    Bumped for truth. The Colts are a great team, with what is now an excellent defense to go with the long-outstanding offense. Fortunately, this week the Pats are even a somewhat greater team.

    Now -- who among you recognizes the reference in the original post. Ken, maybe?

    EDITED to fix typos. I make way too many of same these days.

    You didn't need to give that much info for me to recognize it. :)

    It was the Oracle of Delphi. Croesus wanted to attack Persia, and asked "her" for "advice"(*). Her response was, "If you attack, a mighty kingdom will be destroyed."

    Unfortunately for Croesus, it was his kingdom that was destroyed.

    It reminds me of the Oracle of Proehl, who said "Tonight, a dynasty is born." :rofl:

    (*)Apparently, as near as I can tell from what I've read, the Oracle was a woman who got high off fumes emitted in/near the temple, and then made bizarre pronouncements that were left to temple attendants to "decipher." :eek:
