This is one of the few times that I will talk about a sport other than tennis, but I just cannot resist due to some ties I have to Indy.
The Indianapolis Colts claimed the AFC Championship title just now and will join the Chicago Bears at the Super Bowl in Florida in two weeks. It is the Colts’ first time at the Bowl since 1970 (back then still as the Baltimore Colts).
They defeated the New England Patriots 38-34 at the RCA Dome in Indy. After the first half, the score was 21-6 in favor of the Patriots. The Colts always had to catch up, tied with the Patriots three or four times but never passed them, up until the very last minute when Joseph Addai scored a touchdown. With only twenty seconds left on the clock, Marlin Jackson intercepted a pass by Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady and it was a done deal.
This game was a real thriller and well worth staying up for. I just hope Peyton Manning will be in as good a shape against the Bears.
