Sightseeing at the Luke

Recommended Posts

I've been to plenty of games but never have done anything but get carried away pregaming while tailgating. Is there any must see things in the stadium anyone would suggest? Is the super bowl trophy on display anywhere?

Been to Lucas several times but have never seen the trophy on display anywhere, but with the crowds I may have walked right past it and not even noticed. I’m guessing Irsay has it at his mansion or on display at the 56th street practice facility with all of his other expensive collections?

 

Surely you’ve seen the Peyton Manning statue outside? It’s a must see if not, I usually have a few words with it pre and post game, kind of a ritual now I guess.(people look at me weird , but I don’t  care.)Spent a while there the night Luck retired. Sad day.
 

Theres the Lucas Oil Dragster on display that I’m sure you’ve seen, along with a few other Lucas Oil displays.....there might be more but with the crowds it’s usually a struggle to get grub/drinks and get to my seat.

ST Elmos is always a must. If you are a big meat eater Fogo Dechao is a great place but be prepared to eat. They have some decent bars to go to, I really enjoy Punch bowl social, brothers and Howl at the moon. There is also the slippery noodle in the area if you're into blues. The circle center monument is always cool along with the museum at the speedway. If you go north there is topgolf which is a blast along with all sort of indoor go cart places.

Something I've done at several stadiums of all sorts (football, baseball, hockey, bball) is to take a nice walk around the entire place after the game for a few pictures and to see if there's anything interesting I probably missed. They usually don't shut the place down for 2/3 hrs after games.

If in Indy , St Elmo’s is a must. That and Peter Luger’s in NY are my favorites . Not sure where the Colts 2006 trophy is, maybe with Ringo’s drum set !

If you want to see the 1970 Super Bowl 5 trophy , it resides in Baltimore at the Babe Ruth Museum. Occasionally , they have opportunities to take pictures with the trophy.

If you like eating, St Elmos like others have said. A few mile drive gets you to Iaria's if you like Italian. If you like drinking, Slippery Noodle if you've never been. 9 Irish Brothers is good food and drink. If you like to walk, the canal walk, or just bar crawl to and from the circle. If with a bunch of guys, the Red Garter is close. A bunch of Colts used to hang out there in the late 80s to mid 90s lol.

    • With 3 interceptions Winston's QBR was 11 points higher (better) than Brissett. This shouldn't even be possible when you score 35 points but we did it.  Our completion % is horrible 
    • We're just starting to get all the pieces of the puzzle. This needs to continue, but we need to learn how to put them all together and play for 60 minutes.   We really need to figure out how to address suffering too many injuries. I suspect people are trying to overplay their positions and talent level. This is especially true when one player tries to cover the mistakes of another player. Just don't do it!
    • Agreed. That is what is so dang upsetting about this season. This TEAM is better at every position than it was two years ago and even last year (when healthy) except for one position. That being QB. Brissett is not a bad QB. He’s a solid QB but he’s still lacking in several non-physical areas. Being that they are mental, perhaps they can be coached out. But I don’t think he’s going to be much more than a Alex Smith type QB. I see that being his ceiling. Now does Ballard pull a magic trick and upgrade, maybe. That remains to be seen
    • The sticking with the zone D was my biggest disappointment. I don't expect miracles from Brissett or supposedly elite Hooker (who admittedly is tackling better but seems out of position a lot either by mistake or by the design of the D). Maybe they were afraid to play man out of some combination of fearing they couldn't match the speed of Goodwin/Evans or with Moore being out. But the zone obviously wasn't working. If they had to stick with it, couldn't they have at least changed it up to put at least one lb in the deep middle like Okereke to try and stop the not so slow death of playing zone D?
    • Still hope we draft a receiver or target 1 in free agency. Maybe trade for Godwin
