After disastrous interception vs. New Orleans Saints, Peyton Manning a man of few words

MIAMI – As a kid growing up in New Orleans, Peyton Manning surely dreamed of throwing the touchdown pass that won the Super Bowl for his beloved Saints.

How many times was he in his backyard a few miles from the Superdome playing catch with his dad Archie and brothers Cooper and Eli and dropping back and firing the pass that brought the Lombardi Trophy to Bourbon Street and started a wild celebration?
Manning threw that touchdown pass Sunday night, and it was Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street, but the dream was his worst nightmare. He did it in a Colts uniform.
