It is the end of an era in Indianapolis.
In just the latest example of Washington spending big money to bring in a player who may well be past his prime, their newest acquisition leaves behind Indianapolis to continue his career in the nation’s capital. Many are questioning a six-year commitment this late into his career, but those involved feel his track record is worth the big bucks being shelled out.
A source close to him had this to say: “Of course he’s upset to be leaving Indianapolis. He had a great career there. But quite simply, Washington is a much better fit for him at this point.”
Though shocking to the casual observer, the move was a long time coming…
… as it actually happened in 1977. That was the year Dick Lugar sold his home in Indiana and moved to the Washington, DC suburb of McLean, Virginia. Being that he no longer represents the people of Indiana, Washington’s big spenders are eager to fork over the money to put him on their team.
Lugar’s thoughts on the Colts releasing Peyton Manning are unknown.
