Blue Monday kicks off Colts home opener

Blue Monday kicks off Colts home opener

It’s the team’s first Monday Night Football game since 2010, and a lot of events are planned before kick-off.
At 6:30 a.m., the city and the Colts planned to turn the Canal blue, but that was indefinitely postponed. It’s unclear what the problem was, though it was clear the containers used to dye the Canal were empty. Officials said the Canal would be dyed at 10 a.m.
Monday afternoon, Colts mascot Blue and the Blue Fan Van will make two stops downtown to hand out prizes to Colts fans in Colts gear: on Monument Circle at 8 a.m. and Georgia Street at noon.
Also at lunchtime on Georgia Street, fans are invited to a pep rally with food trucks, Colts cheerleaders, a DJ and mascot Blue. That’s from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Just ahead of the game outside Lucas Oil Stadium, the American Family Insurance Touchdown Town runs from 4:30 to 8 p.m. with live music, food, drinks, the Play 60 Zone for kids and a zipline.
Colts players say they’re ready to get back to work in front of a home crowd.
“It’s always a nice buzz for a Monday night game, especially because it’s the home opener,” said Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck. “To get in front of the fans at Lucas Oil is what’s important. We know we’ve got to go out there after a great week of work and give our fans something to be proud of.”
Fans heading to Monday’s game or any game this season are reminded of the NFL’s bag policy. Big purses and coolers are not allowed. Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags 12″ x 6″ x 12″ or smaller and small clutch bags are allowed.
