Colts fans gearing up for Monday Night Football matchup against Chargers

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Fans of the Indianapolis Colts have only a few hours to wait until their team takes on the Los Angeles Chargers for Monday Night Football on WISH-TV.

Being in the “fighting spirit” is one way to describe Colts fans who are ready to see the team’s matchup against the Chargers.

One of those fans is Rick Stevens, better known by his social media handle, “Colts Caveman.”

Stevens is known for dressing up in Colts gear at games, and at home, he has a room decked out in wall-to-wall Colts swag to show his support.

Stevens tells News 8 that despite a rough season, he’s committed for the long haul. He says that dedicated fans like himself are proud to cheer on the Colts and that Monday Night Football games are some of the best games all year.

“As a Colts fan, I love the primetime games. I love that we’re the only show in town. I love that we get highlighted and the spotlight is on the Colts and the Colts organization. I’m still a Colts fan. I still want them to win. I still want them to be that team,” Stevens said.

Stevens also says Monday Night Football is a chance for fans to support initiatives like the Irsay family’s “Kicking the Stigma” initiative, which helps bring support and awareness to mental health issues.
