–All times are EASTERN—

 

For the first time, flexible scheduling may be applied in Weeks 5-10. During that period, flexible scheduling can be used in no more than two weeks by shifting a Sunday afternoon game into primetime and moving the Sunday night game to an afternoon start time.

 

Also, for the first time, a select number of games are being “cross-flexed,” moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences.

 

“Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 11-17 as it has been in recent years. In Weeks 11-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 28. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into primetime.

FAN FEST IN FORT WAYNE

Posted by sscarpin on – 9:37 am

The 2014 Summer Tour ended last Friday with our final Fan Fest. After Colts Day at Vincennes University, Fan Fest in Greensburg, and Fan Fest in Louisville, our Colts crew headed to Fort Wayne for one last event. The Fan Fest was part of Fort Wayne’s annual summer festival, the Three Rivers Festival, and we’re glad the Colts were included at this exciting event!

After three other successful events, we knew the drill – the inflatables were up, Colts in Motion was open, the Mobile Pro Shop was stocked with plenty of apparel and hundreds of posters were ready to be given away. During setup, fans eagerly waited in line hours before the event. By the time players Bjoern Werner and Anthony Castonzo arrived via helicopter, the crowd in Fort Wayne was ready and excited to get autographs.

Castonzo attended the event during the Summer Tour last year, and he was looking forward to being back in Fort Wayne for another great Fan Fest. “We’re kind of living in our own little bubble getting ready for the season, but then coming out here and meeting the fans and seeing their excitement really gets us pumped for this fall,” Castonzo said.

Werner added, “It’s really exciting to see Colts fans outside of Indianapolis and to see how all of Indiana supports the Colts.”

After getting autographs from Werner and Castonzo, cheerleaders and Blue, our younger fans enjoyed our Horse Slide inflatable, Football bounce house, and Play 60 Zone. Other fans listened to the live music provided by The Hunter Smith Band and registered to win Colts tickets. Colts fan Mary hopes she’ll win the tickets to a game. “The last time I went to a Colts game was fifteen years ago,” Mary said. “I better win these tickets!” We agree that it’s time Mary went to another game to cheer on her favorite team!

The Three Rivers Festival includes their popular “Junk Food Alley”, a line of food trucks with all types of fried fair food. Castonzo remembers eating the delicious food from Junk Food Alley last summer.

“I had a pork chop that was out of this world, and then some kind of bacon waffle creation. Whatever it was, it was amazing.”

Werner said he was hoping to sample some of the food after Fan Fest. “I haven’t had much fair food before, but I’d really like to try some of the German food here.” We made sure that the players went home with some treats from Junk Food Alley!

Colts fan Leslie brought her sons Colt, age 5, and Jake, age 2, to the event. The family had a special story behind Colt’s cool name. “He was born during a Colts and Steelers game,” Leslie told us. “We went to the hospital at the beginning of the game, and he was born before it even was over! That’s why we chose ‘Colt’ for him.” It sounds like Colt was destined to be a die-hard Colts fan!

We had a great time with more than 1000 fans who came out to celebrate Colts Fan Fest! It’s been an awesome summer for the Colts as we’ve toured Indiana and met thousands of the best fans in the NFL. Thanks, Fort Wayne, for wrapping up our tour with a successful Fan Fest! Now it’s time for an exciting season! Don’t worry, we’ll be back in a year for the 2015 Summer Tour. Go Colts!

FREE BLUE LIGHT BULBS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT IMPD

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 7:06 am

FREE BLUE LIGHT BULBS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT IMPD

In honor of the men and women of law enforcement and to support the Indy Going Blue for IMPD effort, the Indianapolis Colts are joining with Meijer and GE to provide 4,000 free blue light bulbs for local Hoosiers. These light bulbs will be available from 4-6 p.m. on Friday, July 11, while supplies last, at the Pike Plaza Meijer (5349 Pike Plaza Rd, Indianapolis) and Southport Road Meijer (5325 E Southport Rd, Indianapolis). The bulbs will be available near the front of the stores, inside the general merchandise entrance. One bulb per person.

 

The Colts, Meijer and GE were inspired to organize this effort after learning that Central Indiana residents who wanted to join the Indy Going Blue for IMPD movement were having a difficult time locating blue light bulbs in the Indianapolis area. The organizations are encouraging residents to show their support for IMPD and all the men and women of law enforcement by changing out their porch lights with the blue bulbs on Friday evening.

 

*Note: Meijer is also working to make additional bulbs available for purchase Friday afternoon at their other Indianapolis area stores.
