The Band That Wouldn't Die
If you guys missed this, you missed a fantastic documentary about the Baltimore Colts leaving. It was on ESPN last night,and it is an incredible story of just how much the COlts meant to this city and how their leaving ripped out the heart of Baltimore for 12 years.
It also shows what an absolutely insane nutbag Irsay was. And what a classless d-ickhead Paul Tagliabue is, was, and always will be.
The main theme however talks about after the Colts left, how the Baltimore Colts Marching band would not stop playing. And how they toured NFL cities playing halftime shows to try to get football back to Baltimore. And how the Modell'smainly David used them to bridge the gap between the old Colts fans and the new Baltimore football fans to be like myself.
It brought back a lot of memories for me of the struggle to try to get an NFL team when I was growing up. I remember the "Give Baltimore The Ball" days, and how Tagliabue screwed us out of an expansion franchise to give it to blackout central Jacksonville.....smooth move d-ickhead!
In closing, great use of an hour of your time.....
Paul Tagliabue is a d-ickhead!!
Art Modell is an absolute Saint!!!!
HALL OF FAMER!

JUSTIN BLACKMON IS A GOLDEN GOD!
