Hyper-bowl.

Before the Superbowl the narrative being written by sports writers and anchors was that Peyton Manning was the greatest quarterback ever. Before the Superbowl New Orleans was a great story and America was rooting for them. Four quarters later and Peyton Manning is highly flawed as he is 500 in the playoffs at 9wins and 9 loses and no one is calling him the greatest ever. Next up was New Orleans. Suddenly, this was the forgotten city, ignored by us and treated shabby. (Of course the hundreds of millions of dollars pumped in New Orleans and LA in general is shabby treatment.) New Orleans is finding redemption from Katrina by winning the Superbowl. And Lord Brees walks on water. My head hurts.

Redemption should only come from a sporting event if you are a player who has f*cked up and you score the winning goal, touchdown, et al. New Orleans is not a forgotten city, but it is a fantastic and flawed city with more problems than a storm the size of katrina could wash away.  As for Peyton Manning – he’s a great quarterback, though I’d take Joe Montanna or Tom Brady in the playoffs over him.
