No. You can eat really bad food. It is allowed. My wife by her own admission is a terrible cook, and I am still alive and well. 
 

enjoy the game!

haha So if you end up missing from the forum for a while, we need to check the BBQ at the Whistle stop right?

I always try to make a day of it, and eat somewhere prior to the game when I come back. Given the Covid situation, not really sure what to tell you. Not really sure what's open either. I'd probably stay safe and just do a tailgate cookout.

 

If you want to do the concessions though, here's a link to what's available.

Three of my buddies and I have met for a game for the last 15 years.  Until this year.  We'd always eat at Buco on Saturday night and St. Elmo's after the game on Sunday. 

 

Downtown Indy is (or was) really nice.  I always thought they had the best dressed homeless I'd ever seen.

I take it you just couldn't get to the game? All restaurants are pretty well open downtown, I had Fogo just about a month ago downtown

We were planning on the Vikings game, it fit all of our schedules.  Hopefully we'll continue the tradition next year.

As far as I know it still open on 16th street. I haven't been there in a while. I used to go there all the time though. Freakin Covid = Booooo.

Not a big fan of Buca (I'm an Iaria's or Iozzon's fan). But we'd basically do the same thing capping it off with Elmo's. What we would do on the front and back end of games might change on how elaborate our tailgate was. One of my cousins used to rent out a parking lot a few blocks away from LOS, and we'd have either big pitch in cookouts, or catering. In the past, close family friends owned a bar a couple blocks away, and I had a cousin who had a restaurant 1.5 miles from LOS. Ah the good ole days.

Oh, you're right about Buca.  It started out as a lark but became a tradition.  We come in from different states so it's more about the comradery than the quality.

 

You're also right about the good ole days.  I hope they're coming back.

just please make sure your pc cam is turned off.....

 

I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd been in Zoom (or Teams, Webex, Skype, etc) meetings where people didn't realize their PC cameras were on.  I had to tell one guy that it would be a good idea to put on a shirt (believe me, no one wanted to see that).  At first he was giving me this look, then he realized everyone could see him.

The good ole days will come back.   But likely not as soon as we’d all like....

 

Perhaps not until 2022.......

 

The process of making and distributing a quality vaccine for 330 million people takes a lot of time.   Far longer than anyone would like.....


Just saying....

Not sure if Iaria's is open on Sundays now, but if they are, give it a shot. Or if you're in the night before. Oldest Italian eats in Indy IIRC.

While my mind agrees, my scale doesn't.  Believe me, I am no model, but it stays on me if I eat after 9pm.  Noticed that some 25-30 years ago.  Conversations like this really hurt, haha.

I usually eat my “night-time meal” after 9pm.  Its either the biggest or 2nd biggest meal of my day.  I dont eat breakfast.  Lunch between 11 and 1.  Dinner between 5 and 6 usually.  And then... tadaaa... the nightine meal.  As i usually dont go to bed before 2, sometimes i’ll even have a snack (1 or 2 pnut butter n jelly, or a couple bannanas).  Oh, and i drink pepsi all day too.

The best part is, i’m 55, 6’3”, and weigh what i did in high school and college.  To gain weight, i have to hit the free weights HARD, and add alot of pasta, milkshakes, donuts, etc to my diet.  Im ok with the latter, but that exercise crap will kill ya!

  I burn calories watching the Boston marathon while half-asleep and laying on the couch i think.

  I have stopped telling these facts to women, as the looks i get could melt steel.  They cant just be happy for me.  I’ve also ticked a few off when they wanted us to check our fat % on one of those gizmos at a brookstone or sharper image store.

Good, clean livin’.  Haha

Well, I'm a 60 year old guy and just weighed in a couple of pounds lighter than my high school weight, BUT I work a LIIIITTLE BIT harder at it than you do, haha.  My metabolism started slowing down around 30.  I used to be able to eat like you back then.  I could eat 4 burgers, pasta, milk followed by a shake for lunch and be ready to eat again by dinner time.  That was fun.  Then I hit 30 and it started staying on me.  I gain 5 pounds and it gets more difficult to breathe, lol.

 

 

Oh...and I hate you and you metabolism too.  :lol:

    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
    • No problem on the length of the post.   I did know of Dodds in 2012 when I started following the NFL Draft closely most because of the draft that the Seahawks did that got them Wagner and Wilson. It was looked very poorly upon early and criticized before being graded the best draft in 2012 after the season was over. You are correct I didn't know of Morocco Brown until Ballard signed him from the Redskins.    To me, it is pretty much SB or bust now. I went through 14 years on the Colts with Peyton, a top 3 QB of all time, and only won one SB because we shared the conference with the greatest coach/QB combination of all time. Fast forward a year when we are fortunate to get another franchise QB, Irsay hires a GM/Coach combo that has no idea what they are doing, we don't protect Luck, he gets injured, and he retires not only halfway into his career at 29.   Now QBs like Mahomes, Watson, Mayfield, Allen, and Lamar are either elite QBs for other teams in the conference, or leading their teams to the playoffs every year. Meanwhile, we had a one year band-aid with Rivers, and he retired on us. We lost our LT to an early retirement, we lost a decent amount of coaches, and we'll probably lose at least one of Dodds and Brown next year. For what? A playoff win in 2018?   I paid my dues as a fan with Manning and Luck. A top 3 QB of all-time and a top 5 QB that retired in his twenties. 20 years combined and one SB win. That's it. I was robbed of 10 years of QB play from a top 5 QB that would of kept us contending right now if it weren't for a shoddy GM. I don't want to go through this part of the journey anymore. I want to contend every year. I want to win another SB. 1 SB win with 20 combined years of Manning and Luck isn't good enough.
