As most of you in South Florida are probably aware, Dolphin Stadium has been taken over for the year by Jimmy Buffett/Anheuser-Busch's Land Shark Beer to become Land Shark Stadium. I made my way over to the stadium last night for a doubleheader between the Marlins and the Diamondbacks. The games were fairly good, the crowd was non existent, and the beer selection was just OK. The beers that I could find in the stadium were little more than the usual ballpark fare of Bud, Bud Light and Miller Light with a few better ones to be found mixed in (Yuengling, Amstel Light, Heineken, Stella Artois, Presidente and of course Land Shark). The one good thing was that all the domestic and import beers were the same price, $7 (not that $7 is a good price for any of these). Though the prices aren't as crazy as they are at American Airlines Arena, I'd still prefer to do a little tailgating in the parking lot before the game to save a few bucks.
