Kelvin Hayden Jersey: Reebok Blue Replica #26 Indianapolis Colts JerseyOur injury report reads like a fantasy football team—it’s amazing how well we did yesterday with 2nd and (sometimes) 3rd string players. The defense sure showed their stuff this week. Hello, interceptions! I’d like to see a little more of that, for sure.

Kelvin Hayden really stepped up—I’m hoping to see him snag a career high number this year. He’s halfway there already—and we’re just over halfway through the season. I’ve decided the best way to make that happen is to convince the sea of blue in Indy to start wearing his jersey!

So, hang Manning’s jersey back in the closet, and grab a #26.

Real Men Wear Pink

Published on October 4th, 2010no comments

Last year, the NFL really stepped up its support of Breast Cancer Awareness month and this weekend’s game kicked off the 2010 Crucial Catch campaign. This year focuses on encouraging women to have an annual screening to catch breast cancer before it’s too late—early detection is the key to survival. Players, coaches & referees donned pink in support of the fight against breast cancer. (Although, did you see Ron Winter struggling with his pink whistle? I guess it’s a good thing he brought a spare.)

I just love to see the guys on the field, sporting pink gloves, towels & shoes! If you’d like to have the same pink & white hats the team wears on the sideline, they are available for purchase. And, this is the only time of year I don’t get irritated at all the pink Colts stuff marketed to women. We bleed blue around here! But, it’s a great message so I fully support breast cancer pink.

Three Things Thursday: Halloween Edition

Published on September 30th, 2010one comment

Fall is my very favorite season—and not just for football! The girls love it too. There’s the candy, of course, and dressing up. But they love the decorations, trips to the pumpkin patch & Halloween-themed clothing. My youngest is actually having a Halloween party for her early-November birthday. Earlier this week, we pulled the fall decorations out of storage. It is my plan to sort through them, pare down a bit and start decorating for Halloween.

Here are my favorite Halloween-themed Colts things:

Indianapolis Colts Pumpkin Carving Kit

Price: $14.75
One of the girls’ favorite decorations are the pumpkins—carved, painted or bedazzled, they love to have them on the porch and around the house. But carving is so much work! Enter craft pumpkins, which you can store year after year to show off your mad pumpkin carving skills. I have a white craft pumpkin set aside for some intricate Colts carvings—I want to put a string of blue lights in them to really finish it off. This will be a Halloween decoration I’m pretty sure I can justify keeping around awhile!

Price: $44.99
Of course, ever child’s favorite part of Halloween is the trick-or-treating! We’re all going as Disney characters this year, in honor of our October trip to the Magic Kingdom, but I love this Colts costume! It includes the helmet, jersey, pants & foam padding. (Please note, this padding is cosmetic only and not for use as actual protective gear.)

Indianapolis Colts 6.5&quot Halloween Pumpkin Bucket Indianapolis Colts 6.5&quot Halloween Ghost Bucket

Price: $19.99
And, while they’re out knocking on doors, be sure your Colts star is carrying the right tool for ultimate candy collection. The pumpkin & ghost bucket each sport a Colts helmet. The handle is easily removable if you’d like to use it as a candy dish.

Dad’s Lucky Socks

Published on September 27th, 2010one comment

Yesterday, my dad did laundry for the first time in my adult life. Possibly EVER. And, why? Because amidst the chaos of my sister’s wedding, his lucky socks didn’t get washed last week. He realized Sunday morning that he’d need them before the Colts game, and my mom refused to indulge his, um, obsession. So, he learned to do laundry—now, that’s serious dedication to the 12th man position.

But, it worked—so I guess I’m off to find socks for the entire family!

Dad’s Lucky Socks—I think the hubby already has the same pair. Is that weird?

There are a variety of women’s Colts socks out there, as it turns out, but these are my favorite.

I can’t get my preteen on board with Colts stuff very often, but she loves unique socks. This style is right up her alley.

Indianapolis Colts Preschool White All Over Logo Print Socks

My girls have actually had these socks in every size from infant to toddler and now we’ll have to get a pair that fits again.


Of course, the real game changer was Austin Collie’s career high game. I wonder what socks he was wearing?

Three Things Thursday: School Days Edition

Published on September 23rd, 2010no comments

Earlier this week, I passed several kids walking to their school bus wearing Colts jerseys. It is homecoming week around here so I think it must have been a spirit day—it wasn’t game day and Blue Friday is tomorrow! Here are 3 fun ways to show Colts spirit every day at school:

Indianapolis Colts School Combo Pack
Indianapolis Colts School Combo Pack
Price: $15.95
My girls love notebooks & folders, even outside of school. They journal or draw in their spiral notebooks, then carry around the important results in a folder. This school combo pack includes 3 notebooks, 2 folders and 3 memo pads.

Indianapolis Colts Insulated NFL Lunch Bag
Indianapolis Colts Insulated NFL Lunch Bag
Price: $5.95
Packing school lunch is my least favorite part of the day, but it has to be done. I use Easy Lunchboxes, but we still need an insulated tote to carry it to school.

If you need a little more room for your lunch, try the Indianapolis Colts Royal Blue Insulated Lunch Bag. Or, you can go completely old school with this Indianapolis Colts Tin Lunch Box & Thermos.

Indianapolis Colts Royal Blue-White Southpaw Backpack
Indianapolis Colts Royal Blue-White Southpaw Backpack
Price: $24.95
My kids actually have a backpack for school, one for the library and a third for road trips. This one has padded straps for comfort, plenty of compartments for storage and—oh, yeah—the Colts logo!
