Cajun Colts

When the Indianapolis Colts suit up Saturday at 4:30 p.m. (Manning vs. McNair) for their divisional playoff against the Baltimore Colts there may very well be some gumbo in visiting locker room. The Colts have 3 stellar Louisiana natives on their offense starting with none other than prototype de jour quarterback Payton "Money" Manning. Sixth-year receiver Reggie Wayne, like Manning, hails New Orleans native, is in his sixth year with the NFL. Also, from Da Boot is slot receiver Brandon Stokely, who hails from Cajun Country, Lafayette. Obviously, I'll have to roll with the homeboys, the Colts, on this one even though my boy Ed Reed, Baltimore's All-Pro safety, is from the Big Easy as well. The backstory here is that these two teams were once one franchise. The owner snuck the Colts out of Baltimore in the middle of the night in the 1980s and now Baltimore wants some getback. I say, what James Bond said: Die Another Day.
