Peyton Manning Joins the Denver Broncos… and Why This Guy is Glad He Did!

The Peyton Manning Sweepstakes is over! Peyton has chosen to sign with the Denver Broncos, a team with a horse mascot like the Indianapolis Colts, for whom he had played for 14 seasons. Maybe he has a thing for horsey teams. Regardless, that means I’m going to be switching favourite teams because I was only in for the Colts to follow Peyton from the University of Tennessee, where he played college football. But now that Peyton has left, I go with him.

A lot of reasons were mentioned why Peyton chose the Broncos, see story link above, but here’s why I am glad he chose them. Some of these reasons I don’t doubt he considered, though maybe as a minor factor. Others are just for me that made me happy:

Is Eli Manning Better than Peyton Given Eli’s Second Super Bowl? Poll.

Back in August, 2011, Eli Manning caused a stir when asked if he considered himself in the Top 5 quarterbacks in the NFL. That would mean being in same class as premier quarterbacks such as Tom Brady and Eli’s big brother, Peyton. Eli confidently answered “yes”, even if he didn’t have the statistics, records, record, and Super Bowls as Tom and some others did, though Eli did have one… and it was over Brady.

Isn’t Karma Great with the Patriots and the Mannings?

Eli Manning and the New York Giants have won Super Bowl XLVI, demonstrating some serious karma!

For years, Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts were great… but the New England Patriots had his number.

However, as Eli Manning entered the NFL with the New York Giants, it seems that the Giants have had New England’s number.

Is Fate’s Sense of Irony Cruel to Have a Super Bowl in Indianapolis with the WRONG Manning Playing?

One of the curses of the Super Bowl, it seems, is that the home team where it is held has never gotten to play in it. Any year where the host city has a decent team, though, hope always mounts. Before the 2011-2012 season, speculation this trend may change was especially strong with the Indianapolis Colts being a perennial contender. However, Fate put a quick end to that. Their magician quarterback, Peyton Manning, was sidelined for the first time in his career with a neck injury that was going to keep him out for the season, or enough of it to keep the Colts from even getting to the playoffs to have a chance to play a Super Bowl in front of their fans.

Unfortunately, Fate was in a foul mood towards Indy for some reason and did not stop there. Continue reading

Least Likely To Facebook Tagging Meme

After creating my version of the next generation of pictorial Facebook tagging meme in the Most Likely to version,the logical progression was a Least Likely To version below so this is original at the time of posting as far as I know it. While one can use thisĀ  poster in a pessimistic way towards tagging people for the future, to identify friends who would be least likely to do something, I meant it as a reflective exercise with the instructions being to tag friends who were least like to do something.

This is an exercise to acknowledge how people change in big ways we don’t expect, but that we should afford them the chance to in life, rather than blocking them in by removing their potential. I’m generally a positive kind of guy, though with a bit of a wicked sense of humour, at times, as you can see by some of my choices in the poster below. As a result, despite using the same poster as the Most Likely to version, I changed the picture text to be more general in some circumstances. We may dream or lift others to the post of president, for example, but in reality, just being a leader applies to far more of us than president, no matter what kind of president you want to consider.
