|"I got this homeboy! Just made you sweat for entertainment purposes!"|
An old Italian cat on the south side of Chicago once asked me if I believed in luck. I responded, “Well…I guess I do!” He smiled and said, “Listen youngster, luck is the intersection where opportunity and preparation meet.” I’ve later learned that you have to continuously drive down the street of preparation while diligently searching for opportunity because it only comes around every now and then if at all. So when you come across it you have to be ready for it.
Well you don’t have to ask the folks in Indianapolis if they believe in Luck because whether they did or not it’s been forced down their throats. Its 6’ 4” 234lbs with a rocket launcher tied to its shoulder walking around town daring boyz not to believe. On Sunday in Kansas City he broke Cam Newton’s single season rookie passing record of 4051 yards while pulling another blue and white rabbit out of his hat in the process. This dun led the Colts to its 7th fourth quarter comeback of the season with a 20-13 win over the Chiefs to clinch a playoff spot.
Most of these duns in Indy were kicking and screaming back in March when the organization decided to let Peyton Manning go even though it made no sense to keep him. The Colts were the worse team in the league last year at 2-14 without Manning, had the 1st pick in April’s NFL Draft and had no choice but to use it. Luck was on deck and they didn’t need 2 quarterbacks that would cost them more than $56 million to keep. So Old Man Winter had to go.
It wasn’t personal! It was business homeboy and Luck came in and took care of his! Most cats, including me, gave the Colts a slim chance of winning 4 games with the rookie but understood that his upside was crazy! What upside playa? This cat came in after driving down the road of preparation and just parallel parked the joint into opportunity blind folded, winning 10 games with the season finale coming up on Sunday at home against Houston!
Now a few weeks ago I had this one circled as a guaranteed “W.” Because I figured, like most folks, that the Texans would have already clinched home field so they would be resting boyz by now but they’ve been dull lately. They got blasted on Monday Night Football by Tom Brady & Co. 42-10 and on Sunday got the brakes beat off of them by the Minnesota Petersons 23-6 at the crib. So now they’ll come to Indy with something to play for…home field advantage.
For all of the clowns that were wearing Peyton Manning Denver Broncos jerseys to Colts games this year. You should be arrested on sight and charged with being a natural born hater and a fake Colts fan. Let me explain something to you homeboy! Either you are a fan of the team or you aren’t! You can’t be a Colts fan only if your favorite player is on the freaking team. That only makes you a fan of the player not the team so don’t start false flagging as a Colts fan now that they’re in the playoffs! Also tell the league office to go ahead and ship that Rookie of the Year joint on down to Indy and quit playing! #LUCKSTRONG
Holler At Yaw Boy!
