Hey look, there’s our buddy Peyton in La Jolla. I don’t know why so many people outside of Indy hate on Peyton Manning. I love him. Good person, good quarterback, hysterical commercials (mostly) and SNL appearances. Eli, on the other hand, can suck it. Back to Peyton, as a Chargers fan, of course I don’t want the AFC powerhouse Colts to ever beat us, but I never wish harm upon them. I don’t mind when they win, they’re a likable team. I wish I could say the same for the Patriots. I cannot. Either way… it’s clear now that Peyton Manning is definitely out for week 1 of the 2011 NFL season… and now we’re learning… he’ll be out “awhile”.
Here is the latest from Colts owner Jim Irsay, via Twitter: “NFL Season opens 2nite!We had a good practice yesterday and r guys r fired up 4 the season.#18′s out for awhile,but compete,we will/BELIEVE” There you have it: awhile. Whatever that means.
All these conflicting reports about how he did or didn’t have a second neck surgery and he’s gonna out for the season and blah blah blah… shut up with the speculation and just let things play out. On a personal note… yes, I’m one of the millions of idiots that drafted Peyton Manning as their starting quarterback in fantasy football, but as Arian Foster reminded us, life’s about more than just the multi-billion dollar industry that is fantasy football. And guess what, lobsters, I was smart enough to draft his backup Curtis Painter too, just in case Peyton couldn’t play… who’s got the last laugh now, bitches!?
(if you believe i really drafted curtis painter, i want you to leave this site and never come back. cheers)
