Following our #SchoolBreakfast event, we headed over to Lucas Oil Stadium for a top-to-bottom tour.
Now, I’ve been spoiled in the recent past with Colts tickets & on-field appearances, but I promise you, I will NEVER tire of entering this facility.
After entering a glass elevator & reaching the Quarterback Suite…
seeing firsthand where the press passes will get you…
visiting the keg room where we learned the Colts fans go through 350+ kegs per game…
& even entering the locker room…oh, the locker room,
i could almost hear the game-day soundtrack resonating in my head.
Even without jerseys hanging from hooks, we walked in & could feel victory, well, besides our sweet tour guide sharing that the only other time the Colts locker room has been taken over by a team is when the Patriots visited our beloved city & lost (!!!) Super Bowl 46. whomp whomp whomp.
Also, interestingly enough, we learned that the locker pictured below on the left was/is Peyton Manning’s & the locker on the right is Andrew Luck’s (recognize it from the photo seen round the world?).
But that’s not all, while most lockers are occupied each & every season, ever since #18 left the circle city, no one has taken over his space.
We love P-money, always have, always will.
We ended our tour of the turf, naturally. And even though I didn’t do a touchdown dance for the rest of the sight-seeing crowd, I could’ve stood in that painted end zone forever.
Six years ago, I toured this stadium for the first time, & the excitement felt back then is much the same today.
It never gets old because there’s no place I’d rather be cheering on a team than right here, proudly screaming for my boys in blue.
