Appreciation for the colts player attitude

Last week I was able to go to Gary Brackett's Charity event presented by Kroger. It is called the celebrity gridiron challenge and it involves colts players, coaches, and media people playing in a big flag football tournament. It lasts all day and it is an amazing experience. The basic layout is you have an 8 member team with a Player as your celebrity quarterback. My teams QB was Clint Session. Other players that were there; jamie silva, keyunta dawson, Charlie johnson, curtis painter, taj smith, TJ rushing, gary brackett, ed johnson, mike hart, chad simpson, phillip wheeler, pierre garcon, Tony ugoh, eric foster, antonio johnson, roy hall, Ricky thomas, alan willaims...and a few media people. I was able to participate in this event last year as well and it was an absolute awesome experience. The players are all appreciative of us, the fans. They are so open and available for pictures, autographs, even conversation. My little brother and I talked to Mike Hart about his rehab experience. What PROFESSIONAL athlete does that?!?! 

I can't tell you how cool it is to catch a pass from an NFL player and get to celebrate with him as if you are in an actual game against any other NFL team. You look around the field and any player that isn't on the field quarterbacking his team of random fans, he is conversing, taking pictures, autographing.....with other random fans. Seeing the availability and the appreciation that these guys show to us....the fans.....makes me love this team just that much more.
