Superbowl Sunday is here. Football fans have been waiting all year for this day. Colts fans have been waiting since the 2006 season to get back here. Saints fans have been waiting their whole life.

As for myself, I grew up in Baltimore as a fan of the Colts. in 1983, unannounced, they moved to Indianapolis in the middle of the night. Earlier that year I had left Baltimore when I joined the USAF and moved about an hour east of New Orleans. Over the next decade I became a fan of the Saints. I'll be pulling for the Saints today but I think they will come up short...Colts 31 Saints 28.
