I wonder if those who witness historic events realize the importance of those events in the moment? In some cases, I’m sure that they do. On the other hand, I imagine that history often unfolds right before our clueless eyes. Heads-up football fans lest we risk the latter.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are flirting with a truly epic season. We are just one-fourth of the way through the 2013 season and Manning has already achieved a number of records. After four games Manning has broken Brett Favre’s record of 23 NFL games with at least four touchdown passes – Manning now has 24. He also broke Kurt Warners record of 14 touchdown passes through 4 games – Manning has 16. Add to that, Manning has tied Milt Plum’s (Browns) 1960 record of 16 touchdown passes with no interceptions thrown. And all while leading his team to a perfect 4-0 record atop the AFC West Division. At this rate, Peyton Manning may even replace Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Breaking Bad in the battle of trending Google searches for 2013!
Seriously, Peyton Manning is unstoppable right now. And to think, the Indianapolis Colts thought he was through! Well, Peyton Manning is not through and he is showing the world that he can do a lot more than sell pizzas. If you like football it’s time to wake up because history is happening in Mile High Stadium and history is wearing #18.
