Jimmy Buffett Teams Up With Miami Dolphins

Jimmy Buffett Goes Back To Roots For 'Hotel'
Jimmy Buffett has accepted a business role with new Miami Dolphins owner and longtime friend Stephen Ross.

The team was mum Friday on details, despite reports that Dolphin Stadium might be renamed "Landshark Stadium" for at least one season. The lager is a product Buffett markets in a collaboration with Anheuser-Busch.

The Dolphins would say only that more information would be released at a news conference next Friday.

The stadium has lacked a corporate sponsor for several years, but could attract one now. Besides being home for the Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes and Florida Marlins, the stadium will host the Super Bowl in February.

Ross, a New York real estate tycoon, said after buying the Dolphins in January he wanted to rebrand the franchise.
