Video: Sprinklers Turn on in the Middle of Dolphins/Seahawks Game

November 25, 2012 at 8:42 pm (Miami Dolphins, NFL, Rain, Ryan Tannehill, Seattle Seahawks, Sprinklers)

The scene looked vaguely like a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial.

It’s not unusual for a mid-day downpour to hit Miami, Florida. But something seemed amiss when the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks were playing under clear skies and bright sunshine … and a downpour all-of-a-sudden hit the field anyway.

This rain however, was man-made…

Via Yahoo! Sports:

With 1:53 left in the third quarter of the Miami Dolphins’ game against the Seattle Seahawks at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill ran for a 19-yard gain, taking the ball from the Miami 33-yard line to the Seattle 48.

And then … well, this happened:

The sprinklers went off on the Sun Life field, dousing everybody with water. One side judge ran away like the sprinklers were full of hot lava, while some players seemed to enjoy cooling off in the Miami heat. Someone found the off switch a few seconds later, and play resumed.
