It’s been an exciting, but long week for your friendly neighborhood blogger men (and woman) here at GLS as we’ve intensely followed all things Peyton Manning Super Bowl. We’ve given you everything from analysis to irreverence, we’ve pissed you off with our taste in halftime music, we’ve done awkward interviews with supermodels, and we’ve offered advice on how to date a Cowboys cheerleader.

The last few items there were clearly light-hearted and fun, and came from Gagnon’s interviews on radio row and elsewhere during his adventures in Indy this week. But before we sign off on a Friday night prior to an active but lighter day tomorrow in anticipation of Sunday’s awesome insanity, we needed a true moment of comedy.

So thanks for the incredibly awkward and blatantly staged family photo, Jim Irsay and Peyton Manning.

After a week of conflicting reports during the ongoing Manning fallout in Indianapolis that will eventually see the Colts’ franchise quarterback become the former franchise quarterback in about a month, the stench of a disagreement between Manning and Irsay was still lingering in Indy.

So logically, that picture along with this statement will instantly make all of that dissolve and disappear.

Peyton Manning, Jim Irsay and the entire Colts family remain close and unified as we continue to work through all the options that relate to his future with the Colts.

A good time was had by all at the Colts party Thursday night.
