The ink might not be dry on the deal, but a source says Dolphin Stadium could soon be renamed LandShark Stadium.
That’s LandShark as in LandShark Lager. It’s likely a short-term branding opportunity, perhaps for one season, but the arrangement would fit with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ plan to make the venue an entertaining tropical South Florida experience. LandShark is served at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurants.
Buffett has been chatting with Ross about a business opportunity. But he wasn’t revealing anything about a business deal when I asked him about it at Monday’s Heat-Atlanta Hawks playoff game.
“You’re going to find out real soon,” Buffett said with a smile. “Real soon. It’s going to be great.”
A press conference to announce the deal could be held next week.
