Colts Quick Hits: April 11

Eric Hartz gets fans caught up on the Colts news of the week they may have missed in Quick Hits. Leading the way in a slow news week are ticket information on the Hall of Fame game, the results of this week's ColtPower forum poll, and more!

The first hot tickets of the season go on sale Monday when a "very limited" number of tickets will go on sale for the Hall of Fame game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins, in Canton, Ohio, Aug. 3.

The tickets can be purchased at profootballhof.com or calling 800-913-9788 starting Monday at 11 a.m. ET. They are sideline and end zone seats and will be sold for $50 and $40 each, respectively. There is a limit of six tickets per order. The Hall of Fame says it expects an immediate sellout of these seats, so be sure to have your computer ready when the clock strikes 11 a.m. Monday.

Tickets are also still available for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony before the game. Those are $27 apiece.

Are any ColtPower fans planning on making the trip for the Hall of Fame weekend? If you are, be sure to let us know in the forums, and check back in after the trip to tell us about your experiences.

Forum feedback:

This week's completely unscientific ColtPower poll asked "What's your second-favorite NFL team?" and the answers were all over the board.

There was actually a tie at the top between "I hate everyone except the Colts" and the current Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Both received 11 votes and combined for 42 percent of the total votes cast.

The Green Bay Packers received six votes (11.5 percent) while "anyone playing the Patriots" got five votes (9.6 percent). The Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns each got three votes.

Other teams receiving votes were: Detroit, Cincinnati, St. Louis, San Diego, Denver, Arizona, and Philadelphia.

Two-minute drill:

• BusinessWire.com reported this week that Colts defensive tackle Raheem Brock has signed on with Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. to open three franchises in his hometown of Philadelphia.

Brock told BusinessWire.com, "I love the food and the simple concept of focusing on great wings and sides. The ease of operations makes it an attractive business."

It's good to see the Colts getting involved in business interests outside of football and investing their large salaries. Let's just hope Brock doesn't love the wings too much.

• It sounds like the Patriots may be interested in another reclamation project. A year after signing troubled receiver Randy Moss, New England has reportedly contacted another NFL ne'er-do-well, Tennessee cornerback Pacman Jones, according to Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper.

Jones has been suspended for over a year by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after a series of run-ins with the law that culminated with involvement in a shooting outside a Las Vegas strip club that left a man paralyzed.

According to McCormick, New England hasn't formally approached Jones about playing for them.

• With the NFL Draft just under two weeks away, the clock is ticking for the Miami Dolphins and the rest of the NFL's teams.

We've got plenty of more prospect profiles to roll out here at ColtPower before the draft, so be sure to check in daily to see who the Colts may call on April 26 and 27.

• Bob Lamey, the radio voice of the Colts, will be inducted into the Indiana Sportswriters and Sportscasters Hall of Fame Saturday night. Click here to hear some of Lamey's classic radio calls at Colts.com.
