Bracing for the Future
A few weeks ago my news feed pulled the articles from the Colts website and delivered something disturbing to me. During the season (and occasionally during the off season), the website does a Q&A with the head coach on various topics. For last seven years, the article has been titled “Sitting Down with Dungy.” The other week, for the first time, it was titled “Sitting Down with Caldwell.” I wasn’t fooling myself into believing that if I pretended Tony wasn’t retired that it wasn’t true…maybe…sort of. But even reading all the articles when he did retire and knowing that Jim Caldwell had been introduced as his successor, it just didn’t seem quite real until that news feed from the website. And then this pops up on the website this week. The new era for the Indianapolis Colts has arrived, and I either have to jump on the bus or get left behind. Consider my ticket punched.
