Dolphins Players Share Their Holiday Memories

Posted Dec 24, 2012

On Christmas eve, Dolphins players look back at their childhood holiday memories.

Favorite Childhood Christmas Memory 

Tony McDaniel: I left the cookies and milk out for Santa and I ate the cookies and I was scared Santa was going to put salt and pepper in my stocking.
Jonathan Martin: I’d say back when I was a little kid in Pittsburgh seeing the snow falling and going downstairs and seeing all of the presents under the tree.
Daniel Thomas: I knew I was getting a fourwheeler, so I was waiting up for my granddad to drive up in his truck. I remember getting up and watching through the window them bringing it in.
Cameron Wake: One Christmas morning I woke up I figured Santa had to be real because there was a basketball hoop and bikes and I figured there was no way my mom could have carried a basketball hoop in here. Santa had to do this.
