The Next Thing You Know The New Digs For The Cowboys Will Be Called Cabo Wabo Stadium

buffettThe Miami Dolphins will formally announce today at a private event at their stadium that they have formed a partnership with Jimmy Buffett to name their field Landmark Stadium.

Buffett, best known for his hit, “Margaritaville“, has parlayed the song into a multi-million dollar corporate empire, eponymously named after the tune. Among the investments is Landmark Lager, a beer brewed by Anheuser-Busch.

It may seem like a silly idea at first, but aligning themselves with Buffett, who is good friends with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, is a shrewd business move – you can’t swing a dead cat in the summer without being within hearing distance of that goddamn song.

I may have been joking with the title of this post, but it is true that the Dallas Cowboys have yet to secure naming rights to their new billion dollar stadium. Why not get in touch with Sammy Hagar? I’m sure he would be willing to listen as long as he’s not out on the road not being able to drive 55.

Personally, if I were the Dolphins, I would have went with Lido Stadium – I am aware that Boz Scaggs doesn’t have any products named after hisĀ  classic song, but just try naming another tune that gets the party started as well as “Lido Shuffle.”

Yeah, I didn’t think so.
