    Default So I'm going to my first ever Colt's preseason game Saturday......

    & I'm very excited!
    My mom read on our local paper that there were some tickets that were left over. So she went on ticketmaster and bought two tickets for her and I. We're all the way up near the top.

    We've both never been to a Colt's game, & we've never been in the RCA Dome before.

    So my question is; what should I expect? Any good advice?
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    don't park at the mall thinking that you'll get off cheaper. without proof of shopping it costs $25.00 to get out of that place there is alot going on at pan am plaza before the game so be sure to go early.

    The best place to park (if you don't mind walking 4 blocks or so) is the Lilly Lot just south of Conseco on Delaware St. It's only $3 and is an easy walk to the Dome!

    The last game I went to we parked at Conseco. Granted it was a few years ago (pre-Dungy era), but it was a lot cheaper so I didn't mind the walk so much.

    As for when you get to the stadium be prepared to walk up a TON of stairs. I'm assuming you and your mother are young enough to take it. Me, just the thought of walking up 300 stairs makes me want to cry.

    I'm sure you'll have a great time!

    Parking in that Conseco lot seems to be the parking lot of choice, if that's the one you guys are speaking of and I'm thinking of.

    If it's your first time for any of it you'll have a good time. Take binoculars though.

    Enjoy the experience. I'm assuming a blizzard won't be blowing in, and hopefully there won't be a monsoon either... so it should be easy to walk from about anywhere you choose. You should see plenty of places to park (closer is more expensive). Pick the best deal vs the amount of walking you want to tolerate and go for it. Don't try and get all the way to the stadium... but do make sure you can SEE the RCA Dome from where you park

    Being a preseason game, it likely won't be as rowdy and the crowd might calm down a little sooner than they would for a regular season game, but it should still be fun. Especially for first timers. Prepare to be hooked and wanting to do it again!

    & we could probably invest in some binoculars.

    You know, if the season ticket waiting list is at 23000, is there even a point to adding yourself on it?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Update:
    So I'm sitting here, doing nothing, I figured I would tell everyone how my experience went. Since everyone gave me such good advice.

    Anyways, after the Fever game, we walked over to our hotel. (We ended up getting reservations at the Crowne Point Plaza.) Which is a very nice hotel btw. Then we got our Colts stuff on and got all hyped up for that. In the Crowne Point Plaza there's an overpass that leads right straight to the Dome.
    So, therefore, we didn't have to take all the stairs like everyone else did. So we crossed over to the Dome area, got in our gateway, then we looked at different things, and got drinks before we went in there. You guys were right when you said we would climb alot of stairs! But anyways, the game was great, the atmosphere was great in the arena. There were some Detroit fans around us though. They were all quite after the first quarter, haha. We didn't really need any binoculars, we could see the numbers and all that. My mom doesn't know much about football though, so I had to explain the game to her. I think she was paying too much attention to Peyton Manning, IMO. The only time binoculars would have came in handy is when the players were all on the sideline. Since they're all bunched up you can't really tell who's who.

    Things I got:
    *I got one of those game books you get when you come thru the doors.
    *Colts beads.
    *A six piece set of pins; which included Peyton, Dwight, Reggie, Sanders, Clark, Harrison.
    *A Colts bear to go with my Pacers one.
    I think that's it.

    But all in all, it was a great experience, the crowd was great, everything was great. I bet we'll probably go to a lot more, they are addicting as some people said.

    You got to see a great game. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Fever huh? So you got to see two Indy teams smoke their opponents.

    There is a song that is played at the beginning of Colts' games. It starts off with the lyrics of "Ladies and Gentlemen..." It is a harder rock song. Anyone know what the song is?

    I haven't heard it at a Colts game, as I've never been to one, but I'd bet it's the song "Ladies and Gentlemen" by Saliva.
