Colts announce their own Kickoff Concert

When Colts owner Jim Irsay took to Twitter to announce a Kickoff Concert the Friday before the opener, we didn’t expect the act would be the inoffensive 1990s pop staple Gin Blossoms.

Then again, Irsay would have had to dropped some “SERIOUS coin” to bring in some of the ’60s acts he more routinely refers to on Twitter, at least the ones that are still alive.

The event’s free and open to the public, and a good chance to turn the weekend of the opener into more of a spectacle than it already is.

Unless, of course, the Gin Blossoms take a page from Bon Jovi and cancel in the  next few weeks, leaving the Colts holding the bag. But with a tour schedule filled with wineries and casinos, it doesn’t seem as likely as the Browns’ latest embarrassment.
