Read a little blurb that Indy officials are handing out blue towels before the game...god, is that lame.

Can't anyone come up with an original idea anymore? It's like a bad reality TV program...

I always find it funny when a team hands out a towel to drowned out the Steelers towels.

They aren't just handing out a few, they are handing out 60,000 of them.

cool, 60,000 towels waving around will make the steelers feel like theyre at home. after all they have blue in their logo too.

maybe j. porter will make those towels shut the f up

no it's just the year 2006 where everybody copies somebody or something, the era of people with no talent jumping into a world they should never dream about. But the word lame is not even the word to be used here, it should be more like Wack!!! The Colts are officialy gay!

Guys, since this is the 21st century lets call it what it is: sampling. They're sampling the Terrible Towel.

Blue Towels??

Colts fans seem more like the Pom-Pom type.

I have to give them credit for being a little smarter than the Chargers. They handed out white towels at the gates. The whole place looked like a Steelers road uniform with all the white & gold in the stands. I guess maybe the powder blue would just look to gay.

The idea of towels didn't come from the Steelers, so why the big fuss over teams having their own towels.

I know Roger Neilsen was one of the first people, and fans got the idea from him when he Put a white towel on a hockey stick, and raised it in the air as if to say "We surrender" Because the reffing was terrible or something. The fans of his team then proceeded to wave around white towels, every game. Not sure if he was the first, but it's one story i know.

Myron Cope came up with the idea of football fans waving towels. As a matter of fact, he asked some of the Steelers players to help out, and they were skeptical, thinking "This will never last". Maybe there was some parallel in the hockey world, but the fact is Myron's idea took off, and the imitators have tried (and failed) to successfully steal the idea a hundred times over since...

To be specific...it was linebacker Andy Russell who was skeptical telling Cope, "We aren't a gimmick team!!"

Needless to say, irony reared it's ugly head when Russell scored a touchdown in the following game...

That's right...in fact, they showed that clip on the Jumbotron at Heinz in tribute to Myron...

The Colts organization is just LAME. First we have Dungy & Co. pleading to the fans to not sell their tickets to Steelers fans and now this...

I was watching KDKA last night. They are giving away the blue towels and then they are selling white towels with the Colts logo on it. Still can't compare to the gold old terrible towel!
