I have been a Colts fan since I can remember. I watched as the team struggled through the Jeff George era and teased with success under Jim Harbaugh. I always thought Jack Trudeau got a pretty bad rap, for some reason I remember him doing some positive things growing up.

Either way, I attended Anderson University baseball camp for three or four years as a kid and was about as interested in watching the Colts hold training camp as I was in the instruction I was receiving on how to be a better baseball player. I remember watching Quintin Coryatt, Roosevelt Potts, getting Marshall Faulk's signature (no easy task) and convincing (or so I thought) Ted Marchibroda to keep Sammie Burroughs, an undersized LB, on the team over lunch in the Anderson University cafeteria one day (I still have a newspaper article which features Burroughs making a play in one of our home games).

Once Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James joined the team, things started to turn around for the Colts and it became that much more fun to follow the team. Each year I follow the team more closely than the previous one and my knowledge of the team, including every player on its roster and even its practice squad at any given portion of the season shocks family and friends who want to talk "Colt football" with me from time to time. I enjoy discussing the Colts and speculating about our team's future and look forward to continuing this fun ride with Peyton Manning behind center. GO COLTS!
