For Nick Buoniconti, the champagne flowed early this season.
When the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 10, lowering their season record to 3-1, they became the last remaining NFL team to lose for the first time this season. That meant the Miami Dolphins’ 17-0 record in the 1972 season would remain unchallenged for another season.
Rumor has it that Buoniconti—who captained that 1972 Dolphins team—leads his former teammates in a champagne toast whenever the last undefeated NFL team loses each season. It’s a way for Buoniconti and pals to celebrate their year of unsurpassed excellence.
The lesson: The ex-Dolphins’ annual toast to others’ misfortunes might seem like bad sportsmanship, but it also reinforces their pride of accomplishment.
