When you hear Robert Mathis, a four-time Pro Bowl choice say, “we needed a leader and we had heard lots about Andrew Luck. He gave us all that we needed and more,”. Combine that statement with the praise given to Luck by a man who has played more than 170 career games, the great Reggie Wayne, then you can feel the growth of our new era. Amongst men that have been and probably still are his idols, Andrew Luck at the Pro Bowl conducted himself as a seasoned career professional and made every Colts fan proud of what we have growing in Indianapolis.
If you are a patriotic Australian you are said to be “TRUE BLUE”; well, that works two ways for this true blue guy and I thank everyone who has contacted me stating they are enjoying my Aussie point of view. So it is with some curiosity that I observe what has happened to Manti Te’o. The poor guy has been the VICTIM in what can only be described as a form of cyber bullying. He got set up, possibly a college prank and that’s obvious to a blow in (new comer) like me. If he is guilty of anything, he is guilty of being a trusting person who felt compassion for another’s plight – that’s all the poor guy is guilty of; there is nothing shonky about Manti Te’o who is a very talented and honest young man. So, blow me down, how does that affect his NFL Draft? You can only hope that the media don’t beat up on this person for simply accepting something on face value. I’m on the other side of the world and can see what has happened so cut the kid a break.
So this Sunday, I’ll be buying all the ingredients for SUPER BOWL MONDAY! Weird, hey. No I won’t be twenty four hours late, it’s just that International Dateline stuff. But who will prevail? I don’t mind ‘cause the Colts aren’t there so I’ll just enjoy the football, But one of my clients said, “Come on Doc, that’s a cop out. Who do you reckon will win?”. If I had to place a bet, I think Flacco and the Ravens will be hard to beat if the 49ers fail to cover Joe’s deep plays. But if you reckon different, I won’t pick a blue (fight, argument) with you because it just ain’t the BLUES turn this year. But it will be….it will be. Hope you all have a great Sunday in Indianapolis or wherever you might be and enjoy the battle on the gridiron!
