Hometown kid makes good

Well aren't the Saints' fans are a swell bunch?

When the Indianapolis Colts nailed a field goal with 15 seconds left to seal a win in their divisional playoff game against the Ravens, a cheer swelled up through the Superdome crowd watching on a Jumbotron screen.

The biggest cheers were reserved for camera shots of Indy quarterback Peyton Manning, a New Orleans native who apparently moved on to big things.

By the way, I picked Indy to win that one. I know it's not recorded anywhere; nevertheless, it's true. As I just told esteemed my esteemed colleague and road trip partner for the day, Roy, neither the Chiefs nor the Ravens really had enough offense to expose the Colts' porous defense.

Next week, though, may be a different story for Peyton and Co.
