      maybe I'll get the lawn mowed... ha.. oh wait, it's homecoming weekend.. no mowing

  2. Back after an extended absence. Some of you know about my 23 year old step-daughter who has battled health problems since the age of two. She passed away on September 13th and I've been in New York with my wife. Good to be back, but still picking up the pieces.

      YEP!!!!!!!! Obstacles are inefficient, follow your intuition, free your inner soul and break away from tradition.Burn it till it's burned out.

      Turn it till it's turned out.

      Act up from north, west, east, south.

      trending the same way Gramz...Indiana had tornadoes and flooding from Munster the Evansville....gotta watch it...

      I think it's time they just moved New Orleans to higher ground...who builds a city below sea level and on the coast?

    4. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      @Barry, I know, and on an important eco system too, but the history there, can't be redone, needs rethought...any flood plain, very risky to populate. Stay safe everyone, I do hope there are no tornados

      Yes SW1 if we did your 5 day weekend then the weekend would be our strong end. I'm a product of public education and this is giving me a headache!

  11. Getting fired up for game 3 this weekend....Go Colts!!!

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yeah, I can't remember a year like this one where Preseason Games take on a level of intrigue similar to a regular season division rival. Playoffs? You wanna talk about playoffs?!! Next year Jim Mora. Next year.

    2. BNS

      BNS

      It is nice to be excited about the preseason for a change...so many roster spots up for grabs. And, a chance to get to know all of the new Colts, too.

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      I was wrong....game is at 4.....Bristol Night Race....what a Saturday!!!!

  12. Great effort Sunday night!!! I'm very encouraged and even more excited about the upcoming season!! GO COLTS!!!!

    1. Nadine

      Nadine

      Same! That was flat out fun to watch. Really nice effort!

    2. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      I agree completely! We might not have won last night, but we played well. I think our O line and D line are doing great, not to mention the bullets that Andrew is throwing. I like how he doesn't let mistakes distract him for the rest of the game. And what about Ballard??? Oh yeah!

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      The hitting was terrific. A couple things learned....mistakes on special teams lose games, mistakes are killers....but 2 80 yard drives after mistakes...is priceless. We also learned that Larry Foote's elbow has a magnet that just had to hit Austin Collie late. Looking for a fine.

  13. Bring on the Steelers!!! I'm looking forward to SNF!!

    1. Nadine

      Nadine

      Me too although I admit it makes me nervous

    2. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      excited for this test.. I think the Colts are going to pleasantly surprise us!

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      The Colts just need to improve on the mistakes and continue to play with passion in all phases of the game...and we all know it is another game toward a 53 man roster...

  14. Great game to start the new era...it was a TEAM win!!

    1. BNS

      BNS

      I agree...it's just one pre-season game, but I think it set a tone. I believe the pre-season is more important this season with so many roster spots up for grabs.

    2. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      sounds great! I love hearing it was a "team win" Go Colts!

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Preseason games are primarily used to evaluate & discover fresh, new, undiscovered rookie talent. I never put much stock in these meaningless games at all. Yes, they are useful in tweaking o-line & d-line configurations, but victories or losses don't really matter here. It did serve to calm the fans nerves though. But, beware of swinging the expectation pendelum too far in 1 direction.

      Nice to see the U.S. women bring home the Gold! Hey MCF, since your daughters both play soccer themselves, do they each have a favorite player, and if so, who is it? I'm just curious...

  16. Our cable provider just removed NFL Network from our channel line-up!!!! What's up with that??? GRRRRRRRR

      Barry, I have Dish. Not Direct. Used to have Direct, but they made me angry. My internet provider (Indiana Data Center) charges $24.99 a month. As far as snow/ice, I have never had any problems unless the storm was bad enough to wipe out my power. In which case, of course, I wouldn't know whether my service was working or not.

    3. BNS

      BNS

      Thanks for all of the replies. The house I bought last year used to have Direct TV and the dish is still mounted on the roof of the garage, but I wouldn't be able to access it to clear snow and ice without fear of hurting myself. Maybe if I got it, they'd take that one down and mount it on the side of the house? I always got the Colts on the local CBS affiliate, but now that they aren't as good and the Bengals are better, they'll start showing more Bengals games, even thoug...

      I'm pretty sure they would, Barry. The story about why I was angry with Direct is too long to post here so I'll send it to you in a message. Reading it may give you some tips in case Direct does give you a hard time.
