Colts win! Colts win! What a game! I’m happy for Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy. It was the largest comeback in AFC or NFC Championship history. I was proud of Coach Tony
Dungy when he said the game was “won in such a way that the Lord receives all the credit.” I knew Tony was a strong believer and couldn’t be happier for him. I was shocked when the CEO and Owner of the Colts gave “glory to God” for the win. Wow – and the Bears won, too. It’s going to be a great Super Bowl.
