They’re getting smoked on the field. Now, even the publication that covers nothing but the Miami Dolphins has been the victim of a fire that destroyed a large collection of memorabilia and photos.
Could it get any worse for Dolphin fans? The team continued it’s struggles Sunday with a home loss to the Packers.
Now this from the Palm Beach Post:
The headquarters of Dolphins Digest burned down in a shopping-plaza fire before dawn Tuesday, destroying the publication’s vast collection of memorabilia and historic photos.
"A lot of things you can repair and replace, but a lot of what the fire destroyed are things that you can’t buy back," Dolphins Digest editor Andy Cohen said.
Dolphins Digest is operated by Curtis Publishing Co., which produces several sports publications.
The publishing company’s offices were in a shopping plaza in Doral, west of Miami International Airport.
The fire destroyed more than 3,000 photos that dated to the club’s inaugural season in 1966. Also gone are mementos accumulated by publisher and former Dolphins player Tom Curtis, including his All-America plaques from the University of Michigan and keepsakes from his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame last year.
