The NFL deadline for teams to sign free agents has passed and I remain an unsigned free agent. Therefore, I will not be playing in SuperBowl 50. Nevertheless, I will be watching intently, wearing my Peyton Manning #18 jersey, which I was wearing while I watched the Broncos defeat the New England Patriots for the AFC Championship. I am glad to help in that way.
The NFC champs, the Carolina Panthers, are favored by the Las Vegas oddsmakers. Peyton and I do not worry about that. We will just do what we have to do to win.
Despite being unsigned by the Broncos, I do not hold a grudge. There is always next year to make the roster. In the meantime, I have explained to my supportive wife that it is important for me to keep my weight up. I am married to the right woman for that. This weekend Sugar made a wonderful Italian dinner for thirty people. As usual, she overdid it. We have leftovers. I love her lasagna. Therefore, I ate lasagna for breakfast the next day. Breakfast of Champions! And for dinner? The dinner of champions — ziti and bread and a canoli for dessert. Don’t worry Coach Kubiak, I am the perfect weight for an NFL linebacker. Give me a call sometime after the SuperBowl victory. I will be ready for next season.
