Did anyone else at the game see the ref do a backwards somersault in the first quarter? It was hilarious. I assume that it wasn't on tv since I can't find anything about it.

God asks Peyton Manning first: "What do you believe?"
Peyton thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and
says, "I believe in hard work, and in staying true to
family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky,
but I always tried to do right by my fans." God can't
help but see the essential goodness of Manning, and
offers him a seat to his left.


Then God turns to Tony Romo and says, "What do you
believe?" Tony says, "I believe passion, discipline,
courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. I,
too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I've always
tried to be a true sportsman, both on and off the
playing fields." God is greatly moved by Tony's
sincere eloquence, and he offers him a seat to his
right.

Finally, God turns to Tom Brady: "And you, Tom,
what do you believe?" Tom replies, "I believe
you're in my seat."

We already heard that joke, right?

colts girl said...

Yeah, we already heard it. Too bad F-Pats fans think it's the truth...

JC said...

I'm sure it's been out there before.

But seeing as we're 15-0, I figured I'd post it.

Remember, the New England Patriots go for a perfect season on NFL Network next Saturday.

Regarding thaqt joke, I think it's pretty damn funny. Why? It was new to me. I didn't guess it. It shows that Pats fans actually believe this shit. And finally, it shows the essential smug hubris of Brady and Pats fans.

Note that God didn't apologize or move within the context of the joke. And anyone remotely familiar with the old testament care to guess what happens next? (A) Brady covered with boils (B) Giselle Bundchen grows a phallus or (C) Both.

That being said, jc, I wish your team the best next week. 16-0 and then 17-0 will be fine, physically and mentally draining accomplishments. And when your pro-bowlers are home packing their floral shirts for Hawaii along with their coach, I hope they tune in to the SB to watch the Colts repeat.

The champagne the Colts spew on their heads will be compliments of the nearest Shula's Steak House.

Doesn't she already have one? I mean...I just assumed...

It would be funny if the Patriots lost in the playoffs after going 16-0. It would be funny and probably the biggest NFL story of all time.

Would that make New England the biggest asterick in history. Every time somebody starts a season with a string of wins, the debate on New England would start again.

Tom Brady, after living a full life (just ask the goats...), died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Patriots flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity, Tom," said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here." Tom felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a blue 3-story mansion with a blue & white sidewalk, a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous COLTS logo flag, and in every window, a gleaming white horseshoe. John looked at God and said "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I set a passing record, I won 3 Super Bowls, and I even went to the Hall of Fame." God said "So what's your point Tom?" "Well, why does Peyton Manning get a better house than me?" God chuckled, and said "Tom, that's not Peyton's house, it's mine."


(My stupid boyfriend tried to tell me last night that a Colts Super Bowl would be "less meaningful" if someone else dispatched the F-Pats in the semi-finals. I don't believe it--can't envision anyone but an F-Pats fan thinking a Super Bowl is no big deal because they "only" beat the Steelers or Chargers to get in.)

heatherradish, Love that joke. If you click on my name you get to one of my blogs--it's a messed up "part 2" of a blog that chronicles the construction of my house last year. If you cut out the "part 2" portion of the URL you'd see that it's big and blue with white trim.

No flagpole and not quite Colts/royal blue--that's too bright for me and my wife would have killed me. But on a sunny day it doesn't quite look navy blue and a big white horseshoe on the garage doors would look right at home.

Bob,

Had to check out the house--all I can say is, "wow." Really amazing stuff, and I love the color, even if your neighbors don't. As my mom always said, "if they don't like it, poop on their shoes."

Did you do the tile work yourself? It's tremendous. I'll comment on your site directly, but holy catfish--it's great!

Bob M. said...

Coltsgirl, very funny, poop on their shoes.

No, my wife led the charge to import tiles outselves from a guy in south France who chisels them out of crumbling country houses. (Gotta love eBay) After fighting with US Customs, the transport companies, etc. and then scrubbing mildew off every tile with bleach and a stiff brush during the NLF playoffs in an unheated house shell last winter, we wanted to make sure they were laid right. And the tile guy did a good job considering there were size variations, thickness variations, some cracks, etc.

So, back to the color, I'm thinking it would be a simple matter to make a couple big horseshoes out of plain white paper and tape them up on the garage doors. The Seahawks fans in my area might not get it and winter weather in Seattle makes the color look dark, but it'd be a fun look. If we make the SB I am definitely doing it. If the Seahawks do as well, so much the better!
