INDIANAPOLIS - Eight hours after the NFL game of the month ended the jubilant fans of Indianapolis were still celebrating by chanting Luck! Luck! Luck! in reference to Andrew Luck, the quarterback who replaced their former messiah Peyton Manning.
Indianapolis knocked Denver from the ranks of the NFL's unbeaten teams as the Rocky Mountain boys are now at 6-1.
In what The Turnstile Review called an effenly hard fought game Peyton Manning's former team the Colts beat his current team the Broncos 39-33 before what one long time Colts fan described as somewhere around 700,000 fans.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The long time Colts fan kind of overestimated a bit as the number was actually around 67,000.]
Before the game, Manning received a tremendous standing ovation from the Colts fans who cheered him for the 14 years he wore the colors of the Colts team.
Peyton was presented with the key to the city by the mayor. The player who wore number 18 for the Colts was also given a 2014 blue and white Lamborghini Murcielago, a $3,000 gift certificate to Krogers, and front row tickets to a December concert in Denver featuring the hip hop band The Fa Shizzle Ma Nizzle Chumpz.
SIDENOTE: Just before the opening kickoff a teary-eyed Peyton Manning took the microphone and thanked all of the wonderful Colts fans in English and then in Spanish.
