My Not-So-Little Ponies

Colts Jeopardy That's right, my Colts have made it back to the Super Bowl, three years after they won it against the Bears. The Jets gave them a good game at first, but I think it's safe to use the word relentless. Yes, just like that, Ponies! (Say it in a Cartman voice, for you "South Park" fans.) Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, two of their main receivers, didn't have big games; instead, Peyton went to a couple of younger guys, Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie. With four prolific receivers and a great running back in Joseph Addai, they're going to be hard to stop. Oh, and Peyton, of course. Can’t forget about him. heehee

The Saints barely won their game against the Vikings in what had to be one of the sloppiest playoff games I've seen in a while. There were like leventy-leven fumbles and turnovers and it was just plain fugly. Based on the Colts' consistency, the fact that the Colts have been to the Super Bowl before, and the Saints' struggles to win their game, Vegas oddsmakers are setting the early spread at Colts by four. Based on the play I saw in that game, the Colts would handle either team pretty well, but the Saints it will be. I happen to like the Saints, and I think it's great that they're doing well. I know it means a lot to the city of New Orleans, and I'm glad they made it to the Super Bowl. But they're goin' DOWN!

So I've got two weeks to wait before the big game. I'm going to be a basket case.

Who wants to watch it with me? We'll have so much fun as you watch me pace, listen to me hurl epithets, and observe my general and disturbing anxiety. Sounds like a blast, eh? Actually, it was a lot of fun to hang with other friends on Facebook who were watching today. We got sidetracked a few times with discussions of a player being a Mormon, and then Hugh Jackman, but it was all fun.

Yay Colts! I love you guys!



  1. I would love to watch the game with you!! Shared enthusiasm for sports is always great to experience. I was sad because there was no one around to watch the Spartans rally against the Gophers... but you will have Ken at the very least to watch the big game with.

    Go Colts!!

  2. What is this "football" and why can Horses play against Airplanes.
    It doesn't seem fair!

  3. I'd love to watch the game with you, but it seems a bit of a commute would be involved, although also adult beverages, sooo..... LOL Go Peyton!

  4. I love the rare occassion where I can stand both teams that are playing in the Super Bowl. It'd be a great story if the Saints won, but I sort of felt like yesterday was their Super Bowl.

    The only thing I don't like is having to wait two weeks instead of one. Let they hype begin.

  5. Honey, you know I love you but I will be TOTALLY rooting against you! My beloved NOLA is IN THE FREAKING Super Bowl!!!! This city was INSANE last night... I'm so glad I was here to enjoy it!

  6. I'm not a football fan, but it's always nice to know that two teams from cities I like will be playing in the Super Bowl. May the best man (men) win!

  7. Beth, oh sweetness and light, I am stopping by to inform you I have nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award, the details posted on my blog.


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
