Well sure, our season is over and when I watch the games these days the neighbors aren’t complaining about the shouting coming from our household at five o’clock on Monday mornings, but nevertheless, it is an interesting time. You guys lit the passion I have for this game on the gridiron and I am loving the playoffs even though my best friends aren’t on the paddock. The love of the game is strong within me; I feel the force! Certainly it is interesting to watch this quality football from a less involved passion.
Most certainly at Indianapolis we appreciate quality and there has been some great quality coming through the ranks in every playoff game. Many of the games revealed quality plays and quality players, so to those who provided so much to our game, I am sure that from every spectator of the game, thank you.
The Ravens “BLINDSIDED” Denver; who saw that coming? Patriots took care of business so “Tom cruise”s into a Championship Game. Falcons flew fantastically close to win the battle of the birds but there are those who say their heart lies in San Francisco. Yes, interesting times indeed. I won’t try to predict who might win next week; I thought it was going to be a Broncos Green Bay Super bowl, so hey, what would I know?
Still, that leaves me with preparations for SUPER BOWL MONDAY!! I always take the day off when the Super Bowl is being played. It’s more a help-your-self to the food and beer day, but there are always hot dogs with all the trimmings, buffalo wings and many of my dips. The favored dip amongst my visitors is simple: Canned crab mixed with chopped canned artichokes, add parmesan cheese and mayonnaise then bake until some brown tips form and serve with crusty bread. Breakfast of Champions, that is! Well, the game starts around ten in the morning, so a couple of beers while I make the dips then it’s dips and beer until half time. Finally Hot dogs and Buffalo wings with more beer during half time and the remainder of the afternoon. It sounds like a lot of beer and I’ll be “dinky-di” (Australian for genuine, honest), it’s a heck of a lot of beer, but we put on a good shindig (Aussie for party). Some of us are cactus (non-functional) by the afternoon but there is always an assigned driver or you can just crash on our floor. So for any Colts fan that finds themselves in Sydney on Super Bowl Monday, you’re welcomed here around my billabong to indulge in some amber liquid and just appreciate quality time with someone who will always be COLTSTRONG!
