It's not too late to set up your Fantasy Football team! Use your favorite fantasy football site (ESPN, Yahoo,, 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.)

6. Scour Etsy for the Best Colts Gear

I'm a firm believer of Etsy -- there's nothing better than people from around the state coming together to give us authentic, handmade (or vintage) Colts gear that really makes us feel like we're part of the team. Click here for the list of items you can find: go ahead, you might find something amazing!

8. Coming Soon: Hayes & Taylor Colts Gear

Even though their Horseshoe Collection pre-order date has passed, you can be sure to check out the newest threads from Hayes & Taylor. Sporting more of a vintage Colts vibe, these guys bring the best threads Colts fans can buy. Stay tuned over the next few weeks, the Colts shirts WILL be back online!
