If there is one definitive thing we can take from Week 6, it’s that only one team remains a threat to the ’72 Dolphins.
Yes, every year, the members of the flawless 1972 Miami Dolphins dust off their polyester blazers, put a bunch of champagne on ice and countdown the days until the last unbeaten team records their first loss.
The elder ‘Fins take great pride in their four decade-long stranglehold on perfection and Mercury Morris reminds anybody who will listen that they are the only residents of Perfectville.
Hey fellas, nobody cares about your 17-0 record anymore. The Patriots went 18-0, your record has gone the way of eight-track players, valued by few.
So turn up the hearing aids, crank up the Hi-Fi and spin Bruce Springsteen’s hit Glory Days while you watch Jamie Lee Curtis in Perfect on your projector screens.
Sidenote - Does anybody else out there besides me find irony in Curtis being classified as “perfect?” Guess we’re all just one additional set of genitalia away from perfection as well.
