Up against the clock and with a future Super Bowl on the line, the Miami Dolphins suffered an epic defeat Friday in the state Capitol. The look of defeat on the face of Rep. Eddy Gonzalez, as he hugged House Speaker Will Weatherford, spoke volumes as the team's stadium effort failed. Gonzalez, R-Hialeah, had been the Dolphins' chief ally in the Florida House. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, turned out to be the team's nemesis.
