Cali Comfort BBQ says
01/02/1982 - EPIC IN MIAMI viewing party at Cali Comfort BBQ on Saturday, April 1.

The 'Epic in Miami' is the name given to the NFL AFC divisional playoff game between the San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins on January 2, 1982 in the Miami Orange Bowl. The game, won by the Chargers in overtime, 41–38, is one of the most famous in NFL because of the conditions on the field, the performances of players on both teams, and the numerous records that were set. It was also referred to in the Miami Herald as the "Miracle That Died", while Sports Illustrated dubbed it the "Game No One Should Have Lost". The game aired on NBC with Don Criqui and John Brodie calling the action and Bryant Gumbel serving as the anchor.

So come down and celebrate with old and new friends, enjoy some slow smoked Cali BBQ, and share your epic memories. NO DRAMA please.

Post-game quotes
Chargers coach Don Coryell after the game:

"I have coached for 31 or 32 years and this is tremendous...There has never been a game like this. It was probably the most exciting game in pro football history."

Shula agreed:

"A great game...Maybe the greatest ever."

Chargers running back Hank Bauer:

"The locker-room celebration was more low key than other locker rooms I'd been in. It was more of 'Thank God that's over. Thank God we got out alive.'
