A 40 Of Colt

jamie silva Area fans watching the Super Bowl are apt to cheer for the Saints, if only to root against Indianapolis and that sissy hand-flapper Peyton Manning (whose own mom calls him Peytie-Pie, by the way). Plus everyone wants something nice to happen for New Orleans to make up for the FEMA trailers. However, we have a local boy in this one, and he plays for the Colts — defensive back, special teamer, and former East Providence Townie, Jamie Silva. Here’s his bio from the Colts website.

…attended East Providence High School…was four-year, two-way starter as RB and DB…ended career with more than 4,500 rushing yards and 49 TDs on offense and 300 tackles and 16 interceptions on defense…had 2,100 yards and 29 TDs as senior…was Rhode Island Player-of-the-Year by Providence Gridiron Club as senior…was all-state choice as junior and senior… team won state title as freshman and senior…team captain was named Super Bowl MVP in senior season…also lettered in basketball, baseball and track…

So he’s a chronic under-achiever. Lately he’s been giving interviews all over the place and he always seems quite charming and grateful to be getting to the Super Bowl in his second season. Plus he has long hair. Jim Donaldson had a nice profile in the ProJo. (So how ’bout that — you’re reading about sports on the Dose!)

In conclusion — Go Jamie!

  1. Your fashionable disdain for the Colts is nicely pointed by your surreal understanding of the sport. Though I guess tomorrow will show “hand-flapp[ing]” works for a QB.

    Also don’t be so transparently jealous of the affections of Mrs. Manning toward her child. I hope you aren’t one of the sad children that don’t have a bevy of embarrassing nicknames heaped on by motherly love.
