Very interesting and somewhat shocking story by ESPN's Paul Kuharsky:

I arrived to cover the NFL combine Wednesday and I was on the same flight from the West with several NFL prospects, who were heading to Indy to show scouts what they've got. None of the prospects was more recognizable than Andrew Luck, the highly-decorated Stanford quarterback. Luck is widely expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the April draft by the Indianapolis Colts and he is expected to take over for Manning this season.

Yet, when Luck got off the plane, he walked through the terminal and patiently waited for his belongings at the baggage claim just like everyone else. Not one person went up to him or even turned their head when the tall kid in jeans and tennis shoes walked by.

Kind of amazing, isn't it?

Andrew Luck, the guy who will likely become the face of the Indianapolis Colts franchise this April, showed up in Indy just like a regular schmuck.He better enjoy it now, because after April he won't be able to go anywhere in Indianapolis without someone hounding him.
