Balancing act


Saints and Colts players find a way to balance work time with some play time for which Miami is notorious.

Saints and Colts players this week are navigating the delicate balance of preparing for Sunday's game but still enjoying South Florida's nightlife.

"As you get older, it's not as difficult," Colts running back Joseph Addai said from Alonzo Mourning's King Pin Classic charity event Tuesday night at Lucky Strike Lanes. "You get used to it."

Among the Super Bowl player sightings this week:  Saints quarterback Drew Brees treated his offensive linemen to dinner at Prime Italian on South Beach, and Saints safety Darren Sharper took the team's other defensive backs to dinner at the same restaurant.

When "Jared" from the Subway ads came into the restaurant, several Saints linemen erupted and started chanting his name.

Meanwhile, several Colts dined at Prime 112 on South Beach, including  cornerback  Marlin Jackson.

And former Steelers great Franco Harris bought Cristal champagne for Saints and Colts  players at the restaurants. Classy move.
