.....And with the first pick of the 2012 Draft, the Indianapolis Colts choose Andrew Luck! Luck ..Luck... Luck..... (echo trail off) I cannot wait to hear those words uttered and then for the day the Andrew Luck actually runs out for the first game and takes his position behind the center for the Colts.
Oh, pardon me I apologize for my provocative title to mislead you into thinking that I wish bad luck on our team. I would never wish that or want it. I just wanted you to stop and read the blog. Maybe, It was over the top but you must really get to know me better since this is my first blog on this site. I know we have not been formally introduced so let me get that out of the way by telling you a little about myself briefly and then back to the blog title.
My name is Jaggededge. I am a Colts fan, memorabilia collector and occasional blogger. I am a transfer from the Direct Colts site and am thrilled to be here with the rest of you fans and look forward to reading your blogs, comments and looking over your videos and photos here on Colts.com. Okay, now back to my blog.
Luck will be a part of the "Newly built Monster," that is being currently put into place. What is even more strange is the guy holding the clipboard and QB position behind him may be our old nemesis from the Jaguars, Byron Leftwich. How is that for topsy turvy? Luck will have to orchestrate and implement a lot of things as a QB with the Colts while digesting and learning on the fly. Although he is familiar with some aspects of what his responsibilities will include he will need to adjust to the other new players and the veteran play makers as well. I think he will perform well.
Now, it will not be easy to replace a legend, but the Colts have been shall we say "Lucky" thus far and hopefully the only Luck that will run out will be the afore-mentioned one onto the field to receive the snaps under center. I can see the headlines already in my mind's eye..."Colts 'Drew Luck so Rams Stuck with RG3." Makes a nice caption eh?
So although the only draft I ever get excited for is usually my beer, I think this year I look forward to the exception.Also with a lil. Luck we may be back in the saddle again! Thoughts?
