Just a couple days ago we learned that former Padres president Tom Garfinkel turned down a CEO job with IndyCar. Today we find out why. The Miami-Herald is reporting that he's accepted a position with the NFL's Miami Dolphins, which coincidentally was the job that current Padres President Mike Dee vacated.
Tom Garfinkel, who has served as a high-level executive for two Major League Baseball teams but has never worked in the NFL, will be the Miami Dolphins’ new president and chief executive officer, industry sources said Sunday.
An announcement is expected Monday.
This whole situation feels like the sports equivalent of Shania Twain's love life. Remember when we found out that her husband, music producer "Mutt" Lange, decided to divorce Twain to marry her best friend? Then a few months later it was revealed that Twain and her friend's ex-husband had found comfort and consolation in each others arms? And do you further remember when they then quickly married? Remember how weird and sexy that felt? That's how I feel right now. Man! I feel like a woman.
