KUDOS TO THE GROUNDS CREW
Anybody who was in attendance last night for the international soccer match between Brazil and Honduras might start thinking it was all a dream judging by how the field at Sun Life Stadium looks. The grounds crew is to thank for that.
Less than 16 hours before kickoff between the Dolphins and Chargers, a World Cup-caliber soccer pitch was in place and the stands were filled with yellow Brazil jerseys and blue Honduras jerseys. There also were large Brazilian and Honduran national flags making the rounds, yet now the Dolphins logo is back at midfield and the only remnants of that exciting soccer match are slight outlines of the circles above where each goal was.
