The list of celebrities to join the Dolphins continues. The latest to come on board – singer Marc Anthony. The team scheduled a news conference to be held Tuesday in New York for a “major corporate announcement” with Anthony.
Right now it’s not clear what role Anthony will play, and if he may become a minority owner. Last month singer Gloria Estefan and her husband, producer Emilio Estefan, bought a small stake in the team.
New Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also began a partnership in May with Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville enterprise, which includes Land Shark Lager. Buffett has yet to accept Ross’ invitation to become a minority owner, but the Dolphins’ stadium has been renamed Land Shark Stadium for this season. Buffett has also written a song for the team.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and ESPN president George Bodenheimer will attend the news conference, the Dolphins said. The team appears on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” on October 12th against the Jets, and Anthony may perform at the game.
