Shootin' the Breeze

and random targets


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!
