no, SAD it what it is
That whole article was a bible of truth.
If you think it's bad now, just wait until one of them actually WINS something.
Hopefully that will happen right around the time they find Jimmy Hoffa, Judge Crater, Amelia Earhart or when the Red Sox win the World Series...oh wait a minute on that last ....make that win it again....
It just occurred to me that the Mannings are like Danica Patrick and Michelle Wie to ESPN. They are all pretty faces (the Mannings are "pretty" in a pure football skills-wise sort of way) that ESPN wants badly to see actually win something, but are rich and famous despite having never won anything yet.
In keeping along those lines, I think I shall now call Peyton "Anna Kournikova". Actually, it might work better for Mike Vick or Reggie Bush.
The Mannings are yet another example of the "Cult of Personality", which has almost completely eradicated whatever dignity remained in the sports/entertainment world. Actual on-field accomplishments are helpful, but not mandatory. The descent into the abyss began with television, was accelerated by Mohammed Ali, and was kicked down, with both feet, by espn. If I am not in Greater Boston, then I watch nothing but the games. I'll wait until after SB Championship #4, then I will soak up every tv and radio and internet channel forced to bestow begrudging respect upon us. Meanwhile, teams that rely on pretty, empty uniforms like the Mannings will continue to watch helplessly from their couches.
Amen to that
