DOLPHINS: Dolphin music

I only get to see the Fins like every shrove Tuesday or something and that game was just incredible!
I still can't believe how variable the Fins defensive tackling can be. What's the deal there?
Bad coaching?? I mean, I can't see that it'd be like a special skill...but I guess it might be.
I'm just surprised by how many players seem to be able to easily slip through the initial contact.
But...the win was sweet - especially after watching ESPN comprehensively ignoring the team.
I still can't believe that they can pregame for hours and the most interesting story they can come up with for the Fins is the new celebrity ownership structure...and some (in my opinion) patronizing Hispanic hoo-ha.
It'll be interesting to see how - or, if - the policy of ignoring the team, changes.
I just don't see how they could justify it now.
Meanwhile, I have a bit of an esoteric question for you all - especially the music nuts.
When the last Fins touchdown happened they were playing some song in the stadium.
It sounded familiar...but not quite.
Bear in mind the music could only be heard in the background to an awful lot of understandable kerfuffle but it sounded almost like it could be the Replacements.
Surely that'd be a bit too hip for the NFL, I thought...but maybe not.
Anyway, if any of you know the song, or who it was, I'd really appreciate the tip.
And I must say, it's great to be asking such a flippant question instead of kvetching about how much I dread the rest of the season.
Optimism, eh? What a strange feeling....
it takes so little to make us happy!
(oh - and what was the point of Rex Ryan demonstrating such a palpable lack of class in his rant after the game? Does he really think the other team played NO part in their loss - overcoming the Jets, media indifference AND absurd refereeing? What an ass!)
