Being a true blooded Baltimore Boy, they stand for Drunken Owners, Mayflower Vans, Midnight Departures, Idiot NFL Commissioners, and a host of other bad memories. I still have the 1966 autographed football that was given to me while I was in the hospital and it still says Baltimore on it. Yes, it's nice having the Ravens, but I miss our Colts.

Remember, they all do it for the love of the game. SURE< RIGHT..Not a one of them is worth what they are paid.... :wink: :wink:

I live 70 miles from Indy and do I care who wins.. NO NO NO...I will probably watch the first quarter and then find something constructive to do. :wink: :wink:

Let's see if I can do it two years in row. Colts 21 Bears 18

Ross, You do have a point. However the owners gotta take alot of blame for throwing the money at them. You would be suprised at how little these guys woyld play for. But why should they? The owners kiss there ass to get them signed if they are good.

Re: Football

As soon as you remember that it is now all about the MONEY, all the MONEY, and nothing but the MONEY, you will be able to sleep and night and not worry about it anymore.

Pro football is no longer about team and loyalty to fans and city. Most of the players celebrate the least little accomplishment with dancing and thumping of chests, prices are ridiculas, cities are held hostage by teams for bigger, newer multi million dollar stadiums, on and on.

I love football, but I understand that it is nothing like the old glory days when team meant something and loyalty to fans meant something, and not acting like a freaking moron when you score a touchdown and showing some class meant something.

I take it for what it is now..entertainment..sometimes good sometimes bad.

Amen!

Hey, I'm a Bengal's fan, and I would feel lucky if the whole team was able to stay out of jail for a year. :lol:

Point well-taken Gary :wink: All the more reason why I switched to watching women’s synchronized swimming. :shock: I was just never the same after the Colts left.

As a Dallas fan, I have to tell your team "Thank You" for becoming the league criminals and taking the title from my team. :wink:

We are a country of self-indulging whores. Those idiots on the field are just representative of our society in many ways. That's part of the reason a large part of the world's population holds us in such contempt.

Even ignorant peasants in backward third world countries realize that life is about more than just the accumulation of wealth. But, everything is in cycles. And, this too shall pass.

Now, I have to go and burn some fossil fuel in my luxurious Goldwing enjoying the bright sunshine and cool temps. :D

Your statement suggests that a person who makes millions of dollars per year can not be an idiot.............or since I make somewhat less than that means that I am the idiot.

This proves my point that we in this nation equate quality of life or depth of character by how much money one makes or how many things one has accumulated.

In my opinion, a football player who is on a team which is losing 35-7 and runs half way down the field in a celebratory break dance after making a single tackle, then raises his arms to the crowd like he is some hero returning from war....................is an idiot. I don't care how much money he makes.

But, you may set your own standards for integrity...........and wit. :D
