experimenting. That's what preseason is for. I think Jimmy Buffett will definitely be part of it, he's not going away. We happen to like the song, we've gotten a tremendous amount of favorable comments with regard to that. I think the T-Pain version was controversial. You have to realize, people inherently don't like change. Same old, same old." Dolphins CEO Mike Dee added, "T-Pain contributed that song, we played it at the first preseason game. Again it was a preseason game, we were experimenting and continue to experiment. There are at least two other people I know of, who want to contribute their own version of the fight song, different than T-Pain's." More Ross: "We want to start a ritual, we don't know what song it will be, after the third period, there will be a song we'll sing on a continual basis. I can't tell you what that song will be. To inspire people, like the seventh inning stretch, and really inspire the team." Meanwhile, when asked if the team has "plans to change the team colors and uniforms," Ross said, "We haven't even looked at that. I haven't thought of it" (SUN-SENTINEL.com, 8/25).
