Orange Bowl Stadium Miami Home of the Hurricanes Postcard Friendship Friday

  I  really enjoyed watching the NFL Football Draft last week so chose a stadium postcard for PFF.
This postcard was mailed in 1948.  A little about the Orange Bowl, although when I researched it there were so many uses for different sports teams  I got a little confused.  The Orange Bowl Stadium was home for the Miami Hurricanes College Football team.  It was also the first home of the Miami Dolphins.  It was used for the annual New Years Day Game from 1938 to 1995.  The Orange Bowl was demolished in 2008 to make way for a 37,000 baseball stadium with retractable roof.

Awesome picture Judy and I don't think I would like being that high in the sky to take pictures..That was some very good info on the park...I wonder what will happen to Wrigley Field in Chicago since they are planning to change the name..now might be a good time to try and get a few recent postcards to have as keepsakes after they change the name.

I didn't know the Orange Bowl was demolished.

Happy PFF. I posted my PFF cards last night, but I won't be home when the Linky is posted.

I love old stadiums and their history but we are loosing them one by one as teams move into bigger and better new ones. Great card.

The town of Miami was so green then. I did not know the stadium, but I guess a stadium called the Orange Bowl must have been a great place. Happy PFF from Orange Amsterdam (it's Queensday today in the Netherlands - and orange is our royal colour).

Not knowing the names of American teams at all, I was confused by "home of hurricanes" in your title. I'm very pleased that I was confused. :)
