Super Bowl Thoughts...
Posted on: February 5, 2008 12:20 pm
As I was watching the big game, I found myself torn on who I would have liked to see win. I think history was made either way. On one hand, as a Colts Fan, I dislike the Patriots. Also, there is the Manning connection, not to mention that Jared Lorenzen (Giants Back up QB) played at Kentucky, of which I'm also a fan. However, being able to witness history would have been a very neat thing to see. I am young enough that the 72 Dolphins were not from my time, so there is no connection there. I do remember the 85 Bears, but that was not the "perfect season." I found myself just watching the game from a completly neutral standpoint until the fourth quarter. Do I root for the Pats, and allow myself to witness history, or root for the Giants, due to the player connections? That question was answered by an Eli Manning touchdown pass, to Tyree, that gave the Giants their second lead. I found myself cheering, actually SCREAMING, that finally, yes finally, we would get to quit hearing about the Patriots. And the history made by the other way? Brothers were chosen Super Bowl MVP. Peyton in XLI and Eli the next year, XLII!
