Horse Tracks 1/25/10 - Colts, Saints advance to Super Bowl XLIV


Good Morning, MHR Friends! Not that I expect any of you are rooting for the Colts anyway, but you've gotta feel good for the City of New Orleans, huh? Just a couple quick thoughts...
1. How many times did you see 250+ lb. guys trying to pick up a fumble and run with the ball instead of diving on it?
2. How terrible was that pass-interference call in OT against the Vikings? Brutal...
3. How in the world did they not call a 15-yard penalty on that play where Sanchez got mauled after a handoff?
4. I know you've all been waiting for it...Brett Favre Will He/Won't He Season began last night!!! Woohoo!!! (Gag me)

CNNM - If you believe the Super Bowl indicator, root for the Colts - Chris Isidore
Apparently, the only thing better than an NFL-based team winning the SB is a Broncos victory in the big game...
