When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Drink wine, read poetry commandeered from the Greeks without attribution, pillage, have sex — that kind of stuff. But when in Florida, well, let’s just say you can do whatever the hell you please. That means if you’re designing the upgrades to Miami Dolphins’ current stadium, you’ve got carte blanche to make lemonade with whatever the hell you can grab from behind the bar before security catches you.
Whoever was tasked with conceiving of these renovations clearly is cool with using the team’s tropical climate to their advantage. By 2016, Sun Life Stadium will feature a 360º awning that shields 92% of the stadium’s innards from the blazing radiation emitting from the yellow dwarf at the center of our solar system.
The 8% that is not covered will be the opposing team’s sideline. When in Florida, barbeque your competition.
