It is just a football game played by highly paid professional athletes.
Both Indianapolis and New Orleans are beset by huge economic and social problems that will not be fixed by a mere Super Bowl victory or victories. And, it has been less than a month since an earthquake devastated Haiti and left 200,000 dead and 1.5 million homeless.
That is what I keep telling myself.
Okay. I really need to get over the Colts losing the Super Bowl.
I love the Indianapolis Colts. I loved them when them during the Mike Pagel, Gary Hogeboom (though i guess he was a scab, which isn’t cool), Jack Tradeau, Chris Chandler, Jeff George, and Jim Harbaugh eras. I cried when Steve Emtman blew his knee out and the only time I missed following a Colts game during the Peyton Manning era was when I spent a semester in Jerusalem during the fall of 1999.
Still, we just should have a few more Super Bowl rings.
Time to move on.
Though, it looks like the Colts are the favorites to win it all next year..
