It's Saturday, Nov. 28, 1998. Three teams--let's say Nebraska, Penn State and Tennessee--are undefeated and ranked 1-2-3. The Cornhuskers are playing in the Big 12 title game, the Volunteers in the SEC title game and the Nittany Lions have already won the Big Ten. ABC's new bowl alliance is about to kick in and the Orange Bowl has the first true national title game, No. 1 vs. No. 2 at Joe Robbie Stadium on Jan. 2, 1999. Uh, oh. Nebraska wins. Tennessee wins.

On the morning of a Super Bowl game, the stadium is easy to find. Just look for the circus tents. The area around the stadium always looks like the world's biggest circus. As it did again Sunday. For much of the day at Joe Robbie Stadium, much of corporate America was holed up in the tents, the largest of which could have passed for the big top in the heyday of Ringling Bros.

"SAY OW." That's what the hat atop Junior Seau's head usually reads. It's the style he brings to the field, the reaction he gets from opponents. This time, the hat said something entirely different and certainly just as appropriate: AFC champions. Seau gladly placed it on his sweat-soaked hair. "Say Ow!" somebody shouted. "Say Wow!" a teammate replied. And that's just what everyone is saying about the Chargers' All-Pro middle linebacker, a major reason San Diego is at its first Super Bowl.

Elizabeth Robbie, who was at odds with some of her children over management of the family-owned Miami Dolphins, has claimed 30% of her late husband Joe's estate. The widow and her children will have to determine how to split the family business, which includes an 85% interest in the Dolphins and half-ownership of Joe Robbie Stadium, each estimated to be worth in excess of $100 million.

Nineteen people were injured, none seriously, after fans pounding on a glass partition at Joe Robbie Stadium broke it and sent glass flying into a lower level near the end of Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins, authorities said. Some people were treated at the scene, and others were taken to various local hospitals for treatment of cuts and bruises after the 7:10 p.m. EST incident near the end of the Colts' 31-20 victory, officials said.

Miami's Joe Robbie Stadium was not selected as one of nine sites to hold 1994 World Cup soccer games, but the stadium's manager confirmed Tuesday that the city still hopes to play host to the final. "We haven't been solicited, but when we placed our original bid and placed the deposit, we bid for all the possibilities of first-round games through to the final," said Glenn Mon, manager for Joe Robbie Stadium.

Dodger center fielder Brett Butler likes the way the Marlins have turned Joe Robbie Stadium into a baseball park and says it has the character of an American League park. "The way it jaunts out here and there and with the scoreboard above the left-field wall, it reminds me of Fenway Park," Butler said. "The long wall from right to center is hard as a rock because the seats are built against it, and then the wall lining left field has a lot of give.

Seeing Joe Robbie Stadium--the new $100-million home of the Miami Dolphins--rising out of the sand flats of South Florida, one thing comes to mind: Don't get Joe Robbie in a poker game and try to bluff him. That is what the city of Miami tried to do with the 71-year-old Dolphin owner. When civic administrators told him that they wouldn't build him a new stadium, that he could keep his team in the antiquated Orange Bowl and like it, Robbie called their bluff.

The U.S. national soccer team graciously accepted the congratulations of Vice President Al Gore, who waded through the locker room slapping the backs of players as if they had done something spectacular and not merely tied Bolivia, 1-1, Friday night in the Joe Robbie Cup. The young Americans, who played before 15,676 at Joe Robbie Stadium, hardly merited such accolades, although they are making some progress and now have a 1-1-4 record this year.

The Miami Dolphins had been struggling of late, losing three of their last six games. But Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, the Dolphins won, 23-17, to assure themselves of the home-field advantage in next week's wild-card playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs. "It's always good to win; it gives you momentum," said Dolphin quarterback Dan Marino, who completed 14 of 26 passes for 192 yards. "But the big thing is that we get to play at home."
