Yeah, a very good friend of mine is a HUGE Dolphin fan...he was actually the guy who came with me to Miami in '97 and '98...we even toyed with the idea of, had the Pats lost in '97, staying in Miami to watch the wild card playoff game (don't know if you remember, but the Pats and Dolphins were locked into facing each other in the WC round that season...whoever won the final regular-season matchup would host the game). Since the Pats won, the WC was then played in NE, so we didn't stay in Miami for another weekend.
I was actually out shopping for furniture during the 62-7 loss, but heard radio "highlights" as I was driving around. I felt horrible for my friend. He is just as into Marino as you are, and I know that loss was really hard for him to take.
Like you with Marino's last playoff win making his exit a little easier, for me it's Marty's last 50 games of the 2012 season (including playoffs)...especially outplaying Lundqvist in the ECF. It's rarely been pretty since, but at least he still a nice vintage Marty run near the end.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
