Farewell to a Legend

I grew up watching Shula’s Dolphins be the dominant team for many years, usually heartbreaking as a Steelers fan.

People today say that Bill Belichik is the greatest coach ever. He’s on the Mt. Rushmore of coaches with Halas, Lombardi, and Shula. But I put Shula ahead of him because of the era he coached in as compared to today.

Plus the steakhouse is pretty good, too.

  1. Steakhouse?

    What is a steakhouse?

    Actually I did some photos for the local agency marketing the Marriott on Main Street and it included a fun shot of 347 Grill or whatever it was called at the time. This is about 15 years ago or so. We had to hire an off-duty policeman to direct traffic around me since I was on a tall step ladder in the middle of Main Street. The idea was to show the outside, looking in at people through the window with a football game on the flat screen. It worked out really well.

    Never ate there, however.

    1. I believe it was Shula 347. Ate there once for a dinner meeting while job hunting post retirement from the Navy. Also ate at the one at the West side Marriott in Richmond a couple of times for an annual conference. Wasn’t bad. Wasn’t Ruth’s Chris either. More affordable too.
