More than a month ago, I asked the question, “Will Manning finally wear a Super Bowl ring this year?” We’ll know the answer to that question on Feb 4th of this year. Peyton Manning was responsible for the biggest comeback in NFL conference title-game history when the Colts beat the Patriots 38-34 in Indianapolis today to win the AFC Championship.

 

Surprisingly, when I  wrote the article earlier, planetsk made some really good predictions:

Given the present form of the teams I think Pats play Colts for AFC and Bears play Cowboys/Seahawks for NFC. So, Colts may have tough road ahead to make it to Superbowl and Pats having successful experience recently at the Bowl can beat any team (IMO) if they make it to Miami.

He got three out of four teams right. Great prediction!

Don’t let the heat go off the SPARKS

Ok, I will try my best to write this miscellaneous post.

Nothing new is happening in the new year except Abhishek Bachchan’s exceptional performance in GURU and his engagement with Ash. I watched the movie last week after a lot of struggle to get tickets. To my wonder, even in 0°F and snow, tickets were sold out for three consecutive shows or two days. I was surprised to see AB has got such a big following in US or in MN. May be Mani Rathnam and Ash were another factors. Anyway, I would recommend this movie if you really want to see some fine acting by Abhishek, great songs (yeah, they are really good when you watch them) and Abhishek again.

In sports related news, Sania crashed out of the Aus-Open. Will she ever enter atleast Quarter Finals in a Grand Slam ? Final showdown in NFL, I am guessing Pats Vs. Bears Super Bowl?? (of course will be knowing it by Sunday). David Beckham will be bending it in LA for $250M . Thats news to me. Soccer in US and that too in LA. Finally Cricket, India got another chance to get back to some kinda form before they go for world cup. Playing in India,Ganguly and Sachin may come as openers, changes in the team from last year..can these bring good things for India??

After lot of rumors, Apple iPhone will be arriving pretty soon and it’s already controversial as Cisco filed a lawsuit against Apple on using its trademark. It seems LG is also planning to come up with something similar to iPhone. MS Vista will be available worldwide by Jan30th. Thats good news for Zune and MS. The technologies and features in Vista appear to be solid especially Windows DVD Maker, ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive. Will wait to see them in application very soon.
