76 ‘likes’. 330 posts. One ‘like’ per 4.3 posts. More than 1 ‘like’ a day---every day---since he joined the forum. And now, add to this impressive resume’ the title of Assistant General Manager. Allow me to introduce to you a member of the forum whom many of you know already as BrentMc11.
Brent and I first began talking two weeks after I joined the forum, meeting by way of my blog, “My Heart and My Mind Were Arguing Last Night”. At first, it was mere formality, as were many of my conversations
Sorry for the discombogualtion and erratic release of my blogs over the past while. I've been so busy recently that I've had to change my cell phone answering machine to say this: "Hey! WeSpy's voice mail is broken, but this is his refrigerator; speak slowly and I’ll stick a note to myself with one of these nifty magnets!"
The shame is, it hasn't really cut down on all those annoying people who call and leave no message at all but expect you to call them back anyhow. (Oops, think that belonged
I will be doing two comparisons for each game on the Colts schedule, rather than one, as I had originally planned. The reason for this is that I have already done my mock draft and mock free agency and built my roster as I desired it, but will have only analyzed 3 to 4 games by the time the draft is over and Indy's roster is more complete.
I am doing these game-by-game evaluations to see how the Colts will match up in 2012 with the other teams on their schedule, and my predictions would not be
My Mind and Heart have rather enjoyed this make-believe journey as the "Men in Charge" in the Indianapolis Front Office. I am delivering their free agency pursuits to you now, largely similar to how I informed you of their tentative draft. Since all of this is merely setting the stage for their week by week analysis of every game on the Colts schedule, I have spared you all the dialogue and tried to get down to business. Once their choices in free agency and the draft are settled in, a complete
At last my Heart and Mind agreed on something. Oh, don't get me wrong, they've shared views before---but have never been able to COME to an agreement. You see, the only time that they have ever agreed on something is when they both shared the same view originally---never before have they disagreed and found a comfortable compromise.
Last night ended their historic run as they put together a mock draft that they both agreed on.Of course, that was only after much shouting and many nasty insults b
Yes, he is guilty. And if he vehemently denies it by comment on this blog, you will know that the old quote is true which says, "A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory..." Be careful, southwest1, your age might become a hot topic in the Miscellaneous section of the forum!
Anyhow, it all started when he commented on my profile feed and said this: "...care to speculate and our win/loss percentage this year?" Of course, I believe he meant it in jest in the light-hearted mood of the
Contrary to popular belief, both optimists and pessimists contribute to society, though in significantly different ways. The optimist, you see, invents the airplane, while the pessimist invents the parachute... Yet while we can cut the pessimists in the world some slack, Indianapolis Colts cornerback Jacob Lacey was short on praise in the 2011 NFL season by about 100%. The prevailing opinion around the forum seems to be that if the optimist provides the airplane and the pessimist provides the pa
For the past 13 years, it could be argued that Jeff Saturday has been the classiest player in the National Football League. When one says, "Jeff Saturday," smiling eyes, a friendly grin, a hearty laugh, and an unquestioned work ethic instantly come to mind. The Colts have to make a decision about him soon, and surprisingly, many fans are divided over what course of action to take. So, I asked my Heart and my Mind if they thought that the Colts should bring their hardy center back to the squad fo
Before I begin to recount the dialogue that my Mind and my Heart have shared over the past few days, let me first apologize for the delay in getting these posted here on my blog. My Mind and my Heart have continued to debate as usual, and I have continued chronicling those discussions for the stimulation and oftentimes amusement of my readers. However, a nasty cough, pestiferous sniffle, and irritating sinus drainage have kept me from posting those here on this blog.
Let me also (for the benefi
For the last nine years Robert Mathis has been forcing fumbles and sacking quarterbacks and generally causing havoc on the rest of the NFL. He's done it by following College Football Hall of Famer Bowden Wyatt's advice, which goes like this: "Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in a bad humor."
Today, he is the topic in a debate to decide whether or not the Colts front office should keep him. My Mind and my Heart were all studied up and ready for the discussion, each thinking that he
Will Rogers once said, "A lie will travel around the world twice while truth is still getting his boots on." As I've scanned the forum this past week, it seems to me that truth is having a hard time finding his boots, much less putting them on. Speculations, rumors, and happenstance abound. At a time such as this, when everyone is looking for a real answer, an unquestionable truth, and are sick and tired of theories---I have decided to add my speculation to the list and keep them hanging grumpil
After performing two consecutive stand-up comedy acts last week on Friday and Saturday, teaching Sunday School and Jr. Church, and preaching in the evening service at my local church---my Mind and my Heart were bushed. I decided to change up the format a little for this week, and have entered this blog tonight to let you in on what'll take place.
I contacted several moderators and multiple popular posters to see what would be an issue prevalent to Colts fans to discuss this week; and got a rela
Whew! What a week. The Super Bowl was fantabulous, Indianapolis was the best host city in years, and the media covered all the angles---no, wait, they just pulled out all their articles from four years ago... Copy and paste covers a multitude of sins...and typos, too.
Anyhow, one of the main topics discussed all week was Peyton Manning. Questions ranged from his health to his children and seemingly never ended, but the question that led to the topic of this week's blog was even termed 'blasphe
'My Heart and My Mind Were Arguing Last Night...And They Talked About the Super Bowl'
I sent an e-mail out a few days ago about the Super Bowl. And no, it wasn't to the players and coaches involved, telling them to make it more entertaining than the Pro Bowl was. The e-mail went out to my Grandfather. He and I have been matching wits on Super Bowl winners for some 8 odd years. To put it bluntly, my all time record stinks. In 8 years of picks I am 3-5. I have never gone on a winning 'streak', u
