We knew it was coming. We could saw we knew for a while. We knew the Colts were going to take Andrew Luck with the first overall pick, but when Roger Goodell said “with the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Andrew Luck, quarterback, Stanford,” I simply got goose bumps.

I vividly remember the last time we were in this position. I was a little boy sitting at home watching it on TV. Tonight, sitting at Colts Grille surrounded by hundreds of Colts fans was a much different experience. Everyone was happy, everyone was cheering, and every single one of us wanted Andrew Luck as our next quarterback. For a team that finished 2-14 less than 5 months ago, it was an opportunity for us, the fans, to cheer for this new era of Indianapolis Colts Football.

As if we’re the lucky ones. Andrew Luck himself is ecstatic to be a Colt. He knew he was coming here, but he still was excited. He still was smiling ear to ear to because he was coming to represent this city, this state, and Colts fans worldwide. He wanted to wear the horseshoe.

It’s not going to be the easiest ride, but if anyone can handle it and is up to the challenge, it’s Andrew Luck. When his live stream from Colts.com was played at the Colts Grille, and he said he can’t wait to come here, you could tell it was genuine. Oh, and the entire place went wild!

This is our moment. This is our time. We are at the center of the football universe for the time being. So enjoy it Colts fans and soak it up. Oh and be sure to come join me and the rest of “Blue Nation” at Lucas Oil Stadium tomorrow night at six as we welcome Andrew Luck to this great football team!

The Colts No. 1 pick Andrew Luck will put on the New Era 59Fifty Draft Cap in a few hours when he’s drafted. Get your own right here from the Colts Pro Shop and be like Andrew in this new era of Colts Football!

GO HORSE! COLTSTRONG!

Forever in Football,

COLTS, ANDREW LUCK, AND THE NEW ERA

Wow, what a great day to be an Indianapolis Colts fan! I know the last few months have been full of mixed emotions, but tonight is finally the night that the Colts will name Andrew Luck their next quarterback.
I remember a little over a year ago when all the speculation was about Andrew Luck going pro after his junior year. As a Colts fan, whoever would have thought that Luck would be our next quarterback? I know I sure didn’t! But here we are, it’s April 26th 2012, and the Indianapolis Colts have the first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Andrew Luck happens to be who we’re taking as GM Ryan Grigson said earlier this week. It sure has been a wild ride.

Obviously Luck is just one piece to this new era of Colts football. I’ve been watching some of the videos on Colts.com during workouts and practices and man is there a new level of energy or what!? All of the coaches and players talk about the energy that surrounds this team and it’s traveled out of the complex and right into my head. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE 2012 SEASON!!!

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what I am most excited for. This whole new regime and new era has me super excited to be in Lucas Oil Stadium during the 2012 season. My favorite part is the excitement that surrounds the 2012 Colts. I’m like a little kid waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve!

We have a new quarterback, who happens to be Andrew Luck, a new coaching staff headed up by Chuck Pagano with a new level of intensity, not to mention “building the monster” that is our defense, some key offseason additions such as Cory Redding and Tom Zbikowski, as well as the new Nike Jerseys and New Era hats. Such a thrilling time to be a Colts fan!

So in closing fellow Colts fans I say this, think about the great memories from the past decade of Colts football, cherish them for what they are, but at the same time, share the same level of excitement and energy that the players and coaches have exemplified. What is great about this season is we don’t know what will happen, we don’t have expectations, but we all know we’ll be along for the ride. A ride that has me on the edge of my seat, ready for the Indianapolis Colts to continue their pursuit of greatness sharing the same passion as me and you!

The Colts No. 1 pick Andrew Luck will put on the New Era 59Fifty Draft Cap in a few hours when he’s drafted. Get your own right here from the Colts Pro Shop and be like Andrew in this new era of Colts Football!

GO HORSE! COLTSTRONG!

Forever in Football,

New Day In Indy

Posted by cwoodmd on April 12, 2012 – 8:41 am

The sun comes up on an April morning.  At first all seems quiet at W. 56th street headquarters.  But something is stirring.  There has been activity here before, but not quite like this…Something new…something different…a new scent perhaps.  Something other than the traditional bacon egg and sausage biscuit now wafts through the air.

“Feed the beast”.  I hear someone say from behind closed doors.  But no one quite knows what it wants.  “Feed the beast!” again a little louder.  But no one knows what it needs.  “Feed the beast!!!” louder still until a voice responds “I know just what to give it.”

Suddenly a noise explodes from the building like a great monster awakening from centuries of hibernation.  I become a little worried the Kraken is real.  But I know it is just a myth.  Clearly there is some non-mythical creature here now, some new monster created for the express purpose of… of what?

I see the door to the facility open a crack and out comes bits and pieces of a Titan – scary really that so little is left.  I try to catch a glance of the beast inside but to no avail as the door slams shut.  Something is still stirring inside. I am caught off guard by the sudden onset of the howls of a jungle cat.

“Release the beast now” a voice bellows from inside, and the howls are replaced by the stomping and braying of a monster.  “This is no ordinary horse” I think as I see the door once again open a crack as the hide of a Jaguar is launched beside the Titan.  I would really like a look at this animal now.  My curiosity as to what could be inside turns my own innards around.

Then I realize the animal has not finished.  I hear more bucking and braying followed by shouts of…of…fear maybe?  I am not sure.  The muffled yells fade and the door opens for a third time.  It appears to be a Texan, caught in his own rope, hopping out the door until the end of the rope appears to snag and he gets yanked to the ground and dragged back into the building.

“Oh, this can’t be good” I think out loud “at least not for those Texans”.  After a few more hollers and whimpers the building falls silent.  I wait a while, hoping to catch a glance of this new Colt that could cause such destruction to Titans, Jaguars and Texans.  But as the morning passes my innards focus more on my own instinctive needs and I don’t believe I can wait any longer.  I turn to go, pausing a second to listen once more for the monster that is growing within the building, but the silence is deafening.

I know then that I must plan a trip to Anderson in August to see the beast in action.  I don’t want to be in the dark when the new dawn rises.  But for now, that bacon egg and sausage biscuit is calling my name.
