Diva Jennifer Lopez and her salsa-singing hubby Marc Anthony held up Miami Dolphins jerseys with their names and birth dates inscripted during a news conference in New York City Tuesday announcing his minority ownership in the team.
“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.
