A club still in the running for the playoffs excites Colts fans

Indianapolis, Indiana – Before the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers game on Saturday afternoon, Colts supporters were bursting with optimism.

“I think we are going to win, outright,” Colts fan Tim Mihalik said as he walked into Lucas Oil Stadium. “I think Pittsburgh is in a spiral going down, and I think we should be able to take them out easily.”

Mihalik’s prophecy came to pass as the Colts defeated the Steelers with 27 straight points.

“I was so happy. I believe in my Colts and everything, and I’ve been a fan since day one,” said Colts fan Kersty Nash.

Matt Gibson devotes a great deal of time and energy to the Colts as well. He and his companions drove down from Northwest Indiana, and they refused to enter the game until their hunger and thirst had been sated.

“We got some fresh deer sausage that my 14-year-old son harvested this year,” Gibson said. “We got that back from the butcher. We had our company Christmas party last night and we had a food truck they made some tacos so we have some fresh tortillas.”

Gibson and other supporters have a new perspective on the rest of the season because the Colts are poised to make the playoffs.

“Last three games are huge, given the injuries that we have suffered,” Colts fan Albert Gonzalez said. “It’s really nice to see that we have rebounded and turned our season around.”

Along with the basketball fans at Gainbridge Fieldhouse, where #3 Purdue upset top-ranked Arizona, spectators traveling to and from the game had to contend with them.
