    No one who has followed my off-and-on postings over the last few years could think of me as anything but a homer, and one whose dislike of the Dolts is exceeded only by my dislike of the Jests.

    I thought there was no way I would ever root for Indianapolis, but, alas, that dam Peyton did me in. From Reiss's Peices:

    Quarterback Peyton Manning
    "I really appreciated it, Tedy Bruschi came up, Kevin Faulk, and Tom [Brady] just wished me luck. I just appreciated the class those guys demonstrated.


    How can I take this other than support of BB and a direct slap at Tomlinson.

    I can carry a grudge with the best of them, but I am not a churl. I will be rooting for Indianapolis against Chicago.

    I'll still call them the Dolts, though.

    Go Dolts!

    I am totally with you, I like Manning, and I will be rooting for him in the superbowl for sure. It sucks we are not there, but 'it is what it is" ...I hope he gets his ring...:)

    I don't see what Manning's post game comments have to do with anything. They are a fancy offensive football team that has manipulated the NFL rules to promote arena-style play. They play in a dome and defeated our team in a game which included a bevy of questionable calls, tearing our hearts out. Their Qb has had his @$$ kissed since he walked into the league, their president is a true classless scum-b@g, their owner is from maybe the most notorious family in NFL history. They are the last team I would even consider rooting for. A few nice words from Manning after a crushing defeat change nothing. It was more about Manning's aw-shucks image than anything else IMO. I would have preferred a dead-fish handshake. Yes, I'm a sore loser.:)

    I always root for the AFC anyway...

    I cannot stand the NFC (or the National League in baseball or the Western Conference in the NBA...you get the idea)...

    So, I guess by osmosis, I'll be rooting for the Colts, but honestly, I won't even watch the game nor one bit of the coverage leading up to it or after it...

    This game is just so friggin' vanilla...Colts & Bears? Blah!

    The past few years, we've been blessed with some great Super Bowl matchups, starting with Titans vs Rams, Ravens v Giants, the three Pats SBs, Raiders vs Tampa Bay, and Pittsburgh vs. Seattle last year...

    But this year? "Gag me with a spoon! Like, fer sure!"

    The BBC channel is playing a "Footballers Wives" marathon during the Super Bowl. Maybe I'll check that show out for the first time.

    A&E also has "Law & Order" running all night on 02/04.

    ESPN has the Euro Figure Skating Championships and ESPN2 has World Strongest Man competitions all night...

    Now THAT'S good television!

    Anything's better 6 straight hours of Peyton Manning, which is what it will be between the commercials and his doofus piehole on the screen all day!

    I'm with you, Pony. I can't root for Indy out of principle. Besides that, I believe Manning was just acknowledging the fact that our guys were classy to him; I don't necessarily read anything in his comments reaching back to our time in San Diego. Plus it's easy to be gracious in the glow of victory.

    Being a former long-time New Orleans native(and lived there when the storm hit)-as much as I wanted the Saints to go to the Super Bowl, the Mannings ARE the most prominent figures in this city.

    Frankly-if it was a Colts/Saints Super Bowl, I would have been dissapointed by the outcome either way. Personally-I would rather see Peyton FINALLY get that monkey off his back. At least the Saints have built a foundation for years to come.
