Kim Bokamper: Bo Knows

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

Selected by the Dolphins in the first round of the 1977 NFL Draft, Kim Bokamper played his entire career in Miami, first as an outside linebacker from 1977-1980, and then as a defensive end from 1981-1985. Bokamper would become a fixture in South Florida as a television broadcaster on WFOR-TV CBS Miami, as a sideline reporter for Dolphins games for 560 WQAM Radio, and as a restaurateur with his "Bokamper's Sports Bar & Grill" restaurants.

Bo, who is also one of the all-time great story tellers in Dolphins' history, dives in with OJ and Seth for the first time since 2019, and does not disappoint. Fresh of the Dolphins historic come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens, we relive the thrilling experience from his sideline vantage point (3:03), which of course sparks memories of Bob Griese becoming the first Fins passer to throw six TDs in a 1977 game that Bo also had a front row seat to (7:47). Kim tells us the craziest thing he ever witnessed as a sideline reporter (10:16), recalls weathering the storm of both Defensive Coordinator Bill Arnsparger and legendary Head Coach Don Shula after a missed sack opportunity (14:56), and explains why even the equipment truck was held to Shula's strict schedule (17:58). Bo then gifts us two of the most hilarious stories ever told in The Tank as he details Ed Newman's 12-Minute Run attempt (22:08), and an outrageous blackmail scheme for Dan Marino's missing high school shoulder pads (39:03). Finishing strong, Bo delivers a walk-off-sack in our Two-Minute Drill (48:46).
