New Era “Speak with Your Cap” contest winner

Posted by coltsindianapolis on September 27, 2013 – 3:18 pm

This blog is one of our “Fan Features,” from Alyssa who won the New Era “Speak with Your Cap” contest and was chosen to represent the Colts as their ambassador for a photoshoot. Below is a recap of her trip to New York and all the fun she had representing Colts Nation!

“In June I had the amazing opportunity to take part in the NFL’s and New Era’s back to football Photo Day. The Photo Day took place in New York at a studio called Location 5. Being a small town Canadian girl I couldn’t believe what I was reading when I received an email telling me I had been chosen to represent the Colts!

From my understanding my boyfriend and I were to be flown to New York and I was to partake in a Photo Day working with the NFL and New Era. To my surprise it was so much more than that. On top of being styled by professionals in the sickest Colts gear and New Era hats and getting my photo taken, there was also an interview and a video portion (see below). There is no question about it, I love being in front of the camera whether it be video, full body or profile shots.

Another amazing surprise was that we got to tour the NFL headquarters! We had the chance to see where the Commissioner did his work, had meetings and where the games were reviewed for any fines or missed calls. Not to mention every super bowl ring dating back to the very first super bowl. Seeing the NFL headquarters for any football fan is like being a kid in a candy shop, I just couldn’t get enough.

Thinking that this experience couldn’t get any better, I was completely blown away when the Commissioner himself, Roger Goodell showed up at the studio for our group shot. He did a meet and greet with all the team winners, signed mini footballs and took individual photos with us.

This was a once in a lifetime experience and I would like to thank the NFL and New Era for letting me be part of the Photo Day. I think what made it so over the top incredible were all my fellow winners (and guests of course) from the other teams. Everyone was great! I made so many new friends and we became like a New Era and NFL family in that short time we spent together. We still all keep in touch and we’re all battling it out in a fantasy football league this season. The amount of passion I saw in every single fan has made me fall in love with football and the Colts all over again. All 32 fans and guests came from all over the world, some from England, some from Canada and some from the United States. We all cheer for different teams but we all came together through one sport, football. It made me realize that football is so much more than a sport, it unites people together and makes life long friends.

Go Colts!!”

COLTS FAN CASEY: 2013 DRAFT BLOG

Posted by coltsindianapolis on April 25, 2013 – 5:14 pm

Indianapolis-Colts-Draft-728x90

What’s up Colts Nation!? Yes it is Draft Day and yes Colts Fan Casey is back out of hibernation to ring in the real start of the 2013 season, the NFL Draft. It’s a little hard to get more excited about this year’s draft than last year’s considering the fact we drafted Andrew Luck with the first overall pick, but there’s a lot of reasons to be excited. One of those being that we go into the 2013 Draft without a laundry list of needs since we addressed the “BIG NEEDS” via free agency. I won’t talk too much about the free agency signings other than the fact I am VERY pleased with the direction that Ryan Grigson went with his acquisitions.

Now back to the Draft and more specifically Draft Weekend. The Colts have a lot of stuff going on for their fans throughout the next few days. Details below…

COLTS, ANDREW LUCK, AND THE NEW ERA

Posted by ColtsCaseyB on April 26, 2012 – 5:58 pm

CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR 2012 NEW ERA 59FIFTY DRAFT CAP

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,

Colts Fan Casey
