Sinking to a New Low

We all knew that Joey Harrington would not be well-received when he made his return to Detroit on Thanksgiving, but was it really necessary for booing to be encouraged?

Prior to kickoff against the Dolphins, Miami's defensive starting lineup was introduced. Only defensive players were supposed to be announced over the PA system, but someone made the decision to add Joey Harrington to the list. Harrington's picture was shown on the videoboards and while being introduced, the song "Piano Man" was played in the background. Not only was this done to encourage booing, but it was a cheap shot at the fact that Harrington plays the piano in his spare time.

Harrington just laughed it off and said that it was clever. Then again, after embarrassing your former team that treated you so badly in the past, I wouldn't think to much of it either.
