Waiting for the Big Game

Could it be good vs. evil?

Hunter Smith, punter for the Indianapolis Colts, will sing on Gospel Music Channel tonight before Sunday's highly anticipated Colts/New England Patriots showdown. He might want to sing some prayers because it looks as though the Colts will be the underdogs this week.

In the interest of full disclosure, I was born and raised a Colts' fan in Indianapolis so I have my biases. But CT Movies Editor Mark Moring describes the Colts/Patriots showdown as "Christians vs. the bad guys." Maybe it's because he admires Tony Dungy. Let's be honest: who can't help but love the guy? This, compared to the Patriot's coach, who was fined $500,000 after a Patriots video assistant was caught by NFL security filming the New York Jets' defensive signals. Wide receiver Randy Moss is no favorite either.

So I'm not the only one who thinks it could be good vs. evil.

In the meantime, if you don't know what to do with your time until the big game, consider re-reading CT's past football coverage.
