Stephen, still drying out from the Super Bowl. I was at the game cheering the Colts to victory! Best three hour shower I'll ever have...

Congrats (from a Bears fan) on a great win for the Colts.

Thanks, Jim, for the info on Phoenix. I'll pass that on in the next episode.

And, thanks, Mark for being a good sport. The Bears day will come. Having followed the Colts since I was six (wore a Bert Jones jersey growing up), it was really special to see them win the big game in person. The city is riding a great wave of euphoria despite the 7 inches of snow that fell today upon our return from rainy Florida. I've been grinning like an idiot since Sunday and I'm not sure I'll stop until August.

Enjoyed the episode. I finished it yesterday! Great job as always. I really enjoy the pictures that go along with the podcast, it wouldn't be the same without them. I think I listen to most of the board gaming podcasts out there and The Spiel is in the TOP. Very well done, informitave and entertaining. I'm not just blowing smoke.

Congrats with the Colts too. Although I think the Defense or Adai should have recieved the MVP. Still a great win though.

Thanks for the very kind words, Ryan. We'd never accuse you of blowing smoke.

The enhanced version takes alot of extra effort, but I think it does add alot to be able to see what we're talking about WHILE we're talking about it.

Since the Super Bowl, I've been grinning like an idiot. Don't think I'll stop until next August. I was hoping the offensive line would get the MVP. It would have been unprecedented, but they played amazingly well keeping Peyton clean and blowing the Bears D-line back on run plays.

Spiel on!

Stephen

Very enjoyable episode, helped pass the time while I was waiting like many Canadians for a passport for my daughter. Had to resist going down the road 100 metres to the game shop to get 'Cleopatra...', would have done as well if I hadn't been waiting in line for 3 hours and may have lost my place.

Thanks, Bill.

I'm sure your daughter would have saved your place in line.

I'm in the process of renewing my passport (anticipating a trip to Essen this year or next), so I hope it doesn't take me three hours of waiting!

Spiel on,

Stephen
