Looking for a place to have your Colts questions answered at the end of the week? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
This Friday, I will host a one-hour chat called “Horseshoe Roundup” beginning at 11 a.m. During the offseason, the chat will take place every two weeks and it will move to a weekly schedule once the regular season gets closer.
The chat will cover a variety of topics with the focus being the pertinent news during that time period. I will take your questions and try to answer as many as I can during the hour.
For this week, OTAs are in full swing and the Colts rookie minicamp took place this past weekend.
What questions do you have about the Colts 2013 rookie class? What are your impressions of this team with a 90-man roster in place and training camp just two months out?
We will concentrate on these topics but whatever questions you have, I will try and address in the course of an hour. Also, I sat in on Chuck Pagano’s conference call with season ticket holders on Wednesday night and I will share some of the head coach’s thoughts during our chat.
Feel free to join the chat via this link around 11:00 a.m. on Friday (scroll to the bottom of the page) and we will talk for an hour about whatever is on your mind.

Each morning Colts.com will take a look at the top headlines surrounding the Indianapolis Colts from around the globe. What is the local and national media saying about the Colts?
Take a look below at the top five pieces from Friday, May 17th:
By: Mike Chappell, Indianapolis Star
The CBS Sports story that ranks Irsay as the league’s 2nd best owner broke earlier in the week but Chappell offered his own thoughts via his blog.
Chappell is one of the longest tenured beat writers on any NFL team so he has great perspective when these debates arise.
Along with commenting on the Irsay ranking, Chappell points out another CBS poll that left off the Colts personnel department among the league’s top ten front offices.

Ask virtually any Indiana native and it’s almost a right of initiation for a Hoosier to at least make one visit to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the month of May.
Andrew Luck has called Indianapolis home for just over a year and he accomplished that visit on Wednesday afternoon.
Driver Charlie Kimball hosted Luck, Chandler Harnish, Matt Hasselbeck and Griff Whalen as the four players got to tour the No. 83 Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing garage.
“As a sports fan, it’s awesome to see a spectacle like this, a stadium like this,” Luck said in a Wednesday press conference at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “To see how different athletes operate and how a race car team operates compared to a football team. Hopefully it will be a little educational for us.”
Busy with school last May, Luck made sure to make it out to the speedway this year and his relationship with Kimball extends back to the IU-Riley event the driver attended with the Colts quarterback.
Kimball’s father is a Stanford alumnus and Charlie’s aunt even spoke to Luck’s freshman English literature class in Palo Alto.
Both Luck and Kimball spent part of their childhood growing up in Europe but now it’s all about the Circle City during the month of the May.
“I wanted them to come see my office, because in the Winter, it’s easy to turn on the TV and see these guys go to work on Sundays,” Kimball said.
“I wanted to give them the opportunity see what I think is the greatest sporting venue in the world – the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and see us turn laps at 215, 220 mph and give them the full Indianapolis experience.”
