Okay, with the picture I've had on my profile for the last few months, I thought I would take a moment to finally write a post about the Indianapolis Colts! They are going to the Super Bowl, just in case you didn't catch that on Sunday!
You would not believe the amount of controversy over the game several weeks ago where we pulled our starters against the New York Jets and the Jets won; and found a spot in the play off games. It is nice to see everyone finally aligned in Indy about the coach's decision to rest the starters so that they could win against the Ravens and then the Jets in the play offs.
It was predicted that the last two weekends in Indy brought in $50 million in hotels, restaurants and merchandise; that HAS to be great for our economy...maybe enough to make a dent in the cost of the new stadium?
I am absolutely rooting for the Colts, no question. But New Orleans has a special place in my heart because Drew Brees is a Purdue grad and he has Indiana roots in him as a result.
My only prayer, for my heart, is that unlike the 9 games this season we will NOT have to fight to come from behind to win the game. Otherwise I will be popping Rolaids like Tic Tacs!
Hope you all enjoy the game!
