We've got one conference championship game in the books, folks, and the Indianapolis Colts are headed to Super Bowl XLIV as champions of the AFC.
This evening, they'll get a Super Bowl counterpart, as the winner of the upcoming Saints/Vikings tilt will get a shot at a league title as well.
This game is ripe with anticipation. It's Brett Favre versus Drew Brees. Reggie Bush versus Adrian Peterson. High-flying offense versus play-making defense on both sides of the field. Most intriguing of all, it's a matchup of two hard-luck NFC franchises on the verge of greatness. If you're a fan of hard-luck teams finally striking gold, you're in for a treat no matter which team emerges victories.
Here's your open thread. Enjoy the game.
