It's about time. When my 'boys couldn't go to the Super Bowl, I just hoped that the patriots would be put out. When San Diego BLEW the game (interception, 4th down and run back which is fumbled) then it was up to Peyton and the Colts.

Everyone that follows sports knows the story. Peyton can't win the big game, will never go to the Super Bowl, etc. Brady, 12-1 in the playoffs, Mr. Comeback, Mr. Untouchable, etc.

It was a great game. Even watching it split-screen while my daughter watched Spongebob Squarepants (no joke). Early it's 21-3 pats after Peyton throws a pick-6, most think game over. But not this time. Patiently the colts offense found a rhythm and the defense did just enough to slow the Brady-machine. Congrats to Peyton and the Indianapolis Colts.

Manning finally wins big one, leads Colts to Super Bowl

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A comeback, a drive, a legacy. And yes -- finally -- Peyton Manning gets his Super Bowl trip, too.

Football's most prolific quarterback put on a show for the ages Sunday, rallying the Indianapolis Colts from 18 points down and driving them 80 yards for the winning score in a wildly entertaining 38-34 victory over the New England Patriots.

In his nine years in the league, Manning has never played in a game like this AFC championship contest. He threw for 349 yards and one touchdown and brought his team back from a 21-3 deficit. (link)

I knew for a fact that Indy would win this game after I read this post recently at TownHall: (link) Thanks for the help Dean :)
Reason to celebrate
