Miami Dolphins: Darius Rucker
The Miami Dolphins finally made it back to the NFL Playoffs after the 2016 regular season, and all signs were pointing the team in the right direction. However, quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason heading into 2017, and the Dolphins once again found themselves on the outside looking in come January.
This offseason, the team has made a ton of changes to their roster, including getting rid of veterans like Ndamukong Suh and Jarvis Landry, leaving some young players to step up. One thing that will not change with this organization is their most famous fan, Darius Rucker, who is about as die-hard a fan as you can get.
Rucker has had a very interesting music career, starting off as the head guy in Hootie and the Blowfish, before turning his attention to country music. Along the way, he has displayed his fandom for the Dolphins on many occasions, including singing the national anthem before Dolphins games.
In addition to signing in front of the home crowd, Rucker has also sung in front of the best quarterback in team history, as he was asked to perform at Dan Marino’s retirement party. Rucker also sports a Dolphins tattoo on his body, and after a stellar music career that has spanned decades, you have to like him as their most famous fan.
The first indication of Rucker’s fandom might have come in one of his more famous songs, where he talks about his love for the team. In “Only want to be with you,” Rucker sings “I’m such a baby, the Dolphins make me cry.” Hows that for a shoutout to our favorite team.
