I'll be rooting for the Saints in the Super Bowl this weekend (I'm tired of watching the NFC lose), but I won't be too disappointed if the Colts win because I really like Payton Manning. He just seems like a really good guy who knows that he has a good life.
The Colts' owner, Bill Polian, got his panties in a bunch because the Pro Bowl was a week before the Super Bowl and several Colts flew down to be introduced. He called it "stupid" and a "disruption". Obviously Payton was asked about the comments and had this to say;
"I got to fly on a private plane with some of my best friends and teammates.We had Ruth's Chris Steakhouse on the flight. We got a private escort right into Miami, shook a few hands, did one interview and made $45,000. I can think of worse things to put yourself through."
Hard not to like a guy with that kind of attitude. h/t Football Outsiders
