JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville University will have a special guest when the Dolphins tip off Monday night against Mercer, as The Ultimate Sports Fan Tour will be stopping by Swisher Gymnasium for Day 359 of its year-long tour.

Matt Malm, a sports fan from Charlotte, N.C. who has driven over 100,000 miles to all 48 states in the continental United States in the Ultimate Sports Fan motorhome, will be on hand when the Dolphins take on the Bears at 7:30 p.m. as JU continues its quest for the 2001 Trans America Athletic Conference Championship.

Malm's tour began at last year's Super Bowl in Atlanta, Ga., and will come to an end on Sunday, Jan. 28 in Tampa, Fla., with Super Bowl XXV between the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants. Following the St. Louis Rams' win over the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXIX, Malm has been to a different sporting event at the college and professional level in various cities every night since.
