Jeff Castner is the Assistant Director of Operations at a major university in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he also lives. He is a huge sports fan who supports all of the local teams in Indianapolis, including the Pacers and the Indianapolis Indians minor league baseball team.
So it seems a bit of an anomaly to some of Jeff Castner's friends that he would also be a supporter of the Green Bay Packers. They know that Jeff Castner is a big Indianapolis Colts fan. But the Colts, says Jeff Castner, play in the American Football Conference, while the Packers are in the National Football Conference. So it's okay for him to root for Green Bay.
The Green Bay Packers, as Jeff Castner knows, are one of the most storied teams in National Football League history. The teams of the 1960s, coached by the great Vince Lombardi and led by quarterback Bart Starr, are among the most legendary in the game. Those teams won the first two Super Bowls and are recalled as some of the most dominant to ever walk onto a gridiron. Today, the Vince Lombardi Trophy is awarded to the winner of the annual Super Bowl.
The Indianapolis Colts had some great years too, winning Super Bowl XLI in 2007. That team was led by Peyton Manning, now the Denver Broncos' quarterback. But the Colts have Andrew Luck calling the plays, and as Jeff Castner knows, Andrew Luck is one of the most promising quarterbacks to come into the league in many years.
There could come a day when the Packers and Colts go head to head in the Super Bowl. If that day should come to pass, it's no contest. Jeff Castner will be pulling for the Colts all the way.
