“I could quite possibly be staring at the first day of the rest of my life,” Anthony said in a news conference in New York. “That’s quite exciting at this stage of the game. I’m a little nervous. I’d rather sing. That’s much easier to me?..It’s a storied franchise, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I’m going to try to make it to my seat because my knees are a little weak.”

“I’m a huge sports fan,” the 40-year-old star remarked in an interview with PEOPLE this morning. “These opportunities don’t come around too often. It’s quite an honor and a privilege to be able to sit here today saying that I’m a part-owner of an NFL team.”

The Dolphins went from a dismal 1-15 record in 2007 to 11-5 and the 2008 AFC East Championship, before losing to the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs.
