  1. Oh don’t Worry Kenny NOLA definitely will know who you are this season. But that was pretty funny.

  2. Hey, kids, get yourself covered in tats so you can be an individual….just like everyone else!

  3. Putting up a banner of Adam Vinatieri on “Lucas Oil Stadium” is a lame attempt to claim Vinatieri’s history from the Patriots. Vinatieri hasn’t done nearly the things he did as a Patriot. Hanging a banner of him on the side of your Stadium based on his accomplishments as a Colt seems hollow. I can see the Patriots doing that, because of what he did there, but the Colts? Putting a kicker on the side of your stadium? I mean he’s been a good kicker for them but history will not record his greatest moments as being in a Colt uniform. Just not gonna happen. Perhaps they are saying “Look! We paid to have the Patriots all time place kicker on our team!” Woo hoo!
