"Hello boys and girls. We're going to learn a new word today. Doesn't that sound like fun? Sure...I think it'll be lots of fun.
We're learning about the NFL. The National Football League. Can you say that? Football? Sure...I knew you could.
You know, most times football teams are very good or very bad. Look at this team...the Indianapolis Colts. Can you say that? Indianapolis? That's a big word isn't it? Indianapolis. Try it once. Did you say it right? Sure...I knew you could.
The Indianapolis Colts used to be a very good football team. One year they even won the Super Bowl. Can you say that? Super? Sure...I knew you could. Their quarterback was a man named Peyton Manning. The quarterback is the most important player on the team. He gets to decide which plays the team will use to try and win the game. Can you say that? Quarterback? Sure...I knew you could.
Before last football season, Peyton Manning was injured. Can you say that? Injured? That's another big word isn't it? It means that he got hurt and wasn't able to play. Because Peyton Manning was hurt, the Indianapolis Colts became a bad football team. In fact, they were the worst team in the whole league. They didn't win the Super Bowl last year.
The Colts were so bad, after the season they fired their coach. That doesn't mean that they set him on fire, although I'm sure some of their fans wanted that to happen. No...it just means that they didn't want him to coach the team anymore. Can you say that? Fired? Sure...I knew you could.
The new coach has even started firing some of the players. That means they won't be playing for the Indianapolis Colts next season. When a team does this, it's called 'rebuilding'. Can you say that? Rebuilding? That's another big word, isn't it? Try it again...rebuilding.
The Indianapolis Colts are probably going to be bad for a very long time. Their fans will probably say 'they suck'. Can you say that? Suck? Sure...I knew you could.
