Who Dat

The New Orleans Saints upset the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in tonight's Super Bowl game. As the Star headline reads, "Manning's magic ends." Reading about Colts' owner Jim Irsay plans to offer Manning a life-time contract with a signing bonus of $50 million and $20 million a year, it's hard to shed any tears for Manning. The Saints seemed more determined to win tonight than the Colts.

Hated to see the Colts lose. But the best part of the night was noth having to seek that jerk Jim Irsay lift up the Lombardi trophy.

Manning will always have "magic".

Nah, the best part was knowing that Timmy, Kato and Carl and Lincoln didn't attend the Super Bowl together.....

The NFL is rigged, totally. Our defense played something more similar to flag football than full contact football. When I heard that NO had never even been to the Superbowl, I knew the fix would be in. Trust me, the players on the sidelines really don't care all that much. They still walk away with their money, no one gets a cut in pay for losing the "Big Game," or should I say "Big Entertainment Extravaganza?"

Spook, there is a winner and losers share for the Super Bowl. The winner's share is bigger. They don't play the game just for their regular season salary.

If last night's game was rigged, the Colts would have been the ones throwing it, because that officiating crew stayed the heck out of the way.

Nah, that was a true game. The Colts had massive egg on their faces when that on-side kick took them completely by surprise.

The Saints were simply a vastly superior team. The Vikes would have laid a similar treatment on the Colts.

The Colts need to draft another QB - fast. Manning's done.

The Colts never recovered from the onsides kick. It seemed to keep them dazed for the remainder of the game. I personally think it should have been challenged as I dont think NO recovered the ball.

The best part was IU guy Tracy Porter sealing the deal. Fellow IU standout Courtney Roby had a nice game as well on special teams.

I wonder if the Colts can afford such a deal without us also having to kick in a percentage of convention center revenues to Jimmy.
