Yes, Boys and Girls, it's football season!!!!

Are we ready for some football or what?!?

I don't have anything to say about bad sports writing per se, but since I am "The Football Guy", I'm going to throw my hat in the ring. There is a small piece of "writing" that really has my dander up! The Indianapolis Colts are my team and by now the ENTIRE world has heard about their new home. The "state of the art" Lucas Oil Stadium is a beautiful facility. I was awestruck when I entered that North gate for the first time. Almost brought a tear to my eye in fact. Well imagine my thrill when I got to my seat and took in the full view of the new glorious field. Sure I had to take along my portable O2 tank to get to my seat, but it really was beautiful.

I look down at the large Colts helmet from the same opening view you'd get from a telecast with the announcer saying (in his best radio/TV voice) "Live from Lucas Oil Stadium...". Really quite impressive. Until...

I see, from LEFT to RIGHT, Colts in one endzone and Indianapolis in the other. Now I realize that most people probably didn't even notice this minor transgression, but this has been pissing me off for years!!!!!!! I've spent the last four seasons wondering why in the world anyone in their right mind would arrange them in that way! Are they the Colts Indianapolis? NO YOU FREAKIN' MORONS!!! They are the Indianapolis Colts! Again I understand that Indianapolis is not that far removed from some of the more rural areas in the Midwest, but even I learned in school that you read from left to right. Would it have been that hard to put Indianapolis on the Left and Colts on the right? You know, so that when the national audience looks at the sky view they know they're looking at the home of the Indianapolis Colts? I'll admit that I haven't checked every stadium out, but from those I have observed, it ALWAYS reads city/state and then team. I was somewhat glad the RCA dome was going to be replaced because I was just sure they wouldn't screw it up again. I mean if you're putting in new turf, in a brand new facility, at the cost of millions of taxpayer's dollars, surely you will right this terrible wrong, RIGHT?!?

Uh, NO!

So now I'm going to spend the next 25 or 30 years thinking the same thing every single time I take in that view....HOW CAN THESE PEOPLE BE SO STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alright, I'm done...for now. But don't think I'm going to let this go because I got it all out. I'm probably going to end up in a bell tower someday screaming "It's Indianapolis Colts you dumbf#@*$!!!

He's finally emerged from his mother's basement. Lights are bright, aren't they, Bert?

In all fairness, at least it didn't say the "Chefs Indianapolis". Oh great googly moogly!
