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 actually taped the parade and celebration last night.
Well, actually I left home around 6 and taped Heroes (which I still haven't watched) and saw the party.
A couple of notes - I thought it was fantastic that the players rode through town on floats. I think if it had been publicized that way ahead of time the numbers on the streets would have been much higher but it was great that they did that.
The ovation for Dungy surprised me - and made me feel great. I knew Colts fans (for the most part) appreciated him. I didn't know they loved him as much as Peyton. I think that surprised him a little too.
Would've liked to have seen the players do something spontaneous at the end - run around the field waving to the crowd or whatever. But it was fine the way it went. Nice to see a full dome.

I took some pics of the rally with my camera phone but it may take a few days for me to get them online.

"The Houston Texans will forever regret it if they do not take Johnny Manziel with the No. 1 overall pick. He will haunt them."
"You bet I'd take Tebow late in games over ARodg."
