What’s up Colts Nation!? Well, it has officially began, the highly anticipated Indianapolis Colts “new era” is officially underway and man it feels good to be a Colts fan! Now before I get into yesterday’s game, I realize it was a preseason game, and I realize that in years past these games haven’t exactly mattered to a majority of you. However, preseason games do serve a purpose and when you look a Colts team that has a lot of young and new players you realize the importance of this year’s preseason. In addition to that, preseason games allow for coaches to evaluate every position, tells them where they can improve, and sets the tone for the next week of camp.
But most importantly, we won, and I think every single member of Colts Nation feels better about this team today than they did yesterday. All the anticipation was worth it and now we get to watch this team grow. The team we saw on Sunday will not be the same team we will see this weekend against the Steelers. They will improve. This team will continue to improve every game and that is something both players and coaches will pride themselves on.
And how about Andrew Luck’s first play ever from scrimmage as a Colts? You want to talk about COTLSTRONG, Lucas Oil Stadium was rocking after Luck completed a 63-yard touchdown pass to running back Donald Brown! I’m not going to lie; I got goose bumps when I saw them connect and instantly knew Brown was taking it to the house. What a way to kick-off a season and especially a career.
Prior to the game, I hit up a few tailgating spots. For it being a pre-season game I was pretty impressed with the turnout. One of my favorites was the “Blue Scoot Crew” who had a Colts bus with memorabilia all over the place. They even had a built in restroom which of course was covered in blue. Before every game this season, I will be searching for the best tailgate spots and food in all of Colts Nation. I will write a blog this week with complete details.
Yours in Football,
