“Jonnylons” has been a life-long Marlins fan – which isn’t hard since they’ve only been around in since ’93 and he’s been around a bit longer. He founded MarlinsNation.com in order to provide a voice to Marlins fans on the internet which he started when he was up in Tallahassee at Florida State and was stranded with no Marlins games on TV up in that market.
