A.net Betting - Colts Vs. Patriots

Sat Jan 15, 2005 8:10 am

The Colts are playing the Patriots (apparently?) on Sunday, so here's the bet. If the Colts win, you can have whatever you want in my signature, as long as it abides by the forum rules, for one week. If the Patriots win, I can have whatever I want in your signature as long as it abides by the rules, for one week.

The first person to come up with the most convincing argument as to why I should have the bet with them gets the honour.

777236ER: Being a Pats fan, I get nothing out of this, so you'll have to find some poor Colts fan who thinks Peyton's gonna be comfortable in the 20-degree (F) weather and his stupid drawl shoved face-first in a frozen field.

I can't wait.

Hmm, maybe I picked the wrong team. Where are they from?

Bristol City...

No, actually the Colts are from Indianapolis, Indiana, and the Patriots are from Massachusetts, formerly the Boston Patriots (remember that war we won?  Wink/being sarcastic) and now make their home in Foxborough, MA about 15-20 miles south of Boston.

Some pro and con arguments on each team:

Colts:

Pro. Peyton Manning is the best QB in the league handsdown. Breaking Dan Marinos single season TD record is nothing to sneeze at.

Con. The Colts are a dome team (a team who plays their home games in a domed stadium), and teams that play in domes or are from warmer cities tend to not play so well when the weather gets really chilly.

Patriots:

Pro. Defending Super Bowl Champs. Strung together quite a winning streak spanning the better part of two seasons.

Con. They're the defending Super Bowl Champs. That's an albatross around their neck. There have only been 7 teams that have managed back to back Super Bowl Championships, Denver being the last, so the odds are really against them repeating. They've had some injuries that have affected them and at times the team seems lost.

Both AFC games are a toss up to me, but I willing to say that the Colts will be able to hammer out a victory @ Foxboro.

Good stuff, but I don't really care either way.  Sad

I thought it'd be at least something I'd be impartial with. What about who gets the highest number of posts in Non Aviation this week?
