The 2016 NFL season marks the 10-year anniversary of the Indianapolis Colts-Chicago Bears Super Bowl. You remember, that one when Devin Hester returned the opening kickoff off only for Rex Grossman to yuck it up the rest of the game.
That’s not even the point.
The point is Peyton Manning wants the Colts to have a 10-year reunion for it; which I’m not surprised about because this is the same guy who peddles cardboard and tomato sauce misidentified as pizza and an organization that hangs banners for coming in second place of a semifinal.
However, what I can’t get my mind around is that it’s been like a whole week and a half since Peyton Manning officially retired and he’s already talking about the next time he can get in front of the fans’ eyes again.
I have never seen someone so ostentatious and hungry to be on the forefront of other people’s minds. I don’t understand how this guy isn’t on vacation with his New Hampshire prep school named children enjoying retirement.
Here’s the quote from ESPN about the idea:
“I think the Colts are playing the Bears this year,” the quarterback said. “I think it would be appropriate to have that reunion. I don’t think the Bears would like it so much, but that really doesn’t matter that much to me. I think that would be a good time to have it. I hope we do. I hope we do something because everybody is so spread out now.”
I hope to God the Bears kick the Colts’ ass in Indy next year — date TBD.
And I hope more than anything the Colts host a 10-year anniversary party before a Patriots game to celebrate their AFC Championship loss.
