As if a home Thanksgiving night primetime game against the Pittsburgh Steelers wasn’t enough to get fans fired up, we can add another thing to the schedule for that night: Marvin Harrison will receive his Hall of Fame ring.
That’s according to CBS4’s Mike Chappell, who said this morning that the Colts will give Harrison his Hall of Fame ring at the Colts’ November 24 game at Lucas Oil Stadium, which is the Thanksgiving matchup against the Steelers.
It’s unclear what the exact plans are regarding that honor, but it likely will include a halftime presentation to the team’s new Hall of Fame wide receiver, after which the fans will undoubtedly be fired up. And honestly, what better time to do it than during a nationally televised game on a holiday?
The recognition will come just days after the franchise honors the ten-year anniversary of their Super Bowl XLI victory. On November 20, during the team’s home game against the Tennessee Titans, the Colts will host a reunion for the 2006 team that went on a remarkable postseason run to win the city’s first Lombardi Trophy. The team will have festivities surrounding that weekend but will also honor that team during halftime of the November 20 game. Four days later, the team will present Marvin Harrison with his Hall of Fame ring during the Colts’ Thursday night game. That will be a pretty cool stretch to reminisce about Colts history, to be sure.
