I thought that this would be the dream season for the Indianapolis Colts, particularly after their 13-0 start.
The Steelers, though took a commanding 14-0 lead in their playoff game today and held on for a 21-18 victory.
I am sure that the Colts wanted to win this game for coach Tony Dungy, whose family faced the tagedy of the suicide of son James Dungy last month. They were my sentimental favorites to win it all, but clearly the Colts could not decipher the Steeler Blitkrieg until it was too late.
Now I can cheer for Jerome Bettis - like me, a Detroiter by birth - and his quest to get a Super Bowl ring in what will likley be his last season in a Hall of Fame career.
