Today is a sad day for the Colts, Peyton Manning, Indy, all of Indiana, and Colts fans everywhere–including us out here in the desert. Our beloved quarterback, Peyton Manning, was released from the team today.While I’m not a native Hoosier, and I’ve only recently (since being married) become a Colts fan, Peyton Manning is the first NFL quarterback I’ve ever been a fan of. The Colts are my team.Stephen, on the other hand, has been a Colts’ fan since Jim Harbaugh was the quarterback. Love for Colts football runs pretty deep in his heart. Last night, as we walked around our neighborhood, he explained to me the ins and outs of the situation which led to Peyton being released today.
We’re not fair weather fans, so the Colts are still our team. But it just won’t be the same without Manning. Obviously, we’ll always be Manning fans too. He’s a classic.
