No Super dilemma for elder Manning
Blood is thicker than water -- even the muddy water of the Mississippi River.
That's just the way it is. ... Anybody who thinks it's different must not have children.” -- Archie Manning
So despite his allegiance to New Orleans, there's no question about which team the elder Manning will be pulling for in Super Bowl XLIV. He erased any doubt about that after the Colts beat the New York Jets in the AFC Championship Game, according to The Indianapolis Star.
"It's a game I'm going to pull for my son," the elder Manning said, according to the report.
"[Saints coach] Sean Payton knows that. He's a great friend of mine," Manning said. "[Saints quarterback] Drew Brees knows that. That's just the way it is.
"Anybody who thinks it's different must not have children."
