Dolphins perfect on this day in history in 1972.  That is our headline and will be the topic of Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida.

And GOOD NEWS!  Our phones are back for the first time since Hurricane Ian!

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

The 1972 Dolphins were amazing and they closed out their regular season on this day in history.  They really only had two close games all year and one team failed to score on them during two games that season.  That’s right… scoreless in 8 quarters.  Now, that’s some good defense!

People also forget that starting QB Bob Griese missed most of the season with a broken leg.  But in addition to their great defense they had a great running game and they did not turn the ball over.

Pete is out today so it will be Chris-o-petia today.  Let’s see how the young Dolphins fan does in the hot seat with a historical look back at his favorite team.

The Dolphins Perfect on this day!  Good Luck!
