The Green Bay Packers travel to face the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday and a lot of Packers fans will probably be traveling with the team.
The game is sold out, which is something that hasn’t been a foregone conclusion since Peyton Manning went on the shelf. That has Colts interim coach Bruce Arians worried.
“Having been against the Packers,’’ he said Thursday, “I know how their fans travel. No way can they come into Lucas Oil this week and take over our stadium.”
“I’m challenging our fans, especially this week because it’s kind of a unique, special thing,” Arians said.
A pro-Packers backdrop, he added, “cannot happen. (The fans) need to be at an all-time high for Chuck and for the team.
“We cannot allow the Cheeseheads to come in here and take over.”
Arians is referring to Colts coach Chuck Pagano, who has been diagnosed with leukemia and will miss his first game while undergoing treatment.
Arians has good reason to be worried.
What happens when the cheeseheads take over? Probably something like this.
