As a longtime Indianapolis Colts fan, the title of the blog entry was easy to type. But I am not referring to No. 18, who now plays for the Broncos.
I am sending out a big cheer for Peyton, the Vinton-bred English springer spaniel that won best in breed today at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and will compete tonight to represent sporting dogs in the Best in Show finale.
This breed has a special place in my heart: the dog I had as a kid was Sparky, an English springer spaniel, was the sweetest I have ever known.
You can follow the action tonight on the USA network, or if you are feeling social, you can drop by the Lucky Dog Pub in Botetourt County, where a cluster of Peyton fans will gather to cheer him on.
Good luck, Peyton!
