Babe Ruth never swung for the fences in the top half of an inning at The House That Ruth Built.

He always wore pinstripes at Yankee Stadium.

So it will be weird Sunday night to watch Peyton Manning quarterback a team other than the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, AKA The House that Manning Built.

After his arrival in Indy in 1998, Manning spearheaded the raising of the Colts franchise from an occasional playoff participant to a perennial NFL power, all through the last decade. He led Indy to the playoffs almost every year and a Super Bowl championship after the 2006 season.
