My brother went to a St. Louis Cardinals spring training game in 2007 after Nick Saban's dramatic departure from the Miami Dolphins, and Bill Parcells resignation from the Dallas Cowboys.
He grabbed a beer and began surveying the field from his front row seat.
About 20 feet in front of him was "The Tuna" himself, chatting it up with his buddy, Cardinals coach Tony La Russa.
As the stands filled up, my brother yelled at the top of his lungs, "Hey Bill, why don't you come down and coach the Dolphins? We need you!"
Parcells turned around, chuckled, shook his head and shouted back, "No way!"
Well, it took another season, but Parcells did come to Miami, although not in the capacity my brother had hoped for.
As the executive VP, the Miami Dolphins "godfather" reports directly to owner Stephen Ross and is responsible for bringing his disciple Tony Sparano on board as head coach.
My brother still claims he is the reason Parcells came to Miami.
Here's the other playmakers responsible for bringing the best of Dolphins football to Miami and it's fans.
