I was flipping through the channels and came across the 1969 Super Bowl. Super Bowl lll
I was 14 years old and had been a Baltimore Colts fan since beginning to watch football. Oh how that game broke my heart.
Joe was the first to raise a finger with the number on sign.
A very close game. 16 to 7. The Colts were expected to win But…..
It wasn’t until 1973 when Burt Jones became quarter back he began moving the team forward. Of course this was the time of the Pittsburgh Stealers and the Colts just couldn’t make it past them. No one could. Burt was a great player until he was hurt.
It was kind of crazy the way the Colts left Baltimore and moved to Indianapolis.
It’s a new era for the Colts now with Payton being hurt.
I have lost most of my interest in pro football. I love the college games. I don’t miss the supper bowl every year.
