It is November, and the Colts are back on top of the AFC South. Ahh, that is a great feeling. Colts fans have been spoiled by our team's consistency in producing great starts to the football season and making a run at a perfect season. This year started differently--with a loss in Game 1 to the Houston Texans. But the good news is that the Colts are still the Colts. Tony Dungy's work ethic is still in place. Whenever a player goes out due to injury, another player is ready to take his place. Each one plays wholeheartedly. And Peyton is well, Peyton. The Sheriff, as the MNF commentators referred to him Monday night. Peyton is finally receiving the accolades that he deserves. "His practices are unlike any I have ever seen. Peyton runs them and is completely in charge." (paraphrased)
Why do I mention the Colts in a blog on Realty Insights? The Colts provide a rallying point for our community. Clinton Kelly of TLC's What Not to Wear was in Indy recently for a book tour. When asked about the fashion he saw in Indy, he commented that everyone everywhere he looked was wearing a Colts jersey. He was amazed. At my office, every Friday is Blue Friday. All of the staff and agents are encouraged to wear their Colts gear. And we are not the only ones. It is like the whole city is part of a special club. A club that believes in the good guys--the guys that win or lose won't let us down. They will give it their all and make their city proud.
What else can I say? I am fortunate to be a Colts Fan.
