Seriously, this post will be lamesauce. Go away.

If you had told me last year or even the year before that MY TEAM would be 0-10 THE YEAR WE HOST THE SUPER BOWL…..I would have laughed in your face!

Everybody knows the Colts are a top-of-the-line team! They’re matchless. Awesome. They have the NFL’s best quarterback! Peyton Manning is superhuman on the football field. He’s respected by everyone! Players, fans, coaches & opposing teams!

But, for the first time in blah blah seasons (Peyton has had a record 227 starts). Which means, he doesn’t stand on the sideline and watch any games…he plays!

Until this year.

This year, the one that the Colts haven’t one a single game all season.

He’s standing. On the sideline. Looking bewildered and frustrated. Much like his fans and the fans who cheer the big blue franchise on everyweek. I’ve even noticed the sports announcer’s shaking their heads at what they see each week. It’s unbelievable!

Not this team!

It’s been painful to watch. By no means, do I blame Peyton Manning for the entire season of losses. I am intelligent football savvy enough to see there are other men on the field getting paid to play. It just seems coincidental that since he’s been out with a serious surgery recoop that the team has fallen to pieces. He’s known for being a great leader. But he’s not the only one playing. It’s a team, right?

I love the Colts. Most of my friends….love the Colts. I was so excited about this year’s SUPER BOWL!! Not anymore. I feel bummed! Embarrassed even. Indianapolis is a crazy fun town. What a smear of reality in the face of so many fans it will be to watch the entire city fill up with fans from other teams. Indy is a town of blue, Colts blue!

I’m not a fairweather fan. I promise. It’s been torture to watch them lose every week. It’s just not how the Colts do things. To call it humbling is almost insulting too. The Colts are known as a classy franchise. They don’t play dirty, they aren’t showy…..

They are just THE COLTS!

PS
I haven’t worn any Colts gear….all season! Come on, don’t judge! It’s just too painful! Now, do you see why I titled this post lame?

BLUE FRIDAY

Friday, September 9th, 2011

In honor of Blue Friday, I think it’s only appropriate for Colts fans (like me) to take a moment blogpost of silence. Last night’s awful news of our beloved QB Peyton Manning and his third neck surgery have forced me into a big boohoo of sadness! As was reported, it is very likely that #18 will not return to the playing field at all this season. I’m speechless and uber sad!

I know it’s just football, ya’ll! But seriously! I LOVE THE COLTS!!! This will now be a totally different team with a new Quarterback. Let’s just hope Kerry Collins can step into such a role! {Wishing him the best!}

Sunday/Monday football just won’t be the same at my house.

So, don’t mind me…I’ll just be wearing my blue and cheering my team on anyway!

God bless #18! GET WELL SOON, Peytie Pie!

Goin to the Super Bowl!

Ally, Me, Gates & Tyler partying before the game!!

It’s what we’ve been working towards all season! No, I don’t have a mouse in my pocket! I just think like I’m on the team…..afterall, I do watch every game (Colts that is)! Today was the most anticipated game yet. We planned and prepped until we were almost too late to bother watching.

Oh….the handy dvr! It is our friend! We managed just fine zipping through all those commercials. Our beloved Colts struggled a bit there at the first half….but pulled it off when it counts most. Whew! I can’t describe the happy dance going on in my heart! My people, are so excited! It is going to be a great Super Bowl XLIV!

Now…..who will be there with us? Hmmm, I call New Orleans! Plus, I bet hubby and Gavin that it would be Colts vs. Saints. If I win….I get a new purse. TJ Maxx discount purse that is. Maybe someday…..a Coach or a Dooney! But not this time. 🙂

What I Did On My Fall Break Vacation

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Remember every year at the beginning of school…..the teacher would have you write about your summer vacation? Yea, me too! Today is Monday….also known as…..the day everyone in my family has to snap back to reality and get back to school. Shoot! I could use a day or so to get myself a little more psyched up. Can you sense my back to school apprehension? I figured you could.

It was a great and glorious little break from reality. Four days of sleeping in and hanging out. Just what the doctor ordered (if he was ordering that is). On Thursday, we girls stayed home in our pj’s much of the day. It was hubby’s birthday so I did some cooking and made some of his favorite foods. The evening was spent together eating and watching his choice of movie (yes, we live crazy in our family)…Transformer’s #2. It turned out to be my favorite so far.

On Friday, the plan was to visit IU. We took off in that direction with a box of winter needs for sweetboy and an overnight bag for Ally. She had been dying to spend the night with him ever since he started school. I mean, who wouldn’t want to sleep on a concrete floor of a dude’s dorm room? Duh! She loved the visit. She did tell me the next day that she doesn’t know why Gavin doesn’t come home more…..the food at home is MUCH better! 🙂

We flew back into town that night right at 8:00pm. Just in time for the baby and her peeps to peel out for some fun at Fear Fair. Again, there we sat……”empty nesters”! We made use of our time alone and scarfed down leftover birthday food and watched our favorite Thursday night shows on DVR. Our life is one of sheer envy, I know. Just dream….it could happen to you too. 🙂

We couldn’t just stop the fun on Sunday…..our Colts! Man, they are on fire! 6-0 !! What else can I say? They’re just awesome! After the game we headed out with our “friends” Mike & Amy….(yea I’m using that term loosely) to the Mennonite Church outside of town. They were hosting The Woodsmen in concert. It was a loud gospel celebration! One worthy of ringing ears and happy hearts. We had fun, really!

Now I wish I could just end it there….but that’s not quite all. We thought it would be fun to go to McDonald’s after the “concert” and talk. I really wanted an iced coffee but I knew better than to hype my brain up like that so I settled for a coke. Oh well…I’ve spent the last 11 hours dreaming of sleeping. Yea, my eyeballs were half open all night. I should crash and burn sometime after lunch today.

And that, my friends…is what I did on my fall break vacation. Don’t hate me!
