Super Bowl XLI: Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears [J. Mark English]

It should be a dream match-up in many ways. Great defense meets, great offense. The Colts played a gutsy game, beating a team that refuses to die. Peyton Manning finally gets to know what its like to be in the big game. The first Manning to do so. He gives the city of New Orleans something to be happy about after such a bitter defeat earlier today.

And for the first time there will not just one, but two African American coaches, coaching two superb teams in the Super Bowl. Tony Dungy, and Lovie Smith are trailblazers for sure.

The Colts win the Lamar Hunt Trophy, the trophy who's name sake died over a month ago.

The Bears win the George Halas, on the same field where Halas built the Bears and also the NFL.

These are two franchises that are rich in tradition, and have been around for decades. Should be a classic Super Bowl. Too bad we have to wait two whole weeks for the game. Let the build up begin!
