I always love when I'm traveling out west during Football season. Roll out of bed, grab a coffee and breakfast, then settle in with some good beers and watch football before lunch time.
Best part is, you still have your entire day to do whatever after the game is over.
Spike Lee did a short 30 for 30 on the greatest catch of all time and it focused on the OBJ, Tyree, and the Manningham catch the 2011 superbowl with Eli, Tyree, Plaxico, Coughlin, Odell. You know Plaxico owns the ball that Tyree caught because he caught the touchdown with it?
I forgot about the Tyree catch -- and now I'm wondering why that isn't brought up consistently in the 'best catch ever' argument -- I agree with you, the OBJ catch was a better catch, but when you factor in the timing and all the other things that went on with Tyree's, that was huge!
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
