With our beloved Colts sitting alone atop the entire NFL at a dazzling 5 and 0, let us savour some of the moments from our most recent triumph, and take a gander at the wacky goings-on around the rest of the NFL.
expected, the Colts went into Monster Park and, packing silver bullets, wooden
stakes and garlic, had little trouble disposing of the Niners, even if the
offense was a tad sloppy.
doubt, Alex Smith will suffer from post-traumatic stress, perhaps awakening in
the middle of the night in the next few weeks, jammies soaked with perspiration,
and wail aloud to his parents that, "Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis are in
there was a monster in Candlestick, and it was the Colts defense
a team whose logo is a lucky charm, how appropriate that Cato June's hands
proved to be so magically delicious!! The man looked like a stocky wideout as he
jumped those routes and snagged the pigskin with great derring-do! The Chappelle
Show Dance, like the show itself, was a personal favourite my friends!!!!
Just be thankful that Cato didn't re-enact the Chappelle, "R. Kelly
home video" spoof. There would have been a variety of charges.
The magnificent coiffe

nonsensical was the speed of the spin-move displayed by Robert
A question for my CP brethren:
If our cyber-overlord, Edward Thompson, could pull off a spin move at a similar speed….would his hair move?
note to marketing/advertising geeks in the Indiana area: WHY hasn't somebody
yet done an ad with Freeney and Mathis in a Tasmanian Devil cartoon bit? It must
Was everybody else impressed at the play of Big D, Dallas Clark, in all facets of the game? Was anybody else petrified when he took a solid SMACK to the skull, and appeared a little "goofy" on his way back to the huddle?!
hope that 49er defensive back was appreciative of the free piggy-back ride
Edgerrin was kind enough to provide. Was that some sort of Colts promo that I
wasn't aware of? I could almost hear the man's squeals of delight as
Edgerrin galloped for beaucoup yards after the catch!
NOTE – the fumble came out of the cursed, "no yardage set". Later, the
Colts went to 3-wide down low, and Edgerrin punched that one in with no problem.
as well – hopefully the record-breaking Manning to Harrison touchdown toss is
done in front of the hometown fans this coming Monday. Here's hoping a Colt
ends up on Madden's horse trailer. Marvin, perhaps?
meanwhile, around the rest of the NFL, a number of situations provided quality
entertainment for all fans. First…..
What an impressive return to the gridiron by "The Throwin' Genoan", Vincenzo Testaverde, in leading the Jets past Greasy John Gruden and his Dungy-Spawn.
The only quality hit doled out in the game by TBay? Ronde Barber's impressive, karatay-style hammerfist to the schnozz of a referee! The blow sparked a maelstrom of commentary in the media; I personally saw only one thing wrong with it -- Larry Nemmers wasn't the recipient.
Bucs are still playing much better this season, in no small part due to the free
agent acquisition of DT Chris Hovan. I remember pining for him this offseason; a
talented tackle who everyone described as a perfect fit for the Colts' system.
The later acquisition of The Simonizer, of course, more than made up for missing
out on Hovan. He may fit the system, but Cory Simon fills it. Literally.
Ravens continued their disappointing season with a loss to the Browns, who are
showing everybody that they are a quality team.
I think Indianapolis' win over Baltimore in the opener really hurt the team,
both physically (Kyle Boller) and mentally. It'll be interesting to see how
long Ray Lewis can maintain any zip in his "Dance Of The Idiot Gardener
Savant" if the losses keep piling up. Ducking and diving, dekeing and dodging,
plucking sprigs of grass and examining them in midair…..I think people are
going to realize that, "…boy, that looks ridiculous!", if the team
continues to stink.
Bill Romanowski admitted to using steroids. Later, Bob Lamey confessed to eating fried foods.
anyone else think Lamey is the best radio broadcaster out there?
WHAT WOULD KIRK DOUGLAS THINK?
LOVE, exciting and new….come aboard, Minny's expecting you……
Ahh, yes, the Vikings Love Boat and the alleged sex scandal.
people everywhere! Crew and staff petrified!! Fred Smoot's good (???) name
Coach Mike Tice, aka "Captain Stubing", stated that he'd be running a
tighter ship from now on, more along the lines of Captain Bligh. Or Tom
ponder the allegations:
group of men…on boats…on the open sea…engaged in frightful acts of
this what Vikings are SUPPOSED to do?!
good folks dwelling around Lake Minnetonka should be thankful that their
lodgings weren't pillaged and burned to the ground!!
Run for your lives, it's Daunte The Red and Smoot Erickson!!!!!!
Mike Tice manages to right this ship and keep his job, I'll be amazed. At
least, if he does get canned, he'll have his lucrative, ticket-scalping
business to fall back on.
