Today is the Colts game. Wa-hoo! I bought a new Peyton Manning jersey (Authentic Replica…kind of like “genuine imitation”). What does this mean? It means I paid $60 for essentially the same thing that the players wear. The one that is EXACTLY like the ones the players wear is anywhere from $160-$300. I’m not paying that much for a shirt. So this is my first Colts jersey. I put in my deposit for Colts season tickets for this fall. I won’t know if I will get them until sometime in April. Hope I get them, because I have invited several people to go with me. Kim doesn’t really want to go…she doesn’t enjoy football, loud noises, beer smells, etc. I don’t really enjoy the beer smell either, but that’s why you bring a garbage bag…to store your stuff under your seat (so it doesn’t get spilled on). This was good for me at the Colts-Chiefs game, because the 9 year old kid I sat next to (he and his dad were from Muncie) spilled his coke all over the floor near our seats. So all these people I invited to come with me, I told them that they can come on one condition: they have to wear a Colts jersey, and root for the Colts. Except if my brother comes out for the Chiefs game this fall…then he can wear Chiefs stuff. I am planning on making my own jersey that will be half Colts and half Chiefs. Maybe get half a Manning jersey and half a Johnson jersey, making the back name read “Manson” or something like that.
So I am at work right now, I leave for home around 7:30-ish, and go to bed. I get up at 3:00 to go to choir practice and church, and then I am going to go over to a friend’s house to watch the Colts game at 6:30. He has a 110″ high definition projection screen in his den. Wow! I watched the first half of the Colts-Ravens game at his house on this TV, and it is pretty cool. Feels like you are actually there, since the people are all life-size.
I am guessing on the outcomes of today’s games: Saints over Bears 27-24, Colts over Pats 20-10. Hope I’m right about the Colts.
