Irsay expresses his happiness for Manning going to Super Bowl

In 2012 Colts Owner, Jim Irsay, released Peyton Manning after 14 seasons in Indianapolis. Fast forward two years, Colts fans are now watching their once beloved quarterback play in the Super Bowl with another team. Irsay expressed his happiness for Manning to the Indianapolis Star Wednesday.

"I just couldn't be more excited," Irsay said. "This is what we were hoping it was going to be — a win-win situation for everybody. I'm so happy for him. We've already talked this week about getting him some extra tickets and I told him, 'You've got it, buddy. Go get 'em. Go win it.' I wish him all the best.

While the Colts had a good run, they were knocked out of the playoffs by the New England Patriots during the second round. Fortunately for Colts fans, Manning remained for them to cheer for as the Broncos defeated San Diego Chargers and Patriots. It is likely many fans in Indianapolis will once again be cheering for Manning to win the big game.

Irasy explains, "I couldn't be happier because he will forever be a Colt and a part of so many years of greatness here. I'm just really rooting for him to get that second ring. That would be awesome."

The Super Bowl is scheduled to take place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, February 2, 2014. This, of course, depends on the weather that is expected to hit the New York area next weekend.
