    Football--haha! Sorry, you knew that didn't you?
    Other than football, I like being outdoors (especially in the Spring and Fall when temperatures are perfect). I keep busy outside of work on my farm where I have between 30 and 40 head of cattle and half a dozen pigs. (Nothing like raising your own meat! So much better than what huge chain stores offer.)
    When I'm not working on the farm, I'm playing with my niece and nephews. Family is a big deal to me.

    A favorite quote of mine is:

    Jabber, isn't that what my nephew does (he's still figuring out the whole talking thing)?
  1. Tough loss today. There is much to be picked apart for improvement, but ever the optimist I am going to say as a football fan there was much to be excited about as well. TY Hilton is going to be a heck of an asset (we saw a glimpse today), Ballard is indeed going to be a beast of a player, Mathis is going to excel in our new D (as I predicted), I LOVE Cory Redding and the asset he is, Lefeged is great on Special Teams, our O-line while not complete is well on its way (with a few additions/im...

      additions/improvements) to being something great, and our QB Andrew--WOW! All I have to say is 50 on the ground yards AND a head about him in the last 45 sec of the game that no other rookie can boast. There is no doubt we made the right decision in #12. Much to be excited about fellow fans, let's not be discouraged!

      Yes, I agree CP11. It would have been nice to cap Edge's induction into the Colts HOF Induction Ceremony with a win today, but that still doesn't detract from James's incredible NFL career and professional legacy IMO buddy. :)

      I am with you CP11....staying optimistic. Saints 0-3, NE 1-2....we should have won this game, but there were positives in every phase of the game. Bye week...try and get healthy...come back with a tough one against the Pack. And Edge is in the ring of Honor :)

  2. Geared up and ready for game day tomorrow :) All day in Indy cheering on our boys = perfection...a W would make it priceless!

      Have a great time...wish I was there. Have fun!!

      Do you have your Edge jersey on buddy? I feel so badly....I have not spelled his first name correctly anywhere....it Googles win=the 1 r and two...I feel horrible!

    3. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      Brent I had a BLAST today! Too bad we lost (a little frustrated w/ our D and a LOT frustrated w/ the second rate refereeing we had to witness today--and I'm not one to complain about the refing in a loss), but overall it was good and I saw good things from our guys...more on that to come...I do not have a #32 jersey, but it was great to get to witness The Edge inducted today. Well deserved indeed!

  3. Loving that the icing on my cake on Sunday while I will be at LOS is The Edge getting inducted into the Ring of Honor. It's gonna be a great Sunday for sure!

    1. BrentMc11

      Edge was AWESOME in INDY!!! Very Cool Indeed & Well Deserved no doubt. Have fun at LOS my friend!!!

      NICE! Love Edge, miss Edge. Enjoy!

  4. I saw promise today. Definitely not as ugly as it could have been or as some said it would be. My chin is nowhere near down, nor should any of our player's. We have a better idea of what specifically needs improving, now it's time to correct those mistakes and go get 'em next week. Remember, we're still BUILDING the monster, it isn't BUILT yet. In time fellow fans, in time. GO COLTS!

      Great thoughts CP11! Some here announce Doomsday. This is the first year for a new team, there will be tough times periodically. GO COLTS!

      I was glad to see the Colts make a game of it.. some impressive glimmers with lots of room for improvement, but overall not bad, not bad. Get those mistakes under control and look out!

    4. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      This team has zero quit....zero. There were positives to take away from all three phases of the game....Build the Monster......'not yet built' This team will get better....if we have any players left :(

  5. tough pill to swallow watchin the Cowboys win last night...anyone but the Cowboys...ug!

      I can't stand that they call them "America's Team." It gets me everytime! I'm w/ ya SW1.

      Brent, you're right. The Giants made way too many mistakes to win the game. Plus, we all know they end seasons better than they start them (the Giants).

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Now with Reitz oout for Sunday...the Link and Olsen stuff is up and going again.... for us.....I am rooting for the Colts even if SW and I are on the line....:)

    4. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      There we many good positives from today. I'm pretty pleased with what I saw. Some improvements to make, but definitely the start of something good here...

  6. ready to go hunting... ...BEAR hunting! Time to Soldier up! (And we might have a little Luck on our side ;) )

      OK...thought I was going to have to get with my friends in the FBI to find CP11's status in the Witness Protection Program! I will go hunting Bears with all of my Colt friends! Good to hear from you CP11!!

    4. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      haha!! Brent you made me literally laugh out loud! I'm ready for this Bear hunt and I'm confident that our Colts are too. I can't wait to see the game unfold. I liked what I saw out of so many positions during preseason, and honestly think this monster is stronger than the rest of the NFL will give it credit for. I'm ready to shock the world!
  7. Reggie's hope/prediction to "shock the world" seems more like reality to me :) LOVING what I'm seeing so far! SO glad it's football season...our monster is about to be released COLTS NATION! Are you ready?? :)

      Sorry guys, I haven't been on since I posted this, but it is good to know that my forum friends are seeing what I'm seeing! I could watch Reggie play all day every day. I'm PUMPED about what I'm seeing from both our O-line and D-line--wheweeee! Not to mention the QB position is looking strong all the way through. Ballard is a BEAST! And I like we're (coaching staff) being extra precautionary with the boys by pulling Collie, Redding, and Mathis. Gotta have...

    3. ColtsPRIDE11

      Oh and Brent, glad I could help buddy!

  8. well...after a few weeks away to focus on trying to sort out this messy thing called life (not exactly successful I might add but ok), I decided I missed my Forum friends and so, here I am! Although from some of the statuses and comments I've read, maybe it's not good to be back???

      Hey buddy....I missed this yesterday. I know it is hard to believe, but I am even avoiding the nonsense :) If it annoys me I have not even responded....hard to do.

  9. Well friends, I will be signing off for a while. Too much going on btwn work and personal life. Gotta get things in order. I should be back for preseason action.

    3. BrentMc11

      The swimming is incredible. Phelps has some US competition this year for sure....very interesting...just like the unknowns with yes our new Colts.

      Yup, you can't say that there's nothing to watch on TV right now. That's for sure my forum friends. Can you say AWE$SOME?!!!

  11. In honor of the Edge being inducted into our Ring of Honor, I have made him my profile pic. Congrats Edge!! You are as you say "always a Colt"!

      Thanks Sw! I loved watching him run the ball for us. Shoot, I remember going to the games in the RCA Dome and man when he ran the ball the crowd LOVED it! ...kinda miss that old stadium...but don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade LOS for anything!

    3. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      I love it! wonderful idea, love Edge. I remember the Indy fans giving Edge a standing O and a warm greating when he came to town to play as I think it was as a Seahawk at the time, 2009.. I just remember how classy the fans were, how much they loved him and the big huge grin on Edge's face and a little mist in his eyes!

    4. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      I love Edge, and he is one of those players who will always be ours in my mind (and in his too :) ) My signature on here is a quote from him: "No matter where I go or what I do, I'm always a Colt." And I'm like you MCF, our fan base is classy, just like our team. Makes me proud to be part of Colts Nation.

      Thank you Gramz....CP11.....exactly the same with me. The lack of rest is a killer. To not have a restful sleep is painful to say the least. One thing at a time! Great advice. You will persevere!

  13. Drew Brees = $100 mil 5 yr contract...welp, looks like the Saints finally secured their QB.

      I like Aaron Rodgers as well, but the Green Bay Packers are a solid football team. My comments are made for the Bounty Boys. There is no reason with what has gone on in New Orleans that paying Brees took this long. Rodgers will get his money...just as PM and Brees got theirs. Pure and simple...him being franchised was a slap in the face IMO.

    3. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      I do like Rogers Nobody. My comment above might make it sound like I don't. And I do think he is a very talented QB (and runs a close second to Brees last year), but IMO Brees was the best QB in the league last year. This is something I thought about quite a bit during the season, and yes GB won more games last season but I think they have a more complete team. Look at what Brees accomplished with a lesser team. Again this is just my opinion.

    4. ColtsPRIDE11

      ColtsPRIDE11

      I've watched Brees play since his college days at Purdue, and I diagree with anyone who says that he isn't a high caliber QB and football player. The guy is talented. Way talented than many NFL QBS bar-none.

  15. Man, you gotta feel a little bit sorry for Sean Payton. The guy does have it rough. On top of his NFL pbms, him and his wife have filed for divorce. (Now I'm not saying he didn't have it coming on the football end of it cause he did, but man this rough.)
