Adversity for Manning, Brady creates intrigue for fans

Every so often, we get bored with sports. Great players continue to be great. Stupid players continue to be stupid. And, yes, Brett Favre retires and unretires (Sorry, got distracted).

Looking at the Colts, they’ve lost Tony Dungy to retirement, Ron Meeks to a clash of egos, Tom Moore and Howard Mudd to Pensionitis.

Things are in such disarray that the media-savvy Peyton Manning is letting the football world know he’s not happy with the latest turn of events. As for Tom Terrific (that’s Tom Brady for those of you who live on Mars), he is returning from season-ending knee surgery. As a guy who has had several lesser knee procedures, I can tell you that Brady has questions and concerns about his knee.

Whether or not we will admit it, sport at its essence can be reduced to mice running in a maze. Sometimes we tire of seeing the mice doing the same thing day in and day out and we like to change their obstacle course. Whether or not you agree with the metaphor, this season holds intrigue because we get to see how the multimillionaire mice react to the changes in their environment.
