The kickoff of the NFL regular season is next week, and we can’t wait! But today, we want to focus the 2007 Super Bowl champs – the Indianapolis Colts. As impressed as we were by their performance on that soggy field in February, it was how the team conducted themselves off the field that really stood out to us.
