I was delighted to watch Peyton Manning win his first Super Bowl today. I have 2-3 degrees of separation between the two of us (2 is possible, 3 is definite), not to mention the fact that we used the same cake lady for our wedding cakes, so I have been rooting for him since he was nominated for the Heisman Trophy (and lost... BOOOOO!). From all accounts, he is a decent, solid guy.
He has been ragged on a lot b/c he hasn't been able to get to the Super Bowl, but boy, did he do it this time. What a champ. And Phi Beta Kappa to boot.
