    Bears fan won't become 'Peyton Manning'

    Chicago Bears fan Scott Wiese is no Peyton Manning after all.

    Macon County Judge Katherine McCarthy ruled this week that Wiese can't legally call himself Peyton Manning because it would be too confusing and might infringe on the privacy of the Indianapolis Colts quarterback.

    That's fine by Wiese.

    The 26-year-old was only trying to change his name to make good on a bet he lost when the Colts beat the Bears in the Super Bowl.

    "I had told the judge that I was not doing this because I wanted to change my name, but I was doing it because I was honoring a bet," Wiese told the Decatur Herald & Review after Monday's ruling. "I think she understood that."

    A few days before the February game, Wiese signed a pledge in front of a bar full of people that if the Bears lost, he would change his name to match the Colts player who led Indy to victory.

    Manning had a big hand in the Colts' 29-17 victory.

    Wiese's parents, Debbie and Steve Wiese, were pleased by the judge's decision.

    "Wiese is our family name, and we're proud of it," Debbie Wiese told the Decatur newspaper. "I also didn't want to go through the rest of my life calling my son 'Peyton Manning.'"


    [size=12pt]What a chickenshiitt decision!
    To honor the bet, the bar patrons should make this guy get a big, I (HEART PICTURE) PEYTON MANNING tattoo across his chest![/size]
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    That would be better than changing your name anyway.
    Everytime he went swimming or something people could point and laugh.
