Dolphins partner with Buffett
MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins are renaming their home Landshark Stadium as part of a partnership with singer Jimmy Buffett.
The name change from Dolphin Stadium is the fifth since the stadium opened in 1987.
Buffett's Margaritaville enterprise includes Landshark Lager, brewed by Anheuser-Busch.
Buffett and new Dolphins owner Stephen Ross are friends. They plan to unveil a new logo for the stadium at a private event Friday, where Buffett will perform a song inspired by the Dolphins.
The stadium, which has lacked a corporate sponsor for several years, will be the site of the Super Bowl for the fifth time in February. It's the home for the Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes and Florida Marlins.
