who is my team now?

April 3, 2012

Now that Peyton Manning has signed with the Denver Broncos people ask me all the time if I am still an Indianapolis Colts fan or am I going to be a Broncos fan now?

Basically, am I a true Colts fan or a true Peyton fan?

Throughout last season I maintained that I was a Colts fan first. I also sincerely thought there was no way that Irsay was going to actually cut Peyton Manning.

Peyton Manning does not get cut.

I even teared up during his press conference when he was formally being released from the team.

Well the truth hurts. {Keith is loving this…he is just waiting to say I TOLD YOU SO!}

I am a Peyton Manning fan first and a Colts fan second.

There I said it.


What does this mean?

It means that I will root for the Colts all season long and I will also root for the Broncos.

And when push comes to shove…I would root for Denver to be better than Indy.

I will always be a Peyton Manning fan no matter where he plays.

Here’s to the 2012 season. I hope Peyton takes it all the way!

When it comes to your team do you identify with that certain team or a certain player on that team?

    When it comes to football, I definitely identify with the team – GO PATS! It’s so hard to live in New England and not be absolutley in love with our sports teams πŸ™‚

    I was TOTALLY wondering this when I saw the Peyton press conference. Seriously you were one of my first thoughts because I didn’t know if you would ‘convert’ to Denver, or stick with the Colts. Honestly, if it were me, I would be in the SAME boat as you. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to not root for your favorite player of all time.

    Now that is dedication to an athlete!

    I’m a team fan first and a player fan second. When Pujols left the Cardinals? Well. We had a hard breakup. But it had to happen…

    I’m so disappointed by this! I’m a HUGE Colts fan, and now I don’t know what to do. Petyon was a huge part of why I liked the team. I think I’ll still be a Colts fan, but it’s just not the same. I’m not so crazy about him that I’m going to start rooting for the Broncos, because my first and foremost team with always be the Patriots – and I can’t start rooting for three teams, haha!
