"Let me tell you something, Peyton won't sleep much this week because of the emotions and excitement that he's probably feeling. I can't speak for him, but I know what I went through. It's pretty emotional. I spent a lot of years there, like he did, and you become almost friends with the city."
"Indianapolis is similar to Edmonton in that it's not New York or Los Angeles. So you're at the stadium, and the places you go to eat, and the people you meet in the community are the people who are in those seats. So they become friends. They're not just fans, they become more like friends. So it becomes very emotional.
"I know that was a really hard day for me because in one sense I was looking forward to playing again in Edmonton, and in another sense I knew eventually they would start treating me as the enemy."
-Wayne Gretzky comparing his return to Edmonton and Peyton Manning returning to Indianapolis this weekend. More from Sam Farmer of the LA Times.
