    Sorry slacking I'm a little late on posting Wow hats off to TY Hilton, your only going to get better. Reggie Wayne have always been a fan way to break some records. After the game I loved when you said "When your in for 12 years, you'd better do something." Keep it up! Freeman on defense way to get in there and sack Fitzpatrick and leaving an impact for people to remember your name. Mathis props on the other sack. Defense is getting to the point they are clicking well holding them to 4 of 13 3rd downs. Offense blocking is key Luck was sacked 4 times, I know it happens and Luck has def proved he can take a hit and get back up. All in all proud of this young team following the leadership of the veteran players to keep getting better. The Colts cheerleaders whom shaved their head, bald is beautiful. It was also great to see coach come out and wave as over 60,000 of us cheered him on to his recovery. Go Colts all day every day no matter who we play =)

    No record setting passing stats, no incredible runs, no game changing plays on defense (almost was) just 60 minutes of solid team football. Got to start off with that unit (special teams) since I had planned on not mentioning them again, the rest of the year, they made the game changing play.............Hilton's 75 yd punt return TD, the first for the Colts since 2007 (T.J.Rushing).... a very good game for the coverage units vs one of the leagues best returners and a big game for McAfee, who was singled out as a guy who needed to step up......and did. Wasn't too excited when we traded away (another ) draft pick to move up and draft Hilton, who became the first Colt to catch a TD pass and score on a return, in the same game, but he is really making a name for himself and becoming more of a threat, each game. Reggie led the way (8-102), Luck had a solid game, the O-line took a step backwards, the running game, was adequate. The defense, did enough.........Freemen is back........had a monster game with 16 tackles and a sack, Mathis added another sack and Zbikowski made the ALMOST game changing play with an interception, before fumbling it right back to the Bills, the key stat....4/13 in third down defense. What happened to Angerer??????? who was not even credited with "1" tackle????? That leaves us with a 7-4 record, alone in 5th place for the playoff seed, 1 game ahead of the Bengals and 2 vs the rest of the pack ( leaving the Ben-less Steelers out of the mix) next up the Lions, who despite their un-impressive 4-7 record, have as many big time players on offense as about any team around

    So it finally happened. I finally got to see my beloved COLTS play in PERSON! My parents and I flew New York to Indy to watch my beloved COLTS take on my dad's beloved Bills. When I first learned we were going, I was beyond excited. I pretty much could not believe that we were actually going to a game! You have to understand-- I've been a fan of the COLTS for years now, and had never witnessed a game in person. In 2009 when Buffalo hosted Indy, I remember being sour that we didn't try to get tix to the game. My dad kept telling me that it would be cold, snowy, miserable, and the Colts would rest their guys. Unfortunately, all of the above came true. However, our time had finally come. Week 12. Lucas Oil Stadium. When I saw the stadium for the first time coming into the city from the airport, it finally started to hit me. This was for real. We were REALLY here. Ate dinner Saturday night at the Colts Grille and had a BLAST. Walked around the city a bit and visited the Monument Circle-- beautiful! Having travelled all day, we headed back to the hotel and bed around 10PM. The next morning was game time! Sunday came. We got ready to head over to the stadium; all three of us in CHUCKSTRONG t-shirts and wristbands (I had bought 3 of each for myself and my parents), me in my Luck jersey, my ma in my Unitas jersey, and my dad is a Stevie Johnson jersey. We headed over and got some pictures with a couple of the cheerleaders, and headed inside as soon as they opened the gates. This is when my trip was MADE!! I took some pictures of Andrew and a few of the guys tossing around and warming up, as well as a bunch of the Bills players (Fitz, CJ Spiller, Kyle Williams and others), then headed to OUR side of the field. My ma was with me while my dad stayed to watch the Bills players warm up. The two of us got down to the front row next to the SuperFan section. Those guys were awesome-- I got a picture with them and they were all smiles! A couple of minutes later, I saw Cory Redding pacing around with the most intense look on his face. He walked right up to where a bunch of us were standing. I extended my hand to him.... and received the most amazing hand-shake of my life. I was speechless. A couple of people next to me had things for him to sign and he didn't turn anybody down. I pulled out my program and a sharpie and he signed it for me. I thanked him and wish him the best for the game-- what a class act Mr. Redding is! A truly inspirational and powerful figure wearing our uniform. That autograph and hand-shake absolutely MADE my trip (the first of many!) to the Luke. Win or lose, I was completely absorbed by the moment. We got to our seats about 20 minutes before kick-off and watched the kickers. I will never forget the goosebumps I got when they aired the video of the highlights of the season just before the starting line-up was announced. When The Who started playing, I was so pumped up for the game that my eyes were filling with tears. When the fireworks went off and the boys came running out, it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I knew we had the best fans in the league, but when that team came out of the tunnel and when Chuck received a standing ovation in the fourth quarter, I realized how special this ball club and the fans really are. When Megan and Crystal Ann had their heads shaved as well, everybody was such a class act. The trip to Indy was truly a dream come true. The atmosphere at Lucas Oil Stadium as well as all over the city is truly spectacular. As cliche as it may sound, I am truly honored to have been a part of that 12th man effort on Sunday. I felt a little bad for my dad, but I was surrounded by over 60,000 family members, and we were ALL #CHUCKSTRONG!
