Ah, so close, yet so far away. What a season, what a game! I guess you can’t win ’em all… Manning didn’t pull a Manning. He won the game. I thought he was ready to unravel in the first half but he collected himself and earned his spot in Super Bowl XLI.
Sorry, Jim, but that’s the Super Bowl. Manning is going to win in two weeks. He and Tony Dungy are going to finally, after all the hype, all the talk, all the media, win a Super Bowl.
It sucks that the Patriots didn’t win but as of right now, I feel relieved. That game was painfully stressful. My dad, the genius armchair GM/Analyst/Coach/Football know-it-all, said it best… it’s not the game that’s enjoyable. It’s the victory celebration afterwards.
That’s about all I can muster now. I’m drained. Congrats to all the Indy fans. And to them I say, enjoy the next two weeks. It’s going to be a blast.
