Peyton Manning, #18, is not my team-mate, yet, but, since I am an undrafted free agent, I hope that soon we will both be on the roster for the Broncos. I happen to possess an official NFL licensed Peyton Manning jersey, which I will be wearing on Sunday, when the Patriots come to Denver for the AFC championship game to decide which team goes to the Superbowl. Of course, after I am signed, the Broncos will have to get me a jersey of my own, with a different number, but, for now, we both wear #18.
Peyton and I have not spent a lot of time hanging out together, yet, but I look forward to doing so. He drives a Buick and my father had a Buick, so we have that in common. Also, he has won some awards for his athletic accomplishments, and, as you readers are no doubt very aware, I have a few trophies of my own. Remember who was captain of the 7th grade flag football championship team a few years back? I thought you would!
So, like I was saying, Peyton is my kind of guy. I sincerely root for him and the other Broncos to beat the Patriots and then to win the Superbowl. I don’t mind if I don’t get one of the championship rings this year because I will probably get one next year.
Now I have time to get that double knee replacement during the off season and to get my weight up. After that, Peyton and I will have some fun during the 2014 season. Go Broncos!
