'Da Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are the SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!!! Woo!!Hoo!!
29-17 I must confess that I wasn't quite sure they'd be able to withstand the Chicago Bears defense, but alas they did! While I'm confessing, I should point out that I am not a huge fan of the NFL, I'm more of a college football
fan (GO VOLS!) However, one must make concessions now and again. I know, I know, you're thinking "HEY! Aren't you from Tennessee, Stacie? Shouldn't you be a fan of the Titans?" Well, yes I am from Tennessee, but the Titans have really never impressed me, not to mention the fact that they're originally not a Tennessee team. SO, why am I a fan of the Colts? Well, for those of you out there who may not know, the Colts quarterback is Peyton Manning, who was the QB for my beloved Volunteers.
Basically, Peyton is the only reason I cheer for the Colts. And in case you haven't heard, he's also the MVP for the game tonight.
The Colts played hard, did their best and were vindicated. Maybe another reason I'm supporting them is because of the way their coach, Tony Dungy and their owner, Jim Insay are so vocal about their love for and dependence upon God. I appreciate a person who gives credit where it's due and stands up for their beliefs and both of these men have done that repeatedly throughout the season. Congrats to the entire organization.

Go COLTS Go!!! (Although I really know nothing of football...except for maybe how the game is played...haha, I prefer to cheer for the Canucks, a hockey team, even though I have no idea how the game of hockey is played, except for a few things...and other things I'm still learning :)

What to say? I knew it. I predicted it. I should go into bookmaking:)

I'm not a big fan of the NFL, either (GO, Kentucky Wildcats!), but I was pulling for the Colts for the same reasons. Tony Dungy caught our attention when he was with the Bucs, and his faith came to national attention when his son died. This win couldn't have happened to a better person. And, of course, Peyton Manning...what's left to say?

Doc was pulling for the Colts, too, even though in his [much] younger days, he was a fan of the Bears. That was because his cousin played for the Bears in the 60s, at the same time Gale Sayers & Brian Piccolo played.

All in all, it was a good game. And my favorite commercial was the dog who wanted to Be Somebody, and was "transformed" into a dalmatian.
