Let's go Colts!!!

No one had any idea that three and a half years later, I'd be parked on an Interstate overpass, between first and second periods at my high school, watching a convoy of Mayflower trucks bring those Colts from Baltimore to Indy. My parents applied for season tickets, but so did about 200,000 other Central Indiana families. Fortunately, some friends did get tickets and I saw two games in the (then) Hoosier Dome that fall.
From the Mike Pagel era, through the Halloween Eric Dickerson trade, Jim Harbaugh's almost Hail Mary to the Steelers game last year (where the final minute never happened... because I just couldn't deal with it if it did), I've remained a Colt fan ever since.
Patience, finally, delivers its reward. Tonight, the Colts beat the Patriots again, this time in Indianapolis, and this time to win the AFC Championship and a trip to the Super Bowl, in two weeks in Miami.
Chicago, you're going down! ;-)
This is an open thread. Talk football, or whatever else is on your mind this Sunday evening.
