2. Set Up Your Fantasy Football Team

It's not too late to set up your Fantasy Football team! Use your favorite fantasy football site (ESPN, Yahoo, NFL.com, etc.) and get to researching. Whether you spend an hour a week or an hour a day on the site, make sure all of your friends know you're choosing Andrew Luck as your main QB.

3. Plan for an Amazing Pre-Game Cookout

Don't look too hard to find the best grilling food for your pre-game cookout: Smoking Goose in Indianapolis has the best meats and cheeses in town. From Hot Italian Sausages, Applewood Smoked Bacon and more, you and your buds are at least going to have a winning meal!

4. For Fans over the Age of 21: Drink Local Beer

If you're going to have a beer or two (or three, I'm not judging) during the game, at least make it Hoosier-brewed! Check out Sun King's Osiris, Three Floyd's Alpha King, or Bloomington Brew's Rooftop IPA among others. For a list of Indiana's best summer beers, be sure to check this out, and remember to drink responsibly! (And isn't the picture below phenomenal? Holy moly.)

Click here for the list of items you can find: go ahead, you might find something amazing!

7. Check Out These Hoosier Dome Products

I mentioned these guys in my last Buzzfeed article, and I think they're worth mentioning again. Using re-purposed materials from the Hoosier Dome, People for Urban Progress have created amazing products that bleed blue and white: wallets, purses, shaving kits, card holders, and more. The difference between being a good Colts fan and a great Colts fan isn't just how much Colts gear you have...but it REALLY helps!
