Miami Dolphins Touchdown Club to honor Jim Mandich; Rose, Bokamper to host Tuesday luncheons at Sun Life Stadium


The late Jim Mandich was the face and the force behind the Miami Dolphins Touchdown Club for a decade.

Tuesdays won’t be the same without the Mad Dog, the popular former Dolphin and media personality who died In April, but the show will go on in a new venue with new hosts. The Touchdown Club will honor Mandich when it begins its 11th season on Sept. 6 at Sun Life Stadium.

Mandich’s “Awww-right Miami” enthusiasm created a Tuesday tradition the brought fans and local sports personalities together during the football season and raised more than $300,000 for former Dolphins players in need.

New hosts Joe Rose and Kim Bokamper have a tough act to follow, but will continue the familiar format featuring current and former Dolphins, media personalities and other guests. The luncheons, noon-1 p.m. on Tuesday throughout the football season, will move from Miami Lakes to the stadium in the club level.

“My father created this event because it was his way of giving back to the community and to the game that he loved so much,” said Michael Mandich. “Continuing this Tuesday tradition will be a special tribute to his legacy.”

For membership information, phone 305-520-5749. Tickets are limited and required with table reservations.
