Lions vs. Colts?

By: Laverne

I recently visited my Aunt and Uncle in Indy for a weekend.  Up until a year ago, they lived in Michigan; both born and raised.  They had always been hardcore fans of the Tigers, the Lions, the Red Wings, the Pistons, MSU Spartans, and U of M Wolverines.  As I walked through their garage, I remarked on the awesome Detroit Tiger Fathead they had on the wall.  My Aunt said, “Oh, we need all the Detroit and Michigan Fatheads.  I want to fill all these walls!”

Later that evening, we went to dinner and I brought up the fact that my Aunt just didn’t seem very happy in Indianapolis.  It seemed like a decent place to me—nice people with a little touch of southern charm seemed to be the norm.  My Uncle rolled his eyes as if to say “Oh no, here we go again…”   She hemmed and hawed for a few minutes talking about Indy just being different than Michigan and she can’t get used to it, etc. and finally she just blurted out, “I hate the Colts, ok?!”

Seemed like a good enough reason to me…
