I guess I can put “that”:http://juniorbird.com/archive/002184.php aside. I was all worried we’d get to see a third consecutive year of the Colts physically and morally dominating the Broncos; instead, the Steelers, who I’d completely written off (as had all the other handicappers), showed the Colts the door. So, next week, I get to root for the Brocs with no regrets, and, hey, if the Steelers win it, I can’t help but feel good for a bunch of 3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust scrappers from a big industrial town back East.
OK, maybe I’d be a little pissed if my Broncs don’t win. And I’ll root for the Seahawks, too, ’cause I think they’re meat for the Broncos in Super Bowl Xtra Large; the Panthers would make a tougher opponent. Think of that, Broncos over Seahawks for their first Lombardi Trophy since the Elway era? Makes me excited but also sad, Jake the Snake is great but he’s no John Elway. May they both win NFL Championships anyway.
Ding-dong, the Colts have lost, the wicked Colts have lost.
