I'm a new Colts fan! Why, you ask?

71 posts in this topic

Welcome! I say this because I want to see this fanbase grow for all the right reasons. I want to see Colts jerseys being worn like we see Steelers or Cowboys jerseys at games they arent even playing in by their fans. Living on the east coast and having always been a Colts fan, sometimes I wondered if I`m the only Colts fan on earth. Until I met my wife, an Indy native and then finding great fans on here.Walking into a sports store out there while visiting her parents and seeing nothing but Colts stuff was the most awsome thing for me. Speed Blue everywhere! The Indy Colts should be "Americas team"..get the word out!

Tell a friend......we welcome all new comers. Ya know when you think about it, i guess i take for granted how good of an organization this is.......really, we dont deal with the drama that teams like Dallas and The Aint's DEAL with and i like it! Also i like the traditional feel, maybe im a homer but this team feels like home to me, my family all love the Colts, it brings us together, we are sad for a loss.....and on top of the world on a win. But our dedication is never in question whether we are in the Superbowl playing the Bears or 2-14 and watching our future Hall of fame quarterback leave town. One thing i always know is the sun will rise over Indianapolis and we will be champs again!!!!!

Unfortunately, we are sadly lacking representation in Antarctica.......gotta get more fans down there.

On a related note, how cool would it be if when the NFL branches out to other countries, they put a team down there? Lambeau Field ain't got nothing on the Arctic Tundra.

Welcome to the forum & fan base.

I've been a Colts fan since '65, when I was 9.

This is a pretty good place to be.

Everyone's generally accepting of other's opinions, and there are some very knowledgeable people posting here, as well.

BTW, you got the division spot on.

Welcome, Coltsfan_NYC. We have a wonderful owner who keeps his noggin out of football business for the most part and lets the football people do their thing, and that has fostered a culture of winning, IMO. Dungy was a great hire from a point of view of establishing a sound culture of character focus as well, and it sure has carried over for the most part, IMO.

I am sure you will like it here. And last but not least, the mods on this forum do a terrific job moderating and keeping things civil, makes for a pleasant experience for all of us. :)

After having not been to Indy in 20+ years, I've taken my family there a couple of times since this past summer.

I agree with you, it is awesome to see all the Colts hear in stores, and being worn around town.

Actually, I took my son to his game (Dolphins) a couple of weeks ago.

It was a great game to see, and he was in awe.

I'm from NC, I first started liking the colts about 14 years ago, my older brothers team was the dolphins and they faced the colts that year and I just stuck with them since. I survived the Peyton manning break-up on march 7. I don't really like to see people hop on bandwagons when that team starts doing good all the sudden, but o well. Welcome to the blue man group

We stopped for breakfast one Friday morning on our way out there and all the employees were wearing Colts jerseys or t-shirts. Blue Friday is awsome, something I wish we had the luxury of around here! I`m 43 years old and still in awe anytime I walk into a stadium the Colts are playing in..lol, some kids never grow up

Welcome to the Blue Nation!!! I married a beautiful lady from upstate NY a little over 2 years ago, and she's finally going to move here to Indiana in January. All of her family are Giants fans, but they all respect the Colts so I never get any flack from them. Once she's here, I'm sure she'll pay more attention to the Colts, but I don't expect her to change her allegiance to the Giants. She'll have co-favorite teams to root for now.

Wife and I are going to the Colts-Bills game and we're very excited!! This will be our 3rd trip to LOS in the past 2 years.

Glad to have you here!!!

From one out of state Colts fan to another, welcome aboard.

Honestly you won't find a classier organization in all of football. Thank God our board is not flooded with QB controversy, bad ownership threads, uniform changing threads... that stuff doesn't go on here but it does in nearly every other fan base.

Here you just sit back and enjoy Sundays. BTW, I reccomend a field trip to Indy. Best Midwestern City in the US and I've been to them all.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
