Colts Cheerleaders Shave Their Heads In Tribute

2 posts in this topic

I saw yesterday a first in the long history of the NFL with two of the Colts cheerleaders having their heads shaved in tribute to the disease coach Pagano has. I don't know much about that man but when so many do so much in his name he must be a very special human. Hats (and hair) off to the two young ladies that did the deed for a very good cause. Something extra special is happening with this franchise and it is a good feeling to know those people are doing good things for a good cause and a good head coach. This is more important than the success they are having on the field.

I was at the game and they showed the head shaving on the big screens. One cheerleader (Megan) agreed to have her head shaved if Colts mascot Blue could raise $10,000 to go to leukemia research....well, Blue raised over $22,000!!! The other cheerleader (Crystal) is a leukemia survivor and she also had her head shaved during the ceremony.

Later, in the 4th quarter, Jim Irsay walked Coach Pagano to the balcony of the Owner's Suite and when they were shown on the big screens, everyone in the stadium stood and cheered the coach. He was obviously very touched by the standing ovation and you could read his lips as he said thank you to the crowd. It was a very special day and I'm so glad I was there to see it all.

      How's that? He dominated. He was on 6 Championships teams and won one on a Bucks team where he was the main option way before he teamed up with Magic. He also has won the most League MVP's with 6 and is the all-time leading scorer in NBA history. He even played against 7'0 footers nightly by playing in the 80's unlike Wilt or Russell so he even has that. I would be curious to hear what 5 Centers you have over him? Hakeem wasn't better either, he didn't have near the career Kareem had. Shaq didn't either. I rank Kareem #1 as far as Centers.

      It depends on our offense.  If it takes off and starts to give us leads early, I think this defense will play inspired and will be in the top half.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      Fair enough. As to Jabbar I'm not even sure I'd put him as one of my top 5 Centers all time

      If this defense finishes mid-pack. .. like the 13th - 18th range. I think it'll have done pretty well. The lack of depth at pass rusher and CB have me very very worried.

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
