Nah, but I was wondering why so many people were called Manningface.

Peyton is kind of a stupid name, but in today's America, most parents are naming their kids Aiden or Shantavious.  So really, maybe Peyton's not so bad after.

FTFA: "Peyton Ragsdale was born on Aug. 12 of that year. But his mother suffered from serious hemorrhaging during the birth, damaging the new-born son's internal organs. He died three days later. Mom and dad kept the bib."

Ok, I am a horrible person to start with.  But this didn't just make me laugh, it made me happy.
And I get a feeling that these parents will care more for the bib than they would for their son.
And it probably will have more value too.

i wish you hadn't pointed this out, because i went to check the article....


-"One of them was Colts a baby bib, which Manning signed during training camp in 2006."

nice editing there lou, i bet you used spellcheck and everything

-"There was one complication upon returning home. Lissaman said Peyton is primarily a girls' name in New Zealand, but he wanted to honor Manning. The compromise? He and his wife named their son Eli - yes, after Manning's brother, Eli, the quarterback for the New York Giants."

because when you run out of herp, it is best to double down with the derp

One of my coworkers, nowhere near Indianapolis, named her baby Peyton. Even though her kid is a girl.

Colts fans are staggeringly bandwagon.  There's a guy in this area -- we live near D.C., and anything but a Skins or Cowboys fan is sacrilege -- who attached a gigantic Colts flag to his truck.  He was known in the area not only because of the flag, but because he would yell out his window at any vehicle that identified a different NFL team.

And then the Colts went through the Orlovsky/Painter era.  Down went the flag.

Saw him in his truck the other day.  There's a large 49ers flag on it now.

\boy, won't he be disappointed

So who is Peyton Manning named for?

That's right, Peyton Place. The 50 shades of grey of the 1950's.

Hardly seems fair to judge an entire fan base on the actions of one dumbass.

A dumbass that lives on the east coast... which is about as far from the normal hoosier in Indiana.  Don't get me wrong, there's dumbass hoosiers, but they're nothing like the east coast stupidity/

Speaking as a mathematician,   this article completely fails by giving no context as to how common Peyton is A:  As a name in other places, and B:  Before Peyton came to the colts.

/Out of context statistics:  Way number 2732 of lying with math.

So Peyton is going to appear on Maury a lot moving forward?

I cant wait to see his I'm not the daddy dance.

Colts fan in DC area. Used to live 2 miles from Ravens training camp. Now work basically across the street from DannyBoy's team offices. Put up with the Jeff George era, not just Curtis Painter.

Funny thing is, I don't catch any grief out here over my Colts gear. Granted, I was quieter about it in Baltimore but after moving south...not so much. Guess they're glad I'm not another Steelers fan.

I wonder if being a boy named Choke helps you grow up tough the way Johnny Cash claimed Sue would

I wonder if those kids are going to dominate until things actually matter like their namesake.
