    I'm not sure I could shrink that down to DVD size without just killing quality.

    Who said I was back on? The Colts will obviously lose to the Bears.












    Still, they haven't won a championship yet. One more to go.

    SAME OLD *******ING COLTS.....

    I guess the Patriots know who their *****es are...

    ...I stand corrected, and take responsibility for losing it a little bit....

    After the beatdown we were taking, and then going three and out with two straight sacks, it was easy to assume the world was ending....

    Reading back through the few pages surrounding my post, I can see I wasn't alone....

    Man, there was a lot of trash talking when we were down by 21-3, even when we were tied, there were still doubters. Some of you guys are not true Colts fans. I hope the crow tastes pretty decent.

    It goes back to the FG that hit the cross bar and went over in the Ravens game...that's when we became a team of destiny. It continued when the Pats dropped two perfectly thrown passes....can't be anything other than destiny. The stars are aligned.

    Even when we were down 21-3, I knew we would win....even stated so in a couple of posts. Just had that special feeling about this team.

    Anyway I just felt the bandwagon go down a couple of inches when everyone jumped on after the game.

    OK, for the last ****in' time: The definition of a "true fan" is NOT having blind faith in everything involving your team! If you care about the team, and you want them to win, you are a fan. PERIOD. That does NOT mean you have pretend at all times they WILL WIN. Nor does it mean that you have to think every player/coach is "JUST GREAT!". This "debate" has popped up on PD over the years and it's ridiculous every time.

    I'm not trying to single you out, but it really irritates me when people make this claim.

    So, let me get this straight. Because we get frustrated over our team seemingly choking for the 164986461894654th time after we've invested so much in them emotionally, it makes us not true fans? Because we don't blindly pick them to win every game, we're not true fans? That's ridiculous. If I wasn't a true fan, you wouldn't have heard squat from me the entire season until this game. If I wasn't a true fan, I wouldn't have wasted my time getting emotional over a team I didn't give a damn about. I'm just as much a fan as anyone, and I'm insulted by the insinuation that someone who doesn't even know me saying I'm not. In fact, if you don't get emotional during a question, I question if you are, in fact, a true fan.

    With that said, I'm ecstatic that I finally get to see my team in the Super Bowl, but I won't believe 100% until we win the whole damn thing. I'm still convinced that the Colts and Pacers won't win a title in my lifetime, and the fact that we seem to be heavy favorites early worries me even more.

    If the Colts actually win this thing, I think that will single-handedly restore my optimism. I just get tired of suffering crushing defeat after crushing defeat season after season. It stings. A lot. And it's even worse when you're "supposed" to win every year and you still manage to find a way to blow it. But at least, this time, there's hope. I never truly believed that the Pacers had a chance to beat the Lakers, but I was happy just to finally be there after so many years of being so close. The Colts, however...they have a very real chance of winning this. So, my expectations are actually back up for the first time in a long time. I just hope I'm not leving myself open to get stung again.

    I will happily eat crow if they pull this off. I would rather keep my expectations low and be pleasantly surprised than expect a win and suffer through another agonizing loss.

    No Shade you're not just a fan you're a true fanatic. Hard to describe in words what this means to all of us. I know PCF has too be having a heart attack about now.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    I didn't mention any names Even when they were down 21-3, I tried to make posts on the positive side to keep the fans from losing faith.

    If they would have lost, it would have litterly ruined my entire week, at least.

    I just had the feeling that the Colts would come out a different ball team after the half, especially with the last drive before the first half and with the idea of us having the ball at the ko.

    I know how frustrated you were in the first half, so was I, but I really had faith in the team. This was not Mannings game to win or lose, it was a TEAM effort. We had just enough to get the job done.

    Thanks Shade. It was the least we could do.

    This thread made for an interesting read.


    I will NEVER, repeat: NEVER, attend a sporting event better than this game right here. Ever. This was the stuff of grand childhood memories. I can still feel it, everybody was completely incredulous. The biggest most collective Did We Really Just Do That? moment you can think of. I'll never forget what the place looked like after than final INT, white flags waving above everyone's heads (including a few of the unofficial blue Patriots SUCK! towels), everyone jumping like madmen, U2 playing through the loud speakers: I know I'm not a hopeless case ... First damn time I've ever enjoyed U2. It just rang so true for this team.

    That game was second all time for me.

    The first took place in a small town in upstate NY called Lake Placid. The year was 1980. It was my junior year of high school and my father pulled me out of school for 3 weeks to go the Olympics.

    We attended every single hockey game of the tournament. Nothing, and I repeat, NOTHING has ever came close to the feeling when we beat the Russians. Two days later when we won the gold was big, but it still did not match the electricity and complete feeling of euphoria of beating the Russians. That was hands down the single most amazing sporting event I ever attended.

    We had no idea at the time but it would be the last real thing my father and I ever did together. Less than two months later he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He died that September. He talked with such joy about that tournament, that game, that trip together to his dying day.

    Grand childhood memories indeed!!

    Sorry about your dad as well.

    Sorry about your Dad, first off.

    That is an amazing moment though. I'm sure whatever supernatural being that reigns above us knew what was happening with your Dad, but at least wanted to give you guys one amazing moment in exchange for his early depature.

    I love this thread I've read it from beginning to end at least 10 times and it's funny I know what the outcome is going to be but I still find myself getting nervous as I recall the moments mentioned in the thread "can we turn it around at halftime?" "can our defense get a stop?" "can special teams just get ONE MORE stop?" "can we keep the patriots from scoring ONE more time with only a minute or so remaining?"

    Man I still get shivers and kind of teary-eyed reading this thread. I always wondered if just ONE of my favorite sports teams would ever win a championship before I died, granted I'm only 22 so god willing I would have had many chances for that special moment but I am definately blessed to have seen it happen at least ONCE in my lifetime and in this fashion...nothing comes close for me up to this point in my life of just the rollercoaster of emotions and heart pounding moments the couple of hours this game lasted. If the Colts ever win another championship it'll just be bonus happy times but it will take a hell of a lot to beat the feeling I had after that night.
