Believe it or not, I’m as sick of hearing about the Patriots-Colts game as you are. The “Good vs. Evil” crap is bound to give me an aneurysm if it goes on much longer and it seems the discussions on the topic are getting increasingly lame.
I think Colts fans would be seething if they were listening to WEEI this week. I don’t know if anyone else heard the Big Show’s segment on how two particular Colts’ fans were preparing for tomorrow’s game (loaded gun rack, new copies of ‘Incest Weekly’). Even my boyfriend said, “Oh shit!”
Dale and Holley ripped a Colts fan a new one yesterday when the caller insisted that the Colts would win because Rodney Harrison has been completely ineffective against the Colts offense in last year’s two meetings and he expected the same tomorrow. Yeah, I laughed too.
I also think “contrarian” is the word of the week after reading it a trillion times in all the Pats-Colts articles. Dungy is a contrarian, Belichick is a contrarian, I am a contrarian, you are a contrarian, we’re all contrarians. To me, it sounds like some alien species from Star Trek.
Data: Captain, we’re being hailed by the Contrarians.
Captain Picard: On screen.
Worf: Captain, do you want me to arm the photon torpedoes?
Anyway, as for my prediction… I’m going with Patriots 38, Colts 28. All other factors aside, using the Cowboys contest as a litmus test, I find it hard to imagine the Colts defense slowing the Patriots to a halt. I think the Patriots are playing just a little bit better right now. The only thing I am certain of is after tomorrow (maybe Monday), we won’t have to hear about Patriots-Colts for a long time.
