Dolphins' stadium receives new name in deal with Buffett

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins are renaming their home Landshark Stadium as part of a partnership with singer Jimmy Buffett.

Buffett's Margaritaville enterprise includes Landshark Lager, which is brewed by Anheuser-Busch.

Buffett and new Dolphins owner Stephen Ross are friends, and they plan to unveil a new logo for the stadium at a private event Friday. Buffett also will perform a song inspired by the Dolphins.

The stadium, which has lacked a corporate sponsor for several years, will be the site of the Super Bowl for the fifth time in February.

The name change from Dolphin Stadium is the fifth since the stadium opened in 1987. It's also home to the University of Miami football team and Major League Baseball's Florida Marlins.
