We know the Colts deserve to be in this game. We don't need to trash talk to prove or back that up.
As a fan, I have never been more proud of an Indiana team than I am of these Colts. I loved the '95 team. Jim Harbaugh, Tony Bennett, Floyd Turner, Ken Dilger, Tony Siragusa, they were all my favorites. This 2006 team has, for me, become my favorite. They are a mirror reflection of their coach: classy, tough, dignified, and resolute. It has been such a joy to watch this team play all year, overcoming all kinds of adversity.
This is the power of sports, and much of the reason we watch sporting events and follow teams. We like to watch players overcome their own weaknesses and rise above what we think they can do. Remember, it is the journey that you must savour, and this journey has been one I will remember for a very long time.
Now, we get to enjoy the moment. The journey has taken the team, and the fans, to Miami. This Super Bowl has changed Indy. Everyone is decked out in blue and white. It is amazing to see how the Indy has taken to the Colts.
For me, I will live blog the Super Bowl, with new entries posted every quarter. I'll do my best to lift some comments and place them in the new entries. I plan to enjoy this moment, enjoy the fact that the team I enjoy so much is playing in the biggest game in America. I hope we all enjoy it together, here.
