1. the colts didn't
do what the DNC always have...

Simply put, Manning et al never quit. Hell of a game!

14. I have to agree this season has been amazing
It's been great game after great game. Take my redskins for example, all their games have been decided by 3 points or less.

wow.

9. I went to bed when it was 35-14 in the 4th quarter!
How shocked do you think *I* was in the morning?

I hate the Bucs (mainly because of Me-Shawn Johnson and Warren Sapp), so it was a happy morning!

15. Exact same thing happened to me
I was hoping for a comeback and then I saw the interception go for a touchdown. Even the announcers were like "that seals the deal right there."

I wake up and the newsman tells me I'm a sucker for not watching the end. :(

16. If we are lucky ESPN will make it an "Instant classic"
It sounds like it would fit the bill.

17. I watched to the interception return that made it 35-14
Puttered around a bit, then went to bed. Figured I'd click over to ABC to see how the game ended and saw that it was 35-35 with the fourth quarter expiring and Tampa Bay desperately trying to get into field goal range. Holy smoke!

Even though the Bucs won the coin toss, I could see they were just going through the motions. They got one first down, then stalled. When Manning led the offense out onto the field, they looked ready to take it right down the field. Tampa Bay's defense wasn't quite done, and forced a couple of third-and-long situations, but Manning was throwing darts. Once the Colts passed midfield, it seemed to be all over.

Whoof! Hard to play football with your hands on your throat.

18. Freakish in nature, that comeback was.
It's one of those types of comebacks that you always hope for when you were 12 years old, and your team is down by 21 points...

Couldn't have been scripted by Hollywood any better than that.

I missed the 3rd Q - switched over to the Bravo channel to watch The West Wing. Channel surfed a little, then came back with about 5 or 6 minutes to go. Saw the whole last drama unfold.

Freakish, I tell ya.
