Be careful what you wish for...

At one point late in today’s game, I caught myself yelling out “C’mon Brady!”

Yes, I like many Colts fans were cheering for the hated Patriots to defeat the Chargers. Is it wrong to want to play the team that has caused us so much playoff misery? The thing that matters is the Patriots’ victory gives us the opportunity to host our first AFC championship game. Also, we won’t have to travel to San Diego to try to stop LaDainian Tomlinson.

So now we have a date with the most clutch playoff quarterback in the game. Be careful what you wish for.

Oh, and Baltimore, please get over losing the Colts. It has been 23 years now. You didn’t love them enough when you had them, so they left. The team played in front of a half full stadium, you wouldn’t build them a new one, and the Maryland state legislature forced Irsay’s hand. The Baltimore fans love to claim the football gods will not allow the Colts to win a championship while they are still called the Colts. They cry about all of this, yet they stole the Browns from Cleveland in much of the same manner.

It’s petty when your grown adult fans flip off our players, our fans and even get in their face and yell at them while they are visiting your city. It’s scary when one of your newspaper columnists has to write a blog post begging people not to riot if your team loses. It’s cheap when your public address announcer refuses to call us by our name instead he introduces us as the “The football team from Indianapolis”.

Let the healing begin.

Thanks for the sentiments about Baltimore fans. What a bunch of classless people.

oh Torp...I was right there with you cheering on Tom Brady. I think we have a better chance beating them here over going to San Diego....the lesser of two evils.

Colts vs Saints. Two small market teams that are ready for a shot.

I'm just too giddy to say anything that's not nonsensical.

Butchie, I guess you guys don't have a vip area. I didn't remember seeing one at least.

I was in the Patio (Spin) that night. It's small.

Oh, how is that place?

I haven't heard of spin. I guess the last place didn't last too long. Wasn't it a piano bar or something stupid like that.
