This weekend the Indianapolis Colts will host the ten-year reunion of their Super Bowl XLI championship team.
Owner Jim Irsay is flying in everyone who could make it and they will celebrate and catch up, and they’ll also be presented to the crowd at Lucas Oil Stadium at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans - and they’ll surely receive a huge ovation from Colts fans.
It was a special group, one that was finally able to get past the New England Patriots in a thrilling AFC Championship game and then defeat the Chicago Bears 29-17 in the Super Bowl to win the Lombardi Trophy.
The reunion figures to be quite impressive as well, as there are 50 people expected to attend! We’ve mentioned already this week several of the more notable former players who will attend, but the Colts sent out the full list in their game release this week. Here’s the group of players, coaches, and executives expected to be in Indianapolis this weekend. And though it doesn’t include wide receiver Marvin Harrison or head coach Tony Dungy, both men will be in attendance on Thanksgiving night as the Colts and the Hall of Fame present them with their Hall of Fame rings. Plus, pass rusher Robert Mathis and kicker Adam Vinatieri will be able to catch up with their former teammates, but they’re part of the current team as well.
