On Sunday, February 7th, the Indianapolis Colts will play the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl XLIV.  By the end of this post, see if you can you guess for whom I am rooting…

According to www.funtrivia.com, Baltimore’s first pro football team played in the All-America Football Conference from 1946-1949.

Per www.rauzulusstreet.com, a fan contest produced the Colts name – reflecting the great tradition and proud history of horse breeding and racing in the Baltimore region.

The original Colts disbanded after the 1950 season, but the name was retained when a new Baltimore franchise began play in 1953. The team moved to Indianapolis in 1984.

  4. I grew up in the Baltimore area and have lived in Indiana for the past 21 years. Sad day when the Colts left MD. But who knew I’d one day be in the same state with them again. BTW – thanks for that sweet tea recipe! Tee hee! I’m sure that is the way my MIL makes tea!
